Ex Australian army FC 101 Landrover.
Heavy duty steel bull bar
Detriot soft locker in rear
ARB locker in front
Lpg with between chassis tank
80 amp altenator
Dual batteries
Three jerry can holders mounted out side body.
Currently working on refitting the standard water proof ignition system.
Engine driven air compressor and 12lt tank.
Huge air horn.
Spot lights
Fm and ufh cb radio
The above has been added.
The standard specs are.
Low compression 3.5 lt rover V8.........runs on poor fuel.
Running gear is similar to early range rover with permanet 4WD
Low reduction is about 78 to 1 in first gear.
Legal pay load is 1500 kg
Diff are Salsbury extra heavy duty with 5.5 ratios and very large drive axles like no other rover, as are the front CVs
110 lt fuel tank......it needs it!
10 inch ground clearence under diffs and the rest of the chassis and running gear is very high.
A transfer case driven winch is fitted with 6000lb pull and is self laying under chassis design with front or rear pulls and a pulley cable design to allow side ways pulls if required.
Body work is mostly alloy and gal steel and can be stripped down to a platform carrier type configeration.
A normal unladen weight is about 2000kg and can be reduced to1500kg quickly for helicopter lifting.
Standard tyres are 900x 16 which I think is equal to 36 inch.
20 inch Unmog wheels fit on with little modification as the wheel arches are huge.
Dual circult drums all round with load sensor on rear and booster.
Axe pick and shovel holders fitted standard.
Transmission is removed in half an hour either through the top or bottom.
Low CofG and is near the middle of the vehicle.
Early production vehicles had a extra PTO for a power driven trailer of 1500 kg pay load.
Springs are parabolic and only two leafs per wheel.
Compact and small for its cargo area.
This vehicle is the easiest rover to work on despite its forward control design.
built in 1977 for British Army as a gun tractor.
Engine is fitted with large oil cooler.
Recovery and lifting points fitted as is a front pintle tow hook.
The bad points are
Only 2600 ever made
Heavy steering
No frills cabin
Sweat box in summer.
Spring rates reflect its 1500kg pay load
Regards Ron.

My current off roader is a 1997 series 1 Discovery, 3.9 V8 with 5 speed manual. I've had the car for about 18 months now and am slowly getting the required mods accomplished to complete the touring setup that I am after. The vehicle was purchased as a 1 owner at the end of 2005 with only 91000 k's on the clock. So far I have managed to up that to nearly 130000 k's with virtually no problems at all. I have performed all of the modifications to the vehicle myself (excluding the lpg setup) and have made all of the bolt on accessories apart from the roof rack which I managed to flog off my brother. Modifications and accessories so far include:

- Custom made bullbar with fog light cluster.
- Custom 52L long range fuel tank between chassis and sill panel RHS.
- Custom replacement 35L main fuel tank which sits between chassis and RH quarter panel, behind the wheel arch.
- 72L LPG system (twin tanks) to replace original fuel tank, cradle was modified for more precise fitment.
- Hayman Reese HD tow bar, modified to suit LPG system.
- 2" Raised Lovells coils all round.
- Polyair bags for rear end.
- Aluminium full length roof rack, modified to accept Quintrex Dory aluminium dinghy.

Mods/accessories in the pipeline:

- 52L stainless water tank for under LH sill panel.
- Custom side steps/sliders to suit sill tanks.
- Custom rear bar including twin wheel carrier.

Future mods/accessories:

- Extractors and 2.5" free flow exhaust.
- Uni filter foam air filter
- Extra long travel shocks with 30mm coil spacers and modified bumpstops.
- Dual pathway unichip to suit dual fuel
- Cooper STT's when the current tyres wear out.
- Rear drawer system
- Snorkel
- Dual battery system
- Electric winch

I would love to post pic and list all the goodies on D2 99 V8 except my only claim to fame is a set of 32 inch Cooper STT at the moment every thing else is either on the study floor in transit or waiting for the appointment to be fitted. Here they are any way as I need to be a part of things here, cant help my self The 100mm oversized spring from Dobinson haven’t arrived, due to come early next week, being painted I’m advised, the front ACE sway bar links bought from LR Direct in the UK to be used for the rear are sitting in my study along with extended ABS and Brake lines bought from Expedition Exchange in the US. The spring retainers from Equip are on their way. I’m waiting for the Cranked Watts Linkage, lower shock mounts and cross member spacers to arrive from Rovertym in the States, I haven’t bought the Bump stops or shocks yet as I want to measure the Droop and the bump stop to get the shocks right instead of having a second guess to what I need, but I will be buying Bilsteins from Quadrant Suspension in VIC Finally the D2 will be going in on the Wednesday 3rd October for the ARB lockers no shafts at this stage maybe perhaps a front barAny way not as fun as the others, there already there Cheers Hak
