Another major upgrade..... I installed a Mota-Lita leather steering wheel, Raptor Engineering metal dash binnacle, LED headlights from SP Panels and a KBX front grill and light surround kit. It took quite a bit of time cutting and trimming the grill to fit around my front winch since I have the non-AC winch bumper. I made it look pretty darn good though. You can barely tell it was cut and trimmed even looking closely.

A major handling upgrade..... a rear unlocking sway bar by X-Eng. What a bit of a kit. The Rover drives completely planted on the road and just unlock the hub and it disconnects for off road articulation. I also installed Terrafirma front caster correcting radius arms.

And now a set of Gwyn Lewis double walled caster corrected rear trailing arms. Along with the sway bar and new front radius arms I can hoestly say this Rover handles fantastically on the road!

I’m now running a Gwyn Lewis rear dislocation hook system and front Gwyn Lewis long travel turrrets with Terrafirma 8 stage adjustable shocks with +5 inch travel. I also installed Terrafirma +2 inch medium load springs all around.
I need to order the Terrafirma +5 inch shocks for the rear yet. I already have the Gwyn Lewis rear shock mounts sitting in the garage.

Thanks!

Man, projects, plural? I can’t imagine having more than one of these things to wrench on!

Let me know if you ever want to meet up. Do you have one of you Rovers here in FL?
I only have one and it's an 89 110 Euro from Italy. It stays in Duxbury Ma but I spend a lot of time in Amelia so I'll keep a look out - Would love to meet but it's always spur of the moment

Tech,
You have certainly chosen the right aftermarket kit, although I’d get rid of that winch and buy Red Winch…and better Discoverer STT Pro tyres will be a much better option…other than that you’ve got a truck almost as good as a Wolf XD ! LOL…
