      2" Lift
      rear springs in front and
      2" spacers in rear.
      Old man emu HD shocks
      and
      265/75R16 Mudking tires(31.7")

      I modified the sway bars but left them in. May take them out eventually.

      I love the lift. Rides very nice. Would recommend it to anyone. OME shocks are great.

      I started to look for a lift and tires The only thing I'm concerned is fitting in my garage. I was thinking of a 2" lift with some 255 / 75

      A valid concern as I no longer fit in mine

      Be warned you will find things to fill the space in the garage.

      This is my friends '02 Discovery TD5 that we spent the day offroading at a Quarry in just before Xmas.

      I live in Hyde, just near Stockport... not too far from Knutsford.

      The Quarry was in a place called Tixover, near Peterborough. It's a purpose made offroad playground

      My mate's Disco is bog standard and on stock road tyres - it's still pretty impressive what it can do

      Some of the land rovers in this thread are awesome. I myself have always had a thing for the Defender 110.

      Haha. That winch would last about 10 seconds if that thing ever saw any real trail time.

      I'm not arguing here but I'm curious as to what makes you say that?


    18. 02-03-2007 07:45 PM #53
      Mounting the winch that low totally killed approach angle on it. I would bash the hell out of that thing on a regular basis.

      Here's a pic of the front of my Jeep. I ram the tow hooks into rocks at least once every time I go out on the trail. Maybe that's why they're so bent and don't have any paint left on them?

      I saw a Disco like this in town a couple months ago. Odd, because we never had this pre-facelift model in North America.


    20. 02-07-2007 02:43 AM #55
      Here's my Disco, 3" RTE lift with Fox 10" remote res. shocks, 235/85/16 BFG MTR, soon to be 34x10s on beadlocks (not the crappy fake kind either). TJM bumper w/ Superwinch EP9 and synth line. Onboard air, recently upgraded to a ViAir 450, Hella 4000s on the roof, 1000s on the bumper (they are still street legal), next major mods are lockers and HD axels, then I need to build a rear bumper and rock sliders, then stiffen the chassis a little bit and do an engine cage, possibly a full internal roll cage, some Sparco seats and 5 point harnesess. Right now it holds it's own just fine, will keep up with most buggies out in the desert, and all but the most hardcore rock crawlers and truggies on the trail. Unfortunatly I don't have a ton of great action shots, usualy go out with just 1 or 2 other trucks so I spend a whole lot of time spotting and not much shooting. Also if you Roverheads havn't heard of it check out LRRForums.com







      Last weekend I was out at an MDR race pre-running and working chase for a 1400 class team, couple weeks from now it will be the Calico Mine trail in So Cal, this summer is Moab, Colorado, and the Rubicon.

      Now for some other random Rover related shots

      I am up in Santa Barbara. You ever do any local wheelin?

    22. 02-07-2007 02:42 PM #57
      There's not much local in SB. There are a few trails up the 154, though I've never been up there. Gorman is reasonably close, and there are some trails in Piru and Ojai. Pismo isn't too bad of a drive, and there are plenty of mild trails out in the Angelos Ntl. forest area. On the 2nd 3rd and 4th there are a bunch of us heading out to Calico near Bartsow for a club run. Check out LRRForums.com and SCLR.org those are the two main forums and clubs in the area, and there are enough people in and around Ventura/SB/T.O. and such that somebody will be up for wheeling pretty much any weekend.

      oh, I know all the local trails, just wondered where you went. Miller Jeep can be a fun one, but will have changed a lot since the fire.

      sorry for the thread jack.

      So do you have any pictures of LR's being anything other than fancy tractors? Or is that it?

      Let's see some more pics of them actually doing something other than driving through a hay field.

      Here's my first Rover.





      I was driving home from four wheeling going southbound on the freeway with my cruise control set to 75MPH at 10:15 at night. I hit a Coyote which bent the steering rod, and away I went.

      The Disco made a hard left which blew the tires off the bead and I rolled about five times across oncoming traffic. Luckily I didn't "collect" anyone else during my ride. I finally stopped on my roof facing northbound.

      I blew all of the bloodvessels in my eyes, blew both ear drums out from ponding my head against the roof as it caved in, had a beat up shoulder from the seatbelt, and a few minor cuts. Nothing else.

      hey..that looks like it was pretty bad never seen a disco mangled like that, at least you made it through that
