Ja jong.
That car has given me amazing service, help created amazing family memories, and drove some amazing obstacles - no matter what people had to say about low down torque and all.

Ja I think the new toys will help me to move on!

I will still start a Skilpad thread at some point.
With the branches, slower diffs, big external fuel pump and lighter body, it is the strongest car I have ever owned.
