Keep posting the updates C14, is this Classic coming to URE11?


.
The "plan" is to have it fully operational in time for URE, and finished by Uwharrie Safari next April. With appearances at local Cars and Coffee in Raleigh in between. As it sits now, I haven't done any more work to it since the day I bought it and replaced the fuel pump (with the exception of replacing the upper tailgate struts). Not only have I spent more time ordering parts than I have actually spent working on it, I've also spent more in the process than I paid for the truck itself!

Knocking out the cobwebs this evening. Glad to have a little time to work on it!

That's the worst part about building Disco's and RRC's, they're still not worth much after you've put thousands into them. I still miss having a Disco or RRC.

My experiences don't agree with that statement, but I guess it depends on how you define "worth much".

I always seem to do pretty well with my trucks. Plus, getting them sorted out is half the fun.

We had to get rid of our d2 after 12+ years in the family. Everyone was literally upset, really. Turned out we had microfractures in the block and it would have been over 7k to fix, all in. It really is a cool all around truck.

That's so true, emotional value far higher than true value. I'm just happy to have my D1 drivetrain in my truck.

Replace the battery in the seat ECU before it leaks and kills it, if it is not already dead.

I'm dying to make that progress, I must say two small kids make it tougher to crank out those famous all night work sessions. Tougher, but not impossible. Soon, I promise.

Special thanks to Doug in Maine!


But wait, there's more! Here's a hint.

nice. have the NRP version on mine and it makes a nice sound.

it was funny though as we passed the Italian police last week looking at vehicles going up this one pass, the policeman made a face at the Rangie and put his hands to his ears. Thought for sure we were getting pulled over.

thought you may like this pic. other side still has LIFT intact.

That reminds me



Today I located some mudflap brackets, from AZ

I forgot to mention I also bought an ARB bumper

very cool! I removed the front brackets as just another spot that eventually will leak water. Rear still on although the flaps have long been gone. Also like an ARB on a Rangie. I was in an accident where an old Caddy Eldorado cut in front of me as I was going 45mph. The Rangie went over the hood pushing the driver's wheel under the seat box and the ARB back to the headlight. After coming to a stop, my door still opened without a problem. They are stout.

Yep, I'm glad I still have a few...
I'm talking with a manufacturer about a carbon fiber/titanium reinforced hold/lift tab.

I mean, that's like 15,000 miles of on-road driving right there. Oh well, new filter is part of the tune up that will be happening soon.

look forward to hearing from you on the seat covers. my rear seats are perfect as always covered in the RR Waterproofs due to the Labs, yet, the driver's and somewhat on the passenger's seat the leather is worn. not too bad so debating to get the covers or have them redone.
