Adrian's Tomcat 100"

4 Door Trayback Range Rover

These two off roaders started off as four door Range Rovers. However now they have been converted into trayback Range Rovers so that they can compete in winch challenges. Only a minimum of the easily damaged body work remains with the rear body panels being replaced with a tray made of sheet metal on a tubular steel frame.

Mounted on the tray at the back or the external roll cage is the necessary waffles, recovery gear, spare wheel and rear winch easily to hand. The external roll cage also forms the outline of the wheel arches. The protection is supplemented by substantial rock sliders and skid plates / steering guards.

This 4 door tray back Range Rover is driven by Peter Jackson with Richard Norris as co-driver. Richard did all the running about with the winch cable, tree strop, ground anchor etc.
