    Bone Machine

    Ian Hitchen’s Land Rover looks tough, but it’s not what you’d call pretty. These days, though, it’s a lot nicer than it used to be. That’s because it spent some time in the hands of someone who collected dog bones – meaning that when it came to be sold on,...

    Pull The Other One

    Paul Rose likes nothing more than a good winch recovery. The only problem was that the Suzuki SJ he used to own was so light, he tended to drag himself forward rather than pulling the other guy out.

    Evolution, Not Revolution

    Land Rover’s motto used to be ‘evolution not revolution.’ Jamie Kelly’s own Landy has followed that path to where it is today, through several body shapes, any number of technical specs… and countless broken halfshafts. If he was doing it all over again, might he be bolder with the big...

    Flesh and Blood

    Look at Andy Jackson’s Land Rover from above, and the first thing you’ll see is a large expanse of female flesh. When it comes to the kind of body that’s held on by nuts and bolts, though, it’s a truck that’s been bloodied by the passage of time – but...

    Trayback To The Future

    Jason Farr’s 90 had already spent many years as a mildly modified green laner before its first challenge competition. But when the bug bit, it bit hard. Enter stage left Martin Lewis, builder of one of the UK’s first traybacks – which provided all the inspiration Jason needed for the...

    The Long Story

    Dan Hickling’s Land Rover 90 is still a Land Rover 90. But it’s a Land Rover 90 with a 100-inch wheelbase. That apart, its resemblance to the vehicle it once was is, well, pretty much zero...

    True Colours

    When Brian ‘Scotty’ McIvor built his 90 from scratch, he painted it grey with a grey roll cage. Don’t be fooled, though. Because when you get underneath it, this Land Rover is very colourful indeed.

    Lumbering Around

    Simon Cooper bought a nifty 90 with an interesting past, and treated it to a seemingly endless series of collisions with trees. But he’s not barking mad, or a complete sap, so he quickly twigged that he needed to branch out into the world of body protection.

    Twisted Firestarter

    Flame-throwing, car-crushing, CCTV-recording… it’s all in a day’s work for Sam Morley’s hybrid Land Rover. Go beyond the thrills and spills, though, and you’ll find a brilliantly sorted ex-military truck that adds off-road basics like an enormously flexible suspension set-up to fun stuff like a fire-spitting exhaust.

    Hit For Six

    When Tony Vincent bought the Discovery he’d always wanted, it didn’t take him long to start turning it into… the Discover he’d always wanted.  Cue six inches of lift – with the same again still to come.

    Play Station

    If you think the Land Rover Tomb Raider is rather lacking in the hardcore off-roading stakes, you’ve obviously never met Ian Woolley. His example of the marque is one of the most tricked-up Solihull vehicles you’re ever likely to see.

    Toy Wonder

    We sometimes get accused of featuring too many ‘loadsamoney 90s’ in this magazine, but you don’t need to spend masses of money to turn Land Rover’s finest into a seriously capable off-roader. Just a few well chosen mods, in fact, and you’ll have a top toy that’s ready to take...

    Giant Green Jollies

    When Tony Whitelock bought his Range Rover, it was just another bobtail. A few short months later, it’s gone a long way up in the world – and is set to be one of the first superstars of the British rock-crawling scene.

    The One And Only

    Alan Davis says his Land Rover Series IIA is the only 4x4 he’ll ever own. He bought it seven years ago, and in the intervening period has turned it into a hardcore mud warrior. It’ll go anywhere, he reckons – but it will never stop being a work in progress…

    Banking On Success

    Mike Bullivant thinks the Land Rover Discovery is one of the best off-road vehicles going, provided you invest wisely in making the most of its potential. And he should know all about the importance of judicious investment, what with being a bank manager…

    Rake's Progress

    When Jim Malkin decided to base his latest extreme off-roader on a Land Rover 90, he was eager to make it stand out from the crowd. By the time you’ve read this far, you’ll already have seen that he succeeded.
