    Fuel Cans: Scepter or Valpro?

    I have had NATO cans for over twenty years and they show no signs of corrosion. I suppose if you want them to last for fifty years there might be some indication of corrosion but really who is going to pass them on to their heirs?

    Thinking About an LR3

    I have owned my 07 LR3 HSE for about 3 years now and am mildly surprised at its capabilities that sometimes surpass my skills at maneuvering it through many trails and obstacles. I was recently on a trail that often seemed to vanish and become just granite cap rock. It performed very well, even...

    Gazelle tents--how do they do in wind and rain?

    I do not have one, I have an OZ3 but friend has one and on our last trip, while on a hike, the wind came up, pulled the stakes out (in sand) and beat the tent into a tree and poked several holes in the tent. There are several ways to patch holes I am told, tent repair tape is one. In a very...

    Wanted. Driver side mirror for 07 LR3.

    Driver side mirror for 07 LR3. I am sure that several other year mirrors will fit. Bashed on an obstacle. I am in Denver, CO.

    Thinking About an LR3

    I try to not compare my LR3 to other vehicles as that will either put you ahead or behind depending on the vehicle you choose. It is not as capable as my Pinzgauer or even close to my Mog but they are for much different uses. I just know that the LR is more capable than I will ever be. My '07...

    Camping Tents

    Yes, I suppose the OZ tent is pricy for some but I find that ease of use and room inside is well worth the bit of extra cost. When I travel by myself I use a cot tent. Granted it is not a stand up thing but very easy to set up and quite comfortable for sleeping. I don't live in the tent so it...

    What would you replace your LR3/4 with ?

    If I could fit it in the garage I would have a UniMog 1300.

    TIRES vs MPG

    Kind of depends on the size of the tank, doesn't it. Small tank = less distance covered.

    Fastener ?

    If you over drill the hole on the skin, but drill it small enough that the rivets still hold would that allow expansion to occur and not have the skin buckle?

    Fastener ?

    Dissimilar metals? Relative surface areas of contacting dissimilar metals is also relevant in determining which metal exhibits accelerated corrosion. It is undesirable to have a large cathode surface in contact with a relatively small anode surface.

    Jerry can vs Rotopax for trailer

    My M416 trailer came with can mounts in front of the fenders. I used one for fuel and one for water cans. Obtained straps for them on surplus site and it worked well. It was an M416A New gaskets for the Nato can can be obtained on Amazon or many of the surplus sites. In reality, if you remove...

    2020 Defender Spy Shots....

    Almost everyone has injected an opinion here and it is usually their own for their own purposes, as I did. I find this newer vehicle with possibly less room inside than most may have to resort to adding pods to the outside for gear. I find that a design issue that might require further study but...

    2020 Defender Spy Shots....

    Hanging stuff off the sides is just asking for them to get ripped off by trees and bushes. I have been on trails where side clearance is minimal and the stripes I get are significant. If you are selling this for mall cruisers then I guess the picnic crowd will surely like it.

    ARB JACK vs. Hi-Lift Jack

    I was in an off road equipment shop the other day and seeing an ARB jack there I examined it. Heavy piece of kit, comparable weight to a HL. Trying to figure how to mount it outside (HL is on my front ARB bumper) as there is no room inside my LR for one.
