    Maybe not. Why should it hsve a diff with oil? Just the two sidedhafts will ne required to locate the wheel bearings.

    well - must be true. Since 80% of LR are still on the road. The others have reached their destination

    as with many other people - I own a T. But still lust a Landy

    Truth!

    I've never (yet ) managed to rock up at a braai with a stripper,

    but I've often managed (not ) to rock up at a braai with my Defenders....
