    I didn't watch it all the way through you (only up to about 4 minutes in), but what a curious set up for that rig? Person spends about $8k on accessories (ARB front bumper, winch, lighting, Kaymar rear bumper, LongRanger fuel tank, LR KIT Raised Air Intake, FrontRunner roof rack, Awning, etc...), and doesn't replace the crap tires the LR comes with? Very peculiar decision making. The single best "mod" any person can do on the LR3/4 is throw away the stock tires and upgrade them with virtually ANYTHING else. The person at Land Rover who selects the OEM tires should be fired in the most public way possible. Still, impressed to see it slip and slide its way through it all in the first 4 minutes. Would be a very boring video with proper tires though!

    these guys are actually testing out the lr4 for a aussie channel I believe. they wanted to keep the basic vehicle stock most of those upgrades (bumper etc) are prototypes from ARB

    sounded like a nice diesel engine in there....just another reason for us in the USA to be unhappy.

    If that is an ARB rear bumper, then bring it to the USA now!!!!! Just please keep it cheaper than the Kaymar.
