    As Predicted. (Defender news)

    I don't understand the "Defender is just what the Disco 5 should've been debate". The LR4 is relatively utilitarian but ultimately a luxury vehicle. People just forget that Land Rover products used to be dated when they came out, hence the vehicles felt more utilitarian than they really were...

    As Predicted. (Defender news)

    I've spent a lot of time in the P400e full sized RR and it is great. The V8 Defender will be a cool G Killer, and given how expensive the new V8 Jeep, Raptor, and TRX are, the V8 Defender ain't toooo far ahead. Seems like they're packaging it with most of the stuff standard too. Sure, the big...

    Showoff Your LR4

    I got extremely lucky and found a new take-off set for $900 (I got hooked up because I literally drove 700 miles round trip to pick up in person). I had to buy TPMS sensors which were an additional $400. I was not running TPMS with my TuffAnt steelies (even though it's possible). Took my KO2's...

    Showoff Your LR4

    I was stuck all day in an office for two years, so I've been taking advantage of my new found freedom. I just got a new windshield and some new steelies.......

    Showoff Your LR4

    Nice! I also looked for a long time and picked up something similar. 2013 LR4 with HD and only 50k miles. 10 months later, I'm almost at 73k.

    Los Angeles Mechanic/Shop Recommendation?

    Not up north, but I live in West LA and shoot down to Kalahari Motorsport in Hawthorne. Martin (who is in charge of the one man shop) is the man.

    18”New Defender steelies on LR4

    I'd rather shell out the extra $$ for LR4 compatible 18" rims rather than downsize on brakes... That being said, I'm swapping out my TuffAnts for Defender Steelies this weekend as I love the classic aesthetic of the white wheels.

    Auxiliary Spot Light Recommendations?

    Help illuminate my path better while driving in remote areas/off pavement in the dark.

    Auxiliary Spot Light Recommendations?

    My Prospeed light mounts are finally coming in... Which 6"ish lights are recommended? I like the power draw of LED, but cannot stand how the lights look that are clearly LED (Baja Designs, for example)... Has anyone tried the PIAA LP560 or LP570 lights? I like the classic look with LED...

    Front skid plate options?

    I've got the Asfir front guard. I powder coated it black and love it. I also have the transmission guard. You have to remove the balancer off of the catalytic converter and bend it out to fit. It wasn't designed for our engines. But given it's cheap, I had no issue bending it out a bit to...

    LR4 Accessories

    Thanks! Despite the interest in these trucks (especially globally) I'm somewhat baffled by the lack of YouTube material on them... I'm running the Voyager hidden winch tray with a Warn Zeon Platinum 10-S winch, which is controlled via a wireless remote. It's very similar to the Devon 4x4...

    LR4 Accessories

    I've gotten a lot of DM's regarding my Terrafirma Rear tire carrier, so here's a quick video I made:

    18”New Defender steelies on LR4

    wow, those look awesome. did you have to do any modifications or add spacers? assuming that's a NAS Spec V6SC model, right?

    What did you do with your Lr4 Today?

    Loving it thus far. It's mostly a visual thing, but getting the spare in and out with the larger tires was a huge pain before. Also I want to put a drawer system in, which would've been tough with the underbody mounted spare. It's the large size and it fits perfectly (I'm running 265/65/18's...
