Here is a more detailed ad

2001 y Reg on the cable throttle engine

Mileage is 184k and will increase slightly as it is still in use
Mot until Nov I think...

Has quite a few mods...
Arb winch bumper with champion ewx12000 winch all working.
Leyland fab design rocksliders
2inch xpajun body lift with extended braided brake hoses
Old man emu shocks all round and leaf springs on the back
Lift shackles on rear suspension
Torsion bars wound up slightly
16 inch d mod steel modular wheels with 285/75/16 maxxis bighorn tyres (set of 5)
Snorkle
K&N apollo induction kit
Full cybox stainless exhaust (turbo back no cat on pre FBW models)
Egr removed and blanked off
Corbeau bucket seats (could use a bit of tlc but originals included in sale)
Midland cb radio with springer ariel
30mm bulldog billet aluminium wheel spacers
Tow bar with electrics (mainly used for bike rack)
Carryboy canopy (side windows could used new seals)
Load liner in tub (not the tidiest but does the job)
Anti roll bar removed (included in sale)
Cree LED light bar in front bumper

Recent work done...
New cylinder head, steel head gasket, bolts, injectors, rocker cover gasket with alloy half moon seal, sump, water pump, thermostat and o ring seal, radiator + cap, timing, balance, alternator and pas belts + tensioners replaced (all gates kit), oil + filter, fuel filter, K&N filter cleaned and oiled.

At last mot it had new drums, shoes and fitting kit.
It has had a new front panel welded in and front tub mount on n/s has had a small patch welded in, other than that the chassis and body work is in ok Nick.

It has been off roaded but the only damage it ever sustained was a small dent and some scratches to the rear o/s corner of the tub and some other scratches from trees.

Bad bits.....
Discs need done on it (I have a set of larger 2 piston callipers to fit so was going of to get the new discs and pads to go with them at the next service)
Knocking from suspension (rear bushes are tired and I suspect there's something needing tightened in the n/s/f of the truck but I haven't had a chance to look yet.
It is using s small amount of water. I'm suspecting an airlock and will try re bleed and coolant flush before sale.
Gear box has a slight crunch going into third but if you don't Rush the gear change its usually ok will do a gear oil change and see if it helps.

I don't really want to sell it as I'm very attached to it but it hasn't really suited my needs for a while now so it's time to move on.

I'm located between Aberdeen and Edinburgh but willing to meet at a sensible distance for a sale

Looking for £2000ono

Thanks for looking

thats one good truck for the moneys alot of good bits on it, love the bumper too.
also curious why did you remove the anti roll bar ? isit to give it more articulation or something ? as i imagine without it it will let the arms drop better ?
good luck with the sale.

Yeah, removed it for a bit of extra flex off road. Thought it might make it too boaty on road as I'm on motorways a fair bit but it's not too bad.

Agreed, to be fair though it dosnt seem to matter where you advertise, you will (and always have done even before t'internet) attract A holes, I find the best approach is to treat them as a challenge, to this date I think I have wasted more of there time then they have of mine. Give it a try, its fun.

Well these heart conditions can creep up on you, and we all know that the first thing you should think about with a heart condition is buying a Mitzi

Well the potential buyer tonight was a no show.... Insurance is now lapsed on the truck so moved it out to the unit and will put it up on eBay. Think I've got to the bottom of the water problem.... Replaced a poorly fitting o ring seal in the thermostat housing and a split hose in the turbo water feed and it has been sorted all day. Expansion tank level staying constant, no over heating and other than pre-exisiting dirt in the expansion tank no oil in water.
