Re: JIMS BEAST
Thats Britsh engineering for you. The Land Rover is the true
off road jeep and wont be beaten. These japenese jeeps dont
get a look in against the Land Rovers. ;-)

Re: JIMS BEAST
Rob, who cares about horsepower? The Toyota would never
follow the Land Rover out in the hill, it just doesnt have
the grip. The Land Rovers diff locks are unbeatable in the
sticky spots. Also the Land Rover has enough torque to pull
a house down!!

Re: JIMS BEAST
You cant beat the V8 landy, it wud out pull any japanesse
heap of rusting steel and twisted aluminium. ive got a
series 3 v8. one year one of our JD's broke down in the
middle of collecting bales from the field, first the landy
pulled the JD back to the yard up a up a 1 in 4 hill for 3
miles then it pulled the jd's 40 foot artic trailer all day
with no problems, mind you it was a bit hair raising coming
back down the hill with no air or hydraulic line for the
brakes :-D

Re: JIMS BEAST
thanks u guys for backing me up!
i dunno wat that rob is on about knowone can beat the
typical landrover its just too good. I hav a few of them
and i hav a friend with a landcruiser 4.2 VX which is crap,
yes it is 200hp, and a 4.2 but when it came to pulling the
ifor williams trailer up a hill the automatic toyota
couldn't hack it. A job i have been doing for 30 years with
a landie couldnt be done by a toyota. I was dissapointed.
THE FRIEND REPLIED: AT LEAST IT STARTS BETTER THAN A
LANDIE! AND I SAID "YES IT DOES BUT IT IS DANGEROUS TO START
AN ENGINE WITHOUT LETTING THE OIL CIRCULATE PROPERLY!

Re: JIMS BEAST
Well im sorry i have to disagree, had a disco biggest pile
of crap ever. Couldnt pull the skin off rice pudding and as
for off road capability, useless, nothing beats the subaru.
Admitedly doesnt have the ground clearance of a land rover
but ive been up wet slippery hills in one ud probably not
even think of walking up let alone taking a land rover up
one. As for other vehicles like that the farm vehicle was a
90 series td5 and struggled to pull a flat bed with 2 round
bales of straw across a muddyish field and got stuck so
cocky neighbouring farmer had his isuzu comercial pull it
across with hate to say it no real problems. :-[

Re: JIMS BEAST
im very sorry to all of you pople who dont like landie cos u
are out numbered
they are so famous no other beats it
as for the izusu beating the landie
this is because the izusu has a 3.0 or a 3.1 litre heavier
engine and yes with less weight, no 4wd on and ru#bbish
tires
the izusu would win but it is proven that when a landrover
is put at 2nd gear and 2500 revs and the wheels are clamped
slowly the landie will produce up to 30% more torque
what im trying to say is if that test was on tarmack or
concrete the landie would win.

Why do the british army use them?
the americans use that hum vee thing wat i dunna no much
about but i no u need to putt 100 tonnes of fuel behind u to
get it to move!!!!
landie has more power, more reliability and is built to
last.
if an izusu went 50 in a bumpy field it is proven that the
dash would fall off cos it is so tacky.

Anyway unless u make the towbar urself it just isnt strong
enough, landie towbar is directly on the back of the
chassis, and the wheel is right below it
, i pulled an empty 2400 litre bowser home tonight, i got a
few looks but what other vehicle can take 500kg on the
towbar?
(except my 100hp 165 of course!

Re: JIMS BEAST
Well im sorry to hear you say isuzu is tacky, infact if you
look, land rover is the tackiest 4 by 4 by far its so cheap
looking, and the plastic interior isnt worth half the price
you pay for the heaps. As for the off road pulling thing
they actually had the same tyres, bf goodrich, and 500 kgs
on the towbar? there are lots of towbar manufacturers who
make them to limit and exceed that. As for the power, a
series 90 tdi againsed an isuzu theres no competition isuszu
would kill the 90 any time high or low range. i also hate to
tell you that the 90 had the diffs engaged and well as u
know isuzu only has limited slips but still got that trailer
going. infact also isuzu and subaru were playing with 4wd
systems before many car manufacturers knew what a car was so
they have perfected it, or near enough. Its not just down to
diffs but suspension settings weight distribution, power to
weight ratios, etc etc and im afraid isuzu wins.

Re: JIMS BEAST
As for the subaru and your v 8 who knows what kind of subaru
was it to be honest i didnt know they made a 1.6. but still
id be interested to know what model it was. But personally i
beleive they are some of the best off road vehicles ever
made they literally go anywhere, they lack ground clearance
but still......

Re: JIMS BEAST
IM VERY SORRY U FEEL THIS WAY, (YOU OBVIOUSLY ARNT ENGLISH).
i USED TO HAVE AN IZUSU A FEW YEARS BACK because i thaught
they were better all round. Was i wrong, the dash board is
made of a different type of plastic and has electric
windows? what crap is that electric windows?. unless u will
use it on the road this is a waaste of time, they dont stand
up to the needs on the farm today, three weeks after i got
it a 250kilo ram cramed into the side of it , £200 to mend
the electric window and the mess it made was bad, the thin
body waqs weak. Where as i have a 300 series tdi landie
with a galvanised chassis. The izusu was too weak the tires
were so expensive. But when it came to the pull the clutch
just wouldnt stand it , they are made to go faster than a
landie which means that it cant pull a thing

Re: JIMS BEAST
hi this isnt jim its on of jims mates aircon.
All japanese 4x4 are rubbish, no one can beat a british
landie. it is one of the most versitile veichles evermade. i
personally have one and i have many acessories for it,
yesterday i attached a miniture crane to the back, it help
me move a 17 tonne steel gurder down the road for a mile.
the chassis is made so good it helped it stay together, no
izzus/suburu cr*p could beat it. I over took a porche 911
turbo going 150mph down the M6 going in my super charged
landie. i bet no jap rubbish could do that!!!!
so if anyone says they can, come over to mine and i'll race
you on an abbandoned airfield. ;-)

Re: JIMS BEAST
Actually im afraid to say i am english and yes i have owned
a piece of sh@t land rover, discovery, the only thing i like
about it is the ride thats it everything else is cheasp and
very tacky. as for over taking a porche at 150 your talking
shit man. If you want a subaru to go at 150 mph or better
take a look at the imprezza wrx i dont have one but i know
that would rip the ass off that land rover any day of the
week no problems.
As for isuzu im saying what i saw and am not convinced that
land rovers are the almighty jeeps as it were like isaid an
isuszu made a 90 tdi look very pathetic and would prefer an
isuzu for everything, Japanese manufacturing is far more
technological and superior to any other manufacturer, not to
mention reliable. As for electric windows they come as an
option in the comercial vehichle and am not sure if they are
an option in the others or not but i agree no one need
electric windows in a farm vehichle.

Re: JIMS BEAST
IM sorry i just find it very hard to beleive that a land
rover will travel at over 150 mph i checked up with a couple
of friend who have souped up theirs quite a bit and they say
its bull....
As for the picture?? so what its not a major tip i doubt too
much was damaged maybe the mirror and glass if it hit a rock
but thats about it i emagine.

Re: JIMS BEAST
im very sorry i dont no who air con is?
i believe u in saying that not even the best landies can
get to 150.
all i no is that i have 4 landies (series 2a,3,and 2 90's)
i also think that landrover are better than suzuki and
suburu u also cant compare the impretza (crap car) to a
landie, try comparing it to a rs cosworth (fully british)
and say goodbye to the suburu. I hav a friend with a
cosworth, 350bhp, 0-60 in 5 sec and top of 170 give me a
standard suburu 4x4 as u compared the impretza to the landie
i compare the cossie to the suburu 1600 as it is a 1.6
hahahaha.
