Hi!


Thanks! These Pictures were taken in the Western Alps (The french/italian border). A very famous offroading Area in Europe.

There are many old smuggler paths and many old Forts of the time around 1880 and 1905.

These tracks are mostly at an altitude between 2000 and 3200 meters...

This Rollcage is a Standard Landrover / Safety Devices Rollcage for a 110 Hardtop.

some more?

Here we go:

Yes...it's some miles away...


But if you visit Europe / Southern France one day, we could make a little trip....

mike.

P.S.:

Rob, you asked me about this monument... Do you mean this Obelisk-type thing?

It's just there to mark the highest point of that pass (Col 'd Izoard). The altitude is on the top of it.

Chammy on the Nevada Trophy Course in August 2005. Second fastest time, on a one minute rough and tumble off-road rally circuit! Wicks had the best time, beating me by 2 seconds driving his brother's LWB RR. (Next NVTR is Dec 06.)

Here is my 1994 D-90 ST #938 just lounging in the shade after a bath. I am slowly adding/repairing/painting things to it when time and $$$ allow - not that those things coincide all that often.

Rhino lined
LR heavy duty springs with Bilsteins
ARB lockers front and rear w/ inflator kit
GBR heavy duty rear axles
Ashcroft crawler low range gears (nice!)
QT differential guards
Southdown fuel tank skid plate
Dual yellow top Optimas with isolator
BFG 265/75/R16 AT on stock alloy rims
SSR 285/75/R16 on Rover Acc 16x7 steel rims (not shown)
ARB winch bullbar w/steering skid plate installed just after picture taken
Badger II softop (not shown)
4 Hellas for top bar (not shown)

Dang you respond fast Mike! Yeah, installing the gears was a little bit of a challenge, but not as bad as some other tasks I've forced upon myself. I managed to do some modest offroading here in southern Illinois to check out the new gearing and was as pleased as I had hoped. I really hope to get out west next year where I used to do all my offroading so I can really take advantage of the new low range. It is just so great to be able to walk the truck over just about anything at lower speeds and RPMs. I have heard you really like your new gearing as well.

I have 72:1 gearing in my old Series II, and I used to really hack off a couple of my Jeep buddies, one of whom shoved a 401 V8 into his CJ, because they had a lot of trouble negotiating the steep, rocky terrain with their gearing despite their advantage in horsepower while I chugged over it all with relative ease. You could read their lips as they watched me cruise over the same trails that had given them fits while my under-powered engine was chugging at a shade above idle. Of course, the tables were turned when we were on the highway where my engine encouraged me to obey the 55 MPH speed limit even when there wasn't one.

Perhaps if time permits I'll get a chance to go out with some of you folks back east so you can show me how to negotiate that terrain. Since most of my work/fun up until recently has been out west checking out the geology and archeology, I have never before had the chance to explore the eastern trails.

Cool! Yeah I love the gears! They work out just right for me! Glad the install went good, did you get any pics along the way?

Yeah if you ever feel like venturing out this way let me know and we'll hit all the good trails!

PS, I love Series rigs, wish I had anough money and time for 2 rovers!

Funny, we tested some stuff like that a year ago! Although it was for military use they had a screen about 1" by 1" that displayed 640x640 res on the inside of a helmet visor. It was pretty cool!
