    Hi, I don't blame you guys for complaining. The thing is , we Brits don't complain enough. I wrote ,politely, to my MP ( and I think he's a good guy) re the following. Please tell me why we still keep the grossly unfair VED system which actually has little to do with emissions. For Example band B (ved £30/110 emission claimed) compared to band M (£570/270) In other words, charge 19 fold, emissions 2.4 fold. You can see that many low mileage drivers like me (5k pa} are even more unfairly treated. It gets even worse when you consider multiple car owners. Sadly , I was told not all systems are fair! I believe that if they charged a fair rate to everyone then they would collect more revenue any way. ''Theirs lies ,damn lies and statistics'' -- Disraeli Lastly, how about this. I have my MOTs done properly. My YJ 4.0l went in for MOT recently. I've known the people for years. The mechanic did the emissions and said to me ( If I went to an MOT ands the garage refused to allow me to stay with the car I would go elsewhere I like to oversee what they are doing) ''I'm going to do it again'' He did! He was amazed at the result. The machine had been recalibrated that week. He said that he had tested a 1.6 Hyundai that morning for its first mot. The emissions were worse!

    Sorry to hijack the thread a bit. Nothing really wrong with the YJ Harry, just not getting enough use, I don’t really want to see it go. Are you interested? Would be nice to hand it on to some one who would take good care of it. Actually, Today on the way to Southwold I saw two Jeeps at the roadside with for sale notices: a black Commander and a very nice looking YJ in what I can only describe as “very nearly Hydro Blue” , made me think of you.

    Matt from Kent

    Hi all I am Matt the proud owner of a new Rubicon JL.I plan to start using it off road once it has a few miles under its belt. Had it just over 3 weeks now and having got used to the tyre noise am loving it. The only issue so far is a warning for "service shifter", just a bit unfortunate it has decided to do this on Easter weekend. Hope fully the dealer will be able to resolve this quickly. All that remains is to say hopefully I will start meeting other members soon.

    What's wrong with the YJ Tim? You know I'm partial to square lights, got a YJ parked outside my shop now, and its really peaking my interest

    Jl wheel arches

    How about getting them wrapped in matching colour or clear , just a thought as it may protect

    Wrangler number 3......

    Don’t get me started on it, total my VED for the year and it’s over £1800 , at most 2 are in use at any one time. Actually even though it’s taxed my Alfa hasn’t moved apart from going for its MOT in a year, and that I could have done even i I had it on sorn. Too easy now you can do it direct debit , I should sorn and tax when/if used but never get round to it. Should be a pay per mile option based per driver, more than happy to have a black box to prove use .... And Square headlights are fine on an XJ but Wranglers .... no lol

    There really ought to be a way to have them all on one tax payment, you can only drive one at a time right, so you pay for the one with the highest rate and transfer it to the others when you use them.....makes perfect sense. The tax is partly why I mention the YJ actually, I now have both the CJ and the YJ SORNed because I just don’t drive them enough, the CJ will go back on for the summer but the YJ has been off the road ( not in a good way) for over 2 years, very sad ....oh, and square headlights on XJs and YJs .......totally cool

    Never been a square light fan .. plus 3 is enough! Just the road tax is crippling! If there was only a way to get all 6 cars on one tax payment maybe if I just use the same number plate for the Wranglers

    Very nice Chris, looks in good condition. Can I interest you in a 2.5 YJ to add to your Wrangler collection.

    Well this wasn’t on the cards , but being down to just a few Jeeps on the drive I bought a second TJ ! Couldn’t resist it, 2.5l TJ pretty much stock apart from bumpers , 67000 miles FSH, pretty good order apart from interior need a proper valet and to top it off a price that I don’t think will ever be repeated for a TJ ! 3 Wranglers now, thankfully Kerry’s good with it as she wants a blue soft top for sunny days. But she was thinking a 3 Series Cabriolet

    Simonstone at Bristol

    I dealt with a Mike Naylor when I bought a Renegade in 2016. I take my Wrangler and Hyundai there to be serviced and Mike always heads out if he sees me for a chat. I'd recommend Simonstone also.

    Found some snow

    After driving South for 2,000 km, finally found a short length of snow covered track to check out the Nexen tyres we fitted 6 months ago. It took several goes to get through a depth of about 25cm, but it was near to melting point and the compression turned the wet snow to ice almost instantly. Probably would have been OK on fresh snow; the original Continentals worked well in that.

    Easter Jeep Tag Along - Nomad Antics

    Dammit! Sounds great and weather should be good too, would definitely have been up for that but already have an Easter weekend full of family commitments. Just a bit too short notice......and you’re only just down the road from me too. Maybe the next one...? Look forward to seeing some pics, have fun PS let me know if you recommend the campsites and routes for future reference.
