    Anyone tried the Tepui Luxury roof top mattress?

    I just purchased one and it was money well spent. I am a side sleeper and the original mattres was too hard. The memory foam top on this one makes it perfect for me.

    True Trac vs Open Diff

    I run Trutracs front and rear in a 1996 Disco1. When I first put them in I noticed the centering others have described here, but within a few weeks I learn to compensate and don’t notice. My wife occasionally drives the truck and never noticed it. I drive the truck in all kinds of conditions...

    I have looked at this a number of times and I always come to the same conclusion. One high capacity battery is all you need. If you are worried about running you battery down, get a portable Lithium jump box like the Noco Genius.

    Does the rep of "unreliable" still hold true?

    One of the instructors at last years OEX put it well. He said Rovers and Toyotas are both very reliable. The Rover just needs more maintenance. I have a 1996 D1 that takes me to amazing places in the Utah desert. I never think twice about traveling out there alone and it has never stranded...

    Wrist watches for the adventure-minded?

    I wear an inexpensive Marathon watch. I figure if it is good enough for our military, I probably can’t beat it up. Long battery life, super bright tritium night glow and a rotating bezel for dual time zones or timing or whatever. I have this one...

    Best repair shop in Moab, UT

    I'm not sure where you are headed from Moab, but Mike at British 4x4 in Salt Lake City is fantastic. He is probably the closest Land Rover guy to you right now.

    Two-time LR owner seeks third round of torture. What should I get?

    I agree with most of what has been said here. I am on my second 96 D1 ( teenage son totaled the first one) and have been very happy. The problem you will find with the D1 is they are getting hard to find with low miles, no sun roofs, manual, etc. Also I am starting to have trouble finding...
