This is my '87 Range Rover. I picked it up 2 years ago disabled and it sat until Jan 2015 when I swapped out the bad motor for a mercedes OM617 diesel. I also lifted it 4" and put some 33" tires on it to get me by while I finish planning my project.
[Ill come back with pics... Cant figure it out right now.]

|Matt_T||It makes for a fun journey driving in traffic, gets off the line and up to 50 pretty quick so surprises a lot of people, and will happily sit at 70 with very little effort. Its nice having the disc brakes too! AFAIK the running gear was all taken from the same early Discovery and is all as it left the factory. Fixing little faults has taken up so much of my time with this thing that I've not looked closely enough to figure out if its 10 or 24 spline.|

Post a pic of your Rover!
What is the performance like with the GM V8 diesel? What ratio LT230 are you using and what differentials / halfshafts?

Wearing out the 31" STTs first
The HD front and rear trailing arms work great. This Spring it'll get its new HD axles, .437 R&P gears and front locker, then 33" Wrangler MT/Rs. 'Plenty of capability as it is with rear locker and armor, but there's this one boulder that I'd like to get over better... 'Already broke the cheap NitroChargers and put Bilsteins on instead, front and back. The rear spring dislocation cones sound freaky-cool when articulating. It'll be fun to improve articulation up front, too. Ah, with time. The 2 videos crack me up with the squeamish wife and friends... HAAAAH!

My SII, GM 6.2 diesel, Discovery 4spd AT, LT230 and Discovery axles. Been like this 20yrs now and I'm slowly getting it back to a reliable condition from previous owners 'improvements'...

Yes a Defender 90 vs a Defender 130, or a Defender 110
The whole range is called Defender - well at least where I live.
