Aug 12:

• Smoked side repeaters

Oct 12:
• New battery
• Under sealed rear half of vehicle with quality Bilt Hamber products (will get the front done before sale). The car was previously under sealed so all seems to be in good solid condition.


Bad Points:

Every car has them and remember this car is now 14 years old so please don’t expect a car that has just rolled out of the factory.

• The aerial had been snapped before I bought it but does still have the bottom section coming out of the wing. I have never replaced it as reception is still perfect. The motor is still there and works so if it bothers you I think a replacement mast is about £20.

• Paintwork is generally in very good condition but does have a small crease from before I bought it just above the offside rear arch. It hasn’t broken the paint and not really that noticeable.

• It does leak about a drop of oil each week from the back of one rocker cover gasket. I did replace these so think it may just need the rocker cover nuts tightening a little as the gaskets were all new so won’t be due to age or deterioration. But it really is not much at all and the oil level hasn’t dropped from when I put new oil in back in July 2012.

• Small dent in the bottom of the A-bar but again not really that noticeable.


I’m regrettably selling my Shogun after 16 months of ownership. I am selling as I have a 2nd child on the way and to be honest my priorities have changed and I don’t get to use the vehicle much at all so would prefer it to go to a good home where it will be used. I travelled 260 miles to buy this Shogun as it was the cleanest I could find after months hunting so be assured it is a great and very capable 4x4 which is not only very safe but very comfortable. The chassis is nice and solid with no welding which is a massive bonus as many have rotten chassis’ or various patches of welding. I have tried to enhance this vehicle where I can and have spent a lot of money maintaining it to a high standard as the intention was to keep this vehicle for another few years and I’m a firm believer in preventative maintenance. Unfortunately and sadly I have to sell it as I just don’t use it enough and between a growing family and a house which I am currently renovating I just don’t have enough time to enjoy it.

Got a 2 1/2 year old and the wife is due to give birth in 6 weeks to a 2nd, mixed with I'm still renovating our house with a few big jobs coming up and also trying to work as much o/t as possible to pay for all the materials I need, I just don't have the time or money to enjoy it really.

Had a great morning out at Ty Rhiw last month but that's two pay and play days in 7 months. Not to mention I generally drove around on egg shells as can't afford the time or money to fix it if I break it! Gutted really but family and house have to come first!

I know it's probably priced at the high end but think it's worth it, not the usual rot box or farm hack...well I did travel 260 miles each way to buy it in the first place! Laughing
