I really like my Cherokee, it's as close as I've found to a do everything car. Power, size, weight, parts availability, easy to work on. They are getting a bit long in the tooth now thought and finding a clean one is very difficult, and whatever is available still requires some time spent on it. The...

Re: Trailer Build

you would be amazed at how cheap laser cutting is if you can provide them a CAD file of the part you need. I recently had a bunch of small brackets cut out of 10mm steel for $10ea with them supplying the material - usually works out cheaper than time/cutting discs/hole saws/material and is very accu...

AUSTRALIAN CERTIFIED breaking strength of 15,000kg so will be s...
