Here is my new 2016 SCV6 that I will be converting into a full overland rig. I’ve had it 3 weeks and I have had it out off-roading every weekend since having it.

I have a question. Why doesn’t Land Rover supply an 18 inch wheel for the discovery LR since the LR2. Was their an issue?

I was going to put in the new Cummins 2.8 Repower diesel in the Santana, but came across a low mileage 300TDI with a full drivetrain for a great price. Will save me 10 to 15k over the Cummins install. Building up my axles first and then converting the Santana to 4 link custom suspension and coilovers. Body and frame have no rust coming from Spain and it's LHD. Will also be building a full rollcage/exoskeleton. Work on it starts next month.
Can’t wait to see what you do with the Santana build. Make sure you do a Build post under the Rigs thread. I’d love to see what you’re going to do on the conversion and the thread I mentioned is the go-to place to show your progress along the way.

2008 LR3. Bought it around 3 years ago with 50k on the clock. She's sitting at 97k currently. We've added a baja rack, front runner rear ladder and KO2's. Tactical Rovers sliders should be here this week.

We love this truck.

Love everywhere the LR3 has taken us in the past 10 year. Collected lots of mods and lights over the years 20150412_111141-1.jpg PhotoGrid_1473785466627.jpg 20180921_153820.jpg

Sometimes plastic parts fall off 20170607_155543.jpg IMG_1994.JPG , but its capability has never failed to impress me. IMG_2290.jpg 2018Wheeling (1).jpg

She is expensive to run ($0.60/mile LR3.jpg ), but worth it. My wife drives the carbon offset 20171122_073553.jpg

Cheers!

Both adjustable rods and IIdtool. I run stock height on the street with 275/65r18 duratracs. I Used the adj rods to zero out the EAS "calibrations" so the iidtool can go higher and lower before hitting an out-of-range eas faults. It's been a while but it think I gained almost a full inch of more lift by doing this.

Have a question or two
With the rods fitted and you press access hight, does the hight drop to the base OEM hight. I live in an apartment and the parkade is 6’6” and with my slimline rack I have a half inch at normal ride hight. So I get it down to access hight to drive through.

At max hight have you grounded it to get the extended hight when pressing the normal hight setting? If so does that give you another 2 inches as normal or do you get an error because it was already at the max.

Hey there - I'm out there in my 2017 Range Rover HSE... love these rigs. Had a 2015 Land Rover LR4 prior to this and my wife uses her 2018 Land Rover Discovery Sport on her construction sites.


Good to see newer rigs being used as designed, rather than mall crawlers. I wish there was more gear, like a real roof rack, brush guard, etc. Those things have to be custom fabbed, unlike the previous generations. But then again, Gerry McGovern is going after the Chelsea “tractor” crowd...

88F67BDC-1C75-4BED-9ECB-9CAA998EA058.jpeg Wow! When I started this thread 2 years ago I had now idea it would have such legs! I’ve dropped of the map for a while, Kids, work, marriage and a few shoulder surgeries (aging is awesome), but logged back in to do a little research on this little baby! She’s a rough little dirty gurl with a straight frame, strong engine and drive train. 185,000 on the odometer and tons of potential.

I am so impressed with how many rover lovers are still posting awesome pics of their rigs here. Big Smiles!

Lift rods just trick the vehicle to thinking it’s riding low. So to answer your first question, if you have lift rods on, them drop to access height; yes you brought it down from lifted to “normal” height. On my LR3 if I have the rods on, and I’m extended, and get payed up, i believe it will still automatically give me another inch to get off a rock.

I hope I’m accurate in my answer. What I do is keep my 2 1/2” lift rods in the glove box. Use them for weekends at play ( only takes 15 minutes to switch them out). Mostly because I’m short, and my daughter is short and we really enjoy having access height. Also I feel it handles better on pavement as engineered. Hope that helps.
