Good Stuff:
  • Rock Rover Bumpers and Sliders
  • NEW Warn 9000 Winch
  • Nearly New BF Goodrich MT Tires
  • Arnott Gen 3 Air Springs
  • Custom 2" Suspension Lift (Overall 5" Lift in "Offroad" Mode)
  • ARB Onboard Air with Custom integrated EAS Supplementation to the stock compressor for faster filling of the bags.
  • EAS Valve Bypass & EAS Buddy (If something should go wrong with the EAS System, you can manually fill the bags with onboard air.)
  • Ashcroft Rear Air Locker
  • TerraFirma Shocks
  • Custom Roof Rack by Voyager Racks (This truck is featured in the product photos: https://voyagerracks.com/land-rover-range-rover-p38-off-road-challenge-roof-rack)
  • Front Sway Bar Disconnects
  • Warn Auxiliary Lights
  • Front and Rear Diff Guards
  • Custom MagnaFlow Exhaust
Over $15k total invested in upgrades.

Say what you want about EAS, nothing rides better On and Offroad than this setup. Several years and hours invested in creating an EAS System that truly works GREAT. But, of course, you can always scrap it for springs like everyone else if you want. ;-)

Rhino interior is in excellent condition, save for some stitching coming apart at the left edge seam of the drivers seat. Easily repairable by a good interior shop.

A truckload of spare parts included, including a programmed "spare" BeCM.

Bad Stuff:
  • Truck has been trail driven considerably, and has some exterior "rashes" to show for it.
  • It's a P38, so it has some "quirks":
    • Door locks will activate randomly when left unlocked. Don't leave your keys in it.
    • Climate control works, but blend-door motors have a mind of their own. No guarantee of AC as a result.
    • Rear hatch open button needs replaced. Sometimes will let you in, sometimes not.
    • Windshield washers do not work.

I'm the second owner since 2004.

187k miles.

$6000

The sticker on the jerrycan is a nice touch. I still look back and wonder how I survived that Primus show in 1993.

Cool! Haven’t see too many P38s made trail ready.
Every P38 ever made was trail-ready. Whether or not owners chose to use them for that purpose is a different question. This seller certainly enhanced the capabilities of his, but I've gone wheeling with bone stock P38s that managed difficult terrain surprisingly well.

“Enhanced“ is definitely a better way to describe the state of this P38. I haven’t seen many enhanced like this one. Very nice!

Nice looking p38. It is hard not to hear the Cash Register Chime on each line you have listed your upgrades.....serious money invested on this one.
Most of your quirks point to a bad BECM which is not a horrible swap if someone can find a matching set or a refurbished one.

Great looking truck!

So funny! And so P-38. I remember when these were new in the showroom, and all of these weird electrical problems were being reported. Here we are in 2020 and still nobody has figured out how to fix these electrical Gremlins.

Thanks!

I honestly think the random locking and the rear hatch issues are related. Some years back I replaced the driver door handle / lock for electrical issues and the self-locking/unlocking went away... for a while. It gradually came back, and got more frequent about the same time the rear hatch became unpredictable.

But yes, at the end of the day, P38s certainly have a personality. ;-)

It’s possible it could be that simple. Good thing I already have a programmed clone going with the truck! :)
