    For what it's worth, I've got a 265/65/18 K02 (deflated very low) in the stock spare location, and I'm still able to fit the LR trailer hitch.

    I do carry a portable smittybilt compressor with me though, and I've removed the rear exhaust plastic shield

    This is what I'm imagining then someone invites me to a trip and tells me halfway in "you might scratch up your truck today. You should consider adding plates...".

    Love the iKamper. Curious how you store it when not in use? I just don't have the room. GAP tool or similar I've wanted for a while but the $500 makes it a hard sell.

    I've ben out a few times in a completely stock 2008 LR3 HSE w/locker and on Pirelli Scorpion tires on the 19" wheels and managed fine. hasn't been a problem yet but I also don't want it to be going forward. Full size spare is tucked under but probably not the best location for it.

    To date, I have just left it on. it is not a DD and it 'just' fits in underground parking. They aren't difficult to remove and at 160lbs, not too tough to handle if you do think about taking it off tho.

    Alrighty then. I just hate to see people hung up on statements like “sliders are a must” to even get out on their first trip.

    It's been a while (hah) since I posted - it's good to see there are still LR3 owners active.
    2008 LR3 w/265/60/18 Hankook Dynapros - never been disapointed.

    I really like Duratrac LT275/65r18 for mixed driving. FYI - The sidewalls are too thin for airing down this heavy pig <25psi. My list:

    1) M/T or aggressive A/T Tires
    2) Rock sliders
    3) Sump guard
    4) Gap tool

    Have fun! Dont wheel by yourself.
