Now seriously, i didn't understand your doubt.
Must just be the photo angle. My truck looked like it had a great big dent once and that was just a reflection, still had to walk up to it to check though . On the second photo from the bottom of your trucks on that slope, your friends rear wheel looks like it has taken a knock when you zoom in on it.

Today the Terrano when through the car wash (2 times)...

The AC was recharged today and now it makes cold air (very cold!!).

I left the Terrano in the tyre shop to balance the tyres, align the steering and fix the tyre.


Now it's time to take car of the audio... (both music and CB Radio)

Guys, i need your input.

In the last 4x4 i had i installed a Alan 78 radio with a 600mm antenna.
Nice setup and quality...


Now i'm searching a CB radio and i'm thinking in a portable version, like the Alan 42 Multi (Link to website)

Pros: No setup, easy to use and it can travel with me even outside the car.
Cons: Sound quality? Distance?

Do anybody has experience with this kind of portable CB?

Thanks for the input.
If i must use a external antenna (as expected) i will go for a fixed radio.

Now let's talk about rims.

I have the stock 15" steel rims, i'm thinking of buying a set of 15" 8J with 30mm negative offset (keeping the 235/75 tyres).

What's your 5 cents on this change?

Well, still alive.

From the last update:
- A set 30mm wheel spacers
- New radio
- New CB Radio
- And a BIG antena

As usual, a couple of pictures!


Some horses...


The first one stuck:


Some scenic views:



The second one stuck (and the most heavy!)



The little Vitara did try, but no show!


The hole:


And the team!



We tryd to pull the Terrano to the front (with 2 other Terranos II, but nothing). I ended up pulling it from behind with a couple of hard pulls. And i kept the momentum for around 50 mts in a little Tug Of War!!!
