I plan to keep it for a couple of years, my friend owns a garage and we had it on the ramp yesterday and it is sound - apart from a couple of suspension parts which cost about 40 quid :o

I'll be flogging my other Jeep the blue off roader in a few weeks once I change round my personal plate - yes I know some folk find personal plates sad :| but the days when only toffs fitted them are long gone.

There's nothing wrong with personal plates (except for not wanting people to know how old your car is) but I have a problem with private plates that you cant make out what theyre saying, isnt the whole point to make a name or something? Seems kind of pointless when they cant be interpreted.

My plate is J2 ARC for Archie of course. Private plates are a great investment they never drop in price :o the only disadvantage is the £80 transfer fee you have to pay to those wonderful people at the DVLA whenever you move it to another car :x

It's the rare 2.5 petrol with a manual box, it's not permanent 4WD but has a lever to select it. Insurance for me is £140 a year fully comp :o
The Jeep is mainly for off roading with the 3" lift etc, I bought it because I was selling my Jag and needed a cheap car to get me around until I found a decent Grand V8.

Those concrete tiles have shifted a bit, how did you level the ground beneath them? You'd think they'd be all topsy turvy in the wet. Nice sunny day though, folks in the south are getting sunburn.
That's quite a cart Archie, congratulations & drive carefully, there's no accounting for nutters on the road (or cheeky puppies on white leather, bless). Tasty bird? I envy you. The only tasty bird in this lame excuse for a town comes from Colonel Saunders and arrives in a bucket :roll:

They moved when I parked a fully loaded cart on them, the Westie will soon have the white seats a different shade :x

Got rid of the Sedona. Decided it was crap. Now got a Honda CRV. The one that looks a bit Land roverish. Not sure if thats a word but it sounds okay. Much better to drive and seems okay off road.

I recently bought a Range Rover P38 its the V8 4 litre petrol auto model - but it has an LPG kit which costs about half the price of petrol.
It has all the extras 20" wheels black leather int, air con etc, Sadly the Jag will have to go :(
However my brother is buying the Jag as soon as I get the personal plate transfered.
