That's the problem....I finished it. Now it's not bleeding me dry anymore, and I didn't know what to do with the money I wasn't sending to Pelican Parts. So now I send it to Will Tillerly and AB.


You might be in the right vehicle now. I don't know that a Land Rover is ever really "done". Do you plan to go off-road? If so, start sending checks to Justin at Lucky8...

I don't know how much serious off roading either of them will see.

I bought the '02 a couple years ago for myself, but it was quickly taken over by my wife. I shouldn't have let her drive it, especially since she was driving an Explorer at the time Smile There's really no comparison as to which one you're gonna want to get into even for driving on the street given the choice. I don't need to explain that to anyone here.

The '98 will be doing what the '02 was intended to do: haul me and my gear where I need to get to for hunting and fishing. An F150 with front and rear posis had been doing just fine for that, but I got tired of the crappy turning circle, not having enough covered storage space, and it being simply too big for many of the trails. Nothing I go on is particularly challenging, and I'm not racing to get there.

That being said, the springs on the '98 are tired, and for the same money as stock height I really don't feel like I have any choice other than +2" (which will probably end up being more than 2" as it's definitely riding below stock height right now). I'm now happy with the approach angle (should be comparable to the taller F150) since I took the air dam off of the stock front bumper. Although brush cutters would be useful. I'll probably leave that until/unless I want a winch. But I've been doing just fine with a shovel, some webbing, some chain, three pickets, and a hi-lift. It just makes you think before you mash the skinny pedal.

I do need to figure out some pulling points for the front. The F150 had nice big D-loops attached to the frame right below the bumpers. The little loops hanging from the Disco frame look like they were just transportation tie downs and are obviously totally useless as a pulling point. The hitch with a shackle will do just fine for the rear.

I doubt I'll do much to it other than what I mentioned, general "replace everything that needs replacing" (including all the bushings and rod ends) and a good set of tires.

I'm kind of a big deal around here. You may want to follow me to learn a few things like: smashing in your quarter panel, getting stuck in ponds, twisting off drive shafts and just plain ole breaking down completely. Its an east coast thing...

See how far you are from Rausch Creek in PA. We get together there fairly often. Then there is The Pine Barrens in NJ - some of the members hit that a few times each year.

We get on each other brutally here but it is all in good fun. No haters, just major league ball busting.

Hey guys,

Joined a while ago but just got back to the states after working overseas and all over the place. I'm now in northern NJ. I have a 05 LR3 with the following mods so far:

- Rod mod for 2.5 inch lift
- BajaRack EXP
- Camping Labs RTT
- ARB fridge
- Dual Batteries
- BFG AT TAs


Ordered:
- ARB front bumper
- XD9000 Warn winch
- Australian drawer system for the back


Looking for some good places to put it through the paces and see what it can do. Will keep a close eye on the forum for meet-ups.


Alex

my list:
custom tarp replacement for window
sub box in rear w/o speakers
very lose steering
vibration option when you hit 70mph
one low beam/one high beam/one fog light/one reverse/one tail light/one brake light (car is energy efficient)

has "Saftey" : drivers window doesnt do anything
aerodynamic front bumper with missing pieces/cracks
crinkled piece of rear 1/4 panel (under tail light)
missing trim from rear bumper ^same side

to add to the list

15 codes spit back from autozone.....
NO window motor on driverside
door actuators both front doors shot (doesnt un/lock doors with remote)
wiring problem for tail lights....
leaking brake booster
further inspection... i did notice that the driver window didnt go down nor up... when i pulled panel off today... NO MOTOR! idk what to say dude said "oh wire musta fallen off i was trying to fix it the other day" what a fuck head.

lesson learned: dont ever buy a car off a shady Puerto Rican at night.

also changed out all bulbs at the rear of the car turns out electrical problem as well not bulbs...

codes are as follows....
miss fires:
P0300 (random)
P0301 (cly1)
P0303 (cly3)
P0304 (cly4)
P0305 (cly5)
P0307 (cly7)
P1300 (fuel level too low)

banks:
P0134 (b1 s1) sensor circuit no activity detected
P1174 (b1) different injection times
P0159 (b2 s2) circuit slow response
P0150 (b2 s1) sensor range/performance condition
P0174 (b2) system too lean
P1129 long term fuel B2 system too rich

others:
P1590 - neutral position switch circuit high input
P0455 - EVAP system large leak detected

dash is lose missing screws i am going to tackle that tomorrow and see if this guy pulled any of the bulbs out to hid some problems bounce

oh Ed... fixed that screw... ( for every one else its that little plastic screw to burp the cooling system that in a T) i went to HD and got what you said... thanks. that was another issue my baby had... she was pissing coolant out from there.

Hello,
Have been a RR owner for 12 years a 98 RR HSE 4.6 146K only mod is I went to 285/65/18 tires gave me almost 3" of lift over stock tires. Stock EAS no problems. I do all my own work, have been a wrench my whole life. Have been to the old off road place outside of Jim Thorpe that closed a few years ago and up state NY a few times off roading. Looking forward to going to RC in the future. The RR is the wifes daily so I can't beet her up too badly but she goes through everything I have tried so far. Looks like the club is very active, I hope to do some outtings with you all soon. I am a big "light" fan as the wife has a hard time seeing at night, 800w total up front when everything is turned on. Will post pics when I am allowed.

Cheers,
David

Hey guys,
New to the Club, name is Jordan. I have a 1993 County LWB on OME medium duty springs, big, knobby 245/75 all terrain tires. Have a factory brush guard with plenty of Hellas, and a rack with more Hellas. And a custom Borla exhaust. Been replacing things as the fall off and/or blow up. And I still want to do more with it in the future. Looking forward to seeing you out on the trails soon.

Hey guys!

A quick intro for myself:

My name is Jami & I'm in Medford, NJ. I have a 99 D2 SE7 w/ 167k miles. I bought it in 2008 with about 80k on it. No mods really to speak of other than a ladder & a SD rack that I picked up in Tennessee this fall. We bought a second D2 for my partner in 2009. It has around 135k miles on it.

Over the last few years, I've gotten pretty good at working on them. With some help from the RAVE & LRF, I've done all of the work myself & it's given me a huge sense of accomplishment. We LOVE our Discos & hope to have them for many many years. I'll try to post up some pictures this weekend.

My partner has ZERO interest in wheeling, but I'd like to take mine out for some fun soon. Aside from a few trips into the woods for Geocaching, she doesn't see much action as a DD.
