This is a canter a few years after work in the Kimberly

Jenny and I both enjoy the great outdoors. We try to get away 4 to 5 month a year.

The Camel neck section of the chassis was always a source of head aches and when you look at that vehicle which already had the suspension upgrade from All Terrain warriors makes you wonder why people keep on believing that Fusos or Ivecos are a real 4x4,Three years ago on a trip to Spain Italy and France and visiting a few lime and Granite quarry's and talking to Iveco Owners and listening to their comments and me pointing out that going up a quarry road for 4 km doesn't make a 4x4 and the proof is in the pudding,maybe a new respect for the OKA will come out of this,hey is not perfect but it's bloody good,when RFW was manufacturing 4x4 and 6x6 trucks there was a lot of knockers ,mainly people who never owned one or couldn't afford one and decided to rubbish the product,well we had one in Halls creek with a 6V 92t and Allison transmission and it was brilliant and unstoppable

I have seen this chassis problem before with Canters, a guy in the States did quite a lot of modification. He fitted a camper body water tanks ,spare wheel carriers ect . It snapped in half.

So how's does one spell "1/2 a Canter"?
Is it just shortened to a "Can't"?

Is it the lifestyle ??
Get a (tough) vehicle that will deliver with 1/2 the effort = Oka ?
or pay 2/1 the price / 2/1 the 'mods' and get 1/2 the lifestyle ??
simple maths ...
OKA

I had figured someone would apply the phrase "doing it by halves" to the canter...
But I was not expecting the maths.
