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.

Speaking of your roof rack, be careful how much weight you put on it, the cab mounts can collapse if you put too much weight on, the same applies to fitting roll cages

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.

It's a classic problem, especially when people start putting spare wheels up there  :-\

Got my auxiliary fuel tank back from the powder coaters last week & refitted it this weekend.  Very pleased with how it looks:

Hello Dan
Iím going to sell my 1124 and Iím concentrating on my 1550l at the moment doing the winch rebuild today to be honest itís got me down, over engineered ! But bloody awesome 7ton pull 30m a minute variable pull variable speed.by its complicated plus Iím thinking of mounting it on the rear for weight ditrubution. Iím going Unimog for the discomfort 😂😂😂
