    I have a Dixon 1/4 section which after buying, i realised i didnt need as my chassis is still good. But its a very well made item, looks and feels the part, very heavy duty. Id use them again. He takes ages to deliver but if you are ok with that, no worries. Get it galvanised by them too.

    Most half chassis are not, that is my issue as the rot starts on the ARB mounts.

    The MOT tester said front part is fine and that with all the extras a full swap would take ages (such as all the ACE pipes).

    Bits over the tank are basically welded panels, done about 4 years ago. ARB was welded 2 years ago

    Dunno if this is relevant, but the bloke who welded up my chassis talked about fitting a 1/3 chassis. Obv less than a half, but he said he did them quite often and quoted me a decent price.

    It is nearly 19 years old so not too bad.
