The ground clearance on that Shogun looks terrible!!!

My Defender 110 is standard height and I can just fit my knee under the sill.............

Ground clearence does look a bit low but it does have a relatively short wheelbase which will help. youre braver than me off roading that, it would have to spend a week in the body shop by the time i finished with it, and its far too nice for that. I bet its got more elbow room and is quieter than a 110 just the job for shopping trips and dropping the kids off to school!

Except yours has got fewer holes in it

Not with those tyres you'd have lost your false teeth by the time you'd reached the Asda car park

This would be considered a numbered provincial highway in Manitoba.

What?

Hey PT
You have to remember that going "off road" in the UK is visiting the local supermarket carpark.

That was just the track up to the lanes you had to turn of there to get into the mucky stuff but we were too busy to take pics then

I should add that there is some lovely scenery in those pictures and some very nice machines as well. If I were to do a tour of the UK, this is the type of country that I'd like to see and the mode of transport I'd like to use.

Defenders, Series 1-3s & Lightweights are all very cool, very excellent vechicles. It's a shame that they (as well as diesel Toyota Landcruisers) aren't more prevalent in North America.
