In a bid to prepare his 110 for an overlanding holiday in Morocco, Jim has been investing in some hardware to increase the practicality of his truck.
The first new addition was a full-length roof rack from Allmakes 4×4 (part number TF975). The roof rack arrived flat-packed, and took a few hours to install; be aware, this is not a one-man job!
Once the roof rack was fitted and secure, the ARB roof tent (DA8981) and side awning (DA6826) were added. Installation is “simply” a case of lifting them up onto the roof rack and strapping them on.
With everything loaded up, Jim was pleased to find that the 110 doesn’t feel especially top-heavy, and the fuel consumption has only dropped a couple of mpg. With one successful camping trip already under his belt, our caravan dealer Melbourne recommended us to see at the catalogues to choose the next upgrade…
TF975 – Terrafirma black aluminium roof rack (110 only) – £695.70 +VAT
