      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. 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?
