  5. Winches for series

    I have a working,but needs love, Pierce on my bench. It's barely 14k lbs, but you are welcome to it. It was a kind gift from a Dutchman on here, so it's yours if you want it. Gratis Worm drive and ideal for sedate but massive recovery Also got a Husky 8000 in bits in a box - but money will have to change hands as is owes me. Not much, but I need to pay the same Dutch man for what he paid for it...

  9. OME 764's - 200 Tdi Disco

    My cheap carp front springs have sagged to the point where the tyres are rubbing on the arches on full articulation. I've got 764's on the rear, with 18mm of spacers. I'm thinkig of going 764's on the front for a 1.5" lift and bettr weight carrying... Any comments/suggestions? I run a relatively lightweight winch bumper and a G10, I've swapped back to silly string, no silly bash plate. I run 245/75x16's, soon to be on standar disco rims to bring them back inside the arches more. RAW4x4 Shocks, SuperPro Bushes (not castor correction), standard arms....
  10. IVA and re-registration/road tax question (UK)

  11. Discovery series 1 3.9 v8 looking to buy

    Rust - if it's metal it will rust. Everywhere. Anything that moves, holds fluid, is a conduit for electricity, seals, cools, generates, pumps, compresses fluids or gas, etc will go wrong, often
  12. Adventure Overland anyone?

    Hell aye
  13. Adventure Overland anyone?

    I have a 'Stand' again. More of a social center than a stand; and not for teetotalers. Drop in if you want. It'll be under the Budget Overland banner
  14. Forum relay: Northwich Cheshire to Hampshire (back axle)

    What kind of time frame? I have to collect the V10 within a couple of months. It's in Chester. Reckon an axle would fit in the back
