D90 5.2 V8 - Not Mine

Came across this on ebay - very nice. At one point in its life it got nice upgrades from ECR.

Nice truck. I think it's convinced me I need a set of those tires for this winter. Michelin LTX I think?

Ebay description doesn't list any upgrades to driveshafts, axles, diffs, etc.

With that kind of power, wouldn't it be necessary?

eBay find looks awesome

Land Rover Defender Soft Top | eBay

I have no affiliation, but if I didn't already have one, I "think" I would be all over this. Haven't heard of this V-8 "conversion" before, it the real deal or what are the pitfalls? What do you think overall?

Independent does all the work on my D that I don't want to tackle. Know the owner and he's a great guy. Don't know about the truck.

"Fully reworked Engine management system allowing maximum performance with no increase in gas mileage"

LOL! Well, I guess I wouldn't really expect an increase in gas mileage, would you?

Yep. That was a nicely sorted truck and thinking most here saw it would be sold today. What is the back story with the repaint prior to the three visits to ECR (at unknown dates)?

What a difference a set of wheels makes.

That 90 looked so much better with the body colored steel wheels.
