      Lovin it!!! Another dubber with a land rover. Myself, Muddy, and a few other old friends have all been dubbers at one point, and some of us still are but one thing is for sure we all have rovers

      Alaska huh? How many miles round trip was that?


    9. 06-21-2007 08:11 AM #114
      yeah man, it felt kinda like old home when i found a rover thread on here.. the grill is a gulf states "saudi grill" thats OEM on the middle east trucks. its on OME 2" with 1.5 spacers up front and OME 2" expedition rate springs in the rear with OME shocks all around. safari gard rear trailing arms, RTE fronts, ext. stainless brake lines, ARB rear, RTE hybrid self made fornt bumer with a warn HS9500i, LR factory rack with 4 Hella 3000s and home made flooring, under the hood its a 4.6 with that flows out thru a flowmaster and its backed up by an R380 5 speed, and on the inside its hooked up with a CB, a scanner, and on-board compressor with a 5 gal tank welded to the frame, full autometer gauges, 1000w power inverter, and thats all i can think of off the top of my head. it was built to be a live in-go anywhere rig.. the ride to AK took 4 1/2 months and i covered close to 16k miles.. one hell of a ride.

      Welcome to the other cult! It's funny because Vortex is like an old home for me similar to the way this thread is for you. I no longer own a VW (for now) but I usually come around to see what's going on in the world of dubs and this is a nice little stop for us Rover owners to BS and post pics.

      You have some nice mods on that Rover of yours. I am also glad that you mentioned the Saudi grill as I suspected that is what you had. I have coveted that grill for as long as I’ve owned my truck but have never been able to find one. Where did you get it from? Did you have to cut the grill for winch clearance?

    11. 06-21-2007 01:26 PM #116
      i got that grill from northeast british parts for like $60 years ago.. at the time they had like 500 that they bought as overstock. not knowing the worth of the grill, i hacked the crap out of it to fit the warn thinking it would open airflow a little with the winch sitting in front of the grill and then id have my stock grill to replace if i ever put it back to stock. little did i know that grill could bring like $350 now.. if u can even find one.

      Your talking french to me, ive been on the internet last night and today researching my find.. I bought it for $1000 and drove it home 2 hours on the interstate... has front end damage, im trying to source some parts.

      LT230 - is that the billy bad azz motor or something?

      I want to get a roof rack to put spare tire up there and other crap. I might lift it also but not sure if i want to put alot of money into it quite yet.


    21. 07-20-2007 12:17 PM #126
      check out rangerovers.net for the basics..

      the lt230 is the t-box, and it has a center locking diff, its better then the borg warner unit in the 1990 and up. you dont need a lot of money to lift it. you can get 2" with just springs and fit a 265/75r16 [~32"] Old Man Emu HDs will run you about $250.. have fun with it, that old dog will stand up to some serious abuse.

      and the 3.5 V8 under the hood is anything but bad ass..

      How is the reliability on 1998-2000 Discovery models? Even with 40-90k miles they're like 5-11k. CHEAP. Are they bombs or something?

      They just suffer from lousy resale value. In that age range i believe they got away from using the Lucas made (but licensed from bosch) EFI and using A standard bosch made EFI. I'm not an expert but i think my dates are in the ballpark. Not bombs, just british

      the disco didnt go to bosch until the series II came out mid-99. they sold both I and II side by side in 99.. 98 and 99 were good years for the series I discos.. but they are still GEMS engine managment. my 97 has been one of the best vehicles ive owned.

      for the money, they are a steal and mantained properly theyll do 250K+ miles, they just leak a little.. but a little mud on the rear main seal will absorb most of it


    31. 10-11-2007 12:59 PM #136
      Don't want to hijack this thread, but I had a question similar to the one posed just above.

      I'm thinking about picking this guy up in some time if things go right, and was just wondering if its going to kill me in repair bills. It's a 97 with 71k on it.

      I love the color, and have always loved the look of Rovers.


    32. 10-11-2007 01:58 PM #137
      it all depends on how it was maintained.. drive it.. if theres a miss, or it hesitates, chances are there is carbon buildup on the valves. look underneath.. the rear main will most likely be wet, if its more then just wet.. pass. or be prepared to do a rear main seal.. check the steering box, itll most likely be wet as well, not a big deal as long as it isnt dripping. park it sowewhere for a duration of time and see how badly its leaking. they all leak.. but it shouldnt bemuch. the trans and tbox are basically bulletproof. check all the windows and locks.. regulators are a common failure. if it smells like gas, the tank recall hasnt been done. if it has service records.. even better

      97 was a good year by rover standards
