    Poly Bushing Kit - Worth it?

    That will be a welcome refresh for your D1, especially if the bushings you're replacing are original. If that doesn't fix your death wobble then you might contemplate a swivel rebuild. There's plenty of good info here on that topic. Parts are not expensive and the job is not hard. It made a...

    Safety Devices roof rack help needed

    That's a good price. I just had my SD rack blasted and recoated for twice that. I'm very happy with the results, however.

    INEOS Grenadier

    Considering that Land Rover has built zero Discoveries since 2004 and companies are still making aftermarket equipment for those models, I wouldn't worry about it too much.

    INEOS Grenadier

    I think you're on the right track. I'm curious how the service & support will be. Not everyone is going to want to do their own maintenance.

    INEOS Grenadier

    It's definitely coming to the States. It will be available here about a year after it hits the European market. At least that was their plan the last time I spoke with their network development manager. All timelines have been pushed back a bit.

    2020 Defender

    Taste is subjective, otherwise Pontiac would never have sold a single Aztek. I happen to think the vehicle in the photos above is attractive. If it was on sale today it would be the only new car I would consider buying (although possibly also the forthcoming Defender 90). There are many...

    2020 Defender

    This article is a pretty good description of what Ineos is going for and has the photos many of us have been wanting to see. Diesel engine, solid axles, long list of simple, utilitarian features - sounds appealing to me. " The wheel arches are the shape they are to allow the maximum axle...

    2020 Defender

    The fascination stemmed from the UK market. Commercial vehicles are taxed at a different rate so you used to see a lot of these "hard top" models being driven by individuals who wanted the stripped-down version and didn't want to pay the higher registration costs of the County trim level. I...

    You are not traveling if you don't have a shovel.

    He withdrew from DiscoWeb. I don't expect we'll be hearing from him for a while, if ever. Cheers, Nick

    D1 Front Recovery Point Options - No Aftermarket Bumper

    I don't use the tow rings as a recovery point. I said I had considered using JATE rings. I have a factory brush guard that bolts to the frame and the time I needed a forward recovery I equalized the two points on that. Having been a mountaineering guide for a few years I'm intimately familiar...

    You are not traveling if you don't have a shovel.

    Peter, it's not a road trip, it's underlanding. Real underlanders use ____(insert name of whatever fancypants shovel people are into these days)_________

    D1 Front Recovery Point Options - No Aftermarket Bumper

    I've considered that option, but then when I try to envision it the mounting points for the JATE rings would be so far from the front of the truck that any recovery strap/winch cable would likely end up coming into contact with the air dam while under tension. It just looks like it would invite...

    Arc'teryx Thorium AR hoody

    Looks like I forgot to include the size in the original post, my apologies. It's a men's large. Age is 4 days. Arc'teryx just sent it to me as a warranty replacement for another jacket but in the meantime I picked up a Black Diamond parka that I want to keep instead.

    What coolant is best for my Disco

    So what are the alternatives? a) negligent owners don't replace the green coolant at the recommended interval, which leads to damage as you describe, or b) negligent owners leave Dexcool in their systems for a long time, which leads to damage. Either scenario is problematic. But if you are...

    2020 Defender

    Amen. The D2 has its advantages in certain areas, on-road handling and more interior room being two. Most of the changes don't seem like progress to me. There's a lot more complexity where there doesn't need to be, and it's not as well executed as it should have been. I'm happy with my D1...
