Some people can be so rude. Of course, if I knew I was using the hose after this LR4:

That would be Don in an LR4.

I like it. Don, when are you trading in for an LR4? ::blink1:: No wait, Don is smitten over Defenders right now...

Like me, I think Don is eagerly awaiting the new Defender. I am so curious to see what they release in the states.

I'm on double secret lock-down and explicitly prohibited from buying any more toys until I get rid of some of the ones I don't use now.

As for my next Rover purchase, right now I'd have to say a RRC is the most likely. I love the look of the D90, but I know I don't really want to spend Defender money on what would become a rock-crawler.

As for the much-anticipated forthcoming Defender, I love to speculate but the honest truth is I'm probably more likely a used-truck buyer. I'd be scared to properly wheel something I had a payment on!

I suffer from automotive ADD anyway. I want a D90! No wait, I want a RRC! No wait, I want a new Defender! No wait, I want more toys for my LR3!

Ah, so that's why the sudden interest in expanding the roof rack!

Hey David;

I usually throw mine up on the roof rack; the relative weight makes it reasonably easy to get down and use, but acknowledge that I have a taller height profile on the RRC than you do on your LR4 (or at least I rarely see you load a lot of stuff on top.) due to jerry cans and Pelican boxes. Assuming you got the turnkey Portable box, the tank built into the box does takes up a lot of space, but I really like the convenience of having the whole thing in a solid weather-resistant box.

Sort of, but I can actually fit the compressor in the truck. My main reason for expanding the roof rack is that I often have BOTH BIG dogs and I need more room for things like clothes, lighter gear, and boxes of food. Since the dogs take up most of the back, I have barely any room to stuff some of the lighter options. Once I get my spare tire off the roof, I'll have more room. Even if I could fit my second Pelican case up there, that would be good! I can store a lot of what I need in that second case, which doesn't currently fit up there with the spare tire.

We have the same one and that is my plan - at least when I need more room in the cargo area. If I could get my second Pelican case up there, I'd have more room and possibly expand my rack out over my sun roof (that's good 4' x 2.5' of wasted space). I agree, the compressor box is very nice.

I have the 2 big ones, but I want a third :-) Right now I have my spare tire on the roof (it does not fit underneath the truck, nor do I want it there) so I had to take one Pelican box down. One box I have lots of supplies and the other was used for other things as needed and worked quite well. I guess this makes me want a spare tire swing away really bad :-)

I don't think your pelican cases are huge..... I own a few huge cases. Let's just say you can fit inside one all by yourself. Some club members know what I'm taking about. I used to be able to put three of them on my disco when I had my rack. But now I have only my trailer. Which maybe will fit one and some smaller cases.

I missed the part about the BIG dogs. Clearly they would need a lot of food. Because I've always heard it said the Big Dogs Gotta Eat.

No, they are definitely not the biggest sized cases, which is why it is optimal that I have 2. I don't really have room for anything bigger.

Yes, they are what take up my entire back seat and most of the cargo area - ugh.

I think they are more "long" than "big" ;-). They take up a lot of space even when coiled 😊

Hey,

Trying to help you get those requested parts although your inbox is full.


On a side note to any admins

What would I need to be able to get admin to fix minor issues such as the low pm box count / touch up the site? I was discussing on re designing it although I think with a few hours of TLC we could easily add / fix some things that the forum is missing.
