Hi everyone just wanted to say hello, will have lots of questions to ask as first Jeep and first 4x4, will post pictures as things develop whilst revitalizing my ZJ, biggest problem at moment is insurance, trying to get classic car, but even normal cover trebles if I mention any mods, is this normal?

Lee,

 

Welcome to the club, yes insurance is always a heated topic.

 

I know a number of club members, myself included, use A-plan, which specialises in modified and classic.

 

Cheers Neal

I use LV (direct, not through broker or comparison site, but trawl through them first!)

All mods declared, tow bar, suspension, winch, etc, no extra premium, fully comp, protected no claims, also use for charitable purposes (4x4Response) (£216)

But everyone's different!!

        TOW BAR A MOD I'd have thought a tow bar was standard as I've never seen a Jeep without one.

Tow  Bar - this has been mentioned on here before. Although many vehicles have one I don't know of any vehicles that are manufactured with one fitted in the factory as standard unless ordered at time of sale. Might be wrong on that?

They are added by dealer or fitted later. Ipso facto they are a mod to the vehicle. But check with your own insurer. Remember, they are not in business to pay out to you, only to make money for themselves, so any excuse not to pay out!

Ours went in for the recall last year to have an extra cross member fitted behind the fuel tank that’s wear the tow bar support brackets are

On inspection found a vary large lpg tank instead

Very much agree. Curious how many models have been affected by the recall. My Jeep Cherokee/ Liberty was recalled for this as well.
