    08 lr3 tire pressure light on service tire pressure monitor on dash

    It's been a while, but basically finding the correct TPMS CCF option - and select "not fitted" very straightforward and in case anyone wants help justifying the GAP tool . . . $85 per sensor x4 = almost 70% the price of the tool then program yourself a spare $25 ebay key with it, and you're...

    LR3 Questions

    Best vehicle purchase I have ever made. I do all my own service/repairs. LR specific forums are a wealth of pre-purchase info, post-purchase how-to, and "been there fixed that". Besides the info above, buy one from a DRY CLIMATE. I truly believe un-addressed water leaks, and rust/rot are the...

    LR3 tires

    X4 for the Falken. 265/60R18 XL specifically. Full size spare will fit underneath easily in this size. You really should have XL rating (or higher) for the LR3, regardless of the brand you choose. I have over 50k on mine, and still going! I do a 5-tire rotation every 5k miles. They are snow...

    What are the strongest 5/8" hitch pins for recovery use?

    Mine weighs over 6300lb empty, some get north of 7500lb. I appreciate the words of caution, always good to be safe! Here is a pic of the LR3 rear point (someone painted theirs yellow - which more clearly shows it's beefiness)

    What are the strongest 5/8" hitch pins for recovery use?

    I agree that insert is the way to go for hitch recovery. I am glad to have a factory recovery point F/R, to use w/ my 7/8" D-ring shackles.

    What are the strongest 5/8" hitch pins for recovery use?

    Maybe someone mentioned but I missed it . . . Isn't a huge advantage of the hitch pin method, the elimination of a large, heavy projectile? Use a good pin, throw a blanket/damper over the strap, and keep your distance.

    Wavian vs Vevor Jerry Cans

    My only experience with VEVOR was horrific. Shockingly terrible product. I was embarrassed for them. I will never buy anything from them again, and recommend others do not.

    Stink in stored duffles, best way to get rid of bad odors?

    LR3 Tie Rods. Recommended replacement options?

    A few things here . . . no, tie rods should not go every 25k miles I have had my LR3 for almost 60k and never done mine. In fact, I am only just now needing to do the LCAs I have heard mixed opinions on L8 items - some brands are unknown or undisclosed until you get them Maybe this is...
