    Post pictures of your Land Rover.

    Mine is a 2012 with 102-103 miles on it. I did the 100,000 miles service including gearbox before I left for this trip and saw no signs of leaking. The front and rear cross over pipes were on my list to change but ran out of time before I left. I would say 80-90k miles is a good time to change...

    A discussion about Rover pricing....are values really gone this high?

    Don’t look at Aussie defender and RRC pricing. Used 2015-2017 Defenders with 50,000km are going for $20-30k more than they were new. In 2016 I was very close to buying a 90, silver with “Black pack”, then I was offered a job in the US and didn’t buy it. If I just had and stuck it in a mates...

    And back in its natural habitat. Rear cross over pipe went pop, going up the hills leaving Salt Lake I noticed it pretty quickly, gap tool said temp only went 5-10°f above normal operating temp. It’s sitting at the back of a Indy LR shop in Salt lake to hopefully get fixed tomorrow.

    Storing an LR3

    I have a different reliable British car in storage, a Lotus. It is stored for a lot longer than 6 months. It's back in Australia while I am here working in the US. It gets driven when ever I get a chance to go back, which before covid was once a year. -It is on a battery tender, mainly for...

    LR3/LR4 Rhino OX hitch weld failures

    Thanks but I want the clearance as I do a lot of my trips with my bike and do hardish 4x4 trails with it on there. I have the long OEM one right now which makes the clearance almost nothing.

    LR3/LR4 Rhino OX hitch weld failures

    What time frame were you guys given to get your replacement hitches? I'm looking to buy new one and they are out of stock everywhere. The warranty ones should go out before they start reselling them, if they are going to resell them. I'm only looking to get my bike rack as far off the ground...

    Land Rover VIN look up?? Topix, VINDECODERZ Not working ??

    Vindecoderz worked when I was looking for a LR4 with HD pack about 1.5 years ago. It correctly said the car I now currently own had the HD pack. It would only let me do like 10-15 checks in a row then not give me any info, I would try again 10-12 hours later and it would work again. I just...

    Best quality replacement LR3/4 front lower control arms

    My wheel alignment shop said the same thing about the AB lower control arm kit bolts after I installed them on my old LR3. They said the bolts were really low quality and the cam size on the adjustment bolt were too small. I emailed AB but never heard back.

    New Defender News

    If Land Rover were smart they would do that with press and reviewers. I don’t know the exact situation for every reviewer and their interactions with Land Rover. If I reviewer I would want to know know about every feature and the easiest way to learn in get taught from the cars manufacturer...

    New Defender News

    Ronny Dalh had issues but I doubt the he has driven any LR other than an old Defender. I can't find who the test was I watched from a UK review. Reviewers may only get a day, maybe two with the press cars and I hardly doubt they are going read the manual for every car they drive. They should, to...

    New Defender News

    That has been a problem with quite a few Youtube reviews as well. Land Rover Aus didn't seem to have a manual in the press cars and a few people struggled with changing the 4x4 system. And of you need a manual to change the 4x4 modes it's way to difficult.
