    Ground Clearance Needs

    I think the importance of ground clearance depends on your vehicle. Our VW Syncro T25 only has around 24cm clear underneath, but it also has independently sprung half axles, and so that means that there's no big diff casings in the middle to drag on the ground, like you might get with a...

    syncro Doka

    The T25 Syncro's generally are pretty capable because the 4WD was designed by Steyr, who also did the Pinzgauer/G-Wagon/Haflinger, and who did the development and production on the Syncro for VW in exchange for diesel engines for their Pinzgauer vehicles. The Dokas have more space for engine...

It's still got its original 1.6TD which gives us a comfortable 70mph on the motorway, although there's...

    Low-Profile roof boxes?

    Thule do a soft roof box - the Ranger 90 that can be loaded from the side or rear. It does require roof bars to attach to but only has a rigid base so it's height is mainly determined by what you put in it.

    Clipless Pedals

    Love my Time Atac Alium pedals - plenty of float so it's not so hard on your knees plus they're pretty crud resistant. They've also made a combination clipless / flat pedal that you can put on a bike that you might want to ride either way.
