New Range Rover Off Road Pics

My brother is thinking about picking up a used 05-07 Range Rover. We were both wondering what it could look like decked out for off road use. Does anybody have any pictures of the new bodystyle Range (L322 I believe) with a winch bumper, safari rack, rock sliders, bigger tires etc.? Anybody have any pictures of the truck in action off road? Just curious to see what the possibilities are with the the truck.

Thanks

There was an 03, in 03 that was built up by Outback Off Road in Chattanooga, TN. I think it was in a magazine. I was on a trail with it, a few years back, it had a winch bumper, sliders and skid-plates. It handled the trails pretty well, although we were not on anything extreme.

seems like a hefty price tag with too many gizmos to break for real offroading. I guess I would build one if I had more money than I needed. Maybe thats why no pics. Most people who drive those don't know what a series or defender is. One lady I talked to thought Range Rover was a different company than Land Rover.

They are going in the mid teens now..Less than most D90s. I agree probably alot of gizmos to break but i saw a fleet of highly modded Porsche Cayennes headed offroad so someone must be wheeling the new Rangies.

I thought Land Rover did a great job restyling the new Range Rover while keep what everyone loved about the RRC. Maybe he should use a classic Range Rover build as a template to mod his.

Here is one for example

I guess the mini backhoe is for digging out the RanBMWge Rover. Effin Germans took a great off road vehicle and made it into a powder puff. Just look at those stock wheels and tires...pure garbage.

If you put steel wheels with tall narrow mud tires on it, got rid of the monstrous plastic fascia and put a winch bumper up front to improve the approach angle and somehow were able to fit rock sliders, maybe it would be as good as a 93 Disco.

An L322 was along when I ran Mojave Road in May '05. It did fine on the one nasty V ditch that is one of the more rough sections and in the sand as well. Two ran Fins N' Things with us at the National Rally in '08. I saw no problems.

You're not going to run Upper 2 at Tellico or Poison Spider with it; everything else should be doable.

If he likes it I say go for it. He'll need a deep wallet, though.

I came across this while looking for some pics of the RR. I know it's not a Rover But I always liked Volvo.

Those G4 trucks are the exact look he would be going for. As far as off roading, I dont see us taking it to extreme places. Probably just trails in big bear when we're up there mtn biking.

I don't even know what to say about that volvo....

You need to spend a day on the trail with one. You'll be really impressed. I have seen V6 LR3's and bone stock MK3's walk right up stuff that disco's and previous RR's couldn't get up. They have pretty remarkable ground clearance all things considered, and can ford 27" of water from the factory. The combination of traction control and terrain response give it far better traction than previous LR models.

i would think an LR3 would work much better it has alot more adjustability in the air ride, it lifts up a few more inches so its got alot more ground clearence
