    Bought a nissan navara a few months back to tow my BDC 180sx
    So today i decided to see what it can do off road, Myself and Matt Hitchcock headed off to Essex pay n play
    when pulling in the gate i began to think what the hell am i doing.I pulled up next to the sign in box and couldnt fill in the paper work fast enough to get out in the mud.
    Having looked at a map we didnt have a clue where to go on the tracks and i was shiting myself !
    I drove round the same part of the track too scared to go down any hill i see lol
    Matt soon began to take the piss out of me and said it was time for me to follow him in his 4x4 Which i did and got brave and thought i was king kong lol

    And then this happened lol

    It was soo close to rolling it was just rocking there and i froze like a rabbit in headlights

    Yeah ive done abit of this with a mates hilux,

    i wouldnt be doing it in a new car like urs lol, weve got stuck so many times, nearly rolled it, got stuck where all 4 wheels were barely touching the ground but the middle of the undercarriage was pivoting, has to be rescued by a corsa ffs.

    stuck in a field covered in snow, sank about 3 foot, spent 2 hours getting out, only to get stuck another 2meteres away.
    left the car in the field, walked 5miles home with my flimsy plimpsoles on, 1 hour sleep for work, police phoned my mate as the farmer noticed the truck the next morning LOL

    wouldnt change it for the world tho, its pretty fun.

    yeah, highly recommend the hilux for that. never broke down, never had an issue, just smashed it up to much.

    cheap night out dude as around east london/essex there are loads of places just to do it if youve got some balls. we used to go through epping forest at some parts.

    I had a Lada Niva a while back! 1.7i!!

    2 inch chassis lift and 36" off road tyres!! Awesome fun until the ring gear came off the flywheel and shattered into bits jamming the transfer box!

    Locked all 4 wheels up at 45 mph! Lol scary shit!

    My mates and I have just started this: 2 lads got Toyota surfs, 1 got a discovery, 2 bought vitaras and I picked up an Sj. Out of all of them I would say the vits are the most reliable and just as capable once modded. Well good fun - spotted Bon doing pay and play at Buildwas in Ironbridge the other week

    I do a lot of this in my friends defender 90 with a 2" chassis lift, snorkel, rocksliders and some big old knobblies, its great fun but I still can't shake the idea that playing with mud in wellies with other men is a bit brokeback and reserved for a certain type.. lol

    Yeah it was the first legal weekend there, there was a great turnout and as far we saw no idiots or scumbags. Were up again this weekend for another play so if your about pop over and say hi i'll be the one in the passenger seat of the white Sportrak with white knuckles whilst my missus trys her best to put us through the windscreen.

    Were leaving in convoy on Sunday morning if your welcome to tag along if you going out that way.

    You know alloys are quite vunerable to cracking? A friend of mine was stranded down a greenlane for 4 hours when half his lip fell off
