My TD5 Disco

Let’s hear about all those weekend toys for the boys (and girls) boats, skis, camper trailers, motor homes, 4wheel drives OK even airplanes (again add the make and model to the title we will organise as it gets unmanageable).

Looks like you've put some time and money in to it. Nice work.

Must be a fair bit of weight in the back when you drove up those rocks in the last vid in your post. Bouncing around a bit there! or your shocks are blown!

It's the shocks, the valving is all wrong and the springs are set up for weight in the back, I'm having the rear shocks rebuilt and revalved to stop the bouncing, it can be a pain at times, great when touring with the camper on and weight in the back.

My only mud that I've done, I was the only vehicle to make it through this mud hole hence all the screaming.
