    Have a choice between a 2016 lr4 silver edition 25k miles and the HEAVY DUTY PACKAGE or a landmark edition with 18k miles and no heavy duty.

    Never owned an lr4....love them tho. But Im trading in a fully paid off honda pilot that ive had since new for a used 2016 lr4 with a payment...am I crazy?

    Thanks in advance for any wise advise!

    Heavy Duty package gives you a 2-speed transfer case, locking rear differential (that you can't control) and a full size spare. These are all useful if you plan on doing any offroading. If you know it's going to not see much more than the occasional unpaved road I'd get the landmark edition over the HD. Other situation I can think of desiring the HD package is if you towed a lot, the low range can be useful.

    HD no question imo. A LR4 without a two speed transfer case seems pretty pointless to me.

    If you want to do serious offroading, take the HD package! If you might take it on the dirt here and there, I wouldn't worry about it.

    Thanks guys! I went with the HD package! Im so excited to learn everything it has to offer! Im still confused by what the silver edition gave me....?
