  4. Hi, new to the site as of today. And am just starting out my new business. I currently have a Landrover Freelander, but am looking to change that soon to a pick up, as I'll be doing Tree Surgery as well as Gardening services. Specifically, I'll be looking at a 2010 Ford Ranger, and there is an auctioneers near me that deals in ex utility vehicles. The ones I am looking at are the ex electric company ones. Something like this: https://www.gumtree.com/p/vans/2010-10-ford-ranger-supercab-xl-2.5tdci-4x4-pick-up-c-w-fibreglass-top/1329919483 I basically want just the outer shell, and want to be able to remove all the shelves/storage from the inside to make space for kit/equipment, and will probably customize some storage if needs be. Does anyone know if it's possible to remove everything from inside the pickup section?
  5. HI, Can anyone advise on someone in the Peak/Derbyshire area that can fit a new arb body to my pickup? I'm looking for something in alloy board and tipping.

  9. Hi Everyone Getting a Maxilift 350 crane going on the truck next week, I am looking for any advice on the position to put it. I would like to put it between the tipper deck and the cab but then i wont get much reach with it. I am thinking of putting it at the back of the tipper bed. I understand I would need to have some sort of protection around it for when i want to tip chip/Logs. Has anyone done this before? I wonder if it would be to much hassle tipping. Any advice would be great!! Thanks
  10. Before I start, I apologise as this has probably been said 1000 times before but I couldn't find anything specific to my circumstances. I'm looking in to my first truck (only 20) so need something I can use for both work and personal use hence a pick up truck. My question is... which do people prefer, a double cab and the instant ability to be able to store kit away in the back seats securely and live with the loss of space or..... buy a single cab pickup with more space in the back and then have to weld up some sort of a box in the back so that you can still get to the tools if the truck is full with chip etc? a bit like this Also..... I'm based near Plymouth and currently on the market there is a 11 yr old double cab hilux with 97,000 miles at Bristol for £4,995 or a 55 plate double cab ford ranger on 130,000 miles for £3,500 in Exeter.... is that a good deal and or which one shall I go for?! cheers

  12. Evening all...... Went down to pick some bits up from my (shared) yard in Shipley, W Sussex at 8:30 on Sun night. Found my faithful old Transit gone, office and workshop broken into and Daihatsu Fourtrak 4x4 with knackered locks and steering column, hand tools and other bits gone off with the Transit. Other vehicles and buildings broken into. The other firm I share with had been in at 5pm and nothing was out of place so we can only assume that we had visitors who were in and out across the fields very quickly. The frost helped them get the truck out through the woods and fields to the road about 1/2 mile away without disturbing the front gates. Transit's number is K926 MOU..... Distinctive two tone colour scheme and very distinctive Atlas crane behind cab. Ex Bristol Water with approx 75k miles on the clock. All credit to Sussex Police, uniformed officers were straight out and on the case.... Please send a PM if you spot anything, bearing in mind the truck could now be off to be used in robbing other people.
  13. I'm looking to buy a Hilux or similar for weekend work. Just wondering if anyone had anything for sale, or any advice for me. I'm currently still a student so looking for a truck as an everyday vehicle as well as for jobs. Im looking to spend 3 to 4k. Cheers!
