Rusty Rhino has a lift

Been doing a bit of work on the SJ with a bit of help from my brother, lewis. Bought some lift shackles and shock relocation gadgets to raise the car a bit which will give us more ground clearance for the rough stuff. Bought them from ebay from a mamber and because we are doing this for the Mongol Rally, he gave us some discount, so big thanks for that. The kit really is top quality and looks very strong. To check out his items, go to http://search.ebay.co.uk/_W0QQsassZnofearzuksQQhtZ-1

Pics of the Rusty Rhino now lifted. The rear tow bar has also been removed as it is a waste of space and weight for us and will also give us some more ground clearance.

And a pic of me soaking wet from fitting them in the rain. They were not terribly difficult to fit - It helped that the dimensions of the kit were spot on. Looking forward to testing it off-road again as the decent tyres were already a vast improvement!
