Where were you able to source this beauty? I'm in Indiana trying desperately to find one.

Hi Ross,

Thanks mate, I'll follow up your recommendation.


In 2016 my friend Wayne was recommended to get Tough Dogs shockies. KLR used them. Wayne reported they were good so I got a set. The adjustable setting is very effective, certainly good around town but then set sofyer for corrugations and it rides beautifully. The setting dials are a pain to reach though as you usually get down in the dirt. Nowadays there are better designs with the adjustment setup in easy reach.

Expensive shocks but over the long term...

Here are previousccdiscussion threads from a few years ago. It will be interesting to see what you fit.

I would add that while the supplier is in a good mood because you are spending... ask for a second set of rubber bushes, some postage time saved down the track if they need doing and they are no weight in the spares box.

Also consider new modern front turrets that let you inspect or hose off those rubber bushes easily.

Have recently found out the radiator grille on my S2 is off an S1.
Does not belong with the vehicle - so expressions of interest most welcome.
Will also need an S2 grille, need top LR oval plate if am not 'dreaming'

My thanks to all for the valuable information and advice.  I now have lots more to consider than I had realised.  That is, as well as finding a suitable vehicle and somehow getting it home...

Hi Rod,

Thanks mate, good idea.

You obviously heard I whacked in a Road Ranger 18 speed gearbox ?
