Not maybe a truck thing, but I installed a winch on my dads kubota rtv last week. Here's a quick vid of us testing it.

Thinking about taking a look at this Discover this weekend.

http://seattle.craigslist.org/kit/cto/3514795015.html

The big concern is the "transmission" issue. Could be the Oxygen sensor, could be old fluid. If that's the case I will likely pull the trigger on it (assuming all others check out good) The other concern is the rear suspension leak. I am assuming air bags are leaking(waiting for more info from the seller) If that's the case I assume a lift would replace the airbags with springs, right? I was planning on a lift anyways so that's a no issue.

Thoughts from the Rover crowd?

Half doors are not going to help you with that. You drive a soft top vehicle, dude.

Even the full doors can EASILY have the locks punched right out. I have seen it done.

The only way you will even get a small degree of security in the wrangler is with Tuffy products, and even those aren't completely theft proof.

Also, he wants to put a catback on it and we were thinking Corsa. Do any of you lucky ****s have any experience with that system on the Raptor?

Don't worry about the rear suspension if youre lifting it. The trans issue could be a number of things. Just try and determine if its a motor hesitation or if the trans is slipping or something. Listen for really loud ticks with the motor. Its bound to have some oil leaking from either the oil cooler lines or the oil pan, wouldnt worry too much about that just kind of par for the course for these cars.

Look all around the heads for signs of external head gasket leakage, drive the piss out of it and make sure it doesnt overheat, inspect the coolant to make sure its clear. All the standard stuff. Looks solid though.

In all honest if he wants to do an exhaust i would have him drive it 5-10k miles first. I think you will be surprised at how loud the stock exhaust is once it is broken in. If after that he wants more tone i would say go for a Stainlessworks or similar header/exhaust. Or even just a set of long tube headers and a stock exhaust will get you some amazing sound and some extra power.

If he wants an intake i would suggest a volant intake with the donaldson powercore filter (100k mile filter, AMAZING filtration). Oh and a reflash, i have the 5star sct tune on mine and it really turns it into a beast (rolling burn outs at 20-30mph with god year MTR's)

Right on.

Seller got back to me, the leak is the left rear air bag and he is negotiable on the price Unfortunately he's only available tomorrow and I have a fence to repair Hopefully he still has it next weekend.

These things are dime a dozen. The used market for these are so poor that if he doesn't accept $1000, he could be sitting on the truck for another few months. I see so many of these at my local pick and pull, it's sad.

It's good if you are trying to restore one though, most of the ones I see in the yard doesn't even have body damage, prob engine or tranny failure that put them there.

A shame someone haven't made a kit to adapt these things to something like a Vortec 5.3 with 4L60E. It would give these beautiful trucks a new lease in life rather than the crusher. It's still one of my favorite designs.

For sure,

These are pretty common out here in the sub 3k range. This one just struck a chord as it is a bit newer than what is commonly for sale. If I don't buy it, I don't buy it. Wife Forester is still kicking around And a swap would be nice, but I would rather go diesel. Speaking of diesel, does anyone swap the EU 2.5 diesel into the US Disco's?
