Don't know If you knew Benji or Mitch. They're both up there with their 90s they took back.

Cool, so there are a couple... I'm still toying with selling my truck, but I'm not trying hard.

Have any spare limitted slip diffs over there?

I have complete ARB setup with 4.11s and GBR axles sitting in a little gimpy trailer w/ RTE 3" springs, radius arms, and trailing links. Not sure if I'll ever put them on my truck or not. I'm keeping the 90 and fixing up my 110 csw but will probably end up selling the 90 in the States after I get a car with a/c. Mississippi will not be fun without it for my wife.

Make sure to hook up with the Pacific Coast Rover Club once you are settled. Great bunch.

Thanks Manimal, I'll do that.. This crowd looks like they are pretty far from Spokane though..

Matt if your ARBs/axles are in the states and you want to get rid f them let me know. I'm getting some nibbles on my mustang so I might be keeping the D90.

Word. You'll want the 90 out there more than likely. Taco sold his M3 almost immediately after getting there. Rear wheel drive just didn't cut it. Those bits will probably be for sale. I'm putting a lot of effort into my 110 at the moment. Just got new exmoor seats delivered and getting a check for tax free to take to Ashcroft for an LT85 and 1.003 t-case and will then install the 35slti... not to mention the parts that I already have waiting to put on it w/ lift and tires. I'd want to keep the ARB for the front, but the fact that it already is set up with 4.11s will be against what I'm trying to do with the gearing for the engine. The 90 will inevitably pay the ultimate sacrifice and be sold or traded to finance a Volvo wagon or a Mini Clubman for the wife.

I bought the wife a volvo V50 T5 AWD over in England, they ship home for a few bucks so you can send the LR on your military orders.. If the lockers become surplus let me know. I wasn't going to jump to 411s, but I will if the price is right :-)

I have another 4wd for Washington, 2000 Dodge Dakota... It tows my car trailer, the part-time home of the D90 when I need the parking space. The rest of the time my Mustang sits on it. I have way too many cars...

My dad has a ranch 2 hours south of Spoky. Never did see many Rovers in that neck of the woods growing up.

I can't wait to get back to the NW. I'm envious, though I'm partial to South/South Central Idaho. I'd still take Spokane any day of the week over where I am now... You must be going to Fairchild?

Yep, I'm going to Fairchild.. Many years ago I was stationed in Utah. Lots of 4 wheeling and mountain bike riding. I had a Zuk on 31s back then, seemed to go everywhere and did it on the cheap.

I'm in Spokane and rolling an 87 D90. Hit me up with a PM. Also, driving through Airway Heights, I ran into another guy in D90...a blue one. Guy was stationed at Fairchild too.

At least you're on the right side of the state......I'm growing tired of communal gardens and the stench of patchouli.

Congrats on the move. Spent many years up in the NW and always loved that area of Washington and Idaho.

Was it a RHD? That may have been Benji.
