    2011 LR4 HSE Build and Service

    Maybe mostly service hehe. I recently picked up a well maintained (oil changed every 5k), garaged LR4 in Ipanema Sand for an “I can’t pass this up” price. I had been looking for a 2013 Lux almost exclusively (mainly due to timing chain issues) for a few months. So many had serious holes in...

    1995 Toyota Land Cruiser VX Limited JDM

    this looks decent. And if it’s price doesn’t go up much, could be a good deal. Triple Locked. Winch.

    Yakima SkyRise 2 Review

    I hadn’t seen many (any actually) reviews that were in depth on the YS RTT. I’ve been wanting a RTT for some time, and while I’d love the James Baroud or something similar, the price point just wasn’t working for me. A friend mentioned the YS RTT was on sale and if you add the REI membership...

    I’m experiencing very slow download speeds for Gaia maps onto IPad Air 2 with 120mbps WiFi. Has anyone else had this problem and maybe found a solution?

    Test Drive Tomorrow Taking this for an overnight test drive tomorrow. Barring rust (Missouri car), it seems to be a decent deal. Single owner, single local dealership- ALL maintenance done and documented. Clean...

    Looks pretty good. If anyone is serious about it, it’s close by and I’ll go eyeball it.

    A Week Plus on the Trans America Trail

    A Week (and some) on the Trans America Trail My stepson, a friend of his and I leave Monday for about a week on the TAT. They just got their permits in the last month or so, and they'll be doing a lot of the off-pavement driving while I do the navigation… and maybe making sure we stay on the...

    2 2005 LR3's

    In my window shopping for a LR, I came across these at a used dealer in IL. Both under 100k, neither are HD. But the pricing seems pretty darn low. I'm still some months away from a purchase so... Seems too low...

    Land Rover Buying Advice Wanted

    I'll be buying a "new to me" vehicle in the upcoming months and I need some advice regarding which one to buy. I'm considering either a 2003-2004 D2, or one of the LR3 models. I used to own a 2004 D2 that I loved, but sold after it overheated (electric fan failed) and I rebuilt the top end of...

    Which Land Cruiser Should I Get??

    Caveat(s)- turbo-Diesel (I'll import). Automatic. Late 80's, early 90's (for obvious reasons). To buy in next 12 months. Currently considering HDJ81, HZJ77, and LJ78. It will be a Daily driver and perhaps much longer trips eventually. What's good and bad about each of them? Which is the best...
