Keep the td5 , but if your selling it send it down here ,
we have a farmer / landrover garage next door , yours wants rechassis ,and a 🙄🙄td5 tune up ,
and he alters seat base ,and puts a smaller steering wheel on for the larger farmer drivers ,
two puma here ,and a highly tuned bowler spec ,
tuned td5 , much better 🤫
would like to put 335 bmw engine ,or old 300 series merc engine with mechanical pump in the old series 3 ,turboed up can get 300 ponys out of them
BMW N57 30d, the 8 speeder and a galv chassis, brake & spring kit . You will not need any more of a vehicle at all if LR 90's are your thing.

Looking good hilly.

I have just rebuilt my swivels as they were clicking and leaking, new steering Shaft, shockers all round, little cosmetic work, rust eater and full waxoyl. Even treated her to some new wheels and tyres that a mate had taken off his 15 plate to put some chavvy things on. Mot man reckons another 3-5 years and she will want a chassis.

Did some work for a Landover specialist a few years back and his advice if was to start swapping parts for new before you so the chassis.

So do the suspension, brakes, doors/hinges etc, then when you come to swap the chassis all the bits are new with new bolts that you can take off and bolt back on.

If you go straight for the chassis you soon realise that it's not worth bolting the old bits back on after fighting to get them off and the cost soon starts to spiral. Speeds the job up too if you need it back on the road in a hurry.

Sounds a bit irish to me. You will still be spending the money anyway. I’d budget it off the road for a month anyway to do everything, I will buy something else and retire mine when it’s chassis time but mine will have done 250k by then hopefully so I will have had my use and moneys worth out of them motor to retire it.

It was more the point that you plan to spend ,what, £4k to swap the chassis but whilst doing it it ends up costing £8k. But if you've already spent £4k over the previous 4 years then its isn't so much of a shock to the wallet. Spreading the cost out rather then one big hit. That was his findings from dealing with customers.
