I haven't signed in since 2010 so it's been a while. The last 7 years, I haven't been very active taking the rover off road. After moving from Reno to San Antonio TX in 2009ish? I ran away from Texas screaming and landed in Las Vegas in 2011. But gas was expensive and even though my 04 DII was low miles, the drive shafts and other issues weighed on the back of my mind so I mostly left it parked in the garage and only took it out when I needed to do a Costco run. About 2 months ago, I was going through the buyback for my VW TDI and I bought a 2017 VW alltrack and I got the bug again. I have been taking that off road a lot so I am motivated to get the rover up and running. I got both the front and rear driveshafts rebuilt with serviceable u-joints and the shafts themselves sandblasted and painted, rear rotoflex replaced, and a new set of 255/55r18 BFG K02's, full fluid flush/replacement and I just need new rotors and pads and I'll be good to go.
I only have 56k miles on it so I don't have any major issues with it yet
So when I moved to Vegas, I noticed there wasn't much of a LR community. There was a LR club, but wasn't active. A lot of the off road clubs out here are aimed towards UTV's, rock crawlers, pre-runners and dune buggies so my fairly stock disco wouldn't fit in. There is a Southern California LR club, but after reaching out to them, I got no response. I just shot off an email to the AZ LR Club so we'll see. Also LRRForums seems to not have a ton of activity.
I might join back up again because I just need to be part of a group and there isn't much around me anyways for groups. I still have my club sticker on the back of the window
