Hi and welcome surfglobe

You'll get loads of great advice on this forum, a really helpful bunch. Check out the "2015 Social" thread too, a group of us are meeting up in Derbyshire at the end of June.

Hi, glad you made it,
Take a look in FAQ's for details on air suspension,
Or contact 'Bookend' he's about to buy some too.

Think you were registered to the old site Paul, that's been gone awhile, but good to see you

Hi - I remember you from the old defunct site. Welcome.

We're discussing airbags on the FB page at the moment, join us there too (but don't abandon the main forum!)

Where abouts are you in Cornwall? We're there a fair bit, have a place in Truro.

I run BFG's you find they make the ride a bit nicer, air is even better and not so expensive, have you looked around here to see what members have done yet?

I'll PM you my number why don't you call me at weekend

This will explain the installation its on a difficulty level of about 7/10 but much easier on a ramp I'd say,
about an hours work in a garage probably last time

Have a look at coopers too - they run a nice range of tyres, i have stt muds on my truck, would have preferred st-max for slightly less aggressive tread but it cames wih the st'ts and they seem to have a good rep and can be cheaper than bfg
