    New web page added for LR wheels

    Just t let people know that I have added a new web page/subject to my web site. The new page covers LR steel wheels, lug nuts, and studs. Hopefully people will find it helpful for this stuff to be in one location. I'm still missing some wheel offset numbers, any help would be appreciated...

    Western Rally

    I don't have the $$ to pay admission and drive there. Being retired & living below the poverty level creates limitations. At least I'll make the national Rally in Moab this year.

    Yes it is a defender door that went in just under a year ago. And a Defender drop down rear step. There are two reasons for the swap. 1. With the tail gate I was crawling in and backing out on my hands and knees. With the door and and drop down step I could walk in and out. 2. The lift gate...

    The wheels are genuine Land Rover wheels used on European spec Discovery I and Defender that did not have the alloys. The earlier US spec Discovery I had them as spare wheels. They are 16" wheels 7" bead to bead making them the widest genuine LR steel wheels available. The Wolf wheels are only...

    I have always had two tall cupboards, one on each side sitting up front right behind the seats. The cooker unit is at the rear on one side and a single jump seat is at the rear on the other side.

    Does the rep of "unreliable" still hold true?

    They seem stronger than the earlier versions, but harder to fix if something does break. During the 2017 National Land Rover Rally a LR4 broke an axle on a trail. It had to be towed out to a road, loaded onto a flat bed, and driven to the nearest dealer (Denver) so the dealer could replace the...

    1976 Land Rover Series III 109 build "Montoya"

    Very nice looking. When you mention the steering arm is in the way do you mean the shaft along the bottom just above the frame or the steering box/steering arm assembly? If you convert to power steering you end up with a straight shaft that goes between where the upper steering shaft currently...

    Educate me on this series 3...

    I guess a lot depends upon how good you are with wrenching, if someone is available to help move heavy stuff, how much spare time you have, and how much money you are willing to sink into the project. About $3000 should get you a galvanized SIII MoD frame with TDi engine mounts to your front...

    1976 Land Rover Series III 109 build "Montoya"

    Everything you mentioned you wanted to do with the truck, except possibly the last, can easily be done by a totally stock SIII. Before spending LOTS of money and time adding stuff to the truck. Put it in use and see how well it does for you. They are pretty capable in stock form without all the...

    1976 Land Rover Series III 109 build "Montoya"

    Parabolic springs by the nature of their design have greater side sway than semi elliptical leaf springs. This increases the dynamic centre of gravity movement both on curves and during off road travel. This increases the likelihood of the vehicle tipping over. You also want a roof rack which...

    Overland Expo: Cool Ride Contest

    He appears to be much better at it than I am. I just do two email lists and a half dozen forums. I'm beginning to see the advantage of being on social media, which I have pretty much ignored. Though a friend mentioned that he thought it was the dog vote and that I should have included a...

    Overland Expo: Cool Ride Contest

    First prize is a certificate for $500 worth of gear to be purchased from expo vendors on the last day of the expo. I'm not sure how a little gear would be used by Drs Without Borders. Other prizes are basically T-shirts and expo decals. Anyway I also have a truck in the contest, my 1960 Land...
