      The ROTW 90s have a bulkhead behind the seats that severely limits any room for the driver and make for a terribly uncomfortable positioning. I know some people who can help get eyes on one if youre interested. The Brits know that their farm implements are now eligible for import and are slapping shiny paint jobs on their worst garbage and sending it over to eager buyers who are mostly disappointed by the results.

      Looks like rear has the spare on it. So that means the back wheel on the door is also a spare because the regular wheels can't be attached the back door.

      I would say that it is still high in the pricing. That amount of miles with no mention of motor/ trans/ clutch work would make me a little wary though. Im assuming sunroofs so check everywhere under the carpets for rust. 150k is just about max on the BOPR V8s.

      That doesnt mean anything. My D1 had 5 spare wheels and no alloys. Spacers are available to move the mounting pad up and away from the door. I like the spares better than the alloys.

      I'm ready to start car shopping...


      D1 keeps overheating on the highway. Can't figure out why. Last summer I replaced the radiator, fan clutch, checked the t-stat and head gasket. Isn't leaking anything, but still over heats.

      It's strange.

      It will randomly overheat going down the highway on hot days. Cooler days, no problem. Maybe the waterpump just can't take it on the hot days?


      My eyes are naturally looking to the left now because of my many times I have to check the temp gauge. I envy other drivers because of their ability to drive with the AC on.

      well i guess im a sucker for punishment also... joined the club last night....

      97 manual discovery, power windows/mirrors/cruise/power locks all work, a/c and it works, manual cloth seats, no sunroofs, big cargo rack, hitch and trailer wiring, i bought it from the 2nd owner with all receipts since new. tires have a lot of life left, no rust anywhere (its been a washington/california/mexico car as the first owners owned it until last summer and drove/moved all over the place)
      also came with the full 1997 service manual printed out in a (huuuge) binder - they took it for one last "expedition" to mexico before selling it and i think they printed the manual for that.


      looks just like this guy but with chunkier tires and a rack


      so far it made the trip home fine

      I joined the club on the 23rd, took my friend and former classic owner VR6GURU with me to to check out the truck. A few little issues but no deal breakers.



      Had a CEL that kept popping back up after being cleared when i picked it up. Changed out the plugs and wires as well as cleaning the maf and the throttle body sorted that issue. Took it to get it smoged last friday, passed with flying colours. Hit up AAA on saturday, got the registration transferred and that was that. Wanted to take it up a local trail here in socal called the Rincon-Shortcut but apparently its closed. Since we had made the drive up the canyon we took the truck out to the OHV area and played around a bit. A good time was had by all.

      Too bad now that you have a rover I got rid of mine.

      Good to see you got it all sorted.

      Got some goodies you could use

      Man, you guys are tempting me so bad... I'm a glutton for punishment myself. If my W124 doesn't bankrupt me I'd love to find a base Disco 1 (manual 'box) or a RR Classic to bomb around in for the winter and on vacation in OBX.

      Went out wheeling with some of the SCLR guys on sunday up in the San Bernardino National Forest near Big Bear. Played with the new gopro camera i picked up, need to work on positioning and making sure the lens is kept clean. Straight out of the camera with no editing, so not all that exciting but its something:

      Not bad for the first time out on some real trails.. Here's one of the other trucks in the group going down one of the trickier spots on the trail:
