    Check out this 25MB movie of almost stock vehicles out wheelin'. The Toyota LWBs sure make it look much easier than the Suzuki's can. :)

    Junk will hate this.
    The **white** TLC had the smoothest ride up that section of trail :D.

    Great little video. Must have come from UK, hence the right-hand drive. Do you know where it was made?

    Nope, but I reckon it's Aussie. They look more cheerful and enthusiastic than if they were Brits. :D

    Interesting that the suspension flex and complience of the 80's made it look easy, and the poor Suzuki's really had to work. I think this shows the advantage of coils vs. leafs, not long vs. short. Of course, no one was locked(see all the wheel spin?) which would have made a huge difference. Thanks for sharing Drexx.

    They couldnt be too bumpy, or how would they get their trailers into the trailer park where you live :flipoff2: :flipoff2: :flipoff2:

    Or are you in the only trailer with swampers and a 10" lift :D :p ;)
