    Why would you need to deflate your tires on the way to the supermarket?

    Diesel engine options for classic Range Rover

    I drive a 300Tdi Defender, I have a larger intercooler and a variable geometry turbo and it does have decent power for what it is. Even with a roof rack packed with a spare wheel, oztent and loads of other stuff I could easily hit 80 on flat roads (horrible noise though, thank god for noise...

    Is that not just a direct maxtrax copy for the same price?

    Defender 110 SW Expedition Engine

    The amount of TD5's with head gasket issues is stupid. Plus the ECU oil migration issue. Plus the lack of low rpm torque. I realy consider it to be a stupid alternative to a 300Tdi. With the money involved in swapping the engine, you're just better off going through the 300Tdi. You can get good...

    Take a look at the Defender accessories that I am making - Feedback appreciated.

    Excellent. I think I'll send you a PM with some more of my thoughts, I don't really have the time, place or adequate know-how to start tackling a project like that, but I would be willing to part with some of my cash to get exactly what I want. I am kinda fussy... :D

    Take a look at the Defender accessories that I am making - Feedback appreciated.

    I think with that kind of fabrication skill you should really, really seriously look into making an "expedition dashboard" for older Defenders (especially my 1997 300Tdi 110... wink wink) because the stock one is just idiotic at best. I would love a robust, functional item to replace the stupid...

    Quality looks good to me. I like the aluminum grille for example since the stock plastic one goes to **** and looks tattered, but 440 bucks? I'd really need some sort of dual purpose for it... (but should still be aesthetically pleasing)

    Should I buy a defender 110?

    If you want one, get one. But realistically if you're way off the mark if you're looking for a comfortable cruiser. V8's have horrible MPG's and diesels (especially the 2.5NA ones you'd be forced to look at) are slow as hell. If you're OK with 55mph cruising and yelling to your passengers, go...

    Land Rover Discovery II -VS- Defender 90

    I'm pretty sure it was a scam. Registering a US vehicle in Europe is usually no problem. And V8 automatic 90's are really sought after because they are super rare. You mostly see custom conversions, but factory fresh ones retain their value and are more desireable. NAS ones were of the very few...

    Roof Tent Access Hatch

    I know I'm gonna sound a bit too judgemental, but isn't this just a very drastic but sort of half-assed solution...? I mean compared to a pop-top roof...

    LR Defender110 Specs Help!

    Slightly nitpicking here now, but the Defender does have a locking differential, in the transfercase. But that's just due to the full-time AWD system. None in axles.

    Rest Of the World spec Defenders did indeed have 300Tdi engines until 2006/2007. Normal production ended around '98, because the 300Tdi no longer met the new stricter Euro emission standards.

    200 Tdi Cold Weather Issue or Something More Sinister?

    I had some really similar symptons with a 300Tdi last winter. Temps were also around -4F. It started fine and ran normally for a mile or two, but then lost almost all power and would not idle, very poor starting and had to keep the accelerator floored to keep it running. One morning it did that...

    An expedition truck on portals...

    Nolden LED's. I've been eyeing them for a while now. They have definitely done poor marketing, since if you mention 7" LED headlights, everyone automatically thinks Truck-Lite and JW Speaker. Can't wait to see how you like them, since I've been tossing between the idea of JW Speakers or the...
