Sad, IMHO, but to the guy that would want it, he'd probably feel the same about my 90, so..

R.I.P. Quite comical with the window hoop larger diameter than the rear supports on the roll cage. Guessing 18 gauge as anything else would weigh the truck down for shopping at the mall. With any luck someday it will be restored to its former glory as shown in the before photos.

Whats wrong with this one? It is bobbed which is something that they have been doing to RRCs forever. The trials events are super muddy and very tight courses. Bob makes perfect sense to me and does not look like too much of a hack job.

Bobbed 2 door Range rover=good. Bobbed 4 door P38 Range Rover=wtf. And why keep the air dam and front bumper if the point (of bobbing) is to improve approach and departure angle? And why not add taller springs? Etc Etc...

Yeah, it is a little odd but how many 2 doors are left, do you think? P38s are so incredibly cheap you could screw with one and then throw it away and not really be out much. Air dam, I can see but I am also sure it would get ripped off. The springs, honestly, most of the trials trucks I have seen are not really lifted much at all. Just taller, knobby tires. Having watched some, the turns are so sharp and most times off camber, I really would not want a taller truck.

hate to say it but the paint is pretty cool. Ditch the roof lights though.

I believe there are a few of those here in NYC. I got to check one of them out at Land Rover Manhattan a while back. The paint is neat.

Just looks like a dark red? Maybe my monitor isn't calibrated?

Cool, that must be Range Rover's new "Play Doh" edition!

Actually, that's probably a "PlastiDip" sprayable vinyl paint
can probably be peeled off.

It's either a wrap or plastidip, both of which can be removed if it's too lipsticky for you
