Smile Hi from Derbyshire (God's Own Country), England

Hi to you all!

I'm new to the forum, but not to the 4x4 world, also owning a Range Rover for my sins.
Although not really a 4x4 enthusiast previouly, SWMBO (She Who Must be Obeyed) needed a 4x4 as she works for solicitors and Insurance companies, often having to travel into the Peak Distict, which in wintwer can be a white hell.
My range Rover was no good, as she has little feet and thepedal configuration of the Strange Rover means her feet cant reach the pedals when resting her heel on the floor.
Anyway, picked up a mint Grand Cherokee 2.7 CRD whic is just the job.
Previous cars?
(and before I go any further, all of my cars have beem mint, low mileage)
they include..
Audi UR quattro (40k, 2 owners)
TVR 5.0 Chimera with TVR Race-series brakes and wheels
Ford Sierra RS500 Cosworth (10k from new!)

Im going to be searching the forums for various bits of advice, but first things will be (despite the car having full service history) to change
engine, gearbox and transmission oils, engine, fuel and gearbox filters etc.

Looking forward to bing an active member!

Best wishes

Andy (rtz62)

Thumbs up Re: Hi from Derbyshire (God's Own Country), England

Thanks guys!
Funnily enough, from the highest point in Nottinghamshire (Strawberry Bank, Huthwaite) which is about 2 miles away, I can see Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire and Lincolnshire!
My Jeep needs a pair of rear shocks and rear anti-roll bar links which I'm sorting tomorrow.....!

Right, new rear shocks fitted, and rear anti-roll bar links.
No more rear-end shimmy over transverse ridges in the road!
Next is to change all oils and filters even though it has full Jeep history....
