    New Bronco

    For the price of a new anything I could totally redo my D1 mechanically and have money left over. As it is working fine with typical maintenance performed. Both Rovers still bring a smile when driving them although the Rangie is my fav.

    New Bronco

    True. Yet I’m looking at today. One reason the RRCs and D1s are gaining value is they still are functioning after 25 years or more. i’m not so sure that will be said with a new Defender or other LR vehicle after 25 years. Let alone the early Rovers are just better looking imho.

    And why newer models will depreciate quickly while the older models are raising in value.

    New Bronco

    Yep. The ‘94 D90 had BFG MTs standard. However LR changed to A/Ts on the ‘95 because people complained. Pretty sure the ‘97 D90 had A/Ts as well. The Classic Rangies and the D1s had some type of A/Ts. All had robust wheels for sure. Along the same lines, having an Oh Shit bar/handle on the...

    They do some stuff really well yet a compact tractor will do more over the long run.

    And the tires themselves.

    OME Steering Damper Upgrade

    Yep, ‘96 D1 currently total stock without one. The ‘94 Rangie has one installed. D1 has stock everything including tire size. RRC has ARB bumper with winch, lift, and 235/85 tires. Steering on D1 much lighter yet given all the weight on the RRC front the OME damper helps. Tire balance as well...

    Downsizing Tires

    Yep, agree doesn’t look weird at all. Maybe buy them and mount one. If you don’t like it, there are many LR rim options out there. Thinking though you’ll be ok. Now the question becomes what TIRE? 😂

    Downsizing Tires

    Good point. Some Audi folks run 235s on 8” rims. Possibly another option would be 245/75-16. These were std on 8” rims for Jeep Rubicons. Feel sure others will chime in as well.

    Downsizing Tires

    Yep, had 265/85 on the Rangie for awhile and switched back to the 235s. Just a great all round size imho.

    Preparing for the long road ahead

    How many miles on the Rover? How well do you maintain it? What are you considering a long road trip? Based on what has been mentioned possibly replace the parts most likely to fail which would leave you stranded before leaving.

    INEOS Grenadier

    Yes, yet, how obtrusive they are is my criteria. Telsa is probably the most yet it seems the direction is bigger is better. This one seems to be fairly small yet sufficient for navigation. Not having one in either of my Rovers is refreshing.

    INEOS Grenadier

    Land Rover made sure that the Defender was well tested and marketed it. Wonder what the testing regiment is? Or did I miss it?
