The watts linkage on a discovery II is the limiting factor in rear axle articulation. I had my buddy remove it and weld in new brackets for the panhard rod. The panhard conversion is available through Ruffstuff in California. http://www.ruffstuffspecialties.com/catalog/PANKIT.html
New steering rods and adjustable panhard rod installed, much better.
PEL500110 being installed in the vehicle. I noticed an immediate difference in cooling. For the first time since I’ve owned the vehicle, the electric fans did not turn on at any stop signs or lights while idling.
Recently installed the Greg Davis Rear Bumper, it is an amazingly well built, stout, attractive rear bumper option for the Discovery 2. It offers the highest departure of any Discovery 2 rear bumper, while also protecting the rear quarter panels.
And after a day of off-roading with it yesterday I’m extremely happy with the modification. I didn’t get hung up once, and it did great at pushing little trees away from the rear quarters.
Swapped over to the summer tires for “better fuel mileage”. 255 85 R16 BF Goodrich Mud Terrain KM2s. Effectively 33.3″ tires with massive grip and a strong sidewall.
This is a new tire cover I created for the Rover market. It will be on my truck until someone steals it :).
