Outfitting A Land Rover Discovery Series II For Off-Road
Hello. I'm Eric, a sales rep here at Atlantic British. Today we're going to talk about building up a Discovery 2 into an off road vehicle. They've gotten really affordable now. You can pick up a D2 for $3,500 to $5,000, put 3, 4, 5 thousand dollars into it and have a very good off road vehicle. This one we picked up a couple years ago. We've been driving it around, using it as a test mule. So now we're going to build it up into an off road truck. With Doug's help, we're going to put suspension, front and rear bumpers and then slowly build it up into a lifestyle truck. We'll have videos that will show Doug doing each process, and we'll post those as time goes on. This truck's in good shape. It's very straight for the year and we've had it for a few years as I've said. So stayed tuned and we'll have more information as time goes on.
Part Six (Extra 2): Installing Hi-Lift Jack Bracket To Baja Rack (BAJAHILBRK)
Hi I'm Doug, your tech support representative here at Atlantic British and welcome back to Project D2. And in this video we're going to show you the mounting brackets for the Baja Rack that we installed on an earlier video so we can put a Hi Jack on top of that, or actually the side of the rack. No these things can actually be invaluable if you are doing any rock climbing or hard area 4 wheeling because you can get yourself stuck. These will get you out. And it's nice to have one mounted on the side of the rack so you can have easy access to it. Now again, like I've said, we've all ready installed the jerry cans. You can refer back to that video. And we have more coming. So again, these brackets are very easy to install. Should only take several minutes. This particular kit all you need is a 9/16th wrench, a socket and ratchet and you can have them installed within 15, 20 minutes. And it's easy enough where one bracket is going to sit right up against the side of the rail. You have a back bracket and what's nice about it too is they've actually put a heavy foam insulator on both sides so that it doesn't scratch up your Baja rack. That just lays in place. We have 2 bolts that go through. We're going to tighten this one and then we have another bracket, identical to it, that mounts down the other end. And that one we're going to leave a little bit loose. And we're going to test fit the hi jack to it so that it lines up with the holes that are in the frame of the hi jack. We'll slide it into position. Lock it down. And essentially at that point you are done. So we're going to mount these up and then we're going to show you how these look when we're done. Alright, now essentially this is your finished product. You only had to install 4 bolts. We have this bracket here. We've got this bracket here and we've left this a little bit loose so that we can maneuver it so that it will line up with the holes. And then we test fit the hi jack to make sure that those line up and now we can just tighten 2 bolts on this end. And then what you're going to do to finish the job to hold it in place. You've got the 2 wing brackets, these are also foam lined so they don't scratch up your hi jack. And that's going to go there with a washer. And a wing nut. And we'll just run that on finger tight, but still get it tight enough where it's going to hold it in place and keep it from rattling around. And then as a safety precaution, put the pins on so god forbid the bolt should back off, the pin is going to keep you from losing your hi jack on the road. So essentially there you are. So when you're ready to add a hi lift onto your off road vehicle, just give a call to any of our knowledgeable salesmen at 1-800-533-2210. And thanks for watching.
