    Chevy wins another truck comparison test

    The new generation (as found in 2014 Silverado and 2015 Suburban) is a bit less sensitive. It can actually accelerate a bit before you need all 8 cylinders.

    Chevy wins another truck comparison test

    I can only speak for the Chevy, but the new engine's cylinder deactivation means that the differential between highway/steady speed MPG and in town MPG is going to be bigger than usual. I don't really understand the horsepower race... I have never been in a situation where my 318 V8 felt...

    Customs destroy illegally imported LR Defender

    Is this the third or the fourth thread this week about this? Pretty simple, people - the law said illegal imports would be crushed. People knowingly went around the law. If you knowingly break a law, you get to deal with the consequences. If you don't like the law, then get the law changed...

    Yay, another Dakota guy. I love my '95, most comfortable camping platform I've ever had.

    1978 Cherokee Chief Build

    Sigh... I miss my FSJ's. I will tell you, the widetrack D44 is a beefy axle, but I will never forget the time my rear wheel and halfshaft went rolling past me down an offramp. 4" and 33's is a sweet spot for these trucks - when I got it, the brown one was lifted about like yours is now and it...

    The Terrors of Tear Down and the Perils of Project Pause

    My Range Rover is pretty solidly paused at the moment. I only managed to do the coil conversion because I was sick of moving it every three days and bouncing on the bumpstops. Next come the HVAC and the idle and the front driveshaft and the brakes and the and the and the

    I want it!

    Offer him 75 cents. Oftentimes, people on Craigslist are negotiable!

    i wanna buy a disco 2 but................

    My $500 Range Rover has 186,000 miles on it. I just switched to coils from air suspension because of a short, but other than that it has been very reliable. Not once have I ever been unable to get home. My '95 Disco (bought new) died to save my life at 185k miles. In all that time, we were...
