    Land Rover owners… (previous owners)

    When I was looking for my RR almost a decade ago many were in similar condition. I looked at several DIs and RRCs, most were on their fourth or fifth owners at best. I found my RRC in the back of a sketchy used car lot and it had about an inch of pecan tree sap covering it, I am the 3rd...

    Transmission leaking badly - options...

    FWIW you can remove that output "spud" shaft from the transmission insitu. You will have to remove the inspection plate cover on the LT230 and remove the input gear which will allow you to access the ZF output/tail/spud shaft. This made installation of the LT230 much easier for me. I am 99%...

    2019 4Runner Observations

    Mostly true, funny you post this as I am sitting in the back of a 2015. They have as much umph as any Rover I've driven, handles only marginally than my RRC. They are great vehicles that havent been completely neutered. I'm sure the next generation will be on a Camry platform with a GDI...

    Opinions on Tires

    KM3 is currently available in 255/85. Not many options in this size, Toyo offers an MT that is more expensive. I've always thought BFG KM's were great tires, the best compromise. Falkens are currently at the top of the list for my RRC and KM3 for D90. STT pro seems to be really popular tires...
