  • Projekt Grenadier Is a Go!
      While the New Defender has taken command of the headlines the past few weeks, some die-hard Land Rover enthusiasts are disappointed by it. For those people, there is still hope: The Ineos Grenadier, the project to create a basic British-built 4x4 from billionaire (and major Land Rover fan) Jim Ratcliffe.

1995 …..DGOHV

My Off-Road Land Rover

The first Land Rover I ever purchased was my 1995 Land Rover Discovery. I bought it used in 1997 to replace my four cylinder 1987 Isuzu Trooper.

I originally purchased it as a stripped down SUV which I could use as a daily driver back and forth to work, and to haul yard supplies etc. on weekends.

It is green in color and has tan cloth interior. I has no options except power windows, the upgraded stereo system with the CD changer and subwoofer and an aftermarket sun roof .

After my first Land Rover sponsered “Wheels Event” I became hooked on off-roading. Slowly but surely my truck became more and more modified. Now that I have my Freelander to use daily, the Disco became a play toy and a serious off-roading truck.

  • Rob:

    Hey Good Morning! I just wanted to share something of interest. I now own this rover! It has been my first rover and I have put some time into it and it has been my favorite off road vehicle yet (previous and multiple jeep owner in the past) I am in Austin and had sent a message to the president of Texas Rover’s who gave me your website. Hope all is well with your Freelander (not sure how old this posting is)
