    NAS LR3 build with an overseas twist

    Hey, LOL, I got you confused with a PM sent to me asking about where I found metal air line splicers. His forum name is NASDIESEL which I just connected to the NAS forcthis thread ;) was using my phone so didntvsee clearly. Anyway, you should have these tucked away in the LR3 anyway ;)

    LR3/LR4: How to find the coveted rear locking diff

    I almost bought a white 07 SE totally loaded incl locker when I chose my black 07 HSE which was also fully optioned but without the locker. I was too impatient to wait for an HD optioned Java black HSE or order one. I was buying it new in early 07 so I went with my color choice and have for...

    NAS LR3 build with an overseas twist

    Hey Ray, here's that air line splice in brass, may help in sourcing an available one as this one shows unavilable atm: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07BXBQZZZ/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    RIP 2011 LR4 Kilt by a cell phone and a neon. In a subdiviso

    So actually I heard someone recently mention how awesome the FR fairing works. It might've been someone as picky as you and I, maybe the guy in NoVA ... @Ray_G ? I am planning to try one on my Hannibal rack when I get back to WA.

    285/60R18. LR4 options

    What wheel is that then, the Compomotive or the steel or other? I was confused at first on the Evo wheels which in 18" are 8.5" wide but with 35 ET. To me this is less good than the Compomotive purely from an offset spec. Losing 11mm is a lot to me in this particular area. I am going to...

    Land Rover LR4 wheel size

    To be clear, I'm not sure that size even exists in many, if any, AT tires. If it did, it would also be a very difficult fitting for the many documented reasons. Best sizes are the following on 8" best, to 8.5" doable but starting to limit clearances, 9" asking for trouble with no real...

    Snow Wheeling - Let's talk pressures & Terrain Response/DSC

    Yup, the Nokian WRG2 on the Audi and the LT2 on the LR3 have both proven to be quite awesome. Quattro/torsen center diff on the 4400 lb audi doesn't hurt either though.

    285/60R18. LR4 options

    you'll see my comments on my experience w the sizing on other forum but another tire i like is the Nokian Rotiva: https://www.nokiantires.com/all-season-tires/nokian-rotiiva-at/ They're a leader in developing new technologies in tire engineering. The new Aramid sidewall sure sounds good anyway ;)

    Land Rover LR4 wheel size

    I have never seen steel spacers for the modern land rovers. My favorite are ones that have a stud that is set in via spline or at least not simply threaded in from behind like the terrafirma. I have H&R which are very high quality but i have seen one other similar made in the US but cannot...

    L322 roof rack

    Most of the racks made "for" the range rover are not all that long. The Hannibal discovery 2 rack is roughly 55"x83" and I have one each for the Disco2 and the lr3. While the lr3 slot/track has a range of mounting your RR would ideally only utilize the 6 factory mounting points. I am not sure...

    Looking for 100 series

    I think you'd need to explain this as from everything I've read and a friend who's had several 80, 100 and now a 200 for 5 years, your assumption is unfounded at least regarding "fragile" and "less capable". In fact, everything I've read from similar owners suggests the 200 is not only more...

    Snow Wheeling - Let's talk pressures & Terrain Response/DSC

    My tire choice is based on a wider range of use than your stated purposes and therefor my most likely recommendation is going to come from a that perspective. I tow a 7500 lb tandem trailer sometimes and also make long interstate trips where I want to make time by traveling as fast as possibly...

    Snow Wheeling - Let's talk pressures & Terrain Response/DSC

    Nothing I said in that last post was condescending. Not sure why you're feeling that way but it sounds like you are predisposed to read a tone that was not implied or intended. If you were in a different state of mind, you might re-read that post about low psi and see that I basically agreed...

    Snow Wheeling - Let's talk pressures & Terrain Response/DSC

    I had time for some calculations rather than gut feeling and came up with low psi of 20 for my vehicle and on my tires but 12 psi for a stock LR3 on the SL which is actually basically also a C load range. That tire is also better suited than I had thought from a load range but I do prefer the...
