    What would you replace your LR3/4 with ?

    Apparently the husband of someone we know has a '69 Bronco in garaged condition since many years ago, maybe since he was a teenager so 80's or 90's. It may go up for sale soon. They had not heard of BAT. You think that's the best place for top $ ?

    What would you replace your LR3/4 with ?

    So what would you choose? Also, I am sure you're aware the LR3/4 etc have mostly "stamped" parts used for the control arms.

    Why not just get an air locker instead of relying on the system to lock it seconds after you need it functioning ?

    Studded vs non-studded Nokian LT2/3 - calling fellow northerners & Canadians

    I had the studded LT2 Nokian on since 1st of year now and only take that vehicle out when conditions suggest. A week in the Winthrop area that I knew would be ice and snow proved the correct choice especially in dealing with the mountain passes.

    All that other stuff but compromise on such a simple thing as having a proper matching spare? Did Thor run out of wheels? ;)

    2017 G550 - Tire Options

    Hey, I'm curious if you know if the 550 brake size changed along with the 2016 engine change for the G550? If I were choosing wheels, and could choose from the Atic or Hutchinson as well as other MB wheels by way of your spacers, then the old G55 16x9 would be a nice option as well, although...

    Most of your photos look like the same spots I've been to as well.

    H&R also makes a very nice spacer with the studs being spline type pressed in from behind rather than the thread in type some others use. I've never seen the Bora. The HR I got for my rover are available in 25mm and 30mm

    Studded vs non-studded Nokian LT2/3 - calling fellow northerners & Canadians

    I think I mentioned they I currently have the studded Nokian LT2 in narrow 245/75-17 on factory 17x7. While overkill a lot of the time, when it’s the right time, it’s like nothing else to have studs on compacted snow and ice. like two weeks ago in eastern Washington and over all the passes...

    LR3 owners sound off, which tires?

    what bumper? 33 will be tight or not work at all with factory bumper, probably even if you have a factory 17", like i do, no spacers, and that narrow tire, though it would be fun to test to see just how close it is. I have the arb bumper and it's been so long i have no recollection on how much...
