    The RBs are fantastic for sand driving as they rev out way more than either the TB or TD. Just pick a gear point it up a dune and plant the foot.

    ...And they're considerably lighter as well. Particularly this one; it's original, the only bolt-on is that alloy bullbar.

    The main disadvantage is the timing belt. Dirt and water ingress are a problem. I have yet to add a hose to the top of my new engine's timing belt cover so a high volume low pressure air supply can keep the belt clean and dry.

    Fortunately, Dad's ST30 has almost no off-road use. Mostly long distance touring. There's no mud evident, no rust that I can see, no under body damage. Presumably the timing belt area will be reasonably clean. "Silver" is almost factory-spec, Dad never was one for accessories.

    Nice looking vehicle. You should get a good price for it.

    It makes me sad to think of selling it, because it'll be the end of an era.
    I hope it finds a good new owner.
