Total newbie here checking in. I guess I'm just another jackass considering a Discovery 'cause they sell for next to nothing & look pretty in online ads. I can't afford a psychiatrist.....anybody want to talk me off this ledge?
Rough crowd here. I like it.

Ok, I am not a newbie to 'wheelin, been around jeeps for about 10 years now, but i just bought my wife a 97 disco... She thinks its pretty. There are some issues with it, I dont want to really do many mods to it, just maintain it, and teach the wife about 4-wheeling so we can go play together. She wanted a 4x4 but had to have enough room for us & 3 kids, plus luggage (for frequent trips to NH). I may need help with repairs, i usually do all myself, but i have NO exp. with anything european except for saab's. So anyways.. Hi all!

Vermont eh? I grew up in MA & ME. Used to go to Stowe in June and Lake Champlane (i hope i didnt miss spell it) in January for ice fishing. Ever go to British Invasion? I went once with my father in-law in his '60 TR3A. As far as talking you out of it, nope, not gonna do it. I just bought one and so far my wife loves it, (2 days) I have never been behind the wheel of one yet.

Hello,
Finally checking in! I'm Hoss and currently am insane enough to own two LRs. An '01 D2, basically stock, and a '97 D1 that is probably the reason that I should be on some medications...
I live in WNC and would love to hear from any other LR nuts from the area.
Great site here!

OK; first post here. Thought I would finally register.........I'm presently on my second Land Rover; a mildly modified '04 Discovery S. I'm located in the boonies of northern Nevada which gives me lots of opportunities to just take off and explore any day of the year. I've done over 130 treks so far in the two rovers.

I got into the 4x4 exploring due to being an avid amateur geologist and geography and history nut. Now the wheeling takes precedent. My rig as she presently sits:



A mild 3 inch lift, some 265/75R-16 BFG ATs, trimmed front bumper, homebuilt wooden (yeah thats right!), trimmed rear quarters, a couple of skids and homebuilt (hidden) sliders. None of the bling found on a lot of mall cruisers (roof racks, lights, etc), just the stuff necessary for this very dry rocky and sandy terrain.

Check Check am I in??? My Name is Don and I believe in function before form. My almost stock 1985 110 with a 300tdi transplant, home made snorkel, Detroit locker in the rear, shock mount lowering brackets and towers with some home made sliders to boot. Far from being finished but it is a driver all summer long, Manitoba is WAY too cold to be in this ice box past mid October!!! And Yes I drove it to Moab and back this year. In the family is another 2 rovers, a 93rrc lwb and a 100" special... The rrc was an insurance purchase cheep and all it really needs is paint and 2 marker lights!!! And the 100" was built by my dad and I out of 2 wrecked incomplete 110's over 2 years.. And yes he drove it to Moab and back this year also.
We don't get into the extreme building that I have seen and herd of here @ pirate but the ideas and info are great. I am helping a friend build a 90" series 2 with a shortened 110 chassis and a 98 disco 4.0 power train with a 3" lift and more then likely bigger then 35" tires. That will be a long build in the long winter months here ..
Cheers Don

Right...all checked.

I am from Australia and have a modded Td5 Discovery, but am looking at getting a Rangie to do up as the toy as the Disco is costing me too much to fix.

I am definitely a newbie and wont try to run with the big boys. Im just here to sit down, shut up and learn.

Cheers

Angus

Safari Gard

Pendy,

Thanks for the question. We are an independent corporation that has purchased the assets of Safari Gard Inc, we will be offering most of the previously offered products, built to a higher standard. Our customer service will also be unmatched, a turn around I am sure will relieve a lot of concerned people.I have had the doors at the facility shut down for three months, while inventory is being built. We will be opening the doors the first week of Jan. We will only accept orders through our web site that will be opening the same time. We will not be offering any products unless they are in stock. I will make myself available for contact and will get back to every response ASAP. If any one has any questions or needs, please contact me at casey@safarigard.com.

Very Respectfully,

Casey Gray

Finally bought a real 4x4!

I take delivery of my military surplus D-90 in 3 weeks. 4 banger diesel, 5 speed, rust free frame. Needs tyres, weather stripping, and a lot of sanding. This thing is a real beauty despite the 5 different colours of paint flaking off. Whats the best way to patch all the holes from the antenna brackets? there are holes in the hard top and front and rear fenders. the doors have holes you can stick your hand through in the middle of the door skins. break out the pop rivets and checker plate! 10 grand Canadian seemed steep until I saw that everyone in the States want 30 grand for their V8s. how much lift do I need to fit 35x12.5s without touching my sheet metal? Where can I find a Turbo? What kind of steering box should I use for my power steering conversion? Watch for my build thread! any advice or opinions appreciated.

Wink 100SRV checking in

Hi,
I'm 100SRV, my apologies for having posted in the past before checking in here...

I've got a Bowler 100 which is a daily driver and trail machine but I use it less often for the commute now as I car share and my passenger doesn't appreciate it! My Bowler is unusual in that I use it for green laning as opposed to the race career most of these trucks have. I also have the use of a '58 88" Series One (my Dad's) this has a tweaked 2.25 petrol engine...

If any of you Pirates need advice on auto electrical problems I'd be glad to assist - I am an electrical systems engineer for a low-volume truck manufacturer.

Happy wheeling!

Checking in

Just wanted to check in. I've been lurking for over a year, so it was about time.

The stuff you guys build/restore is plain out of control. I'm here gathing inspiration, and to fully exploit the search button.

This will be about it from me as far as posts, I'm just here to learn- I've had the rover bug for a lot of years now.



Thanks from RI!

Here you go

Registered and been reading for a few years now, and thought I would introduce myself before I post. Just got done with the first part of my 04 D2 build, still need to figure out what way to build my axles. It's got:
3" RTE HD, Bilstine 7100's, RTE radius arms, dp2 watts linkage, RTE bumpers, front skid and sliders, Gas skid, QT diff guards, Tom Woods rear shaft, 4 bolt flange kit, Rebuilt front with Spicer, XRC 10k winch, abs ext., ext. steel braded brake lines, RTE relocation tire mount, D90 washer bottle(relocated), Magnecor 8mm plug wires, Bosh Platnum+4 plugs, everything runs full synthetic, new surpentine belt, 6ftx4ft lil rack, ladder, HID conversion, SR sway bar dissconnects, new motor and t-case mounts, reinforced 1/8' front frame horns, 60" High-Lift, onboard air(not permanent), new rotors/ferodo pads, RRS Side vents(connected to air box) This was done by previous owner.
Still need HD steering, build axles, SD full rack, lots of little stuff. No option to load pics? How do you do it? It's not like other forums where the option is in Manange at the bottom? Thanks
