what sort of use is it going to get ? if its going to get major use id say you may be better going for something bit more
heavy duty and one that you can get spares for , if its for just in case for laning ad say it would be fine and some thing similar on my last VIT , I intend fitting the same to my GV.

what condition is it in ? long as its A1 id say £150 tops
you can get new ones similar £210 - £270 new

thanks lee!
its gonna be mostly green landing but occasional off road tracks...
i don't really wanna spend a lot of money on one.. I've been looking at a few on ebay ilke winchmax and champion? not sure if there any better?.
not in too much of a rush cause in process of making bumper still... but obi if something comes up cheep was just gonna get it and put it away.....

he asked me for £120 for it he said its in good condition.... but if you think i should go for a better make what do you recommend? (not too expensive)

thanks joe :-bd

id say cant go wrong at 120 as long as it good nik . if it looks like its seen a lot of action walk away the champion and the ones KMS sell on ebay as far as i know are all of similar quality
