Finally got offroad..........

OK, I'll admit it's not very impressive!

When we had our Hi-lux Surf a few years back I used to be quite into green laning, but at the moment it's hard to find time to breathe let along go off into the countyside in the Jeep however we have this little track near to us so I thought I'd give it a quick go. Sadly the weather's very dry at the moment so no mud to play in, will go back after some rain!

Happy to say the Jeeps running well though, very smooth and quiet, bit rolly polly compared to the ZT but that's to be expected. Haven't yet filled it with gas however the trip computers showing just over 20mpg which in cost terms means it's getting the equivalent of 40mpg......not bad for a 4.7 V8 :)

Nah, I'm not brave enough to go anywhere that i'm likely to get stuck in!
