Probably not the correct forum for this, but never the less.

I've been talked by friends in to doing local enduro's on the xr. Haven't really done any in the last couple of years. The Saab used to get bogged down in wet mud, grass, any thing slightly damp as it had too much power hence it wasn't very good a towing a trailer. So me and the wife have just bought this thing. Shouldn't get stuck anywhere and will help save the driving licence when on the by-pass/ motorways.








The saab is now in the for sale section

i got a ford ranger wildtrack 3 yrs ago and have covered 48,000 miles so far, brilliant for towing the ktm, i put a hardtop on the back to carry all my bits and pieces ( and to carry the dog rather than have him slobbering all over the interior) the only downside is fuel consumption is fugging horrendous and parking can be a pain in the arse trying to find a big enough space. the upside is road presence, never been done for speeding, comfortable and can carry loads of crap. its been completely reliable the servicing being carried out by neighbour (nissan/vauxhall mechanic), still on original rear tyres and original brake pads all round. the only problem i've had is the front fog lights fell apart and the supplying dealer being completely crap (Birchwood ford in Hastings/Eastbourne). insurance is good as well.

OOPS you may just regret that remark !!!!:D:D

Having owned and run 5 LR defenders , one thing I know for certain is ...... you will get stuck eventually.

TYRES TYRES TYRES - 4x4 counts for booger all if you can't find traction.

Most folk with posey 4x4s run a dueller type tyre - big and fat and look great in the driveway, run well on the road , but totally useless on wet grass and Mud.

Mud Tyres are probably best for UK offroad conditions , but horrendously noisey on the road and look skinny on the wheel.

Yoda voice on - " Choose wisely your tyre Young Skywalker - or stuck you will become " Yoda voice off.:D

Nice car though - tough as old boots:thumbleft::thumbleft:
