Just weighed my diesel trialmaster with full fuel and adblue, fridge in back, king drawers full of camping stuff, custom side steps and no driver or passengers and I’m sitting at 2980kg.
That's not too bad, mine came in at 200kgs lighter off the boat, the sticker on the windscreen told the tale. Not sure what it is now 😅

I'm driving one at the moment, Justin Hocevar said to do whatever you want with it as in klms and usage.
You are lucky - I had one for 6 months while they built me a new vehicle and had to sign an agreement and keep to gazetted roads! There was also a $2500 excess on damage.

Only one comment on the Grenadier, 70 series third party suspension upgrade running cooler than the stock INEOS suspension.

As a 79 owner, what is it that swayed you apart from the aforementioned video?
The grenadier is more functional for my needs these days and a better everyday drive than the 79. It sits on the road a lot better, turning circle is better, it’s safer, better fuel economy. I’ve only driven the grenadier about 1000km so far but am happy with my decision. Its not as much fun to drive as the 79 though.

Can you expand on your comment- not as much fun?
I drive one occasionally, and apart from the V8 sound it's ok 😆

The 79 requires a lot more input to drive and keep on the road and under control, its manual, has a descent sized aftermarket turbo and will really get up and go. The whole thing just requires more active engagement with the vehicle which is just fun! Driving country roads keeps you on your toes

Yes, I understand what you mean.

INEOS v 4 cylinder 70 series - what does he think?
View: https://youtu.be/I-mDtBVdd0w
I am so glad that the Gren has the six-cylinder BMW engine with the 8 speed auto and not a four with a 6 speed hanging off it, the wear and tear might be a bigger factor with the latter and fuel...but our Rohny is having an each way bet...is it a photo finish...I think the Gren is a nose in front...bias, not at all ;)
