Since the last post I have replaced the DMF and clutch, the LCA bushings and some other misc bits and pieces.
Also did a trip 1000km upnorth and got great fuel mileage, 5.5l/100km. I'm very happy with that, considering it's a 4x4 and we drove those 1000km in 11.5 hours.

Nice. How much of an improvement with the new clutch and flywheel?

The new flywheel is super smooth and quiet, but now I hear some other odd noises from the engine! Probably serp belt tensioner or alternator clutch...

Ah, you noticed too? Our forecast today was "Cloudy" - been snowing all day with varying intensity. Around 100mm so far. Second snowfall this week, plus one a month ago that melted away. This lot will stay until April

I need more ground clearance! Had to reverse a bit from that point and turn back, didn't want to risk getting stuck further in the woods...That's the downside of working in forestry...I'll have to wait for the road to get plowed.
I already have the factory rough road package and I'm not sure if it can be lifted further so I've ordered some strut and coil spacers to test. They give 20mm of lift, we'll see how that goes when they arrive. If they work well I think I'll source some springs from a Yeti or Tiguan or something, but it's time consuming trying to find out what fits and what doesn't so I'll go with the spacers for now.
I could put a SUV or a proper 4x4 to good use (unlike most of their owners) but I like this Skoda so I'll try my best to get it to work for me...

Good luck. Nice to see that you have snow there. 62 Fahrenheit here.
