    When you said NC I immediately knew who you were talking about. I used to live in Wilmington and ran down to their shops once to meet the "Wilmington connection."

    If it's any consolation the Feds once famously helicoptered dudes in black suits in to the boat yards which are maybe 2 miles away from this location because they were not happy with the way that ships were being scrapped.

    Anyway ... Keep your hand on your wallet.

    DHS and Customs have been cracking down significantly on the Defenders that have been coming in lately, but Aaron's situation goes further than a couple of questionable trucks.

    Could be a wheel speed sensor(right front more than likely) or the shuttle valve sticking in the HCU. there are TIB's for both, both very common for 2002.

    I still haven't got all the way through this thread yet but here are the family's rovers:

    The white D90 was totalled (I won't say by whom) so my brother and I rebuilt it from the frame up. We found a used frame and had it galvanized. Of course we had to upgrade some of the suspension components while we were at it :) I learned to drive in it when I was 12. Still needs a few things but at least its back on the road. The white Disco is my daily in the winter and when I am not riding my XT500.

    Is this the same Dan that modifies panhard rods?

    Nice!! Hope they are working well for you. I am not making any right now, between my bike, a new baby, work, and school I don't have time for much else! I have thought about doing some one at a time and selling them as I finish them instead of in batches but probably not in the near future.

    Congrats on the new baby!!!

    I know how hard it is to juggle a family and our hobbies.

    Yeah I kinda put rovers and skiing on the back burner and decided that if I am going to have a hobby it will be bikes.

    Thanks for the replies.
    I took him in, hooked him and the fault codes were odd. Front Left Sensor, shuttle valve and two others, but the number of occurrences was zero.
    We erased / reset them and I went on my way.
    I did some brake tests on bitumen and dirt - back to normal
    I got the traction control to activate on some dirt - more than once

    This was 1 week ago and since then, no lights, nothing, all is normal

    just one of those things I suppose

    One of my favorite all time movies is "Sometimes a Great Notion". Early in the movie, one of the characters, a long-haired hippy type, climbs out of the back of a 109 - you can barely make him out here:

    I used to have a old brochure that showed all of the accessories that LR sold which were PTO-driven. It was amazing. I'll see if I can locate it.
