waiting to move into flow of 4 lanes of traffic traffic and misjudged it - mounted kerb and bounced into metal railings !!!!! oh SH1T! marked the wing BUT IT BENT THE STEERING ARM & Smith Knight Fay Took it off the road !!!! i thought id spent 36K on one of the best offroaders !!
and mounting the kerb renders it useless!!

Hey Ho ill just carry on in my 1000cc yaris courtesy car till next week when its repaired one not very happy Bunny

about 5mph
just setting off from the junction ! Chris the Treg engineer at SNF says it is the most vulnerable point when you are in a partial lock situation but if its set up for off road surely mounting a kerb is easier than going over some of the terrain its supposed to be set up for - sorry ill get off my high horse and get back in my Yaris!!!!!!!
