  1. Roof racks - alternative to crossbars for OEM style rails?

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Hello, I have knockoff OEM style rails and crossbars and the rails look fine but the crossbars look too tall and flimsy for me. for those unfamiliar, the rails function like a giant T slot and the crossbar has the T shape that inserts into cutouts in the rails. I'm wondering if this is a...
  2. Differential & Transfer case Fluid Type (Alternative Fluids)

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Differential & Transfer case Fluid Type (Alternative Fluids) Hi all - I bit of context surrounding this post, I know we have several threads running around with this similar question. My only issue with those threads is that many of them side-shift or start to get clear as mud with...
  3. Alternative to p38 fogs.

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    My 95 is missing the fogs but has the wiring all intact. Anyone found some smaller led light bars that could be used in place, yet still powered by the fog switch/circuit?
  4. Is there a reasonable price alternative bulb for XZQ500100

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    The cheapest bulb I can find is $60 on eBay upwards to $100 there must be a led substitute for the XZQ500100 bulb that I don't have to sell my kidneys for.
  5. Alternative fog light switch options

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    So I picked up an extra OEM front fog light switch from another truck. I light the factory look and have solders LEDs In place of the normal incandescent lamps. I know that the normal fog lights only provide momentary power to the BECM for fog light operation. I know which wires in the nearby...
  6. '95 RRC Wiper Arm Caps - STC2866 - possible new alternative

    Range Rover Classic
    I'm surprised no one's posted about this before (or my search skills are lacking...), but given that I've been driving around the past two years with only one barely hanging on (the other disintegrated in my hand as I removed it), I shouldn't be that surprised. Last time I looked, NOS was...
  7. Portable Digital Hi-Res Players alternative connection

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    Hello all, There is AUX input in the cabin and seems like this is the only way to connect a portable digital player to Meridian audio system on the Range Rover Sport 2. Is there any other way of connection? Does anyone using such a kind of players? Or maybe it's just useless and good cable and...
  8. GEMS Alternative MAF sensor

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    I'm getting some strange volumetric flow rates on my MAF (datestamped 1996) and my backup MAF (history unknown- dunno why I keep it really). Both are cleaned, but are probably at the end of their lives so... Time to buy a replacement. The quandary is, obviously I'm not going to give LR £980...
  9. Alternative key that fits the P38 ignition?

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Might sound like an odd question, but does anybody know of a basic key for another vehicle (Land Rover or otherwise) that uses the same key blade, ie, that could be cut as a copy of my P38 key? Basic, as in without a remote built in. Not a flip key - just a normal fixed blade/handle affair. I...

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    I have a 2004 Ranger rover westminster, and I haven't needed to tow anything. That said, I saw that there's kids you can order online for like 200 to connect into fuse box and run to the outside etc, my question is, is there any quick way to buy something at local autozone to somehow get the...
  11. BTR9548 Plenum Filter alternative

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Anyone else having problems with this part? I replaced my old filter about 10 months ago and the new, genuine, replacement is already breaking up. Has anyone found a more robust and suitable replacement material? I was thinking of a fine mesh or tougher foam(if anything exists)
  12. New option for Roof Racks - Great alternative!

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    I didn't like the factory option for the roof rack. It was too expensive and changed the lines of the car. However, I needed a roof rack for my surfboard. Decided to go with the Sea Sucker. It holds the surfboard well. Can't leave on roof for more than a couple of days, unless you re-pump...
  13. Steering wheel Spoke covers replacement alternative *pics*

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Hey all, I did this project today, very pleased with the results. Like many others I had the rubber stuff peeling off my steering wheel spokes. I decided to peel it all off and buff the plastic with some plain old Maquires car polish. Check out the pics, kind of shiny piano black look, much...

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Dear Fellow Forum Members / P38 Owners, I am faced with having to replace the Break Accumulator Wabco STC2784 on my 1996 P3b GEMs 4.0 again. Because the part is so darn expensive (BA list $250) I did some internet research I found a post about the Wabco accumulator STC2784 on Chrysler TC by...
  15. ZF Gearbox / Transmission Oil. Alternative or equivalent

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    I came across this thread on a local South African forum regarding oil for the ZF transmissions. Specifically post #21. It is aimed at the Disco 3 but its the same gearbox as the L322, post 2005. http://www.4x4community.co.za/forum/showthread.php?p=2473374#post2473374 Unfortunately the poster...
  16. 1988 RRC intermitent speedo fix alternative

    Range Rover Classic
    I finally gave up trying to get my speedometer to behave, it has been a problem since last fall . Once in a while it will start bouncing up and down with no rhyme or reason. Done all that is advised without changing parts, then time came to acknowledge that I needed to replace it. Too pricey a...

    Range Rover Classic
    Hi guys – I've had an overheating problem since I've had my truck, so finding better ways to cool the sucker are very interesting to me.
