  1. Yesterday
  2. Oops, I see the date now!
  3. Hi Karlos What is the date for the show in September? We can gauge interest and see. I am in Warwickshire and always up for cars and coffee or Jeeps and Java. Jim
  4. Hinckley in Leicestershire have a classic car show in September. They mainly specialise in pre-2000 Card but there is a section for vehicles of special interest. They had a smaller local meeting tonight which I went down to in my.2014 JKU just to look around. Whilst I was there I spoke to the organisers, firstly they didn't have a clue what a Wrangler was and secondly my car would probably be too new to be involved on its own. ( unless I took at least the roof off) Although they did say they could reserve an area for Jeeps if I wanted to arrange a Jeep gathering. It would mean meeting up prior and then convoy altogether into the meeting. There will be over 800 cars on show. So, the question is "Would anyone be interested in turning up?" I'll sort with the organiser if there is interest. I've also only been a Jeep Owner for 6 months so the other question is "Is there any Jeep owners in Leicestershire/Warwickshire who'd be interested in meeting up for Sunday morning coffee, bacon butties and Jeep chat? Or is there already a meet up somewhere?"

    A sad (ish) day 😕

    Ha ! I will admit the tec pad on the dash was a mare to get on with... i was trying to navigate traffic and ... set the radio.... set the air con ... set the sat nav ( gave up on that was far to complicated to just jump in to and go ) then I tried to turn the radio up .... !! No simple knob to turn for that then ? Started pushing the buttons on the stealing wheel ! Big mistake the readout then changes where the Speedo is ! I don’t know how I managed to get home with out crashing tbh ... i wish they would keep the simple things in life like knobs ? And easy sat nav its prob rob just my age ...
  12. Next years event will be on Sunday 5th July and applications for club stands will open in October. If we have enough interest, I’m sure we could look to give the LR a run for their money.

    Summer Camp 2019

    until

    I think it looks gr8. Last year at Bala was excellent. Well planned and thoroughly enjoyable. Good offroading, lots of fun, and some really splendid food at the BBQ with live band and at the local pub. The guys had put in some serious groundwork and it showed. I reckon it'll be the same this year and there's the extra theme night as well! For anyone staying a bit there's plenty to do roundabout too. Fantastic scenery, lots of gr8 lanes , and the fly fishing of course. Also there's walking , climbing and caving. Regarding the latter, I have to mention the ''Gaping Ghyll'' Winch meet 2019'' which runs this year from the 9th to the 16th August . Its open to the public and is a must for thrill seekers who wish to see the biggest drop waterfall in the UK. Get there early, the queues can be long , and take rubber pants if you don't like heights. Happy Jeepin!

    Yeah, I do really like it, have always liked the little Renegades and the facelift is an improvement I think. Too much tech though, delivery was delayed a day because of a software fault Funnily enough the first time I got in it to drive home from work I came up to a roundabout and dropped in behind a brand new JL ( with the reg WR14GLR ) one of the very rare occasions that happens and I wasn’t in my Wrangler so didn’t feel I could Jeep wave

    A sad (ish) day 😕

    Today I have....... .......retired my JKU as my daily driver after 76+ thousand miles and nearly 5 years. It’s a bit sad as I’ll miss the smiles I get every time I get in it but needed something to take the miles and the pressure off it and also reduce the fuel costs. So today I said hello to my new daily drive, Jeep number five a 1.0l Renegade Limited. It’s not a 4x4 Jeep sadly (fuel economy won out ) but I console myself with the fact that I don’t actually own it, just renting it for 3 years.

    @digger you probably right on the "urban racing", I'll think about it as my Renegade is the 2nd biggest expense I have and don't want to do anything to lose it. What time is the green laning happening as we were to drive up on Friday morning and it seems that camp checkin is at 1pm

    We all know about really serious offroading and what extremely difficult and challenging terrain can be overcome, or not, resulting in possible major damage. Take a look at the british trials champs if you want to see some. Even at our events some of our members tackle some amazingly tough obstacles, but you don't have to. Insurance folk always tell you to worry and the industry has to assume the worst possible scenario. Tony is right. If you stick with sensible people, driving shiny cars and do what the leaders tell you you should be able to find plenty to keep you happy at our events. Nowadays I use my classic YJ for offroad events. Even though I've been off road in one way or another all my life, I'm not an expert, and the last thing I want to do is damage my car because its almost irreplaceable. Scratches can be an issue on some routes so I carry a pair of garden loppers and a pruning saw for chopping off anything ominous. Common sense rules, its your decision and your responsibility. I'm sure other members with Renegades can help with your tow point queries etc. At the end of the day, you probably take more risk 'urban racing' than you will offroading and you won't be insured doing that either. (Ps if you want to drive fast take up real motor racing, you will soon find out how good you are. Lol)

    My tow hook goes in the spot marked on my front bumper. There are no other recovery points. I have a Longitude with very low clearance. Great for Urban racing. I've bested a few Audis and BMWs but off roading in this is taking a chance.
  26. I'm sure there would be but sadly the cash is going to Juventus https://www.90min.com/posts/6332533-ranking-the-top-20-most-lucrative-shirt-sponsorship-deals-in-european-football What a waste !
