God forbid that RIBs are seen as the 4x4's of the sea. I have never seen one doing a school run, nor have i seen one fitted with Bull Bars.
Quite right that no quals are needed. Time maybe for some quango to make it a rule, then we could all convert or MitsuHatsu Discoveries to run with sponsons! That way we would not damage the school gates when we collect our children from the villij school.

Don't go looking for bad weather, it will find you soon enough!
