Well finally got home from offshore and there is about a foot of snow. So av been getting phone calls none stop for tows! Pulled 3 beemers up hills and one of my best mates works for a coach company so had to go pull his bus out of a ditch! She just goes anywhere! And the BFGoodrich A/T r just the best! I love my wee LC. Think al trade in my range rover sport for a new landcruiser Smile anyway here r some photos Smile

The mp4 clip works fine.

Wouldve been good if they could show the tow out as well!

I have bgf m/t's fitted, not sure how they will cope with snow yet.

Keep on enjoying yourself!

It will look better with the spotters on trooperman Smile I couldn't believe how good the BFGoodrich A/T were! They just grip grip grip! But that's the fun over for me. Back offshore tomorrow Sad

It's a stunning place. I love where I live Smile I never made it all the way round. Only to where the photos where taken. The snow drifts further up we're 5ft deep!! Couldn't blast through them! And I managed all that in high box. No low box or diff lock needed!! Smile

5ft would have been a bit much!

yes a great area, i lived at Ardersier (my parents still do) from 1981-1995, and now live near Insch in Aberdeenshire, so still in this part of the world.

has your chopper ride been cancelled with storm approaching, what rig?

Great pictures, thanks for sharing.

I had BFG AT on my 120 when used to it.

I firmly believe the BFG AT, are the best suited tyre for the LC.
In Norway, it was also very sure footed in the deep Norwegian snow.
