    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Hi my fellow RR owners 😁 Im currently restoring a 97' P38 4.0, tried out the low range and all i got was the usual beeping and it doesn't seem to be changing over. From what i know the transfer box will only change over below a certain speed. I tried it when the car was on a stand still. The...

    !!!HELP!!! Just did a head gasket and now if got these problems! Runs pretty smooth upon start up (besides one or two backfires) but then when you flip it into drive (or reverse) the engine sputters (likes it's dying) and backfires a bunch. When you accelerate, it backfires once or twice...

  11. P38 Devotion

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    It dawned on me, picking these up preowned was a great value versus the 03 and newer rigs. How many of us have defected or added BMW based Ranges? While I do like the 08 to 12 models, they aren't the same bargains at age 10 as the P38s were and still are. Would love the newer tech and...

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    The factory roof racks are fairly useless--you can't put a full platform rack on them without a bunch of shims and some drilling. SD are out there, but $1500 or so seems to be the going price. Voyager to. But Rhino, Front Runner, etc....none of them have shown any love for the P38 so I...
