    Initially, I thought this doesn't make sense. "Beam axle"? "Proper multi-link rear axle"? Either I am totally behind on new techno definitions, or this journalist/media release got it wrong. All the...

    Discovery 4 Re: New battery

    IMHO: I don't think so. IIRC the D3/4 needs around 850 cold cranking amps (cca). Lead acids are pretty good at that. I don't see that spec stated anywhere for this battery.

    The other thing is the...

    Discovery 3 Re: What vehicle after a Landrover

    We have a D3 and a Fortuner. Have done extensive trips in both (though the recent longer ones: three times Malawi and once Tanzania) were in our Fortuner.

    Re: Discovery 4 stronger roof mounting points?

    BTW: did you break the bolt, or the mounting point? If its just the bolt, you can get it out with a bit of patience, and a small hammer and sharp chisel.

    Yes, it does replace the standard D3/4 rails. It looks like Frontrunner is selling everything together now: the "tray", plus the mount kit which bolts directly to the roof M6 threaded points. You...

    Re: Discovery 4 stronger roof mounting points?

    I agree, fit the Front Runner mounting kit. I think on a full length rack, there are four mounting points per side. Although they are only M6 bolts, as long as you keep them tight I have found that...
