  1. BW transfer case off road capabilities

    Range Rover Classic
    I just bought a '92 3.9 with a BW transfer case, hence with a viscous coupling. My off-road expert mechanic says if I have to do any decent off road I'll need a LT230 transfer case with a proper diff lock, as with the VC the moment I'll have one wheel off the ground I'll be stuck. I tend not to...
  2. Bishop's 1998 RR is back on the road

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    The 98 Range Rover is back on the road. I did not use the Blue Devil Head Gasket after all. I returned it to the store and got my money back the same week. I waited until I could find a more conclusive coolant leak. I replaced the orginal thermostat a few years back when the Rover overheated...

    Range Rover Evoque / L538
    Hello I got Evoque about 6 month ago and recently i have been paying more attention to noise . When i am on highway there is constant wind noise. I thought this car would have very little noise for expensive car lol.. bit disappointment tbh. I have bimmer and its more quite on highway then...
  4. 22" off road tires

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    My original set up with Cooper Zeon LTZ 305/40R22 and Stormer 22x10 +50 offset wheels. Had to use 10 mm hubcentric spacers on the front to clear the strut. Rear passenger wheel well was heat molded to clear the tire. No rubbing lock to lock, but would jam into the wheel well on large bumps. The...
  5. snow tire/M&S for Canadian road conditions

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Heading to Canada this coming week and checked their department of transportation site; they stated that a "snowflake or M+S" indicator is required at this time to comply with regard to their weather. I'd be hard pressed to have TG G2's or an AT tire? I'd hate for them to turn us around because...
  6. Road noise, cabin silence L494

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    Hello, I will buy the 2018 RRS next year, the V8SC 525 hp. I currently have the L320, do you know if the cabin noise of the L494 is more or less silent than theL320? I am a bit worried on this point since the smallest wheel size is 21' on the V8SC.... Thanks!
  7. Off Road & Rough Road Ride & Performance HSE vs Supercharged

    Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    Off Road & Rough Road Ride & Performance HSE vs Supercharged Friends, since relinquishing my L322 I have been restoring my old Classic GDE while searching for an L405 which like all my past Range Rovers will most likely spend much if not most of its time off road. I am wondering what people's...

  10. 2013 RRS HSE LUX winter/off road rims and tires

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    I would like to get the Cooper Zeon LTZs for this truck and I am not sure which tire size best fits my application. OEM is 275/40R20 and I was wondering if I could use 255/55R19 or I will experience rubbing? I will want these exclusively for winter and once a year in fall for off-roading.
  11. 01 HSE Spongy/rough road code and Dash lights

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Hello again everyone and thank you in advance for any help or advice. I understand this topic is very common the forum, but I am still having trouble with my brakes When I was driving the 2001 HSE range rover on the bump-stops to a garage about 5 miles away to have the coil conversion put on...
  12. Road trip in new 2017 LWB SC

    Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    Drove from Houston, TX to Santa Fe, NM earlier this week and will drive back to Houston tomorrow. Should be totally broken-in by the time we get home. Random thoughts/observations: what an incredible ride! Much better than any BMW I've owned (so glad to get away from run-flats) and even better...

  14. What's the Normal Time for the EAS to Adjust to Road Height?

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    I suppose this would vary, depending on temperature, how long last driven, etc, etc, etc... Anyway, I just recovered from my Rangie having a heart attack and then dropping down to the bump stops displaying the dreaded "Slow 55km" display on the message panel with the obnoxious orange picture of...

  16. Trans Failsafe Prog Message on my 2004. Road trip?

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    So I've started getting the Trans Failsafe Prog warning and I had it checked out and it came back that the cause was the Transfer Case Shift Motor. It's very intermittent. I can go for a week with no error message and then have it happen 3 times in one day. I realize from reading other posts...
  17. L322 tyre choices for off road?

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Sorry if this has been asked a million times but a quick search on here has not helped. I have a 09 L322 and have both 19 and 20" rims to choose from and need the best possible tyres for off road, particularly mud and grass, and also a fair bit of road driving ? I'm a wheelchair user so can't...
  18. off road seats

    Range Rover Classic
    I need to replace my 93 lwb stock front seats with seats that are 5 point harness compatible. Does anyone know of any aftermarket seats that are direct bolt In for a RRC. Has anyone done this to theirs? Will I need to fab new mounts? Heated and power seats not required.
  19. Off Road Montebello

    Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    Spent the Sunday at Land Rover's off road facility in Montebello, Quebec. Absolutely amazing what these cars are capable of. I never owned a car with two locking differentials - makes all the difference in the world. That beats my good old Jeep of 25 years and my MY13 Range Rover Sport by a...
