      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.

      As a matter of fact I do.

      It's a tractor winching a flopped Jeep.

      That was a great trip for sure, untill my Rover decided to lay down and take a nap

      The new RRS gets it done just fine too, infact that's what winched me out

      And a blatant shot of my truck

      Well it depends upon what steelies you want. If you want the NATO Wolf's, there are no deals to be had as I can't get those on a deal. Tires...hmmm. You know there are nice Firestone Destination M/Ts on those RR Classic three spokes at Mikey's house that I'm sure the owner wouldn't mind parting with. 245/75-16 is the ideal size for your lift and no fender trimming.

      Are you coming up on Sunday? I think you should so you check out one of the cooler "local" spots.

      LOL!!! See there is hope for Limo drivers out there. SCoop has been everywhere with that truck so there's no need to worry about it so build your damn truck already and stocp being a passenger.

      Oh and that pic is the lead shot on the SCLR page.

      psyko,

      Check this truck out. http://www.roverholic.com/myla....html

      On the SCLR boards the price was reduced to $5,900. For what the truck comes with it's a bargain and it seems the "little work" that the rig requirs is cosmetic or minor. You'd spend damn near half the price of the truck for the drivetrain components. New.

      I would have never guessed Land Rovers resale prices being so freaking low. There was a very nice 02 Disco II for 13,500 in my area...


      In just a few months my car will be paid off and I might just have to keep a eye out for one!

      Like anything Euro you have to take care of a Rover or the problems and the cost of repair will add up quick.

      Does it have to be a Disco? Rangies are aplenty and going for the under $3K range with lifts and tires. What is your price range?

      LOL! I have wheeled a lot of Toyotas and I have never broken a Birf (knock on wood), but I'm trying!

      To be honest, I really wanted a older Range Rover, but I couldn't pass up the 80 and after two years of beating the pee out of it, I think I made the right choice.

      HAHAHA!! you have the Birfs and we have the "twistie" floaters.

      I have mad love for the Toyotas and I like what you've done with yours...thrash it on the trail!

      I had looked for a clean FJ60 or FJ70 at the same time I was looking for a Rover but most of the FJ60's were iffy and the FJ70s....well they're FJ70s, elusive.

      So my bone stock "Soccer Rocker" popped up with low miles and a good price and I've been happy ever since. Plus at the time the nice FJZ-80s were still somewhat pricey.

      80s are a bit more spendy, but if you figure in the front and rear selectable lockers and such, it was worth it to me. One of these days you will have to make the trek up to Portland and we should go wheelin the Mall Cruisers!

      They are definitely nice!

      If you ever make your way down here with the Cruiser we'll hit some trails too.
