    2000 disco lifted locked and armed for battle.

    OK so the title sounds pretty bad@$$ and the truck is getting there not quite as cool as the title ...
    So this has been rehab not by choice but long story sort it has been given a second chance and went all out this time round. (THANKS DISCO MIKE)

    That looks bad ass. Just another mod from recent and expensive experience find a extended breather kit for your axles and tranny. Mine were only as high as the tires and sucked in some major water. Cheap add on about 20 to 60 bucks depending on the kit and you can put it on yourself.

    I have to anywase, the breathers oddly enough go all the way up in the engine bay up high. The rear is plugged and builds condensation in the 3rd member after a bit. I haven't looked yet but it should be a nipple, so I'm thinking some vinyl tubing and a clamp with a breather like we do on the desert trucks.

    Any suggestions for a kit?

    Ya buddy I know these suck. I haven't been able to find a kit in the USA and all of the others are in the UK and I am not sure on the quality and how fast it will come. If you have any ideas let me know. The tubing is 6mm outside diameter and 4mm inside diameter and nobody has any push fit connectors.

    I'll head to the medical supply store and or hose supplier, as long as there's enough to overlap ot should be fine then hook a small in breather filter on top of it in the engine bay.


    Psykokid that's too funny, the 4 motion rocks on the passats. We are getting a toy 4runner here in a few months to replace the pass at. Been a great car especially back in bois in the winter..

    OK added tactical rovers front bumper, flex disc elimination kit and driveshaft for rear, spacing front up 2" and adding a dII rear spring perch tonight for additional rear 1".

    Front sits lower than rear so 5" up front total and 4" rear, next is winch lights and bilsteins then rims and 34-35" tires then regear.

    Here's a pic from Holcomb creek.


    Eric from tactical rovers and i went left in the rocks to go over this, I'm lined up behind him
