    Hello, So I think I might be able to get my hands on an LT85 (Santana) manual 5 speed transmission including matching transferbox, which was mated to a 3.5V8 (which is also included in the deal). In my car I have the same engine, but a 3 speed Torqueglide auto. Frankly I really dislike...

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    I've been looking around and from what I see, portals haven't been really available on wheeling P38s. Maybe I didn't search long enough but there doesn't seem to be anything prevelant so I got to thinking... Despite what Jeep fans(namely us Americans) think; when it comes to off-roading, the...

    General Chatter
    I usually think of Automobile Magazine as one that would not publish complete b.s., but I'm on the fence about the contents of this article and the images. The images are clearly "illustrations" but they don't say if they are in any way based on inside information. There is a lot more detail in...

    Has anyone here ever put Defender 90 springs on their RRC? I have the means to a set of low mileage Defender 90 (1995) springs, and was considering using them on my 1993 RRC.
