    95 RRC W/4.2 am I a HIGH?

    Thinking about picking up a Rover with a 4.2 and auto with Trutrac and 4.10s. I don't know shit about Rovers. What am I getting into? It checks a lot of boxes for me since my Montero SAS hasn't gone very far. Sounds the Borg t-case is a weak link. Is a 230 all that it's cracked up to be. The...

    Teach Me To Land Rover

    I have always liked Land/Range Rovers but the reliability reputation has always scared me. I know nothing about them other than internet reputation. Don't even know anyone personally who owns one to ask. I have had the bug to buy a new DD/beater and get rid of my shitbox Honda. I drive 30...

    Anybody have a lead on a healthy 4.0 or 4.6 on the west coast? I don't have the $$$ to pony up on a Turner or AB motor with the sleeves fixed and what not. My rover slipped a sleeve and needs a new heart. Thanks! -Kyle

    Original Rover V8 engine swapping

    I've had thoughts of pulling a Rover V8 from the junkyard for years, converting the engine management to TBI/MPI GM (or even a carb) as a lightweight engine swap option in a light rig (Toyota or similar). There are more than a few of these in the junkyards around here and I like light and...

    Rover Axle Shaft Upgrade Options

    What are y'all using for upgraded axle shafts? Have you had good luck with them? And, what is your rig setup/wheeling style. I'm planning a Rubicon trail run next summer with my Disco 1 and wouldn't mind having better axle shafts/cv's in it before then. Cheers!

    Rover Engine Replacement

    Howdy Folks! The engine in my Discovery 1is starting to have some concerning knock when its cold. I suspect its days are numbered. Here are two questions: 1) Any recommendations on keeping this alive longer? It sounds fine when warm but pretty wicked when cold. 2) Who makes the best...

    DIY Discovery Winch Bumper Build

    I made a thing. These are photos of the thing. I like the thing. Look at my thing. :grinpimp: I imagine this style bumper would fit a rang rover too but IDK. I wanted to keep it high and tight. Winch is wired to the dash for controls too, so I could hit the relays and make it clean.

    Discovery 1 Cooling Fan Saga

    I was driving home from work the other day and decided to drop my Disco into 4low and run up in the hills. 20 feet up the hill I heard a loud bang that I thought was a rock kicking up into the fender. I backed down the hill and noticed the ground on the hill was wet. I hopped out to find my...

    1990 Defender 110 Exoskeleton Questions

    How functional is the exoskeleton of a 1990 Land Rover 110? I don't see any triangulation in the design. I'll assume the points/base of the cage hoops is mounted to a hard point(?). I'm pondering (this week anyway:flipoff2:) on whether to do this on my '94 FS Bronco. BTW; I love the...

    Rover V8 performance

    Hey Guys, I picked up a 99 discover 1 that has had a 4.6 swapped in after the original 4.0 died. I checked the numbers on the block and it is indeed a 4.6. The rig was very slow when I bought it. Since then I put 33" tires on it and over geared the hell out of it to try and pick up some...
