E viola - one Cuthbertson and one Carmichael. Billing 2006. Apparently Cuthbertson's have been making this conversion almost as long as Land Rovers have been making the truck.

Used to fix the old TACR's, I only worked on one green one and that was a winterised one that was sent out to Kuwait back in 1998. Yes, a winterised TACR sent to the desert where it was 56 Dec C in the hight of summer! I would not want to own one though, they eat tires like they are going out of fashion. The normal tyre fitted was 205x16 Avon Range masters and because the way that Carmichael set up the rear axles, they scrub the edges of the tread very badly when cornering. They used to last about 6 months before needing new rear tires.
I was very interested to see the two Carmichael TACR2s from the
Falkland Islands posted.
I would like to ask if I could post the picture on a site I run?
Its not for profit, just enthusiasts. Also to ask if you have any
more information or pictures of this type?
Please have a look at: album.sixappealwheel.org and

Hello Rangemaster

I can't see any problem as far as this forum is concerned but you really need to contact Rex directly to ask permission to use his photographs.

BTW I 'edited' your posting down to normal font size as the larger fonts give the impression you are shouting at people. I couldn't email you regarding this as your profile forbids emails being sent.

Best of luck
