    This guy imports the Mudster kit. I contacted him a while ago. Can't remember the price though.

    I have installed the Mudster Black Bilstein reinforced, raised spring base shockers. The price was less than springs plus dampers.

    Now this is a door build nicely sound proofed. I was helping pull off the smash and grab that peeled back and wedged the window shut. It's from a Mazda 6. Besides the door card being sound insulated, the door had another liner of thick, flexible plastic with a double (side-by-side and back and front) insulator strip around the whole liner that was well bolted to the door frame. Note the main speaker is housed properly in this liner. Yes, that's the tweeter hanging down from the OEM component speaker. The wire hanging down on the lower left goes to the red door lens to let traffic know the door is potentially obstructing their way. Even the snaps didn't shear off and could be reused. That's the window motor just above the speaker and thus, easily accessible. Now compare that with our card and frame sans liner.

    Agreed - and mine is now probably as quiet for a fraction of the cost.

    1. Note/Read the action of 2WD dial setting!
    2. Note the ABS is "King" (last table). If activated it overules all other computer and human settings. Safety first!
    Apologies – only getting to this now.

    Thanks Gomario – I finally managed to read this.

    To me the key in 2WD is “But should the system detect massive slip from the front wheels, ‘AUTO’ is selected till normal traction is X-TRAIL-UK resumed.” As the front wheels are not slipping on the dyno, I'm not worried about this. On the dyno, the front tyres are always spinning, even at idle.

    Also, due to the weight of the rollers, ACC. fast (hard acceleration) is not achieved.

    How's the install going?

    My Duster currently has General Grabber GT's on 215/65/16. About halfway worn down (45000 km). I have been very happy with performance on and off road.

    But soon with winter approaching with lots of snow and ice forecasted for Lesotho I am considering a more aggressive tyre. Such as the General Grabber AT3. I drive to Lesotho, Kao mine, twice a month.

    From the brochure it gives good snow performance. Also want to increase size slightly to 215/70/16

    Comments on this tyre?

    thanks

    The Grabbers get good press so they should be a good bet.

    Those 275’s aren’t going to give you much more height. Maybe 10mm which isn’t a lot at all but you’ll also lose about 10 Nm of power, which doesn’t sound like a lot but every Nm helps on the small diesel motor.

    Traction is more important than height so I went 235/60. So the overall diameter was the same but with 10% more width, without any power loss, which is what I’d recommend

    Shame on you XJ for not mentioning the 1 kpl drop as well due to the extra width / friction. This might be a deal breaker for some.

    The 215/70/16 is about 3% taller (10.75mm). As the speedo, in my case, under reports by 3%, this tyre would give a true reading, but note there would be no slack if you are just over the speed limit and hoping that you were just under it as you pass by the camera.

    Your mileage should be 3% less with the 215/70 as well.

    AT tyres usually do well in snow.

    Here are two alternative tyre snow write-ups: https://tirereviewsandmore.com/hanko...apro-at2-rf11/ and https://www.fourwheeler.com/news/yokohama-x-at-review/

    Thanks, I will investigate the other options as well. Having a true speedo ready would suit me, though. I rarely exceed the speed limit, like to potter along at 110 to 115Km/hr.

    But the 10mm extra height isn't actually that important at the moment. So probably will stick with the original size.

    thanks for the responses

    The butt dyno probably wouldn't notice a 3% drop in torque.

    Going with the original size would result in them being less likely to rub the fender / wheel liner.

    Some don’t like that the armrest console interferes with the parking brake and gear shift lever, but that is your option. Some complain about the even worse dimensions and quality of aftermarket armrests. So, unfortunately, Renault may be your best choice.

    The world is running out of fuel, so it’s important to enjoy it whilst we still can.
