    Ah, not bypass a bad sensor per se, but bypassing the whole system. Makes sense.

    I’m not sure who this one was directed at. If it was me, I run 265/70/18 Cooper S/T Maxx. According to Cooper they’re 32.87” overall diameter. I have about an 1”-1 1/4” of height added via the Gap tool and had it aligned at that height. I had to flatten the pinch seam in the rear wheel wells and...

    You could replace all the airbags and the compressor for a little more than the HD kit with the 2” lift. The lines are plastic and from all I can tell very robust. That leaves 3 air valves and 4 wheel sensors. It’s not a complicated system once you wrap your head around it and I t’s light years...

    When is enough really enough?

    I do agree with the philosophy of the cost of repairs exceeds the value replace it WITH caveats. My example is my wife’s XC90 V8 Sport. It had a timing cover oil leak and then developed a pretty significant rear main seal leak. It was rare model and in terrific shape for a 12 year old vehicle...

    Why do you want to covert to coils? I researched this when I became frustrated that 2 aftermarket compressors failed one after the other. Then I figured out aftermarket compressors are junk. I my opinion you lose too much going to coils. With the EAS you get: great ride quality, ride height is...

    Which tablet or Laptop?

    Is there a OBD2 dongle that’s Apple approved? I used torque back in the day when I had an Android, when I switched there wasn’t a single approved for iOS.

    Which tablet or Laptop?

    Won’t a cheap laptop off craigslist or the local classifieds fit the bill for HAM programming and diagnostics? I picked up a laptop to run the Volkswagen Audi Group diagnostics for $50. I can’t imagine trying to mount a laptop in my vehicle for nav purposes. People do it, but I wouldn’t work...

    Four 1/2” grade 8 bolts with heavy flat washers, I don’t recall the length though.

    Yeah, that’s why I said normally. I had a 25% off coupon. Does anyone ever pay “full price” at harbor freight?

    Same here, 4-500 for a hidden winch mount when a lucky 8 bumper is $800? If I ever get done paying for college and weddings I’ll replace the bumper, but until then this works great.

    It’s the “universal channel winch mount”, normally runs $50.

    Which tablet or Laptop?

    I don’t know why it works for me and not you, I’ve done nothing special. I’m guessing my version of Gaia is old enough I don’t have an issue, it’s been on there for quite some time. It may very well be I couldn’t install it today. You’re acting like ending support for old hardware is exclusive...

    Which tablet or Laptop?

    Beats me, I have had soooo much less trouble with apple products. I used to build my own home theater PCs and it was a constant battle to keep it working and virus free. Not to mention the hoops you had to jump through to network it to anything else. My iMac I bought used and it never fails. I...

    I wasn’t trying to convince you to switch, I was offering a counter point to the low value you placed on Apple products.

    Which tablet or Laptop?

    Yeah, the cost of Apple products is always brought up by non-Apple users, including me once upon a time. The thing is, they just plain work. I used to be an windows/android user and got sick of the constant fiddling to keep it to working right. Our home computer is a 10 year old iMac, running...

    SOLD M100 Forsale with tent 1600.00

    I'm glad someone picked this up. If it hadn't been all the way across the country from me I'd have grabbed it myself!

    Thanks, I'd be interested to hear your price. I'd never consider one new, they're stupid expensive and it's cheaper (and a better option for me) to buy a voyager racks carrier.

    I'm kinda digging up an old thread here, but... What is the spare tire carrier you've got in the pics? I need to get my spare off my roof, but don't want to spend the coin on a $900 carrier or $2200 bumper for my LR3. Stupid wedding I have to pay for. :rage::confused::blush:

    Here’s a few more pics. The release lever access is a little tight, but it works.

    Yeah, there’s a write up on one of the Rover specific forums on an LR4, but it’s pretty much the same. I cut out the center section of the factory inner bumper and attached the harbor freight tray in it’s place. I had to mod the outer cover a little, but it’s all inside or very low and not...
