Greetings members,
I've have been an avid diesel owner for quite sometimes. More so with with 7.3. (6) in total to be exact.
My current project is a 2003 E-350 4x4 conversion van.

I'm also in the process of buying a 2017 Range Rover td6 Diesel, which lead me to this site. I saw a gentleman here that posted his purchase.
I wanted to see how his vehicle have been.

Thank you,

Richard

Welcome to the site. I own my share of "questionable reliability" vehicles, including some complex Volkswagens and an Alfa Romeo, but you clearly have more conjones than I do. I love the specs of the Rover, but simply do not have the intestinal fortitude to buy one. It doesn't help that Range Rover pulled out of my state over a decade ago, meaning 2,200 miles to the nearest dealer..

I do share the opposite end of the spectrum; however, as I also have owned a 2003 E-350 7.3L for almost 20 years, painted in the obilgatory "free candy" white. Mine is largely stock, but it does have a Quadvan 4x4, a 46-gallon Transfer Flow tank, Roadmaster Active Suspension and an Agile Off-Road RIP. Mine is more conventional than yours with respect to the interior. Aside from the factory 4-captain chair seating, it is a standard passenger van, with seating for 14 rather than 15 due to the "captain chairs" . I ran e-track down the entire inside as it serves as a cargo van far more than a people hauler. I had it up the haul road

Keep us posted on the Land Rover. I love the specs on that car and I truly hope the execution works as well. I could find one in my garage yet one of these days. Make sure to watch the LR Time videos on YouTube. They are Land Rover TDV6 fanatics with entertaining/informative videos. A lot of their material is applicable to the Ford 3.0L engine as well.

north of Atigun Pass last month (our guests did not want to go all the way to Prudhoe Bay). Those things are absolute beasts and are as reliable as dirt. I run our roof top tent on it, or camp inside the back, depending on the situation.

Very nice ! That photos says it all.

One of these days....I'll get a chance to make it up there in the van. Cheers !
