welcome to yorkshire suzuki ll

if its for everyday use a vit is alot more suitable you don't want to be doing 150 miles a day in a sj lol!

lets see some pics of the rav 4 , is it modded at all or just standard ?

Hello & welcome to YS.

This could be a very long post with a question like that. "Which is best a Vit or SJ"?

As Vitara Mad says you wouldn't want to 150 miles in an SJ, BUT the few you do in an SJ are a right laugh.

Get a cheap car for the work run and a SJ Sammi for playing is my vote, but I'm biased. Very Happy

hi and welcome, iv got a sand jover (dont ask, lol) but iv had a few vits iv not owned a sj yet!!!, 150 miles a day in a vit depends, is it a and b roads mainly or motorway, duel carrage ways she drives on ???, if its just a and b roads a zook will be ok but 50mph on a faster roads not good in a modded vit, iv sold a few rav4s over the years and there quite comfy on the road, r lass loves them, iv had just about every type of 4x4 and my favourites are vits for both on/off roading fun and swb terranos, but like i say never owned a sj YET!!!, lol

thats why we bought the rav4 so she wont get stuck in winter,used to have an old mr2(that didnt move last year)just love toyotas,so got the rav knowing nothing about 4x4's.
anyway,since found out its a cat c writeoff so we are going to bash the hell out of it then scrap it.

cat c means nothing if the cars cheap enough m8, i still buy and sell them easy enough, it might just need a new wing but if its metalic the insurance company will write it off because of labour costs, its stupid

thanks for the advice guys,is it simple to make a snorkel,does it matter how long the pipe is??cus the battery is in the way,then the shock,then the fusebox,so id have to run a pipe right down to the front then all the way back along the inner wing,then out of the wing.would that be OK???
thanks in advance for any advice.

you can fit it to either side,and if you take a bit of drain pipe to a scrap yard you can use airbox pipe of many different cars as flexi joints just match the size to your bit of drain pipe,i found early fiesta diesel s has the right guage but there are many

extept the alternator bit .and as for the breathers id check them if you can find them see how high they are .but in most cases the snorkles enough for occasional wading if its a petrol engine check the ecu is out the way
