      Ok chaps!
      I would love to meet you new guys and see your fine Explorers.....How about we arrange a UK Ex meet, some place?
      Whos up for that...I am hoping we can pull it off in the next few months so we have real friends who gather at next years FF.

      I for one am up for anyplace in the uk.

      Howard mate can you make this a sticky so we can have people who dont visit like we do daily, take note please? That way we can arrange something!
      Thanks all and I hope we can make this work..

      Hmmm maybe we could arrange to meet in a nice pub with a big carpark, near a green lane place- so those that want to get muddy can and the rest of us can be on standby supping ale as we wait to the....... Help I have rolled my ex phone calls! Lol!!!
      I am in my hire car a vauxhall insignia- very tasty class car- drives well with traction control off! Ehhhh don't tell Enterprise renta car that I have been hammering this ok?
      I get my ex back from the body shop maybe Friday after they fix the damage that old fool did when she hit me. Till then it's wreck the brand new vauxhall week!

      Hire cars are great, they always seem to go faster than the equivalent model if you're holding the V5

      Man I am so impressed that for a two litre oil burner it goes so damn well- straight up! She rips Tarmac! But not enough for me to consider a change so don't worry guys- lol!
      Oooo. Managed to lock up the rear and drift a a bend today..... Try that in an Ex and feel the force!.... I took out the extra insurance for £7.50 a day that means if I turn it into a tree wrap, all I do is give the keys back and that's it! That's mainly why this car is getting a pounding!

      It strikes me that you have a naughty streak. Either that or you like to watch an 18 year old upstart squirm

      I'll be up for a meet sometime early in the New Year. Jan or early Feb as I'll be off to Hong Kong for 3-4 months after that, and then hopefully India for the mid to latter part of the year. Just waiting on contracts being signed.

      very seriously thinking about it... probably depends on what people are willing to pay for a unique explorer!

      Hi There,

      Thanks, I'll look them up.
      I managed to get 2" shackles from Kev.P and Wheels 'N' Parts in Arizona sent me some 3" maximum lift torsion keys.
      Got them on at the moment; which is great, but i still want more ride height for my ground clearance and therefore larger diameter wheels.

      Thanks again.
