Nice rig and pics! Love the grey with black tint and rims.
What was the major failure?

Looks good, but I think some more shots of the chicks in the bikinis in the ski boat are required ;)

The failure was beleived to be caused by an overboosting issue. Blew a hole in the head and dented the block between 2 and 3 with a major loss of compression. Same time glow plug tip from no.4 was in the cylinder and did a fair bit of damage to the bore.

Ended up replacing just about everything.

The rims dont touch in the guard at full flex which is great... I was a bit concerned going the -13 offset compared to the -22 but they do great.

The BFG are a great tyre and when they need replacing they will go back on with out a thought.
