    Hello all!

    Here is my daily driven (not originally intended) LR4 that happens to make its way up onto trails in NH / MA / VT on a somewhat regular basis. Having moved from Britain, I decided to pick up a new automotive hobby, and off-roading became it. I've had the 2010 LR4 since Spring 2017, done over 27,000 miles on it and have slowly worked on it myself to bring it up to what it's become - a still mostly stock Land Rover!:

    2010 LR4 5.0 V8 HSE
    • Original air height adjustable suspension
    • Center / rear locking differential
    New bits:
    • Atturo MT tyres
    • Upgraded EBC brake pads
    • Full size spare
    • Roof rack with aux fuel tank, track boards and hi-lift jack
    • Ladder
    • Front 'spotter' camera
    • Rock sliders with compressor guard
    • Deleted 1 resonator (Happy V8 noises)

    Videos:

    Here is a short video of a trip on Monday:

    And an even shorter one of a trip to Northern Country in NH!:

    Apologies for the posting silence since my self intro! Been busy getting a last few outings before the weather shuts is out some trails!

    Thank you all for the welcome!

    Already made one change, swapped out the Atturo M/Ts for a set of GoodYear Wrangler Adventure A/Ts that are also one size up. The Atturos we're good but at least two tires had already suffered broken belts within 11000 miles - tyre dealer did a deal and helped swapping them out :)

    So far, great runs since with the Weather! Here's a pic of the end of the day if another run with a friend's Range Rover on 21"s!!!

    Will be staying in touch :)

    I stumbled on this welcome post in the "Recent Threads" area that I rarely check. Please make a point of posting and commenting in the LR4 section which is fairly active. We'd love to see more of your exploits and share knowledge about these unique vehicles.
