  1. Stuck in Snow, RRS wont start.. just turned off - Help

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Hoping for some help. Its about 10 degrees outside, I'm in a 15 degree angle facing down hill as I'm stuck in a driveway due to snow. Had the RRS idling while I was putting on snow chains. Once I got the chains on, the car just turned off on its own. I went to start it, but it just cranks...
  2. Front Skid Plate Came Off in the Snow!

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    I have a 2014 RRS V8 Supercharged and was in Tahoe yesterday for the blizzard - 37 inches of wet Sierra cement in 24 hours. First, the RRS with the Cooper ATP handles great in the snow. I know it is not as good as official snow tires but I was petty happy - it felt like a tank. Anyway, I...
  3. Snow Wheeling the Rubicon

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    NCLR (Norcal Land Rover Club) did some snow wheeling this weekend on the Rubicon. Didn't get more than a mile but still had a great time. My winch got a workout as it was very slick and there were some big obstacles. Stayed warm in my roof top tent but it dumped on us overnight. Overall, a...
  4. Snow chains in CA

    Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    I spent most of my adult life living in the northeast and skiing in VT/NH and never had to deal with chains. Heck, at one time I used to drive to VT every winter weekend in a sports car with summer tires! We live in CA now, which we all know is a "special" place :roll: `) and they require snow...
  5. Another Snow Chain thread :)

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    I've read several snow chain threads here in the forum but I a different question. Does anyone (preferably in the US) have experience/recommendations for heavy duty chains like Ottinger what can also be used in mud? I've been eyeing some online but I'm not really seeing any good local resources.

  12. Snow Tires & Rims for 2015 RRS HSE

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    Hello to all, new to the forum. Just took delivery of 2015 RRS HSE, Santorini Black with 22" Style 504 rims. These rims look spectacular on the car but I'm guessing they might be a little tricky in the winter. I'm in New England and want to be comfortable knowing I've got the best footprint...
  13. L405 Having Fun in Snow and Ice

    Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    We got 10" of snow yesterday and I thought I would post a video of the roads I drive on my daily commute. The roads are dirt and there are some decent hills. The video doesn't show how steep they are very well, but the RR handles them fine. Unfortunately, I did not have my camera when I drove...

  15. Getting stuck in 10" of snow ?

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    We got about a foot of snow here in Chicago over the weekend. I live on a narrow street with not much room to gain momentum and plow through the snow since I have to avoid sliding into parked cars While backing out of my short driveway, I got stuck in about 10" of snow. I tried all different...

  18. 2008 RR Keeps Defaulting to Snow Mode

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Has anyone ever had this problem? Suddenly my 2008 RR keeps defaulting to snow terrain mode. I turned it on snow terrain yesterday morning, and then later on turned it off. Yet, every time I turn the truck back on, it is in snow mode -- even though i have turned it off in normal mode. I just...
  19. Snow plow

    Range Rover Classic
    Has anyone ever mounted a snowplow to a Classic? If so, would be interested in feedback on brand, performance. Just asking, seems like it would work at least as well as a Jeep, and be a lot more comfortable than using my old tractor.
