    Order of off-road mods

    Agreed that my priorities were to protect the underside, but I wanted to keep weight at a minimal. I went with ASFIR (aluminum) sump and gear skid, Terrafirma sliders, and Dark Crow Designs (steel) gas skid. Served me very well with lots of battle scars. Once you get top heavy like I did...

    What's everyone's favourite replacement lower control arms?

    I don't think it's supposed to move that much or much at all.

    Water pump replacement - mystery plug

    Funny, the gray y-pipe that bends down to the right is a dead y split. The hose is supposed to go to a black plastic n i p p l e that goes to the water pump. You can't just buy that piece, but someone recently made the brass replacement version. In hind sight, whomever did that made a genius...

    LR4 Front coolant outlet tube BS

    Looks like you dodged a big bullet there. I found that you can get the majority of the air pockets out by removing the bleed screw next to the battery, removing the overflow connector near the throttle body, and the coolant reservoir cap. The coolant will automatically level itself to a certain...

    What's everyone's favourite replacement lower control arms?

    If you guys are replacing front lower LCAs that often, I'd highly recommend getting them from FCP Euro. I replaced mine with Lucky8 polys 2 years ago and they're ok. Squeaks a bit here and there, but not too bad. I'm thinking I just need to poly grease lube them again to prevent squeaking and...

    Brake pad fun

    I agree... I rotate my tires a lot and it takes 2 seconds to look at the pad thickness. But then again, I also shorted my pad warning sensors. Both were worn out from being old and I didn't feel like replacing them. They're probably one of the less inexpensive things on the maintenance list, but...

    Dealership Multi-Point Inspection INSANE Recommendations!

    I recently had an exhaust leak, so, I pulled my heads off to do both exhaust manifold gaskets. I still ended up spending under $2k and diy the entire project. I spent 4-5 days over 14 hours a day pulling it apart, cleaning, rethreading most holes, and putting it back together. Taking it apart...

    Zip tie timing quide and tensioner replacement

    Check your bank 1 and bank 2 intake and exhaust cam gear position by degrees. If it's really off you'll see it. It's also vvti and "should" compensate a bit, but if it's way off you might hurt it in the long run.

    Random LR4 Death and Resurrection

    Try an ohm test from the negative battery post to various grounding points of the engine bay. It might be the main grounding post behind the wheel well.

    Audio Control Module

    That sounds reasonable, considering the Spiral Audio kit with the MOST fiber optic module is almost $700. There's a "Tesla" style kit too. Maybe that's an option...

    What should I strip off this LR3 for spare parts for my LR4?

    Height sensors, valve blocks, short roof rails, tow harness, and anything else you need.

    Help identify this and if it’s a issue

    I noticed my grease stains 30k miles before I noticed vibration, and before I swapped it out. I bought this and it sat for a year or so... haven't had any issues with it so far.
