    Question to those running the same vehicle wheels on your trailer..

    Curious . . . What would be a proper "7" or "9" tire rotation pattern, so you get the most out of ALL your matching tires? Huge circle? (so you don't lose track) Figure 8? (spare being the intersection) Double Triple Rearward Cross? (no idea what that looks like haha)

    Update: Bought It - WTB: Land Rover LR3

    Disagree. EAS makes the LR3 an LR3! Height adjustment, cross-linked valves, auto load/trailer leveling, amazing comfort on and off-road . . . EAS will be superior to a coil conversion in almost every way. Fixing and maintaining the system properly is really not that complicated (or that...

    Land Rover ideas for Jeeps

    I'm sure nobody here thinks it isn't awesome. I'm a sucker for a good flatfender! Looks like it might be a CJ2A body on a CJ5 frame? It's just that this thread is about LR ideas that can be used on Jeeps. And there aren't any on that one. Keep em coming! This has been a great read.

    LR3 and LR4 Brake Life

    PO put new brakes front/rear at 110k miles, I don't remember brand (I bought at 116k) Likely OEM as it was all dealer serviced. They left horrible dust and were toast at 20k use. I put new pads/sensors on at 130k miles (Akebono Euro all 4 corners) I love them - SO clean and quiet - and...

    LR3 underhood compressor

    I decided on a portable Viair. Reasons: 1. not subject to constant underhood heat (can stow in car or garage when not needed) 2. easier for other cars to share (my own, friends, trailers, bikes, etc) 3. no air locker (or other on-board air requirement) On-board sure looks cool tho.

    air suspension problems

    Before you clean out or rebuild/replace the valve blocks, I would strongly suggest that you replace your compressor desiccant if you haven't already. There are rebuild kits out there, some even include a metal end cap to eliminate the common crack that develops between the fittings. Mine had the...

    LR3 Keys

    Just so you know, the LR3 key is supposed to be completely waterproof. So if you do find it, it is likely to be fine. Rice or desiccant could still be good precaution though. I will repeat those who say to get an eBay key for $20 and program it yourself with an IIDTool (or similar). I have done...

    LT265/65R18/E KO2 vs 265/65R18/SL Wildpeaks - sidewall strenght?

    May be old news, but Wildpeak come in XL (kind of a mid-way between SL and E) in your original size: 265/60R18 I have them on my LR3 due to the need for XL minimum rating I also have the same issue wanting 265/65R18 in E for the Wildpeak, but I asked them and they have no plans to make one

    Air suspension and Alignmets

    IIDtool can enter "tight tolerance" mode, which is for just that purpose of alignment. But I have also heard that it really isn't necessary, and idling during the alignment with a door open is good enough. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I have not yet had my LR3 aligned.
