    Where the hell do you get your information :lol3? The pedal boxes aren't handed.

    Sharp 130. A close friend has one in transit, currently configured as a box truck, that we'll be converting to a crew cab.

    Neato, I'm moving to Tacoma in a couple months -- I'll have to come check you guys out.

    Any plans to bring in Td5s?

    Very risky.

    At the very minimum you'd need to remove both driveshafts.

    Got mine back this morning from having another oil leak fixed. I couldn't see where it was from and thought it was from behind one of the pulleys at the front so i booked it in while its still on warranty. Turns out it was just the rocker gasket:lol3
    We'll see.....

    Is the Evoque a real Landie?

    Find out here!



    I reckon it did okay for a girly-fashion-accessory mini-SUV.

    I bought an Evoque back in July and I really do enjoy it, especially the 27 mpg hwy. This is my 3rd Rover product and I have been more than happy with all of them, although I doubt that this one will go up Poison Spider Mesa like the others have. The local dealer has trips to Wind-Rock so I'll join them and see how it does in the mud. There is even a button to push for that.

    I thought so too chap - can think of plenty of other 'SUVs' that would've had a tougher time...

    I wouldn't like to take my MB 4x4 up there for a start.

    And probably not the Shogun (Montero in USese) either.



















    Not without a Landie to tow me out when I needed it, anyway!

    :lol3
