FAQs, Information and Archives

Land Rover FAQ (v3.3)

Edited (and for the most part written) by Dixon Kenner, the FAQ is full of information about Land Rovers (including Range Rovers, Discoveries, 101 FCs, and Defenders). The content includes what to look for when buying a used Series Land Rover, how to contact various clubs from around the world, parts vendors , A Register of VIN and limited edition pairs for NAS Defenders (110s, 90s and 90SWs), and serial numbers

Latest additions:

Alternative parts numbers Range Rovers (Most will work on Defenders and Discoveries of similar years). (5 July 1997)
We restructured the FAQ a bit and moved it. 6 or 7 Repair articles were added to the new Series section. (15 November)
Finding build and MoD records (12 August)
Series IIA Suffix letters (12 August)
Capstan Winches (2 July 1996)

3D Land RoverViewpoint now has a model of a SIII 88" Land Rover (lrover.obj.zip) by F. X. DeJesus on it's anonymous Ftp server . This is a 3D model for computer animations. (This is actually a model of my (Ben) Land Rover, so there are some differences--such as the rear bumper--from a stock SIII. One of my coworkers made the model just to make a video to tease me. I've now seen the video. It features dust, a good simulation of wheels following a rough road and oil drips. At the end my Rover is destroyed by a Shadow ship as featured on Babylon 5. My Land Rover gets cut in half and explodes. It isn't pretty
