You mean to say: This one won't last through that storm in the background. Right?

Once again proof that the ability to do something isn't a reason to do it.

The worst part about it, it's not even the only one, there are others.

Could have saved a lot of effort and just bought a P38 - they can do that on their own, unpredictably.

Great city rover, perfect for the underground parking garages.

I would actually like to see pictures of how he did it and what he had to cut out. Imagine if you could stuff a 35" tire in like that.

Looks like the wheelbase is down close to 92.9" I would figure it got longer as it got lower?

not if the axle is higher than the radius arm mounts on the chassis, but I can't even tell if that's possible..

As he states, "Again it is not a finished project and needs lil mechanically things to be 100%." (Edited for humor)

Like an engine maybe? That is if he kept the axle in front unless he put IFS on it. Just think, you could service the front diff just by popping the bonnet.

This is what you're trying to do to your Disco, isn't it?

I actually think it would be kinda cool to have something similar to this as a cruiser, in addition to my daily driver Rover and trail Rover.
Terrible execution, though.
-What happened to the rear door handles?
-pull the roof rack rails
-do something about the holes left where the trim used to be.
-paint or trim or do something to the bumpers
-get rid of the bling wheels

I was just going to say.... "There's two of them?!" because there are photos of a green one that get posted every now and then.
