While I have to say that looks a cracking truck, I have to ask…why? Now, I can see a great tool there, combined with great grin factor, but what I'm getting at is what's the use you're going to put it to? Hiab, Tipper? Logging……?

a complete all rounder is the plan rich, logging, building, carting stuff about. a hiab is a really handy tool and will get plenty of use around here.
it will also be nice to have a second motor, my 80 has been my only car for 13 years, theres been too many occasions when ive been working in the cold late on a sunday night putting stuff back on the 80 ready for work Monday morning, will be nice to leave it until the following weekend and jump in the moggy..

I also need to take the 80 off the road at some point and strip the body, take the glass out and have a full re spray including any welding.

ill change use over to agricultural so no road tax or mot and very cheap insurance.
















oh, and it rocks..:auto-layrubber:

It might not be a Landcruiser more like an Invader now all you have to do is join up with Olazz and swap ideas good luck with it
