Hi All,

I'll soon be upgrading my suspension and wheels with ORA's 'all in one' kit.
Just a few questions..
Would you recommend that kit..? :huh:
and
Will it change the cost of my insurance much..? :pinch:

Cheers,
LB

Normal insurance may cough at it, thats quite a few mods. A specialist would deal with it better, they will have an idea of what the mods involve.

Ive no experience of the kit but its stupidly good value.

Black Jimny's don't get stuck!

Superb ! Thanks for your response.
I'm with 'National Farmers Union' so I'm sure they'll be .. understanding..? :)

ORA's 'bush wacker' kit works out to be £114 cheaper than if you were to buy all the parts separately!

Thanks again.

NFU are generally quite good. Ive had friends insure heavily modded trucks with them but that could have changed since.
Try Adrian Flux if you have no joy with NFU.

Sounds like a good kit there! I'm insured with grove and dean through performance direct I think and I have it as a classic car policy( that's what they decided for me) and I can do any mod to the car apart from external roll cage and upto 2.5diesel engine and I don't need to tell them about it plus I get breakdown cover and green lane cover too included and it's cheaper than other standard insurances ;)
