series LR flex

Hello new in hear so don't all abuse me at once cos I wont be able to keep up

It seems that I have stumbled across the home of all Americas LR lunatics so I thought I would post mine on hear and see what happens





I know 35" of travel is nothing special by your standards but over hear in the UK this thing is unique (as far as I know). It dosnt run buggy springs Revolvers or anything like that and so far only the front end is modded.

Is there anyone else out there with a flexy leaf sprung LR to show off?

I hate to incourage this but here goes.

http://php.indiana.edu/~idgoss/leafflex/flex.html

Just scroll to the bottom, the rest arn't that exciting.

BTW for the 3 people on the board who don't know, that is Timm Coopers 109 PU on the bottom, and the 88" Cummins A series deisel on the top that he sold.

I guess that flexy leaf sprung LRs are just more rare than you would think

Seen all these - surely there are more flexy series trucks than this over there.

Timm Coopers truck is superb though isnt it

Surely the land of flex can produce more than this

Never expected to come across a fellow Englishman on hear what kind of a truck do you run?

As to location I live in Pont-Rhyd-y-Groes Wales, spend half my life in a workshop just outside Rugby in the midlands and currently work in southern Germany so take your pick.

Where are you based?

Does this mean I have been officialy welcomed then.

Mine gets 22" of travel at the front axle with a standard width axle not 80" wide full width jobs. Yes I know my 750x16s don't cut it with you folks but they are street leagle in the UK where we have to hide them under the arches.

Come on show me some series LR flex

That is Steven Schuback's bobtailed RR. There are more pics of it on the bottom of the 1st page of the "pic of your Rover" thread.
