Experience with Urban Land Cruisers?

I recently started a restoration of a ROW D90 and have been making my way through the various parts distributors and was wondering what the general consensus was on Urban Land Cruisers?

They are fantastic. Did a headgasket on my friends TDI and got it running like a top. Was just there last week and they have TDI powertrains everywhere and more work than they can handle. They can only put a fraction of what they have on their website due to resourcing.

Thanks guys....

You can imagine what my opinion is!

Truth is we have been struggling to keep up. It has been a tough road the past year as we have doubled in size and more than tripled in volume.


We had a few... maybe more than a few... issues in the not too distant past. We are pushing hard to get past those issues and move forward. We have experienced a solid outpouring of support and critique, especially from those folks who we are currently working with. The patience is greatly appreciated.

There is a new staff in place and we seem to be getting a handle on things, I know we sure are trying!

The biggest issue overall has been ability to supply both work and parts in a timely fashion. The issue has been me personally. I have been the choke point on all this crap. Our new staff is being trained and encouraged to keep in my office and let them do their jobs!

If you have and a negative experience I take responsibility for that. Pls contact me and let me try to resolve it.

We really appreciate the support and feedback both good and bad. Our plan is solid, the quality of our work is great. As we get our infrastructure to equal our size we will get more and more smoothed out.

I met with David several weeks ago to take a look at his place and look in on a long standing project.

Davis is a quality and supremely competent guy with a big heart. As happens with many small business owners, he has learned some hard lessons from taking on too much work and being spread too thin. I believe he is in a great spot and is in the process of sorting this things to have a great organization.

His organization is not perfect, but I am comfortable saying that if he accepts your project, he will do a great job.

Just my $0.02

They have been good to me and I will continue to buy stuff from them. David's great. Sometimes he is slow to respond due to being busy, but he always comes through in the end.

I agree with Kraig. David is working to get caught up with all the work he currently has in house. My build is coming along and he wants to make sure im happy with the final outcome. I will be posting photos of the project but many of his projects are on the ULC web site.

I visited Dave and took a look in on their operations while I was in Atlanta a couple of months ago. Let me tell you I have been to LR shops the worldwide ... Nene Overland, Foley's, Nakatenaga, Ex-tec, Entreq, Saluki Motorsports, Shumachers of Nairobi and even a shop that does Iranian Faux-fenders from Pakistan and one place in Bali that specializes in mud trucks. What I saw was a dedicated LR shop packed full of Defenders. Every bay was full of cars I couldn't get enough photos of. Their backlog is a sign that there are SO FEW Defender garages out there in the USA. I mean there is a real need for more shops as the cars come into the country. I like their dedication to rovers. I don't even know if I saw a Land Cruiser there! We need a master sticky that lists all of the garages all over the states. Say what you will but Dave's clearly is a big player in the South. Its not like the 100 ex-Mods sitting in his lawn doesn't give them some serious credibility.
