    Default New From Boston MA

    Hey all, recently found this forum through a friend and really love it. I drive a 98 Land Rover Discovery on 35s, locked front and rear, 4.43 gears, HD axle shafts and CVs, rock krawler shocks, the works. Currently in Waltham MA and work at the local Land Rover dealership in Sudbury MA as a mechanic. Been to multiple off road events over the past couple years, so not particularly new, but I want to make off roading more consistent in my life which it isn't right now. Really stoked to get more seat time in my truck off road and to push it to its limit. Going to keep an eye out for moderate to hard runs for sure and look forward to meeting members of the forum on the trail. Thanks

    Tom

    Cool

    Hello and welcome!
    Really nice truck you have there :)
    Traction, articulation, and gearing make a good off-road rig. Just a big lift, wide mud tires, and a winch simply do not ;)

    Ran the 15" rim version of that size on my Cherokee and loved the better(for a SS) road manner, while still being a Swamper off-road :)

    Welcome! Always good to have another Landie owner here. I currently have a 2006 LR3 (known round here as The Rolling Living Room) and a 2001 Disco 2 (aka The Black Widow).

    The RLR has been retired from wheeling as she's a bit pricey to fix. The Widow is currently in the shop (she had a drinking problem) but she should be back in the spring.
