    That Land Rover has some good compression in the front. It actually flexes the IFS unlike our setups.

    Is it a solid rear or independent?

    Independent in the rear too.

    Once it's in off road height it links the air suspension on each axle side to side so if one side goes up, that pressure pushes the other down so it's like a solid axle.

    I love it, it's a great vehicle. The traction control in it is amazing, no one makes lockers for them bc they don't need them.

    But, it's size kind of dictates what trails you do, kind of like a 4 door JK. The KJ is easier to maneuver.

    The LR3 is truly the upscale choice over a KJ. They got it right! How reliable & repair costs HJ?
    Interesting to note that LR offered V-6 and V-8 versions!
    Overall the KJ for the budget minded consumer, offers a very solid ride off road once lifted.
    ah but which one has the best coffee holder when flexed ?? ha ha..:gr_grin:

    It's never left me stranded I guess, but it does has some quirks. Going into the shop for a new purge valve and solenoid next week, $400 plus labor. It's had some odd stuff replaced, like fuel level sensor, stuff that you'd never really think about. But with 150k it's still on the OE radiator, water pump, transmission (unlike the KJ). It needs lower control arm bushings too. Eats those like nothing. About every 50k miles.

    If I had to pick between it and the KJ, I'd pick the KJ. The KJ just works and has 95% of the comfort and it's purge valve doesn't cost $400. :D But the LR3 is great for road trips, way more room than the KJ. It gets up and goes a lot quicker than the KJ too.

    This goes back a ways - basically just the OME suspension upgrade, with stock wheels, no rock sliders & factory skids. But dang that was a fun trip!
