Yes, I totally agree with some when they say 'It's your truck do what you want with it' ... It is, but Nick isn't the right person to take shots at that don't make sense, feeble attempts will bring nothing but laughter, and you'll be torn to shreds. And yes it is your truck, but it's when you go out wheeling and get stuck with a truck that just looks cool, it's those guys that are going to pull you out that are going to laugh. Seriously, check out that thread on the Bulletin Board on EE with BushViper, it's insanely funny and will teach you a lot.

Oh and Christine, try fully absorbing/understanding one language before you can claim to know another. And you think you're getting the 'hang' of this ? Well maybe this time you won't leave the forum with your tail between your legs, kind of like what a small child would do. And now I kick myself for ever sticking up for you. I think you need to take a good long hard look in the mirror. I'm not stressed, I'm always like this, and I like ME I'm from New Jersey and can rub some the wrong way sometimes, but hey... Just like most people, the Truth hurts. AND, you should have contacted me about your snorkel, I could have installed it no problem and told you that the shops down here are junk, In Tallahassee or Panama City (EdgewaterBeachResort.com is a client of mine so I go there occassionally) .. You will need to understand something about this truck is that it's unlike other trucks and before you let a shop butcher your D90 make sure they know the truck. But hey, what do I know... lol. Oh, and 'Fas Scata'. (Greek)

And MARTIN !!! No kidding, I call the ring, 'The Engine' ... I have been thinking the SAME EXACT THING, for about a year now... LOL. I'm going to wait on the TDI/2.8TGV and just get another D90 for the 'next' purchase. Oh yeah, you're in Ft Laud... You near 'Zimmerman & Partners' ? That's our new Fortune500 Daddy at work. Thanks for the sentiment & Congratulations to you as well...

Jesse, Thanks for the praise!

Cheers,

Nicholas Orros

Yeah I have read it, it is great............I think we need a collective tag team effort like that on this board, we could do it so that it would be fair of course; men vs. women.

From the way she (Christine) is talking I am not really sure that she is going to be out in the woods, or in the swamp lands of the Ocala? Christine what do you want to do in this truck? Is this going to be a project that enables you to better move through the mall parking lot or are you going to be doing some serious/moderate wheeling, or rock climbing?

Let that dictate what you do with the truck. If it were me, I might start by learning to work on the 90 first, before anything else takes place. I have a rave cd that I would be more than happy to give you. There are very few things that I can not fix on my truck, things like the tranny or use of the Testbook if needed.

I take the rover out every weekend, to learn and get expirience on how to handle
differant situations...
So far this has only been arround deep sand , mud lakes ect...
I would love to do some messing arround rocks, but there are none here whatsoever.

I was not sure if FLA had rocks or not?? I have a good friend Chris N who lives in Tallahassee. He frequents Panama City (to party of course), I know he would be more than happy to help you out if you ever need it. I chose to work on my own vehicles b/c there was no one that I really trusted (locally) to give me an honest answer in regards to diagnosis. I did take a course at a Vo-Tech not only in Engine Management but also welding. I will send you Chris's information via PM. Do what makes you happy with your truck.

Jen (DiscoJen) lives in Tampa, FLA I know she does all her own work too. Maybe we could get you guys hooked up.

I'm still waiting to see a pic of what RoverGirl wants her boring landie to look like so its not so boring looking. Tires are usually a good starting point for pavement pounder wannabes. Lots of stuff potentially comes out of that though, but its a good first thought.
Pics???

Nick you are feeling threated by me because I want to modify my Rover to satisfy my needs while your Rover will never satisfy your needs because it is the wrong color and it's not a soft top. <- means just kidding Nick no need to over react!


OK I'll do some searching and see what pops up about OEM and Rancho so as not to waste any of you snotty Rover owners time who really don't have anything better to do right now then surf the d-90 source! But if you would like to contribute something useful rather then cry about another post about modifying a stock D-90, most of my wheeling is done in sand, mud and water due to the lack of rocks in my region.


sorry if this is not an accurate representation but it's the best I could do on short notice

nice job Mike (peacekeeping with humor)!

rover , rock on! nearly all d90 owners enjoy the inherent uniqueness of the defender and make attempts to further this quality with their own personal mod's.



here are a couple pics to give you an idea of what your's'll look like w/ some suspension/tire mod's - likely your first move... best o luck and welcome to the club

how do you haul yours around? i was gonna go w/ a rear spare mount rack but i had a bad experience w/ an uninsured bastiche rear-ending me
