    The ones making the most money are doing it with warranty work. Sure, they do a ton of customer pay work just based on the volume of cars they work on in a day. They aren’t scamming customers if that’s what you’re thinking.

    In LA we had a least four techs making over $250k and one that was making over $400k. I would think even the C techs were making close to $100k, but I’m not sure about that

    My Amex doesn’t have a preset spending limit , but you can check “spending power” if you want to make a large purchase. I’m not some rich baller and $25k is within my limit. I will use my card anywhere. Oh, and by the way, I’m a Land Rover mechanic like Stew.

    I think there’s a miscommunication or misunderstanding here. Let’s take the scenario where you’re going to the beach to go swimming and not bringing a bag to leave your keys in. The smart key does in fact have a detachable key blade in it, but it only locks and unlocks the drivers door. Would...

    What regular key? Smart keys aren’t waterproof... there is the key that unlocks the drivers door, but it doesn’t disarm the alarm or start the vehicle. I don’t think you can lock the key in the car without another remote.

    Smart keys aren’t waterproof. the activity key is basically so you can go to the beach and leave the keys in the car. I don’t think it’s meant to be an every day thing, just a solution to a minor inconvenience if you don’t want to leave your keys In your bag while you go swimming. It’s been...

    Looking at a 2013 LR4 - main areas of concern?

    Sure, it could, but not likely in my experience. However, the remotes, keyless vehicle module, and RF antennas are not reliable. At least they have the IAU as a backup.

    Dumb ass mistake, looking for options

    Definitely get a used axle and just swap it as an assembly. It’s probably faster to do that than it is to replace a ball joint.

    I’d be starting with a new cap and rotor. I think the red rotors are supposed to be the best ones available. how cold is cold?

    Can anybody name the manufacturer of this bumper?

    I think they look great, so worth removing in my opinion.

    d1 Heavy duty axle shafts

    No. I’m just saying it might be worth reaching out to them as you may be surprised by the price.

    d1 Heavy duty axle shafts

    I bought a set from Lucky 8 that were not on their website and were a good bit cheaper than Ashcroft.

    Another warm temp thread...

    Could you have some mud in the radiator or condenser?

    Another warm temp thread...

    Water pumps usually fail completely and get inefficient over time. 208F isn't very hot IMO. I think the fans on a D1 don't even come on until over 210F.
