  1. Michelin 205R16

    Range Rover Classic
    I'm running 205/80/16 Falken Landair LA/AT tires on my Wolf wheels. They work well off road, and are comfortable on the pavement.

    I haven't done anything yet. Still weighing my options at this point. If/when I do, I'll make sure to include it in this thread.
  3. USB Charger for Cigar Lighter

    Range Rover Classic
    Now that is slick, tom! I may have to borrow that idea for mine. Did you 3D print that piece to replace the ashtray?

    Installed some 16x6.5" "Wolf" wheels. They're wearing 205/80/16 Falken Landair LA/AT skinny boiz, which were as close to the OEM Michelin XM+S 244s as I could find. The ride is good, and the off road performance has been great so far. Took it up my usual urban off road course in East LA. It...
  5. USB Charger for Cigar Lighter

    Range Rover Classic
    I recently installed this one in my 95 SoftDash: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07PLQMTB5/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o07_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I had to enlarge the stock opening my a couple MM. Just used a sharp knife to shave off some plastic. It has dual QC 3.0 quick chargers and a...
  6. 1995 LWB is offered at copart

    Smells like self promotion to me. User joined just to post this auction. Also, that thing is a total rustbucket. Good luck.

    For those of you with softdash classics, the lower fuse fascia below the steering wheel, glove box and center cubby cover from the Disco I/II are a direct fit. I'm in the process of swapping over to a black interior, and they're much easier to source than Aspen/25th Edition bits. Be warned that...

    Thanks, Bob! I've definitely learned quite a bit over the years. Having a copy of RAVE has certainly helped haha! Thanks! Yes, it's currently on OME 2" springs and TerraFirma Shocks. I replaced the shocks as they were on their last legs. No complaints so far with the Terra Firmas. The...

    That's a good idea! I was looking at adding DynaMat, then DynaPad on the floor. The factory foam (sponge) is definitely coming out. Can't believe they designed 'em that way. The only corrosion I've found on the truck is a small spot right under the driver's side heelpad.

    Finally had my transmission rebuilt by a reputable shop here in LA. On the way home from the shop, some old suspension bushes fell out, so I took the time to replace all of them. Next step is swapping out the beige carpet with black carpets from a 25th anniversary LWB. Managed to score a new...

  13. What did you do to your Classic today?

    Range Rover Classic
    Finally got the transmission and radiator fixed on my 95 LWB. On the drive home, the rear upper shock bushing turned to dust and vaporized. :lol: Also had the dreaded stuck tape in my factory radio. I removed the radio, faceplate and top cover and manually rotated the eject mechanism. AM/FM...
  14. Rear cargo area cover

    I had a through about trying to make some with a friend's vacuum forming table.
  15. CB radio Location on a soft dash?

    Range Rover Classic
    I've been pondering a similar idea with my SoftDash LWB. Mine never had a mobile phone, so I'm hesitant to drill a hole for and NMO mount. I drilled the trunk of my old TDI Jetta, but trunks are a dime a dozen. I mainly use mine for ham (KG7CDH) or public safety monitoring. In my old daily...
