Thanks for the add. I'm from Nottingham and have a 2008 Animal Walkinshaw edition. Which my wife uses more than me. Looking forward to doing a few mods making it into a look of a monster truck. With all terrain 20inch tyres need to know what the biggest I can fit on standard Walkinshaw suspension hoping to fit 325/60/20 if it's possible. and bull bar. Been looking into fitting the reverse camera mirror. I got the mirror and camera jius can't find information on what else I need for this to work. Hopefully some one will know on here.

Sorry, missed this. Recently got a 2004 K74 4WD Double cab 4 Life for towing (the special daughter's special horse and my kit car) 80000 miles in Green over Silver. Really liking the 'back to basics' kind of having to keep correcting the steering as it wanders all over the road kind of driving. (I will get round to adjusting the steering box eventually) On the plus side the Aircon works great! Have got a replacement radio but not fitted it yet due to other issues overtaking us. Used it for a couple of weeks and it did the towing job great. But we were aware of the dreaded water disappearing act which these things apparently do on a regular basis. I've replaced the head (new from Milners) plus head bolts, timing belts, auxiliary belts, water pump, thermostat, cleaned out all the water hoses, replaced all the vacuum hoses, removed the EGR, even freed up the turbo adjusting screws. Got it running yesterday but unfortunately the new head gasket leaks water just below number 2 fuel injector, so off it will have to come off again. Tonight's little job!Will obviously have to take a very close look at that area of the block, but then what gasket to use this time? And a little dab of copper sealant in that area maybe?

Looking forward to this lasting a few more years yet, so any ideas most welcome.

Located in Silverstone, by the way.
