Always enjoy your thread up dates. Tigers are unique and like you said an RV’s weight seems to bring on added issues. I’m glad you mentioned the rally in Gunnison. I haven't been to that one but will probably see you there. I was already looking forward to a trip this year into Colorado and that rally will be an added bonus. BTW, when I was a Tiger Owners Forum member I seem to remember a couple folks having their tire treads separating. Pretty sure one guys were BFG’s also but I can’t go and search the forum. I do remember he was an air down on trails guy. I don’t air down on my Tiger but do on my Wrangler, always. The different concideration is due to the loads on the tires. My Tiger weighs 11,000 lbs. and my Wrangler 4,500. To my date my Tiger has just over 50,000 miles, with 30,000 on current Nitto Ridge Grapplers and they still look new. Anyway, thanks for the thread and keeping it updated.
Thanks! Keep looking, they're out there. Finding an older one that hasn't been loved for while is possible and can be inexpensive. The great thing is that Provan still has a great parts support for them and they are straightforward to work on. Good luck!I sure envy your Tiger. Some day (when I'm rich or lucky) I hope to find something similar.
Yeah, it's a 1995 Chevy 5.7 V8. Very basic and reliable motor, heck it still has the old round metal air cleaner and filter on top of the TBI. It was still running the original wires, cap and rotor, not sure about the plugs but they all looked good and clean!If it's old enough to have cap, rotor and wires yes definitely change them! Pcv I don't bother with unless it's failed (doesn't rattle). But most everything I own now is coil on plug.

Probably well due for replacement if they were original! Good simple engines.Yeah, it's a 1995 Chevy 5.7 V8.
