First time posting, had my eagle jeep at Drumclog in Scotland, lots of muddy fun, but the jeep needs more lift, agressive tyres, a winch and a high lift jack, so far ive got the winch sorted,and the high lift ordered, I will add three inches to the shackle plates and am planning to take a tyre cutter to the grabber ATs for more grip. Long term a set of 35" MTs and custom parabolic springs.
Yeah it is based on a Daihatsu F50 jeep, thats why its still on its original plate, the F50 was a cracking wee jeep from the 80s, but spares are turning out to be tricky to source. I will keep modifying this one for as long as I can keep it going, but long term probably a Fourtrack donor would be a simple swap.
I think that this jeep has a very authentic "stance" and looks like a serious off road machine. Seeing it next to the wrangler it still looks great. I would encourage any RV owner starting a resto proj to consider a fourtrack as a complete donor swap, you would get to keep the jeeps Reg. no. as well. Cheers.
I have now got a seriously big winch for the RV and some cutting product to bring back the colour. No stopping me now.
