Ever get a wild hair and decide that three Land Rovers would clearly be a better decision than two?
Well please welcome Ruby! One of my dream cars! A semi-restored 1990 Range Rover classic. I first had the joy of driving her at the BC Overland rally in 2019 and decided that she really needed to come home to Colorado this year.
Her previous owner was a fan of the older classics did modifications that included backdated bumpers, side badges, and decals, as well as a replacement grille, headlights, foglights, leather hood straps, and sump guard and a good amount of interior work.
Ruby also is fitted with a Old Man Emu 2" lift and 16″ Rostyle wheels with BFG KM2's - 235/80
And now the fun part- she is fitted with a 2.5-liter 300tdi diesel inline-four with an Ashcroft R380 five-speed manual gearbox with a heavy duty rear bearing.
