Thread: Is a Rover for me?

    Very cool replacement, but I think that the first picture requires a little bit of explanation.. I know the Montero is capable, but that's like an 87 degree decline..

    Ah, what you can't see in the picture is the other side of the *ridge* it came off of. My buddy gave me an impromptu challange to "Climb that hill", which the Monty did without issue. My failing was that I didn't scout the top, I just assumed it was a plateau. Up and over I went. I actually feel very blessed it was only what you see....I had my two boys and the "challangers" two boys in the Monty when it went over. Luckily only a bit of seatbelt rash and shaken nerves.

    Wow, that is quite an incline. I don't think the LR3 would make that one though.

    Awesome replacement. You will be very happy with it. Good thing you held out for the rear locker for serious offroading.
