Hello all. I purchased my first Land Rover yesterday. After a lot of searching, I found a very nice clean example. It is an S model, so no sunroofs. I did enough research to be pretty confident in pulling the trigger on it. I did a fly and drive to Virginia from Illinois to get it yesterday. Everything was as advertised, so I got it and started heading home. About 200 miles into my trip, the 3 amigos came on. It was at that moment that I truely felt like a Land Rover owner.

I plan on modding it out as an over landing rig for a family of 4. It should be an enjoyable project. Thanks in advance for questions that I will have during the build.

Andy

I ordered a crap load of stuff today. From Atlantic British, I ordered a baja roof rack, 5 terrafirma steel wheels, 2" terrafirma lift, shock towers, steering damper, rear bumper, cargo (dog) barrier. From RTE I ordered the rock sliders w/ round nerf bars and a front bumper. And I ordered a warn vr10-s from some company I have never heard of. I cannot wait to get some of this stuff in to get modding this beast.

Damn! Way to dive in! Better do your maintenance or you'll have a great looking driveway ornament! : )
That is so true! I have about a month before all my stuff will be here. I plan to use that time to freshen up all of the fluids and filters and give it a good going over. It is not my daily driver, so it will get pretty light use until I get it fully sorted. I do have an intermittent 3 amigos, but besides that it looking really good so far.

Try changing the fluid, it helped my “intermittent amigos”
