    Timing chain…

    I know we’ve seen enough of these threads but I’m fairly confident that after leaving the truck sitting for 9 days while I was on vacation I was greeted with a dead battery and the chain rattle. This is the first time I’ve heard it and it seems to go away after the truck has been running for a...

    Bad tie rod ends?

    So it’s been over 2 years and I still get some steering wheel shake at higher speeds from 75Mph< I’ve done LCA’s sway bar links and mounts, rebalanced the wheels multiple times and still happens. The steering sometimes will go light when under moderate power (3500ish rpm) at like 70 ish mph. So...

    K&N air filter?

    About time for some new air filters and ive caught myself in a predicament. I’m thinking of going with a K&N reusable air filter but I’ve held back because I don’t know if the factory ones have extra particular filtering for dust in off road conditions or help filter out water incase it some how...

    Spark plugs?

    I was going through my maintenance of what I needed to have done within the next month and I realized that I had never replaced my spark plugs at 105k. I current have 131k on the truck and it still runs great, no lack of power, no rough idle, no check engine light, the car runs absolutely...

    Ton of faults after an aftermarket subwoofer was installed (SOLVED)

    Well had a subwoofer put in and got the car back early this afternoon and everything was great, until I got on the freeway. After going over 45 mph the every light on the dash came on (stability control, ABS, parking brake, cruise control, suspension, transmission etc.) I’m not too familiar with...

    Steering issue (is this normal?)

    I posted a form about this a couple of months ago but no one really had any idea about what I was talking about so I have come back with a video. Is this normal under hard acceleration? You can see in the video that the steering wheel pulls hard to the right and then goes straight then...

    Light Bar suggestions?

    Planing on getting my front runner rack installed with a light bar mounted under the roof rack in between the trucks roof and the rack. Right now I have a couple of options of light bars, but I don’t have many trustworthy reviews to back them up. I’m looking for a straight LED light bar 42-46...

    Creaking when I turn left (comes from the right wheel)

    Starting to notice a creaking when I turn left or articulate over things. I did a test to see what wheel it comes from by putting one of the Front wheels on a low curb and having the other one on pavement. This showed me that it was coming from the right wheel. It would Creak while going up the...

    Toque steer?

    I’ve noticed an issue that I thought would go away when the alignment was fixed but it didn’t. Basically when I go from a stand still and press the gas heavier then normal the steering wheel will steer right and then straighten out when I take my hands off of it. Almost like toque steer in a...

    There she blows, (maybe coolant crossover)

    Well, it looks like my car decided to relieve its self of all of its coolant after a drive to one of my buddy’s houses. I’m guessing it’s the inevitable coolant crossover pipe but I’m not too sure. I’ll keep you guys updated when I hear from the shop on Monday. Good news is my oil temperature...

    Speedometer recalibration with IID Tool

    Hey guys,I’ve been trying to re-calibrate my speedometer with my IID tool and I’m having a bit of trouble. I am running 265/65/18s with a total diameter of 31.5 inches. I told the IID tool that I had 32 inch tires and I was on the freeway and the speedometer says I’m going “72” MPH but Waze says...

    Gas tank fuel capacity.

    So I finally got sick and tired of staring at it and decided to make this post about it so here is my issue. I noticed about 10k miles ago that when I would fill up my LR4 that I was only getting 250 miles on a full tank. It’s quite inconsistent but it seems to have gotten worse now only getting...

    Clunk/knock, starting to get concerned.

    Well here I am again! I’ve been hearing a clunk/knock recently that’s starting to scare me a little bit. After I got my tires I got exited and decided to have some fun with her, which led to me accidentally hitting a jump at 40 Mph and throwing off the alignment and causing a little bit of play...

    Steering wheel shake

    Getting a noticeable steering wheel shake/jitter at higher speeds on most surfaces. Didn’t get this before upgrading to 31’s. I know the 18 inch wheels a long with the bigger tires are much heavier and track different but I’m not sure if the place that put the tires on balanced them the best or...

    Traction control/ESC issues

    I recently swapped 18’ inch wheels with 265/65/18 tires onto my LR4. This 4th of July weekend I went up to Lake Arrowhead which requires you to drive up a mountain with sloped corners that you can take relatively fast even in this heavy of a car. This time however it was crowded going up the...

    18’ Tuff ant wheels

    Just had my 18’ Tuff ant wheels attempted to be mounted and me being clueless though that these were made so you didn’t have to grind the calipers down or put use spacers. Just to make sure I’m not missing anything, I do have to do one of those options correct. I’d also appreciate to hear why...

    Tpms and 18’

    Getting new 18 inch wheels and tires Wednesday. While I was ordering my tires from the shop they told me the tpms from my factory 19’ is able to be swapped to the new 18’ wheels. I see all these forms about people turning off tpms with the iid tool. Why wouldn’t they just swap them over like I...

    Rear main seal?!

    Just had the the car in for 110k service and was told my exhaust manifold bolts were corroded and snapped off but that’s a different post for a different time. On the service sheet I was also reminded that my mechanic believes I have a rear main seal leak. He noticed oil between the engine and...

    what’s the fastest you’ve gone in your LR4

    Went to Arizona this weekend to break quarantine last weekend. The trip was easy and made great time with no one on the road. This gave me the privilege to safely go a little faster then I was supposed to. I found that on oem wheels regular tires I found out that the car could sit quite...

I decided to do door deadening on my 480w Harmon/kardon Logic7 System using dynamat. Because I’m a sound ***** and I have my bass setting...

    IID tool question

    Just a question with iid tool. So I’ve noticed there’s an insane difference from the $2,100 iid tool and the $500 iid tool. I would like to buy the $500 but I need it to be able to remove the tpms feature when I get 18 inch rims in September and I’d also like to raise the suspension an inch and...

    Windshield wipers obnoxiously scraping

    I’ve had this issue for as long as I can remember and I’m finally fed up with it. My wipers make a scraping noise every time they wipe to the point were it sounds like their frozen and there is no water on the windshield. It’s not the wipers I’ve had numerous sets and they’ve all done the same...
