      New to the Vortex here ... I had no idea the LR affliction was already here and a thread with photos of folks that I know and trails I've been on!

      I'm "Monkeyboy" elsewhere, but that user name was already taken here.

      oh, picked up an '08 4-dr GTI last week...

      OUCH! You're right no Dormobiles. The funny thing the Landy Dormobile doesn't come to mind first because I naturally think of Aircooled VW transporter derived Dormobiles first.

      O.K. well here are some X-Panda Cabs, Carawagon, Forward Control 1 Tonnes, FC Ambulance, FC Vampire Radio Truck, fire tenders, 6x6 Carmichael Conversions, cop cars, armoured cars, hearse, crane, tow truck, road railer, Otokars as well as the Bowler Tomcat, Wildcat, and Nemesis. This should cover about everything Land Rover not previously seen or mentioned.

      Yeah I guess Honda was providing cars to be sold as Rovers in Europe and Australia (like the Integra/Rover 416i) and in exchange they got a badge engineered Disco a-la Isuzu Rodeo-Honda Passport/Acura SLX - Trooper. What Honda should have been helping the Rover Group with in the whole exchange is tolerances, because you can see a non-Bimmer/Ford Premiere Group derived Rover leak from outer space.

      http://omaha.craigslist.org/car/484217521.html

      I cant seem to sell it. Everytime i drive it something else goes wrong so i think i might be able to my $1500 out of it by parting it out?

      Im not sure where to start with parts or what to ask for them since i am not very familiar with the trucks.

      It has 133k (?) odometer reads 66k but it was replaced. Its an auto, 4x4, v8. Power windows, etc.

      It does run and drive, was involved with front end accident damage to fenders, hood , cowl. I have an extra hood and cowl in white.

      Tires are rims are decent.

      I have a shop to tear it apart but im not going to start tearing it apart until i have the main parts spoken for, like the engine, tranny, transfer case, drive shafts, etc. I will take deposits to hold parts of keep a running total through this thread or email. I am going to still have truck advertised locally to try to sell as a running driving truck.

      I dont have room or time for it. Its been snowing here and i get alot of calls but most of the time the battery too dead to start or my last fun time was the ignition switch broke, which i replaced.

      Located in nebraska. I can frieght heavy stuff at buyers complete expense.

      cory@richmondphoto.com

      Let me know what ya need.

      ARe there other Rover Forums i should post this up for sale at?

      205,000 miles... needed to get off the road. now its a trail/farm truck for my step dad with a 2in OME lift and BFG's.

      Favort thing about the disco and why i miss it was my dads then mine now my step dads.... from 1996-now and 205,000 miles same clutch and head gaskets never pulled. never a single problem ever. and drives better and more fun them my stepdads DiscoII.

      step dad works at landrover dealer so its in a god home now and is only used for whats it made for. but i do hate ot having it. i miss off roading. i miss the feel and sounds of driving the disco.

      the 2in OME lift came from maxador or something like that he is on LRRForums.com as far as i know.


    21. 01-10-2008 01:49 PM #161
      damn you people...I want a DiscoII

      and there is a white 2004 with 25K on it locally.


    22. 01-10-2008 03:44 PM #162
      I saw this yesterday. I wish I had something besides the cellphone to take the pic.

      It looked like a 110, but more like a pickup with a cap.

      Holy Cow that's a lot of miles without any major problems. Oh well, in due time you will probably get bitten by the LR bug again and be back out in the dirt.

      You bought the lift from Mad Max Yedor.

      yea i got it from a good deal i love the 3in RTE lift he did. i will get some newer pics of the disco. it looks better with bigger tires. i had stock RRC tires on it. they seemed small but got them for free and did great off road. and i could stuff them so high into the fenders with out any rubbing.

      Thanks! It's got a 2" Old Man Emu lift, plus taller BFG's with 16" OEM wheels. His truck came standard with those lame 18" wheels w/ street tires. Other than that, it's pretty much stock aside from the obvious- ARB bumper and Hella driving lamps.

      Not too sure what was standard and what was optional on that car, but it's got those fancy reactive sway bar endlinks too. Man, those things are awesome! His Rover is so stable and flat around corners on the street, and very flexy on the trail. I had my doubts in their performace because I'm used to using disconnects, but I was pleasantly surprised.

      Most of the trails we did that day took a bit of convincing from me, as he was pretty conservative in the things he was willing to try. I have a limited amount of spotting experience in a few rock crawling events, so I was confident in his truck's capability (none of these trails were that extreme). He wasn't so much surprised in his truck's capability after each obstacle as he was relieved that he didn't damage anything .

      We had fun!

      I too have missed this thread though I have heard rumors of it's existence.

      My current LR happens to be this 96 5-speed Disco
      2" Billet Spacers and some 245/75 MT/Rs as you can see

      With returning to school I won't have the time or money to play with her so I'll have to wait until I finish school to revive my rover addiction.
