very nice! I've heard about your build a little bit here and there. I'm thinking 35" might be a bit tall for a 300tdi. Maybe you might be fine with a 1.4 tcase, although a little slow off the line.

remarkably I drove this for a few weeks before we tore it down for the build, it actually and surprisingly ran really well...

35s, even 37s, with a tuned Tdi would be no problem with a 1.4 case and especially if paired with 4.10s in the diffs.

On another dream build note:

Except for the garage height issue

I have about 3 Dream Builds:

1 - trying to do this now. 110 - 3dr - soft top - OM617 - R380 - Toy E-locker / 30 spline rear and Toy - hi-pinion 30 spline in front. Fox Emulsions. Rockware front bumper - Warn winch that I have had forever. Goal is a simple and lighter build that can be used for local stuff with the family and longer off road trips.

2 - 5 door 110. GM/auto drivetrains. Exterior cage. 18" wheels - full leather interior. Basically a G-Wagen lux setup that my wife would love to drive.

3 - 100" - 4BT or some other burly diesel that can move bigger tires. I know "dream build" usually means unlimited budget but part of this dream would see if it could be done under $15k in parts. I was thinking a RHD 90 with rotted frame - swap with a good Disco 1 frame, Salisbury in the rear, bread truck engine. 37" tires. Home fabbed armor and cage.

Being little schooled in the finer parts of Rover-ese, I'll need a decoder on some of that! I'm sure I'll pick up on it all as I continue to read the threads. Thanks!

My dream: enough room to bring my rovers into the shop to actually maintain them, let alone renovate them....
