Since we have so many new people coming on the forum I figured we should start an introduction thread.

I'll kick us off - My name is Jake and I currently live in Dallastown PA (York County)

I have a 1996 Discovery named Betsy aka the Albino Armadillo. I change my truck damn near weekly. You can follow a lot of the stuff I do on this very forum.

Here's a pic of the truck the day I picked it up

Introduction Img_0010

And a more recent picture

Introduction Disco211

I am always down to go wheelin and always here to help if any newer guys have any questions or needs help doing work.

Look forward to meeting all the new people and the others I havent met yet.

Hey Guys(and Gals?)

I'm Ron, and live in/around Binghamton, NY. I drive a 2000 Disco II. The truck currently has a Rover Racks LLC Offroad Challenge Voyager Rack w/rear ladder, Safari Snorkel, ARB Deluxe Winch/Bull Bar, 8 Pro Comp Explorer 100w lights, 2 on bumper, 2 on rear of roof rack, 4 on front of roof rack, 265/75 R16 Goodyear Wrangler MT/Rs,16" black "steelies", Borla Cat-Back Exhaust , ARB/OME Heavy duty shock/spring kit.

Haven't hooked up all the lights yet, as im trying to figure out a way to do the wiring in some sort of clean fashion. Hopefully I can spec out y'alls trucks at Rausch Creek this weekend for a better idea...

It should have had sliders and a steel rear bumper by now, but I had ordered them through Bottorf Fabrication... To make a long story short, since I'm sure some of you have either dealt with Bottorf, or heard of someone who got screwed by them...I never got my products that I waited 10 months for, but did get a full refund.

My name is Marc,
I live in Joppa Maryland. I've acquired this '95 D1, It came with an ARB front bumper w/Hellas-Drilled & slotted rotors with 245/85/15 tires. I met Nick this week, He is a 5 minute walk from my home. Apparently my ride has a two inch lift comparing it to his. I'm trying to get it road worthy Hopefully getting to a few events.

My name is Dave, I'm down in northern DE. I've had/have jeeps mostly, but have always liked and respected the Rovers. I have an 04 se7 in Giverney green. I am putting on an OME medium duty kit this sunday. Only other things I have is a Borla exhaust, Warn lights up front, roof rack with ladder, 255/55-19 Goodyear MTR tires on 05 Range wheels.

I plan on getting another set of smaller wheels, 16 or 18" so I can step up one tire size and have a wider variety to choose from. I may go with an ARB bumper up front in the future as well.

See everyone at Rovers on the Rocks 3.
Here are some pics of my jeeps if anyone cares, and my disco.

Yo, DAVE, Dave here. sick Jeeps! Much Respect. Are you still coming this weekend???

Good choice on the wheels, bad choice on the bumper. Come and learn this weekend and don't go through 3 bumpers to get the right one like I did. Rovertym or similar...

Welcome aboard. i hope you enjoy Rovering as much as I do.

Cheers!

Thanks for the compliments, guys. Weekend of wheeling after Thanksgiving is planned in Killingworth, CT @ the Deer Lake Scout Reservation.

https://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=133228240118210&pending&context=create

I plan on being there as long as everything goes well on a run this coming weekend. If it's reasonable for any of you I've heard it's some pretty good wheeling and this will also be my first trip there.

I am from CT originally and went to Deer Lake as a kid. I will be up there for Thanksgiving, but will be gone before that ride Mad . I grew up in Clinton, right down the street from Killingworth.
