Discovery 2 Rear Panhard Conversion

Discovery 2 Rear Panhard Conversion

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

Discovery 2 180 degree Thermostat Upgrade

Discovery 2 180 degree Thermostat Upgrade

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.

Greg Davis Rear Bumper

Greg Davis Rear Bumper

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.
Cheers,
Zack

Limb Risers

Limb Risers

Recently installed limb risers on the DII, Vermont is hectic to drive through the woods with all the branches. The limb risers safely protect the windscreen from damage while retaining full visibility.
