Yep there is some cracking pictures that pop up and I think there are hidden links in the picture that you can click to find out more about the scene
It's usually a planetary symbol in the upper right of the screen.

Within 11 miles of Jay.... down on this mystical Bergerac island of Jersey.
The actual law states "No front device –

(a)     of the kind commonly known as “bull bars”; or

(b)     of any similar nature, by whatever name the device is called,

shall be carried by a motor vehicle, unless the device is non-metallic or flexible."

On a side note, our local fire service used a tirfor today to pull a car off an edge drop. I'm slightly curious as they have a 10k lb+ winch on the front of the rescue vehicle..


Maybe its deamed safer to use when a person is at risk as there isnt a brake to protentually fail. Personally i dont see a reason not to use a winch unless they did use it when they first arrived on scene then swapped over to the safer tirfor as them tirfors can be a pain to set up as we had one at work

If anyone is intrested this is the set up they used - https://www.facebook.com/JerseyFire/photos/pcb.1715164318551597/1715160425218653/?type=3&theater

I don't know how many of you have Windows 10 and stop to look at the login screen, but good lord.
This popped up today, and the first thought was I'd love to go out there and explore, second was which kidney to sell!

So, reading into this, first it would be a good idea to beef the bouncy bits before I do anything under the bumper? Which adds the note of upgrading the rubber and rims to not look daft. I did think the discreet's were a little low, and from your comments,a lot lower when you're up to the axles in it. Tirfor? I'd rather have a bobbin tank around!
SMH - I'd love to put a sturdy steel reinforced bumper on the vehicle, unfortunately, the moment I left the driveway, i'd have an issue with the local enforcement about it.

Why would you have an issue with local Enforcement ?
Where is your location?

Have you considered fitting a winch in the rear?

Gets you out of trouble with DVS, can be mounted higher up then at the front and sometimes its a better option to winch out of the situation then through it

We made a custom bumper to fit ours but you could always fit a 2" receiver and have the winch on a removable cradle

White L200 (German show) is the same as L200-DC has but without suspension lift (and a deceptive camera angle)


Looks like we are back to the good old Tirfor then  YKM

We've just returned from the Pyrenees, and I was really, really glad I had my Goodwinch 9.5 TDS.

Miles from any assistance.

It paid for itself at 2500m up where the ground had been baked dry except for one patch of 100m length where any remaining water had sumped and a crust had dried over it.
We hadn't realised until a third of the way and we broke through the crust.
A yellow mud formed of clay and sand (a weird combination).

Just couldn't get a purchase with my ATs. It took two cable deployments each to work our way out of that one!
My chum said afterwards at the well deserves brew-stop, that having just totally rebuilt his 110, he nearly didn't put the winch back on regarding it as rarely used jewellery!!
