Hi,
I've been lurking here for a while, figured it was time to say hello.

My name is Grant and I live in Portsmouth NH. Usually wheel with Exploring NH but catch as many rover parties as I can. I'm on my second Disco 2. My first one was white SE7, bone stock that I started building up over 3-4 years.
New and Shiny!!


Seasoned!!


This year I found a TOTALLY done 2001 D2 on ebay. Bought it from a guy in NJ named Ryan (some of you may know him) and am currently in the process of beating the crap out of it regularly. Winter Romp cost me a door and a fender so we're off to a fabulous start (sadly I mean that with all seriousness. I have issues)


Hopefully I'll see some of you guys at Deer Lake or maybe I'll take the trip to the Pines/Rausch Creek. Have to go to RC eventually because there is already a sticker from there on the truck and I'm too lazy to scrape it off... guess I'll just have to go!!

Happy Rovering!

Welcome! It's nice to see new Land Rovers being used as they should and not as mall rovers.

Thanks, Everyone at my work said I'm insane for doing that to it, I laughed and told them that's why I bought it. I wanted something that was capable but at the same time super comfortable any other time. Loving my rover so far.

Welcome Moose. All you have to do is drive the LR3 like it belongs to your ex and you'll fit right in with Sam. Laughing

Oh, and don't follow me. I drive like I'm blind... Cool

Welcome to the madness!

Sorry about the background checks, we work closely with the FBI and ICE as well as AA to make sure all of our members are actually crazy enough to own one of these trucks. And to keep spam to a minimum on the forum

gonna have em checked and pressure tested it is only $45

also gonna soak the cats in citric acid while apart

not sure if I want to pin the sleeves while I have it half tore down just for good measure, just hope the exhaust manifolds unbolt

I did the intake set several months back and then the head gaskets started leaking externally, not looking forward to taking it back apart

tires, i use the treadwright guard dog b2b design. they are amazing for the price. but if you wanted an AT instead i think they have a b2b AT design now as well. i might be going to a bigger lift on my classic if you want my OME springs. they are 2"

I take it they are medium weight or better? will they work with my Bilstien shocks? how much?

I just want a plain a/t generic, I run continental contitrac now and they seem fine for trails but could be a little more aggressive for slick areas, they wear great and drive great on the road running 235/70/16 I will probly only go to 235/75/16

no they are 9275 front and 9276D rear ( part # from the ab site) guessing standard size

I got em from a u pull with springs, seems the front springs I got are med duty and work great with the winch weight, the rears are light duty and with a little weight in the back it squats just like with the old ones, we had guessed by the markings they are arb springs either way payed $65 for the set of shocks and springs

stinks about the rear springs I got cause I like how it sits now and for me would be fine once the running boards are removed, I am guessing the 2" probly won't sit much higher with the extras installed

if you plan to put more armor on, sliders, belly skid or fuel skid etc. i would just go get the terrafirma HD kit from Lucky 8.
