    Default My new project

    I sold the Disco Tdi300 1998 and brought a very nice Range Rover Hiline 1988 V8 FI manual.
    This is a project for more serious 4wd expeditions and trailer testing and promessing to be a very good choice.
    Justing Cooper fitted the Truetrac and axles that keith sent from USA and with another small repairs the vehicle drives like a dream. We fitted a front diff protector, 50mm rised springs and Delphi Carbon shocks. This week the Maxxis 235-85-16 will be fitted and the beast will be ready for more demanding tracks. A front Truetrac is on the list and the day that the V8 have enough a Izusu 3.9 turbo with 4 sp box will be the replacement.
    Thanks to Keith for so good axles and send me the Truetrac. I know that Justin will order more gear from you in the future and many more Landy owners which have my high recomendations for the quality of his services and products.
    Cheers

    Nice looking truck! Brown would not be my first choice of colour on a Rangie, but it looks very clean.

    cheers

    Thanks mate, it is not brown, it is like wine color Cabernet perhaps ?
    Like any new plain RR it will improve with the mods to come.

    It's that southern hemisphere light playing tricks on me! Cabernet is a much better colour than brown!

    cheers

    Oh Graham, always the Wino! Pray when shall we (Chucaro included ) take a glass or three on the grass under the bluffs in the The Junk?

    Indeed I think we need a wine tasting expedition.
