not exactly the best to be working outside 170 miles from home. Not that I haven't done it before

If you have a AAA premium members handy (and depending on your states package), have them show up with their card and tow it to the max range, call for another pickup and tow it the rest if you cant get it in one shot. I say depending on your package because here in Texas, my AAA towing package will do 200 miles one way but when I was in PA, it was only 100 miles.

Just a consideration. If you do that route though, don't forget to request a flat bed tower.

Isn't there a rover shop somewhere near Kittery? Tow it there, see if they can either do the job or loan you shop space.

I'd plan on taking the southern route if it were me -- hop across NY to 81, drop down to 10 and go across.

You could have it towed to Kittery. It's only 2.5 hours from Warren, ME...

Man, that would be the coolest relay....I could just see Jim's 110 on the evening news...

"A group of Rover enthusiasts relayed a doorless Land Rover Defender across the country using AAA's road side assistance service...."

If your coverage ends somewhere in NJ, I have 100 mile coverage that would possibly get you halfway PA.

Yep that would be BWO. Good guys and they do good work.

Jim are they sure it needs a new break MC? You said the front bearings were loose, loose front bearings will push back the break pads in the caliper requiring the breaks to be pumped a couple times to work.

I cant rightly say exactly what the problem with the MC is - I posted the exact info that ECR gave me.

Actually, this BWO angle is good - I'm a AAA plus member. According to mapquest, Kittery is 120 miles from Warren - so according to AAA's policy, I should get the 100 miles inclusive and then I could cover the expense for the last 20 miles.

Assuming Jesse can fit it in before Christmas, BWO could do the safety work and it would be much closer to Mike H anyway.

Thats great Jimmy, that will put it in Mike's yard.

I guess its just a matter of whether or not he'd rather have it sitting in his yard or at BWO.

I dont just want to dump on Mike to have to fix it up to the point its road-worthy - it all depends on what he wants to do.

Is it that they won't do it, or you don't want them to? Will they let Mike do it in their shop?

Jim I'll have to check with my parents. I don't work on the Defender at the Condo as it's kinda frowned apon, so all the work gets done at their place, but the driveway is big enough for at least 4 110s. Jimmy would you have to go up to ECR to get it brought back down via AAA? When does ECR want it out by?

LOL man all the neighbors will think I am a complete nut if they see another Doorless Rover sitting in the driveway not running.

I am in Columbus Ohio, and will donate my AAA towing miles and a warm floor to sleep on for the night.
Mike H. PM me if you want my number. Also have a great rover mechanic on call if there is something we can not handle.


Matt....

P.S. Hope you like Belgium Beer!!!

If I'm not mistaken, if you have premium AAA, it doesn't have to be your own vehicle. If you have premium membership and a vehicle that you (the member) are renting/borrowing/passenger of/stolen is broken down, you can use the roadside assistance service. So, plot out all the Defender owners/AAA members along your route and relay the Defender cross country...

Thats correct at least as I understand it. They dont ask what car you are registering it too. With the AAA and my insurance towing option I can get the Defender to pretty much any shop to fix it up.

Stripped down does look mean though

Not to hijack (Cause I think this is the best thread since Charlie Wenzel) but I don't think it's that the trucks are stripped down that makes them look mean, but the 50 cals they've added
