Hi folks,

Just signed up as I've picked up another 4x4 recently and I'm planning to use it off road a bit more than my other one Smile

For anyone interested I'm Josh, I live in Seaford which is a small town just down the coast from Brighton. I'm a bit of a petrol head and I've always got about 10-15 cars on my hands at any one time, some are long term projects and others are either impulse buys that I run short term or cars I import from Japan in small volumes to sell.

The latest 4x4 I've picked up is one I took in exchange for a car I was selling, it's a J reg Toyota Hilux Surf. It's one of the lower spec models, a 2.4 SSR Limited, but it does the job for lugging the dogs around (I have two big labs!) and it seems ok off road - I took it to Slindon Safari on Sunday and was really surprised with what it could do! I only got stuck once when I took a risk with some deep water Embarassed Someone in a Disco kindly extracted me and all was well Very Happy



My other 4x4 is an Isuzu Bighorn Lotus Edition, with the 3.1 intercooled turbo diesel lump in it. It's great for towing and holds the road really well, but I've not used it in anger off road as it's my towing vehicle so it's on tarmac tyres. Plus I just don't want to smash it up Laughing



I have a second one of these in the form of the badge engineered Honda Horizon, but It's got a trashed auto box so it's mainly just a parts donor for the Isuzu.

I'm looking forward to being part of the forum! I think I'd like to try and track down some local folks to go off roading with at some point - do we have a local groups section or something similar?

Cheers,
Josh

Hi & welcome.

I live in Polegate.

I try and get to Slindon whenever I can, but in reality it is only a couple of times a year.

Let me know when you are next going and we can maybe meet up.

Or let me know if you fancy going for a beer at some point.

Not that far along the coast in Eastbourne, still getting my SJ finished but would be good to meet up with other Sussex locals even if just for a beer as Big Dunc suggested.
