FORD FAIR – SILVERSTONE – 6TH AUGUST 2017
Join us on the Ford Owners Club stand at Ford Fair, Silverstone on Sunday 6th August 2017.
Went off roading in my 13 plate ranger yesterday. Very impressed with the ability, but I have to say it wasn't the most enjoyable day ever, as I spent a lot of time worrying I was going to break my relatively new car when I have only done 10K miles. Every deep river, rut, clunk off a rock and diff dragging moment took the edge of the enjoyment. What I wanted to ask is, in reality how tough are these pick-ups? I got it up on the ramps this afternoon to have a look underneath and all seems to be completely intact, (if a little of the black paint scraped off the diff, spring pans etc). Should I worry about taking it offroad now and again, or is it best left to my £500 sportrak which I don't really care too much about?
