Hey guys! I've been on here a while.. but since everyone else is updating their introduction.. I'll do it too.. I tend to lurk a bit more than post but wanted to say you guys have been very helpful with info. I would suggest to the new guys to check out the search feature on this site.. it rules. My favorite mod so far has been a AAA membership.. I highly reccomend one. Haven't had to use it.. but it does put me at ease that it is there. My D1 is as stock as they come.. Not really looking to mod it much.. at least not on the exterior.

I just found out that I won't be going to MAR this year.. which really stinks.. but at least I have the spring rally to look forward to

Anyway, Welcome new dudes! & thanks old dudes.

EDIT: I'm 34, Married. no kids, not yet. 3 cats & a dog.

Current: 1998 D1
Ex: 1992 RRC (long gone)

Well, I have been a member since December, almost a year, so I consider myself to be new.

Patrick Albaugh, 18...going to be 19 on November 12. Then going to Canada to try out my first bar that same weekend.

Had my 95' RRC LWB since December. Has come a long ass way from what it was, and I still am building it.

I go to school and the University of Northwestern Ohio. Going from my associate's in Automotive Technology, then I plan to work at a Land Rover dealership, possibly in CO.

And I am with Funrover (Aaron) on what he said. LMAO

I have to agree that young people owning Rovers is pretty cool.....I'm 36, married, dog and lucky to have found a small house for 8 million or whatever it cost out here in the overpriced west (CA).....

When they put in the dealership and I had to drive by it daily, I almost died....and I convinced the other half that the used RRC was better than a 8-20k motorcycle....

I would have had one sooner, but was after the Defender, but when I met a neighbor with a RRC and a forward control, I got turned onto a classic...which works well with wife, dog and soon to be baby.....Now if I can just get the sliders and roof top tent past the accountant, I will be happy.

And I guess I should expand.....88 RRC in Green with Truxis tires, Surco rack, stock brush guards, 2.25OME HD's and Bilstiens and 180k on the oriiginal engine / trans...previous owner set me up nice and solid.

If anyone has a tip for mounting a 2" recvr hitch between the frame rails so I can carry a hitch mount winch for front/back use, let me know.....

Man, have fun with those interco's. they're sick tires!! One thing though, rotate them as much as possible!! They will wear down extreamly fast, and they're too good of a tire to only last 15k(as in my case). Those tires will get you through just about anything with a locked center diff and good driving. Their sidewalls are probably the stongest I've ever encountered for a road tire also. Beat the hell out of them but show them the respect they deserve. Good luck!

My name is Russ, I live in Boston, MA which means there ain't no stinkin' place to go off-road anywhere near me, (if you know of something let me know), and I work in the marine industry. This is my first LR after having had major envy for many years. I ended up getting perhaps the least desireable disco out there: '03 Disco S. But if I told you what I paid for it you wouldn't blame me. Had it since the spring and no mods yet. It is by far the best vehicle I have ever owned.

Ready for some numbers...
I am turning 38 on the same day as my fourth wedding anniversary and the same day one of our two dogs (plus one cat, four ferrets and a dozen or so fish) will turn nine which will be two days before we leave for MAR for part of a two week vacation which is our first one in three years.

My name is Nic, I'm 22 and mechanical engineering student at the University of South Florida. I am currently VP of the USF Chapter of the Society of Automotive Engineers, we are ranked #2 in North America in Baja SAE and somewhere in the 50's in Formula SAE. I am also currently creating a USF 4x4 club that will be officially reconized by the university as a legitimate student organization.
I drive a 91 RRC Hunter Edition, with 2" OME HD, OME shocks, 2" RTE spacers and brake lines on ~33" Wrangler A/T's. Custom made the front bumper, brush guard and winch mount. Which is a Harbor Frieght special 8K lbs.
I grew up racing harescrambles, cross country dirtbike racing, and now drink too and party way too much. Just moved into a 3600 sqft house along the major river running through Tampa with 5 of my buddies, we've built it into our own private bar, bar, pooltable, megatouch gambling, jukebox, kegerator, electronic dart board, fooseball, and hot tub. Needless to say nothing very productive goes on here. But its college, so we don't have to be yet.

That's what I like to hear. You're alright in my book Nic .

HI all.....

Greeting from the Niagara region in Ontario. I just joined this cool forum, but I have been lurking for over a year now. I just wanted to say hi and that you all seem to be a great helpful bunch of people. Thanks for the hours of great reading.

When I bought my Disco (1999 Discovery II w/ace, winter package) almost a year ago, I was always extra careful driving it, being so worried something will break, or wear out 20 times faster than normal, as the general public makes LR's out to be time bombs with problems, expansive issues and headaches.

Spending some time reading these forums is the best thing any LR owner can do. Gaining trust in your LR, because now, you know how your truck works. (And knowing is half the battle! lol, nm)


Well, I bought this truck so I can do "TRUCK" stuff, and that's the plan for this hog. Hopefully my BFG mt's show up tomorrow! I'm dying to hit the trails. If anyone in the Hamilton/Niagara area wants to play in the mud.....

Seeya!

Dan
