  1. My Wolf 110 when I bought it


    It is currently looking like this


    My Wmik looks like this



    And my old 90 (Note the missing steering guard, I had just replaced the drop arm and was too lazy to put it back on at that point!!)


    dude this the same thiong that i am doing right now, but i have mine in a worse condition

    and i want to build it as a soft top, and the thing is it was rebuilt as a hard top when i got it.

    do you know where could i get the roll over bar and the things which keep the hood in place? second hand is okay too

  3. The axle pictured appears to be a flipped Dana type that has previously been shaved fot ground clearance when it was mounted the correct way up. The bolt on swivel housings are not LandRover items either. they are possibly off Russian GAZ or UAZ military trucks,not 469's but 2 tonners or there abouts.

    As previousely mentioned it would be far cheaper and easier to fit volvo or Unimog axles than to attempt to make your own portal assemblies.Another option that you may be able to locate easily in your part of the world is a version of the UAZ469 that uses internal pinion and ring gear type drop down reducton

    hubs.This design gives only about a 70mm lift but the diff is also very compact for a little more clearance.

    There is a thread in the Members Vehicles section on my own portal hub conversion using many series components, but with all the options available to you in Europe I wouldn't recommend that you seriousely consider attempting something similar.

    Maxidrive Engineering in Australia did make a batch of portal hubs to suit Land/RangeRovers, but they are no longer in business. The Agrover that was mentioned was unsuccessful, in that the portal hubs employed link chain and sprockets instead of spur gears. These portals had no ratio reduction and on the front axle they were fitted between the axle housing and the swivel,which aside from not reducing stress on the CV joints probably would have made the steering trackrod even more vulnerable to damage.


    yeah i know it was from a russian jeep, but i just used it as an example

  4. Hi!

    I am rebuilding my landy and thought about lifting it up. Than i remembered i saw something like hub reduction gears on a land rover in some competition in lithuania some years ago. it was a polish defender 90 and the parts looked like originally made in land rover factory.

    Is this true and where could i get these parts, or atleast can someone give me a part number.

    sorry for my bad english cuz i am from latvia. if you didnt understand what was the hub reduction gears that i meant ill attach some pictures.

  5. Hello!

    Wanted to ask you if you could help me with few questions. I have a LR defender soft top.I have got the canvas , but i havent got all the frames for it. the problem is that i am not from UK so i do not know how are they called, so could you help me identifying them, and could you give me the online shops where i could get these frames (or kits for them).
