It would have been a right pain in the ass to run the winch cable down the chassis leg to the front for self recovery:-)

Thats a great read .. Tell me did you have to give the tool box back??

 

Having done 100's of miles in a petrol Explorer during the 1980's I think he is a bit of a wimp about how uncomfortable they are. My now wife as a girlfriend then did once actually curl up on the twin passenger seat and go to sleep on the way back from the now imfamous Town and Country Festival in Stonleigh Warwickshire, (110 miles from Stockport). She did however learn on the first outing to always were a sports bra for any subsequent trips out in the Explorer !!!

Got to say I love driving mine about, I take it out most weeks (would drive it more if the diesel wasn't so expensive) and it must rattle more than yours Kevin. I can see yours being slow with the Gardner in it, mine runs sweet at about 27mph and will top 30 if I thrash it.
