    Old Timers Unite

    Anyone still talk to Peter Sherman?? I met him once through Thom. I drove past his place today and saw a RRC, D1, and NAS 110 all just rotting away.... :cry:

    Old timer thread got me wondering, what Rover got you onto Discoweb?

    Bought a '98 D1 because I wanted something with 4WD. Daily drove it for a long time, then turned it into a trail truck. After that..... - '96 for parts - '96 from my brother that I daily drove - '95 as a project that never took off - '94 that I still have and am rebuilding

    Old Timers Unite

    I stopped daily driving a Rover (thank God), got busy with my kids sports, and went back to school. Last time I wheeled my D1 was 2017. Camped out of my Sequoia for 2wks in Colorado though in 2022. Maybe I'll get the D1 back on the road this year.......maybe.

    Gems 4.6 intake on a 3.9 CUX engine?

    Its been about 7 years since I did anything substantial with my Rover. I'm finally dusting off boxes of parts from a CUX engine I'm rebuilding. At some point I grabbed a 4.6 GEMS intake and front cover(I think that where the cover is from?). Is there any way a 4.6 GEMS intake could possibly...

    Am I really asking about tire sizes?

    You don’t need fender flares to fit 33/35’s if you’re careful and do some moderate trimming to the rear arches front and back. I ran 315/75/16 on stock alloys and 30mm(?) spacers. The tires tucked completely into the wheel wells when stuffed.

    Iphone equivalent apps; TorquePro and AlpineQuest

    I finally made the jump to an iPhone and of course none of my stuff works now. Used TorquePro and AlpineQuest for years, and now need to find alternatives. What is the collective using? Keep in mind what a cheap ass I am, so no subscription nonsense.

    RockAuto shipping??

    Haven't bought parts (brakes, oil filters, etc) for my non-Rover vehicles in a while. Hopped on and at one point all 5 items in my cart were supposedly shipping from different warehouses. WTF happened? When browsing parts they also don't tell you which parts ship from the same warehouse as...

    35s… talk to me

    You can do 35’s fairly cleanly with some modest trimming. You’ll have to limit up travel though. Maybe less if you have 4.5” of lift though. I went from 265/75 to 315/75’s and it was a pretty good jump in capability.

    Land Rover snow pics

    Nothing at the time. Looking back though it was an unfamiliar lake and I had very little knowledge of the ice conditions.
