    New to me 2018 Disco 5 Diesel

    Got around to replacing wheels/tires to start the Overland-ish build up. 20" RRS wheels with 275/55/20 Duratrac's. Loving the look now! Before/After pic

    New to me 2018 Disco 5 Diesel

    Nice! I'm loving it so far as well. "Pouring fuel through" was one of the main reasons for me to upgrade to the diesel as well. I've put duratracs on a few vehicles and love them, but have heard great things about the general grabber too! Do the lift rods change the ride much? Guessing I...

    New to me 2018 Disco 5 Diesel

    Agreed, I find what you stated to be quite reasonable. I'd get the black LR 20" wheel, but anywhere on Land Rover's site they want almost $1000 a piece. Through a refurbished site, they still want $600 per... so that's definitely steering me away from the LR option unless I can...

    New to me 2018 Disco 5 Diesel

    Cool, I'll take a look at offerings from Lucky8 and Redbourne! I'm curious as I look at 20" LR black wheels, they seem to be insanely expensive. Any thoughts on a good place to look to swap to get the costs down? Planning on headed to the dealer to ask the heated windshield question and...

    New to me 2018 Disco 5 Diesel

    I bit the bullet this week after lurking and looking at Disco 5's for a little while. I'm fairly newish to the Land Rover brand having owned a LR4 Landmark for the past year and a half. I fell in love, but was always interested in a little better road manners and mileage in order to get to the...

    Coolant pipe failure (SCV6)

    Good thoughts around the supercharger oil/coupler. Yes it's under an extended warranty but not factory. I'm having British 4x4 here in Utah do the work which is much much less than the dealer so I may ask while he has it apart if on the cheaper end. If not, that's something I could probably do...

    Coolant pipe failure (SCV6)

    2016 with 74K miles. Going through this right now. A low coolant warning started flashing on/off a few times in the last week. I topped it up as I thought since it's been 100 degrees plus outside, it was working overtime. After topping up, a few days later, coolant light again. No...

    LR4 to Defender direct comparison questions

    Thanks for the reply. Good comparison. I recently moved to Utah and plan on doing a lot of the same. Highway miles to get to the offroad exploration. I have the V6 so it may not be a comparison, but how do you find the power between your 2013 V8 and the Defender?

    LR4 to Defender direct comparison questions

    I know this has been done in a few ways a few different times now, but I've never really seen or heard a direct comparison between driving dynamics of the LR4 and new Defender. Is there anyone here coming directly from a LR4 that could give some opinions. I'm on the fence of building out the...

    LR3 to LR4V8 to LR4SCV6 differences

    I have a 2016 HSE LUX with the vision assist and HD package. I wanted a 13 with the same options to get the V8 but any LR4 with those options was a needle in a haystack. Finally found the 16 with 60K on it this past year and pulled the trigger. I do notice the lack of torque when towing as...

    Has anyone reflashed their 3.0SC V6 aka Tune?

    Yeah I was looking at the pulley/tune together to make sure the increase happened in the actual range for towing. Makes it sound pretty good based on your offroading/overlanding trips with no issues. I'm pulling through the rockies at altitude so anything I can get to keep it in the power...

    Has anyone reflashed their 3.0SC V6 aka Tune?

    Bumping this back up a year on... I just picked up a 16 LR4 and while it's fairly responsive I would love it to have a reasonable amount of power for towing and mtns. Found this thread and it all looks pretty simple for big gains. My curiosity about this setup is more inline with how reliable...

    Lean condition at idle

    No trouble code that I could find in my tool either. The shop just wanted to test pressure to make sure there was nothing else and found it. Also tested the water pump while there.

    Lean condition at idle

    My fault yes. It was the Low Pressure fuel pump in the fuel tank. From what I learned after picking it up today is that they apparently have a tendency to have lower pressure than they should. At the same time they replaced the fuel filter, pressure sensor, and fuel pump assembly. Sounded...

    Lean condition at idle

    Yeah good question. I didn't feel too much hesitation on throttle or anything like that. I did wonder if part of the surge at idle was fuel pump related though.. kind of like only a certain amount of fuel was getting through it? I dunno though, this is month 3 with a Land Rover of any type...
