I've got pics of that breakage day, but they're on my old puter & don't have a networking setup. No idea how to transfer images to my new one
It all depends on what you do with it, really.
There's a big difference in the hardcore 4x4 world between 10 years ago and now, as you know.
The important thing is to know what you're capable of and to have fun with it.
Even an anvil has it's limits.
