The Chelsea Truck Company would like to remind drivers to practise #SafeTyreChecks.
Checking the pressure on your Defender Wide Track or Jeep CJ300 Wrangler is easy and takes just a few minutes using the 20p test as the outer band of a 20-pence piece is 1.6mm, which is the minimum legal tread depth.
Incorrect pressures not only increase wear and decrease fuel efficiency but also make the tyre more vulnerable to sudden deflation.
Loving A Chelsea Truck Company CJ300 Is Easy Because It Is Beautiful
Different people have different ideas of what beautiful is, however, when it comes to a Chelsea Truck Company CJ300 – the general consensus is that the Jeep has been transformed into a style icon.

The replacement for the Defender will be ‘desirable’, ‘more sophisticated’ and ‘traditionalists might not like it’ – so says Land Rover’s design chief Gerry McGovern.
McGovern believes Land Rover needs to broaden the Defender’s appeal, make it cheaper to build, and sell more than 100,000 a year – five times as many as many as the current model achieves.
His comments [...]
Jeep Adventures: Million Dollar Point
Can you imagine snorkelling over entire rusting Jeeps, picking your way carefully over the remains?

It is, to many eyes at least, quite ideal: a symbiosis of style, proportion and stance thanks to the addition of front and rear wide wings with integrated vents and bolt apertures, Kahn automatic gearbox, extended wheel arches, Chelsea Truck Company spare wheel cover, side vents [...]
Kahn Jeep Wrangler features in new film
Here’s the dilemma, the Directors of The Edge Of Tomorrow need Tom Cruise to try to roll under a passing vehicle, an attempt whose failure is announced with an off-screen squish.
The next time, however, he gets the timing right, just as a video-game player might finally trial-and-error his or her way through an especially tricky puzzle.
For these particular scenes, a rather military-esque vehicle was needed and this is [...]

Defender for life
The Land Rover was created in the shadow of World War II. Inspired by the American Jeeps that had flooded Europe during the war, it was made from aluminium, which was abundant thanks to the British public answering the Ministry of Information’s call to hand over their pots and pans. The Series I, launched in April 1948, came in various shades of military green.
But designer Maurice Wilkes never intended it to be driven exclusively [...]

Want to buy Afzal Kahn’s first Ferrari?
It is difficult to discuss a Ferrari without a twinge of reverential melancholy. In some cases, blind praise for all things Italian has been misplaced, but in other ones, the superlatives and hyperbole are well-deserved.

Artist paints with remote-controlled cars
Mention remote controlled cars to most of us, and naturally, we would hark back to a bygone era when we blasted them around the house or garden, crashing into the footwear of innocent bystanders and occasionally, building a ramp and attempting an Evel Knievel inspired jump or two.
However, for British artist, Ian Cook, remote controlled cars have replaced the traditional brush [...]
Brits 'love to spend more on their cars than on their loved ones'
There seems to be a different kind of love in the air this year as motorists shun their partners and spend twice as much time maintaining their cars.

A.Kahn Design's guide to engine performance chips and ECU remapping
Now everyone knows that A.Kahn Design is an automotive design house with a difference.
And although we leave the majority of our engine tuning to legendary tuners such as Cosworth and in some cases, Brabus, the very idea of tuning cars comes with a certain amount of negativity. For some it conjures images of boy racers or DIY mechanics.
However, the reality is that car tuning is far more commonplace than you'd think because [...]

An idiot's guide to driving safely: Part 1
With over 30 million cars on the UK roads alone, it's relatively surprising that since there's hardly any space to drive, we don't have as many accidents as some countries are accustomed to.
Despite this figure, sadly, somewhere in the region of 2,500 people are killed each year and that's a figure that has to be reduced fast.
More often than not, it's 'human' error which leads to crashes, but we have to try and be as aware [...]
