Its amazing what Wipe New can do for an old Rangey. I used it on my hood where the clear was turning white. Let it dry then buffed it out. Its not perfect of course but looks good from 20 feet..I need to repaint the rims, fix a small paint spot on left lower wing, a corroded tailgate bottom and an engine rebuild...172K Miles,
I think I have a coolant leak on the drivers side head gasket near the firewall...stillhas plenty of pep and is fun to drive. My son wanted to use it to take his girl to homecoming..

Greetings from Cleveland. I present to thee.... "Her Majesty's Lawn Ornament" :mrgreen:

Actually, it's been pretty awesome so far. Pretty much stock, except for the Magnaflow exhaust, tint, and some fancier tires the PO had installed. I love this truck!

The Rangy crosses the Simpson Desert. 6,000 k round trip including 500 ks across dunes in low range at an average of 20km/hr. Note cheapo sand flag fabricated from electrical conduit and an old safety vest. The back of the car is 50% filled with fuel and water drums.

The last dune (of a purported 1,100, I lost count), 40 metres high and colloquially known as Big Red. The Rangy climbed it with ease, and for added excitement there was a busload of tourists generally milling around when I came over the top, they were nearly as surprised as I was. The lady is my friends wife.

And finally, if you break down there is always the satellite phone and the Simpson Desert Recovery Service. To get a sense of scale the tyres are well over a metre high. The bloke said the rate was $400/hr, and if you break down in the middle of the desert, that is 250 kms twice at 20 km/hr times $400/hr = way more than my car is worth.

Greetings from little old Ireland. Here?s mine. I may have posted it somewhere else in the forum but hey, we all like pics.. Mine?s a 2001 2.5DT in Java black. It?s the base model. I?ve had a lot of vehicles over the last 25+ years but this really has me smitten.

Rookie owner in Boise with a 1999 4.6 HSE, 150k on it -- apparently needs new ball joints, but the British Automotive guy in town says it's in pretty good shape! Gotta get new tires, sweating out the decision on what fits, since this thing rides like 2 inches below standard ride height for some reason. Probably will lift 2 inches, fix ball joints, switch to 16" wheels and buy new tires at the same time.

Another Colorado P38.
Black one is a 2000. 4.6 with 153k on it. Just sold that and purchased the 2002 Gold HSE.

In the process of moving the bumpers, sliders, Arnott Gen IIIs, TerraFirmas, etc over.

Hey all,

I have a 2001 Range Rover 30th Anniversary Edition (only 300 made). Pretty much stock besides the rack and the stickers. Springs instead of the preferred EAS. I have a Voyager Off-Road rack and a Scot Seat Direct jump seat in the back for extra passengers. We love him and have nicknamed him "Pulaksi" after the Big Burn (Fire of 1910) firefighter Ed Pulaski who saved a dozen men in a cave in Idaho.
