  5. “Front tow hitch” I use on my 2004 WJ is a rear Ford Transit item. Fits WJ chassis rails, front lower louvre grille opening....and works a treat. Best part.......can be sourced in the UK!

  7. I knew some guys that threw the switch on the national hydros that boost the grid on demand. It has been close to max capacity many times. I don't buy the argument that just because one power source can't meet demand we discount it. But I agree it is marketing panacea that we can carry on regardless thanks to the Tesla and co sooth sayers. And if we found/released a limitless power source, that really would bring about catastrophy on a giddy high regarding other resources. Looking at Covid impacts, I suspect nature's cycles will have the last word. I have b

  8. Well, I've no intention of getting into an argument here, but I said emissions charge not congestion. I could have helped protect a job or too by paying someone else to build the 4.6 for my Jeep, instead of doing it myself. Jobs can only come from demand and need. We could have stayed reliant on coal too to protect jobs, or stop the sale of alcohol outside of pubs, or keep slavery, or bear baiting. The world moves on and needs change. Of course revenue will have to come from somewhere and doubtless tax will change too, but not for years. The environment needs help now. And apart from all that,

  9. Unfortunately you have gone about it the wrong way around. If the issue was reported to the supplier within 30 days and they have done nothing to rectify the issue you are still entitled to REJECT the Jeep despite all the mileage as the time is suspended until the issue is rectified to the satisfaction of both parties. If the issue was reported after the initial 30 days and within 6 months of delivery you have to give the supplier one chance at repair. If this fails then you can request a refund. Have a read through Consumer Rights Act 2015 and you will see that the law is on YOUR side

  10. Good move. From my experience the market for paying you to rent your Jeep for media is more fragmented then Covid advice. And that’s pretty fragmented.

  12. Getting close to engine back in the car day.... I have given it some more Chevy orange paint to go over various joints and some scratches, then ancillaries on, engine mounts on, manifolds, thermostat on etc... The fuel rail and all the bits that go on top of the manifold will go on after the engine is in, same for the dizzy and leads. I may just take the steering pump and alternator off again to make it a bit more easy to get to the engine mounts. But I've put those and the belt on for now to make sure everything is in the right place and fits. The eagle-eyed may have noted there's

  15. Hi all, in case this is useful to anyone else. I have been looking for a roof rack for my WK2 that will take the weight for a roof tent. Reading on the subject suggests the existing 6 fixing points in the roof really aren’t up to much, and you need to get the weight out onto the pinch weld and remove the ability for it to rock. Plenty of options in Aus, but expensive to get the full model by the time it’s imported etc: and I am not keen on the UK versions. So I imported just the roof rails, from Chief Products, and then purchased within the UK, DEMAR van roof bars

  17. .....well, since, at least for the moment, it is possible to get out and about a few of us did spend last weekend out on Salisbury Plains. A club favourite and always a good one hopefully we’ll be able to get a JOC day out there again soon.. 59898861-AF82-46DE-B212-2272CD6B5C70.MP4

  18. Laning days would be my preference. That way we can have small groups and we don't have to worry so much about social distancing and can keep to the "rule of six".

  19. Think I have solved this an alternative way. Could t get replacement bulb holders easily, and checking mine they had heat marks on the outer but the contacts themselves where good. So thinking of how to reduce the heat, fitted a couple of LED bulbs off of Amazon. So far so good, no issues since over the last 800 miles fingers crossed.

  23. Spookie, I think the tyre issues depends on the Jeep....... I fitted 245 70 17 BF Goodrich AT K02's and mine caught the front bumper when reversing..... BFG's are also on the smaller side of the sizes. Just because you have a 2 inch lift dont assume that you wont have to trim that front bumper. I know Frosty hasn't had to trim anything with his fitted without a lift. Just saying i still had too with a lift on mine. However, I do have the later front bumper, maybe there was a slight change in dimensions Jeep is looking good though

  30. My Dad had 16" bar grips on Hotchkiss rims on his Mahindra CJ3B. It was canvas top and built as a military style replica by a previous owner. Dad drove it all year round on bar grips. He hated winter driving, not because of the open cabin but because of his bar grips on the road were awful. Eventually they wore a strange tapered flat on one side which we thought was probably all of the roundabouts on his journey. Before he decided to sell it, we were going to try 7.50x16 Land Rover tyres UK supplier of 16" bar grips

  32. Stay with 16s! One purpose of going larger diameter is to get greater sidewall depth. If I could fit 16s I would have done. If you want larger diameter tyres for increased diff clearance, you can still get that with 16s.

  34. Current energy production is a disaster and there isn't enough power now in the grid, never mind trying to power millions of EV's. Wind power only works when the wind blows its a complete joke (on us) Also with current battery tech there isn't enough materials to supply UK never mind the rest of the world. Came across this “In order to save the planet we will have to destroy it”. “And the size of the battery means that they require huge quantities of materials in their manufacture. If we replace all of the UK vehicle fleet with EVs, and assuming they use the most

  35. Why not approach Dyson and ask if he can design a clockwork wind up engine like Noddy's car? Now that is being really environmentally friendly plus getting fit winding it up every couple of miles. LOL.

  36. Update. Dealer eventually admitted that they had done the incorrect service and that i should not have been charged for the loan car. They have agreed to pay for fuel to travel there and back again as for us it is a 140 mile round trip. I am happy with the resolution as previously we have had very good service from the dealer. It is also a dealer where members of this forum sometimes go for coffee mornings.

  42. It is not just Jeep Dealers of course! I have a long list of horror stories about dealers, Vauxhall, Nissan, & Jaguar to name a few! Funnily enough, I have not had a problem with Chrysler/Jeep dealers - cos I don't use them! Ho Ho. I don't think I have 'mug' tattooed on my forehead, but they all got taken to task. That's the only ammunition you have got - knowing a bit about cars and checking what work they have, or more likely, have not, done. I have in the past gone out to my car, lifted the bonnet, and checked before driving off. The look on their face can be pricel
