Nice rig!
This is where I am heading with mine. I will probably add an ARB deluxe winch bar first, here in Australia there are lots of things that jump out at you! My first trip out when I got her I had to dodge Kangaroos and cattle wandering over a road posted at 80Kmh!
Tires will be the next thing and maybe a slight lift using RR coils etc.

Cool one... Yeah, I put old man emu shocks and heavy duty coil springs (763 OME Rear Very Heavy Duty - 200 kg constant load) which I think are needed with the rack and tent etc...

I have a BajaRack and that comes with a Jerry Can holder as option. Here is the link:
http://www.bajarack.com/land-rover

and all the accessories that fit the rack:
http://www.bajarack.com/accesories-page

it's a pretty good solution: base frame that mounts to the rack, can holder on top that ties down the cans with a flat steel bar between the cans. Rock solid...

These guys at BajaRack are really nice...

Nice Rack :victory: whats the price good not find it on their site.

Nice Rack :victory: whats the price good not find it on their site.

This is from an email with the BajaRack guys before I bought mine (in spring) so I don't know if the prices are still correct. But with the can holders and shipping from San Diego it was about $1000. Difference between low and high profile is that for low you have to remove the existing roof bars... I got the high profile version for my Discovery.


The BR-LRD2-LP-1-0 low-profile basket rack (1-piece, 90" long by 60" wide, 98 lbs) retails for $820

The BR-LRD2-HP-1-0 high-profile basket rack (1-piece, 90"long by 60" wide, 106 lbs) retails for $845.

The BR-LRD2-LP-EXP-1-0 low-profile Expedition rack (1-piece, flat area for tent is 49" long and 58" wide, overall 89" long and 58" wide, 90 lbs) retails for $795

The BR-LRD2-HP-EXP-1-0 high-profile Expedition rack (1-piece, flat area for tent is 49" long and 58" wide, overall 89" long and 58" wide, 97 lbs) retails for $815.

Thanks! I already have a Saftey Devices rack, but it looks like this Bajarack fuel can holder will work on it as well. Very good looking set up. :cool:

My guess is either a full set of P38 steel spares which sounds like too much trouble, NATO steels, or lightly modded steels from w/close lug pattern. Not good for cooling brakes that's for sure.

David you running 235/85 tires or?

Davidz
08-25-2010, 08:04 PM
thanks guys!!! i appreciate it,
bobDog, you want one, forget the why. focus on the how.
i do all my own wrench turning, so i added and modified as a i went along. or as the checking account would allow, I honestly havent ever added up what it cost to get it to where its at now... its all been one part at a time, springs here, tires there, sliders, etc, i would say the most expensive part i have bought would be the RTE custom front Bumper ( rovertym engineering) custom all the way. but its rock solid, and was worth the $,$$$.$$. I did spend 18 years working and running a garage, and these D1's are a joy to work on compared to most. I bought it because it was easy to work on, i switched to steel wheels becuase i can pull an axle without removing a tire ( trail fix )
alot of things like that make the Discovery a good trail rig, ease of fix, access to parts, and they can be very reliable in the right hands. 95-99 D1's are special, and i would say IMO 99D1 is the best of them all, just newer with upgrades. same truck though.
i have a alot of mods to this truck, another guy told me i should do a build page, to explain what its allabout, hate to clog the Picture thread with ramblings.

Thanks again,

Nope, it hasn't been featured in a magazine, a lot of people don't like it that I've 'ruined' a good old classic SIIa by doing all these mods.

Yeah, I really like those km2's. They're quiet on the road and they perform very well offroad. The ones on mine are 255/85's, the tallest I could get without going to rediculous widths. No PAS yet, steering is quite heavy when aired down......

Small Block Chevy V8 most likely a 350CI carb'ed Rion block/Head motor... Not MY personal motor of choice but it would sure be easy to find parts for here in the states. And they're reliable and would move a series rover around very well.

That is another great looking truck there.

The Toy/Rover I'm thinking of uses a full Mini-truck Drivetrain and 8" solid axles. Seemed like an awesome combination of light weight and strength and the Rover is likely lighter then the Mini-truck that it replaced so the 22RE might have a chance to push it around pretty well.

Love your trucks Toy-Roverlander. Lake Beueller your buddy's truck sounds sweet too.

That's a huge compiment to me! Thanks!!:bike_rider:

As for the drivetrain, I used a 3B (3.4 4cyl diesel) from a 1982 BJ42. The gearbox is the H41 4speed with the 16spline single piece transfercase from a 1980 BJ40 (thankfully I don't have the split-case, now I can fit an Orion). Axles are from a 1995 HDJ80 and have the 4.11 diffs with factory lockers front and rear.
Driveshafts are custom lenght wide-angle yoke, 110mm rear/180mm front sliders, LR bolt pattern. Diff flanges have been turned and drilled to accept LR yokeflange, T/case end uses machined home-made adapters.


TBH, there're not that many cool trucks here, there's some cool Patrols and a handfull of Cruisers around but not that many LR's that have the WOW factor. Except a pretty nice SIII 109" with a full Patrol driveline, 3.3TD and all..

AUS and the US have got many, many more very cool trucks! There's a way bigger market for custom stuff than over here. Way easier to get all the parts needed, tabs, links, joints, adapters, shocks, springs, T/cases..... the whole lot. Way more difficult over here and very expensive. I've bought heaps of stuff overseas.
It's funny actually, I bought the truck in Wales, it now lives in the Netherlands, the engine and gearbox come from Belgium, many small parts from the UK, shocks from the US, steering arm/knuckle rebuild kit, and some other small parts from Australia and some little parts from Japan..

That's TJ's truck. The motor is a Chevy 305 (because that's what he had laying around). It's mated to the FJ40 transmission and transfer case. He had to fabricate the body and motor mounts. But for the most part, it was almost a perfect fit. You'll notice that the front wheel wells were trimmed a little in the front. The FJ wheel base is 1" longer than the Series. He also needed to trim the frame horns in both the front and back. The bumpers are custom as are the sliders. The paint and body are original with the exception of the firewall.

The best part about the truck is the driver. He's a great guy and has no problems getting out and wheel his truck.

Not much... he's a member of the dutch LR club but isn't active on the club forum. Don't have any pics either.

I know it's spring over, it's got those R160 axles and the 3.3turbo diesel with matching gearbox. It's a beat up offroad truck on 34 or 35" or something... He hasn't paid much attention to getting the most out of the suspension though, stock length shocks, stock springs front and back....

I know it's spring over, it's got those R160 axles and the 3.3turbo diesel with matching gearbox. It's a beat up offroad truck on 34 or 35" or something... He hasn't paid much attention to getting the most out of the suspension though, stock length shocks, stock springs front and back....

EEK... that Motor and trans were the Bane of My Existence in Australia. The 4.2TD, and 4.2 I6 Gassers were awesome, but that 3L Diesel was just plain awful in my experience. Maybe it'd have an easier life hauling around the lighter Series Rover body. Otherwise that sounds like a sweet truck seeing as the Patrol axles and chasis are plenty beefy for sure.

It's not the 3.0 out of the Y61 (GU) Patrols mind, it's the old 3.3Td out of the mid 80's, what is that MQ/MK or something Patrols.

Would that be an SD33T??? I know RM&po here on the board has an AMAZING SD powered and Portal'd older school Patrol (my personal fav body style actualy) Those motors were also used here in IH Scouts as well. Great motors from what I've heard/read/seen. Sounds like a sweet truck.

That's TJ's truck. The motor is a Chevy 305 (because that's what he had laying around). It's mated to the FJ40 transmission and transfer case.

That's interesting that he put a Toyota transfercase into a Series truck when hardcore FJ types are using Advance Adapter's (call Matt at Advance Adapters) new adapters to put the stronger Series transfercase into their Toyotas.

I'm a little surprised that he went to a weaker transfercase behind the V8.

A Chevy V8 -> NP435 or SM420 or SM465 -> Series transfercase -> Series axle housings with either ARB or Trutrac, 4.75:1 R&P & hardened 24 spline or larger axles would have been an easier & stronger combination.

The Series body is sitting on a Cruiser frame, so the most obvious thing to do is use the cruiser driveline.

For a stronger T/case, if it ever would be a problem, it would be wiser, though a bit more expensive, to go with either a splitcase (driveshaft lenghts are different) or better still, an Orion which bolts straight in.

No, you're right about that. I do drive a Series with Toy drivetrain. It's that 88" that is a rebodied Toyota.

I kept the Toy gearbox for it's huge strenght and the T/case can be swapped for a 4:1 Orion, very strong and nice low gearing:victory:

A Land Rover 88 rebodied toyota would be a Land Rover frame, suspension, drive train (Or at least most of it anyway) with the Land Rover body removed and a toyota body added. Rebody means to change the body on the undercarriage.

A toyota with its body removed and with a Land Rover body on the toy frame & underpinnings would be a rebodied toyota.

A Land Rover body & frame with drive train parts from a different vehicle is usually considered a Land Rover with modified drive train.

I'm still confused as to what you have.

The toyota gearbox is not as strong as the American light truck top loader four speeds. You would have been able to use chain store off the shelf clutch between the Chevy V8 and a Chevy truck gearbox. Yes the Orion is a good transfercase, but so is the Series transfercase. Advance Adapters developed the adapters to add a Series transfercase to the various American and toyota gearboxes because the Series case is very strong and way cheaper than an Orion. A 4:1 low range is a good reason to pick the Orion over the 3.27:1 or 2.89:1 or 2.35:1 versions of the Series transfercase if you are building a serious rock crawler. But it is a way low ratio for most expedition type travel. Of course that statement depends a lot upon what your R&P ratio is. What is your low range first ratio at the axle?

Well whatever the vehicle is and is intended for it looks nice.

:sombrero:
No worries.. Mine (the blue 109") started live as a standard 2.25diesel Series IIa 109" stationwagon. During the past 4years I first swapped the 2.25 for a 3.4diesel from a BJ42 cruiser, complete with gearbox/t-case.
I've swapped to range rover axles last year, and changed it to 80Series cruiser axles, sprung over a couple of weeks ago.
So the chassis and body are still Land Rover, but modified obviously.

That grey 88" on the previous page started life as a FJ40 cruiser but the body was taken off and replaced with a LR body. And apparantly the motor got swapped too.






The toyota gearbox is not as strong as the American light truck top loader four speeds. You would have been able to use chain store off the shelf clutch between the Chevy V8 and a Chevy truck gearbox. Yes the Orion is a good transfercase, but so is the Series transfercase. Advance Adapters developed the adapters to add a Series transfercase to the various American and toyota gearboxes because the Series case is very strong and way cheaper than an Orion.

I wouldn't be surprised that the domestic gearboxes are stronger, but I reckon the Toy one will not have any problems with the 90hp/167lbs-ft that my motor developes.. Even with a turbo added that gearbox will have a very long life.
Availability of SM420/465 (I think you're talking about those) over here would be very limited, thus expensive, to say the least. And waaaaayyy overkill. Besides, from what I've read, the toy gearbox is smoother and less cluncky.



A 4:1 low range is a good reason to pick the Orion over the 3.27:1 or 2.89:1 or 2.35:1 versions of the Series transfercase if you are building a serious rock crawler. But it is a way low ratio for most expedition type travel. Of course that statement depends a lot upon what your R&P ratio is. What is your low range first ratio at the axle?

Well whatever the vehicle is and is intended for it looks nice.

I like a good crawl ratio. I'm tall and the seating position is absolute crap, my legs and foot are in a Z-shape when behind the wheel. Add to that a very heavy clutch combined with a bad left knee(clutch assist is coming!) I'd like to have to not ride the clutch to go any slower when manouvring that big beast through tight spots in the woods.
At the moment it's got an overall low ratio of around 40:1 with a 4.1 axle ratio.

The other thing that I really like with the Orion is that gear overlap will be WAY better. At the moment my lowest gear is 1st low which is around 40:1. 2nd low is around 22:1, 1st high is around 21:1.
As you can see, 2nd low and first high are nearly the same ratio.
With the Orion I'll get: 1st low 80:1, 2nd low 46:1, 3rd low (around 27:1), 1st high 21:1.

As you can see, there's much more choice in low gears. I might be using 2nd and 3rd a lot but at least I can have a nice low 1st for when I need it.

And the Orion is a bolt on upgrade which is real nice, no adapters or driveline changes needed.

I agree that is way high unless you are doing maintained trails (dirt roads). Stock Series low first is 41:1 and I was always slipping the clutch and hopping from rock top to rock top with a lot of suspension stress. For 10 years I had a wide ratio gearbox installed that gave me a low first of 70:1 at the axle. For the kinds of driving I do that was way too low. I think I only needed it a couple times. And I had to switch to cable linkage to keep the engine from jumping because I could not hold the throttle steady enough.

For the kinds of driving I do, I figure the range between 50:1 and 57:1 is the low first sweet spot (33.3 inch dia tyres). I'm currently at 50:1 and it works very well for me. But I'm more of a rough terrain expedition trail type driver and not a serious rock crawler type.


With the Orion I'll get: 1st low 80:1, 2nd low 46:1, 3rd low (around 27:1), 1st high 21:1.

That's a BIG jump between low first and second. Unless you are doing some extreme rock crawling I'm going to guess that you won't be using low first a whole lot and low second will become your primary low gear.

Good luck with whatever you end up with!

Agreed. My new crawl ratio with the 5 speed is 39:1, and it's a little high. It helps that the engine has plenty of power. I had no problems last weekend on roads that could loosely be described as roads. Fairly difficult logging roads. But I know it'll suck in any kind of "extreme" rock crawling.

Personally, I'd rather have an 80:1 first, and just use 2nd more often. "Too have and not need, rather than need and not have."

I think my plan, as funds allow, would be to change the LT230 High range ratio to 1.0, then drop the axle gearing. Say going to a 4.12 would get me nearly the same high range ratio overall, but now first gear low would give me 45:1. A little better...

But now that I look at the numbers... hardly seems worth it.

That was at 20 psi, not that low. I had to change one of the other wheels on the trail already because the rim got packed with dirt and it was leaking too. Yes, that's wood that is packed between the wheel and tire.

That's a 245/75/16. I'm not sure how wide the rims are, I think 7 or 8"? It's just a factory alloy. I agree that I think narrower rims would help, but I haven't seen narrower rims that would fit the truck. It probably needs a 6".

3 peoples worth of sleeping bags, tent with vestibule, chairs, fold up sink thing, cots, tent foot print, hammock...a lot of stuff.

How's the wind resistance? I can understand how space is at a premium when camping. Anything more than 3ppl and a dog for 3-4nightsand I can't carry anymore in the cabin.

-Sam

Good question. Its not that bad actually as I build up to it. If I hung it up there by itself, it would be noticeable. I go small to big kind of ramping up to the box itself. Its a military surplus Zero Manufacturing plastic box (41x 33x 24). Strong latches, weather proof with seals and pressure valve. I took a couple trips and by the time I got all of my and my friends crap inside the truck, I felt like I was on an episode of Hoarders: Mobile Edition. I bought this box and two smaller (20x20x11 and 18x18x14) Hardiggs from a military surplus guy for $180 all in great condition and the smaller ones WITH foam. The box doesnt permanently live on the truck so its not too detrimental. I took a measurement (9.5 feet tall) so I know my clearances and I love the box. I adhere to my dads military view of packing. Through it all in one place and when you get where you are going, dump it out and set up. I now have three military aluminum cots, Big House 4 with vestibule, three sleeping bags, folding sink thingie, three nice aluminum frame chairs, blankets, tarp and anything else in one, easily accessible spot. Get home, push the box off the roof onto the lawn and carry it inside until the next trip.


Holy cow that box is HUGE! You'd get better milage if you just pulled a small off-road trailer.

I dont have a place to keep a trailer and this box fits in the spare bedroom of my apartment perfectly. For me, the drop in a mile or two, that really is all it is, is worth the elbow room inside the truck. I have two Pelicans inside with recovery gear, a tool suitcase, the fridge and an air tank in the rear cargo area. The small section of the rear seat is gone so that there is room for duffel bags/ hiking bags and easy access to them through the door and then get three people in there and there just isnt a whole lot of space left.

Thanks. The rack is a Brownchurch. The feet were set up for a 90, so I moved the rear feet just a bit to clear the alpine window. Really didn't need to, but didn't like the look of the legs in front of the window.

Roundabouts were taken slow and carefully. TBH the V8 Auto in the RRC had the power available but there were other complications. As is always the case ;) But it's nice to know the RR could manage it :)

I've seen this D2 and actually there is not too much plastic on it other than the stock fender flares, side mirrors, door strips, rear bumper and perhaps the lens cover on the PIAA lights.

The rock sliders, QT diff guard, Safety Devices roof rack and ARB front bumper are steel. And the limb risers and Southdown snorkel are stainless steel.

This is my most recent rig on a trip to Caprock Canyons Texas. It's a 1991 Range Rover Classic and so far my only modifications are the OME suspension and BFG M/T 235/85 tires. It's also got a Herculiner interior and two Pelican cases to carry the spares, tools and recovery gear. That leaves lots of room for fun add-ons!

Patrick- I'm loving the MOOSEJAW decal on the window there. The 110 is great too. You should send MJ that image b/c they'll post it in the photo gallery.. I lost track of how many times people come up to me and ask if I'm from Moosejaw Canada- while wearing one of the MJ T-shirts... I love their humorous philosophy by selling gear...

What did you break?

-Sam

Blew a rear wheel seal while out there. Got home and finally used all the parts I had squirreled away in the garage. New bearings, both seals, gaskets, the disc and Ferrodo pad kit from AB and my Ashcrofts rear shafts. Problem is that the AB kit uses slightly thicker than stock rear discs and slightly thicker than stock rear pads. The result was a wheel that will turn by hand but drag. At a light, I noticed smoke pouring out of the rear wheel. Pulled over and it was coming from a smoking disc and pads. Didnt want to drive it and wreck the bearings or seals with the heat so I used my roadside for the first time in 12 years of daily driving British cars. Replaced with different, thinner pads and all is well now.

Thanks. I have a Int'l 2.8L TGV re-power, OMEs, ARB w/Warn 6K. Had Verdones redo the interior (marine vinyl).

I think underbody armor might be next on the list. Really looking to get around the AZ Rover crew and see what some of the recomendations are.

The clear windows are a bit of a pain as you know in the summer, but since it is the original tint, I have to move it up on the list to get replaced.

How you like the 2.8L? Man, I would have loved to have gotten one of those instead of the 300Tdi, but the cost was a little much. Probably ended up spending the same for the 300Tdi once I started getting all the parts to install it.

I will second that advice for anyone else reading, fantastic blades from which I've had similar performance.

I have streaks because I haven't had a washer fluid reservoir for the last 6 months. I pulled it out to trim the bumper, not realizing I had the secondary air system blocking the only other place to put it. I still haven't gotten around to figuring out a work-around yet... :(

A snow run sounds good!

I fill it by putting it on the ground and pouring in the fluid.. the lines have plenty of slack to allow this.

I won't lie, it wasn't the cheapest way to do it, but I love how it sounds and drives. I'm single and was deployed at the time, so I was able to stash away a chunk of change.

The plus was it was a brand new engine and it allows me to keep my automatic (I drive manuals like a sports car :smiley_drive:). I had the transmission rebuilt and the transfer case re-geared for the bigger tires. bigger after-market radiator added as well. I'll get off my butt and get the pics of the interior posted. I was really impressed how it turned out (funded by my second deployment).

Unfinished? Well, it has a paint which I would descripe as silver-gray-metalic that looks very close to aluminium.

Seems that the black safari version is more common, but I didnt like the black (to strong) and the rails around the rack would bring any benefit for my kind of use - only drawbacks

Ah, I thought it was raw aluminum. I think black is the only advertised option by US Distributors. I haven't seen any with side rails at all. Is it kind of like a hannibal rack?
