Goodness me, No Jeep.


Top ten car manufacturers producing smoke in Victoria:
Smoky vehicle reports received by the Victorian EPA by manufacturer in 2018/19.

Toyota
792

Nissan
677
Mitsubishi
417
Ford
403
Holden
290
Isuzu
262
BMW
222
Mercedes Benz
157
Volkswagen
126
Hyundai
I have number one and number two on the list, so Ill be skipping the semi's and heading straight into the final, go me.

In regards to Jeeps, and I'm certainly no engineer, but wouldn't the cars producing the smoke be the ones that are actually running

(I wouldn't be surprised to discover all these dibba dobba EPA reports are all signed D'Rover)

Today's run with Mal and The Jeeperific MkII have confirmed my choice was certainly a wise one based on fact not Faceache moans......isn't that why you bought a Mine Truck and not a bling toy ??? Mine may look being but its a Jeep. ( just like buying a Landy) besides I'm off camping....

@Bluey must be setting up the Mighty 'Cruisota with its stylish roof rack, certainly going to be stylish, right out of the " Drovers Book of Mods".

I had a swag once, right up until I discovered the ground was hard, plus I wasn't getting paid to sleep on dirt, bugs and other wildlife.

I havent reached age yet where proper camping has left me behind :boink:

Swag was surrounded by Dingo prints in the red sand, this morning

Thats certainly whats needed for your boat @Bluey, will sit and plane better and easier to steer......cavitation plate should be about level with bottom of hull, at least thats what I found out when setting up mine properly from the local boat place.... ....
