    That sure is a beast. What part of England are you from? How much snow do you get?

    Good thing you have the snorkels in case the snow gets like 7 feet deep then you can just keep right on going.

    Why two snorkels? I can see the one goes to the engine under the hood but what does the other one go to?

    The other goes to the driver, I think he has a pair of swimming goggles hanging off his rear view mirror also.

    Thanks for the positive comments guys , the paintscheme sort of fits with a landrover, It was set up mainly for overland travel, took it to Australia, and stayed over there for about 15 years , had a service station/ garage . Jdiepstra It also has truck horn and 3 tone siren, hideaway strobes . The second Donaldson ussmileyflagsnorkel is for the Red Dot ussmileyflagaircon unit on the roof ,it allows you to select fresh air to pressurize the inside of the vehicle to keep the bulldust out when travelling in the outback . It has twin batts and a 200amp alternator.
    it runs fulltime 4wd, both axles, and the trans have locking diffs. Its a 3.9ltr fuel inj V8 all electronics are sealed against water. Blowerman I live about 15miles from Oxford , the snow is very variable , some years 3" some 12" , but you dont get a lot of warning sometimes.06HDboss it pulls like a locamotive as well , the biggest tow was 10miles pulling a Mack semi low loader with a shovel on in OZ grossing 54tonnes coz its constant 4wd you can start in low transfer and shift into high on the move . Buckartsplow, its a 110 they imported a few into USA but then had to stop as they are unable to meet air bag requirement , they rely on the fact that the other vehicle is your crumple Zone:D The chassis is seperate 10x4 box section steel . A coastguard swb went over a 150ft cliff , the two guys survived , and the landrover was rebuilt . driveway doctor your photoshop looks good , but I hope you wont be offended if I dont act on your suggestion :jester:

    Thats alot of cool info! Do you really mean just 3-12 inches, or do you mean 3-12 feet?

    I mean 3-12 inches per incident , its very variable both per fall and per winter , further north is more predictable. So far its been the coldest start to winter for 37 years , with locally two snowfalls 1" and 2" both since melted . On higher ground 150 mile north still laying .
