I've got a link to a website (at home) about 3 chaps who went travelling in Africa, in a SWB shogun 3.2, a nissan patrol (i think) and a 110. the shogun looked pretty good with a mild suspension lift, some knobbly tyres and an ARB bar with winch.
I'll post the link when i get home.
my daily driver is also a SWB shogun, 3.2, "4work" (means no rear seats and the windows blacked out). it's supposed to have ETC ('lectronic traction control) but either mine doesn't work, or it wasn't fitted due to it being a "base" model..my dealership is trying to fathom it out.
either way, off road it "ok", nothing special, although my road tyres don't help at all. torque is plenty, and it is a great vehicle for eating up motorway miles, fast, quiet etc.
as you can see, axle travel isn't too special:
This was up on Salisbury Plain shortly after i got it. independant suspension all round on mine.
Here's that link, "sand up your bum tour"
