Regardless of what do-gooders say or what law changes come about they will never stamp out our big tyred,lifted rigs. There are plenty of us willing to take the risk of running our perfectly safe 4,6,8" lifted rigs on the road & off as has been the case since I can remember.whizzo wrote:
As for those who are rushing out to get their soon to be noncompliant vehicles, engineered ahead of the changes......those vehicles are insignificant because the vast majority of them will be scrap metal within 5 years. Your talking nonsense here.Those with engineers reports will be worth way more than those without.
Those that remain after the changes will continue to be "targets for harassment" and quite rightly so. And again.
Look at the high lifted and big tyres landcruser pictured above..that is what all this is about, the general public and the vast majority want to be "protected" from vehicles like that..and it is very hard to justify such things on a reasonable basis in a forum that matters.....parliment. You refering to Black bulls?
In truth most of the general public would not recognise a vehicle with a 3 inch total lift as being modified, and a tastefully done and properly engineered 4 or 6 inch lifted vehicle most of the public would not find threatening. Once again your talking nonsense. BlackBulls rig is what 6" total & it looks to be tastefully done as you put it. I think you are being a hypocrit. You all for 2" lift etc then 4-6" lift is ok if it's tastefully done. whats tastefully?
Why should we just lay down without a fight & accept what the government & do-gooders want?
