  1. Ooo - we might get to see what it looks like now 😊 🤞
  2. Who was in court with JLR by the way ?
  3. I’ve been suggesting to my wife that one would be a good option when she changes her car.... the massive waiting list doesn’t help though....
  4. The shape is an interesting thing - those early Toyotas and the GWagen’s weren’t a million miles away in appearance - so I can’t see that Land Rover can own a slab sided box? Plus if the Jimny was 20% bigger that wouldn’t look amiss as an Ineos vehicle whilst keeping the look of a successor?
  5. Not to digress too much from Dave’s thread - but that’s interesting. My 80 has 4.3 diffs, series gearboxes, 6.5 instead of 6.00 tyres, and a tdi - and it feels lovely. You can drive it and build the torque really smoothly - It just needs a 5th gear. I tried it with a 3.54 diff and it was awful, really awful. Besides making the 4 speed box feel like a really inflexible 3 speed box with overdrive - it (what I called) lugged in the gears, made me cringe.
  6. Loads of good advice here - and definitely one step at a time. I put the 200 links up just so that you wouldn’t rule them out early on - they can still be found for reasonable money - and if you did find significant damage in yours it’s worth knowing they’re an option. Good luck !
  7. I put one in my 80, albeit with a 300 turbo and manifold. It’s a great engine.
  8. Might be worth a look if your local and quick? https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F184032226541 whilst this one is fair money and seems honest within good feedback for the seller too. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F123916278925
  9. Bigj - do a search you find more than one answer to all of those questions. lots of people have put them in different places - I’ve seen them go under a cubby box, though often that’s above the seatbox - but I don’t see any reason you couldn’t mount one under the panel with a big or bracketed. Fuel wise - another drop into the tank is the best solution, but getting at the tank puts people off. Next option is a kit you can get that works from the filler neck. You can also T into the return line - but a lot of folk aren’t keen on that because of the pressure in it and the lack of depth that line drops to in a tank, another option is a separate tank - the Chinese kits have brought cheap ones to the market. Mine is in with the battery and blows into the footwells.
  10. https://www.outsideonline.com/2401929/new-land-rover-defender#close quite a good review Telling quote at the beginning: The new Defender will, “transition from a specialist 4x4 to a luxury SUV,” says Nick Rodgers, the project’s chief engineer. “We can’t be held back by our heritage.”
  11. Sounds like you need a luxury SUV Tanuki! Land Rover make lots of those ! In fact they don’t make anything else ...
  12. Really sorry to hear that Ralph 😒 Is it worth considering a 1.2 transfer box? Do you tow?
  13. Will your fuel pump not bounce about like crazy like that? Or is it not just hanging ?
  14. I spent a bit of money on some directional vents - and I’m glad I did because they have proved robust (my daughter keeps kicking them!) and they feel and look a nice thing too. Pipework I didn’t buy branded - but did look for decent reviews. Silencers - I bought an intake and borrowed a genuine exhaust silencer, and strangely neither made any appreciable difference and I’ve left both off. I was surprised at that, having read on here what a positive effect they had. 🤷‍♂️ The one thing I bought cheap and regretted was the clips - they proved to be carp and I ended up buying again, and better quality.
  15. I thought the issue wasn’t modernisation - but was instead that they had elected to build a luxury SUV rather than a UV?
  16. Good grief. Will you try and twist it back or send it back?
