    Order of off-road mods

    Thanks for the responses folks! I recently ordered a set of Voyager sliders. I was looking at the APT compressor guard and ASFIR tank guard. I will have to take a second look at the Voyager sliders -- I recall I had the choice of step or no step but didn't recall seeing a compressor option...

    LR4 Front coolant outlet tube BS

    Out of curiosity, @quirozson, at what mileage did the pipe go ?

    Everything about tires for LR4/ LR3 with 18" wheels

    About a half inch on each side. Gonna be close. Stock 19 is offset ET53, Compos are ET44? I believe. So 1/2 the difference. Tires are also about 10mm wider. So you’re moving the outside edge 14-15 mm further out on each side.

    LR4 Front coolant outlet tube BS

    Rags in the exhaust? Were they doing the old-school test for a burnt valve?

    Order of off-road mods

    I live in Colorado and want to start tackling some more challenging stuff. I wanted to get people's thoughts on what the essential protection would be. I already have tuffant steel wheels, Cooper AT3 E-range tires, and an IID tool to add a bit of lift. I carry a shovel, compressor, recovery...

    getting that damn eco/stop start light off on the IP

    Hilariously, I am in some weird zone where (presumably) my battery is weak enough that the start/stop is disabled but strong enough that I don't have the ECO light turning on. I should probably pull out a multimeter and check the voltages on both.

    Offroad modes and terrain

    I thought this was an interesting read as well. I'm sure there have been some updates since the LR3, but I assume the same concepts are being applied in our trucks too. https://www.caranddriver.com/features/a18202781/what-does-terrain-response-do/

    Genuine New Front Crossover Pipe Defects

    I don't love this either and, once it started making a bit of noise, ended up dumping my higher mileage 5.0 for the lowest mile 3.0SC I could find. Unfortunately, I think the reality is that 3/4 of new LRs are leased to status-conscious buyers, they sell every car they make, and there's a...

    Offroad modes and terrain

    I feel like rock crawl mode softens the throttle response and severely curtails wheelspin -- possible you were trying to accelerate hard enough you got wheelspin? Here's a copypasta from Aulro about the effects of the different modes... GRASS/GRAVEL/SNOW Function. Engine Management System...

    getting that damn eco/stop start light off on the IP

    If you have the V6 and get a tune from Velocity AP, they can disable it.

    LR4 vs Defender

    Would be a lot more interesting if you could at least get the 6 cyl with the 18" wheels.

    Map missing from Navigation

    Oddly enough, I had that issue happen after completing the map update but before following the step of locking the car and powering it down for 15+ minutes as it calls for in the instructions. After that the map came back up. I'm wondering if maybe there's something missing in the install that...

    LR4 Navigation Update...

    Answer was yes if anyone else runs across this.

    LR4 Navigation Update...

    Just to double-check.. the whole wait for nav to restart then turn the car off for 15 minutes.... If I'm in the middle of a trip, I can keep the car on and restart when I'm done driving, right ?

    Defender 130 is out!

    Doesn't look like it has a flat load floor... https://hips.hearstapps.com/hmg-prod.s3.amazonaws.com/images/2023-land-rover-defender-130-123-1653829194.jpg?crop=1xw:1xh;center,top&resize=980:*
