It'll be getting the Cummins R2.8, and a whole host of non-LR parts:

38" tires on Dana axles. With Skyjacker suspension. Sounds like they are building a jeep with a Rover body

I like it better before it was reborn, it had a story to tell. Now the story is gone and it has to start all over.

That's what the numbnuts on Xtreme Offroad did. D90 body with jeep shit underneath. I think that was his last build before they replaced him.

I heard they put that back to stock and sold it. His builds were getting kind of crazy but it did have extreme in the show name. He has a new web show

What is worse is that was my old 90. That was a tough pill to swallow. Needless to say I stopped watching after they put it on the JK frame

I liked the whole idea until I heard the part about the axles. So yeah hardly even a Rover anymore. Just build a Jeep. They keep doing the same thing to a bunch of old SUVs and cool four by fours. The formula is tired and boring. It would have been cooler if they kept the original drivetrain minus the Cummins 2.8. Beefed-up everything that was there and proved that Rovers can be badass to. Instead they build yet another Jeep.

It's not a rover anymore and this is a rover forum. Interest will be lost.

Dude, nobody was ever going to tell that story, and the vehicle was two years away from useless scrap.

Cheers,
