Ever get a wild hair and decide that two leaky Land Rovers would clearly be a great idea?
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.
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.
