      Scott Brady of Overland Journal drives the Defender 420 miles across the Namibian desert. 10 minutes, but a well done video, and really shows how the truck behaves.

      1700+ lbs of payload, 300+ on the roof, 8000 lb towing, 11 1/2" of clearance.

          Sorry, Jeep Renegade. I can't keep track of all the shitty models Jeep puts out these days

                  I've often thought the Range Rover Classic would be a perfect truck if you could get rid of the electrical system and that damn injection system / engine management. Like - get a shell, gut it, and start over with a new 302 or Coyote or LS dropped in there.

                  With all the mods and swaps and stuff people are doing, I searched around and sure enough, people have been swapping in an LS motor - plenty of power, cleaner running, better mileage. And it's full circle GM since the Rover block is the Buick 215 from the 60s.

                  Plenty of room. It appears there are transfer case adapter plates out there.

                  Interesting how similar the basic RRC was to the original Bronco. I think the wheelbase is 100" and the Bronco was 92".

                    I love the original bare bones RR. Hose it out, very simple, manual trans, great design, a such a compliant, long travel suspension in contrast to the Bronco and Scout of the 70s.

                            Hell yeah!

                            Nice one!



                            I stopped at a local oil change place to look at this one. Sold new in CA, somehow made its way to MT, and was sitting out in the sun in a field. He said the paint had faded to almost chalk color. Interior and seats were very nice.

                              Any LR news out there? I hear crickets. What's the story on Loren's shorty?

                              We had a good experience recently at Mid-Atlantic Rovers in Columbia MD. Old ones, new ones, they know what they're doing. The guy said their record for a customer LR3 is 470,000 miles. My son asked, How many times was the engine out? He said the valve covers have never some off. He said if you keep the cooling system in good shape, and oil in it, that Jaguar V8 will go and go.

                                I’ve got a couple jobs in front of the 2a. Truck has been sitting a couple years but “ran when parked”. I have clutch hydraulics, new fuel system, starter push switch, battery sitting on the shelf ready to go on. The plan is to drive the 2a while I do some upgrades to my Scout.
