Youíre spot on regarding the rack.  The day we picked it up one snapped and a second the next day.  Itís another part I need to re-engineer.

Thank you for the compliment!
Iím about to change over the accommodation electrics to 24v with LiFePo4 batteries and provision to charge from the alternator.
Also planning to swap out those lights on the roof rack with an LED light bar to save weight & power and put plasma rope on the winch in place of steel cable.
Would like to put the bull bar pictured earlier in this thread on it too, but need to watch the weight as it close to the dreaded 7.5t.
Does anyone on here have experience of the more modestly priced LED light bars?  You can spend £150 or £1000 and I suspect itís the law of diminishing returns.....

Dan.

Good question......
AV were advertising an OM366 engine which I bought & arranged for install with AV.  My new Mog then came up for sale, and I decided to put the new engine into this one instead.
I had already delivered my Mog down to AV (200 miles away) so it was much more straightforward just to leave it with them, rather than move it to ACPrice.
Iíve no issues with ACPrice whatsoever, they did a great job on it.
It was just easier for me logistically to leave it with AV.

Received the new registration plates today for my new Mog.
Hope you all approve.....



I phoned the DVLA to enquire about them last year & they told me theyíd never been issued.  Asked for them to be released & they turned up in the DVLA auction last month.
Apologies to anyone on here who also bid on them.

PS.....

AA & RAC donít cover vehicles over 3.5 tonnes.
I got cover with my insurance through Adrian Flux.

However, these guys do a very affordable policy for classic trucks...
