    Discovery 3 tdv6 build

    Been reading other build threads on LR3's so thought i would make up my own about the changes and mods of my own, plus the plans for the future for it. Brief history. I've wanted a Land Rover for years, my first meet with one was in 94 when i was on a family holiday, in the car park was a new...

    Would you ship it?

    Kicking about an idea and wondering what others would do. I've booked to take a career break out from work and life really, I'm heading to Australia for 1 year and will likely try to extend it to 2 years. I'm 28 so the working visa age bracket is beginning to draw to a close and it's coming...

    LR3 Underbody protection. i've bagged a bargain.

    Recently, i was shown a thread on a uk site of a guy stripping a lot of off road parts from his newly bought D4. The car in question was a Prospeed equipped car, the previous owner had bought everything on the catalog. 18 inch wheel package, rock and tree sliders, roof rack with flooring, and...

    Swing away carrier for LR3/4

    Looking to add to the car with a swing away carrier. However, it seems that unlike the Defender models, most parts for 3/4 models are a fortune and all the bits are in a cartel style price with each other. Front runner is £1025. Nakatanenga is £845. This is a dual model, it's made from stainless...

    A few months ago, i posted asking for roof light info, what would be best for my LR3.

    Long shot here with this. I have found a expo roof rack that's in great condition, no holes have been drilled etc. It's under 100 miles each way to collect so not terrible for distance. It however, comes with 0 of the fixings to the roof, none of them. Trying to find fixings is turning up...

    Johnson rods, good or bad?

    I asked on the "Show us your lr3/lr4 thread" back in February about Johnson rods. Lr's being Lr's however, wanted a cash sacrifice to the Gods of reliability so blew that idea out the water for a bit. Now, back to thinking about getting these rods for off roading, thanks to work, my mileage...

    LR3 Sliders info

    I bought a set of terrafirma rock and tree silders for my D3 recently. Fitted them last week and have noticed a few things on them that i'm not overly happy with. The front holes to bolt to the underside of the car don't line up properly. The sliders go the full length of the car, but under...
