A tight fit.
The finishing touches have now been made to the Land Rover 101, so that it can transport one Jeep in the back and the second on a trailer behind. The recently fitted AlliSport intercooler has improved performance of the 300 Tdi engine by about 15% and with the Willy’s in the back we made serene progress down the M1 this week.
Loading and unloading time is in the region of 2 hours from start to finish, but once the Jeep is in, the wheels come off and the 101 canvas roof just fits over the load. It’s tight!
This is the combination that will transport both Jeeps to Southampton next March to begin their journey to Egypt with shipping company Grimaldi.
