Welcome to the "club" of enjoying your troll... only gets better the more time you spend in it !

Nowdays I dont watch fuel consumption figures... only the gps coords of fueling points ;)

Happy Patrolling, Peter

We all fall in that trap. My wife is 5 foot and a poep tall. My troll is lifted by 10 " plus I,ve got 35" rubber. She dont get into the Troll she do the shimpansee swing thing on the panic handle to swing in but once she is in she refuse to get out behind the steering as she wants to do all the things men do and more. Becomes a maniac and I must hold on not to leave the truck through the window. I therefore know how you feel and if this carry on I will have to look for another 4x4 for myself.

By the way how do one post pictures on this site?
