Thanks! I have heard about the brakes etc. Are they covered under warranty? (Not the brakes of course but the other bits)

Yes I would like to see the bleeder valve as that will be swapped.

Not sure if the bleeder valve is the same on the LR3/4, but it's an easy change for the 3 at least.

I've got new LCA and brakes all the way around from when I bought it at the beginning of the year, but I've already got a small rattle/something a bit loose in the front end. I suspect it may be the sway bar bushings as those are also a known wear item and I don't see them listed in the service records. As for the brakes, even though they are al up to spec I cooked them good coming down Old Priest Grade a couple month ago. And that was with the truck in 2nd/not pushing it at all. Got me wondering about possible upgrades but I haven't looked into it yet.

Hi Chris,

Looking forward to seeing more photos of the new LR4. I am not sure if someone answered your question about the compressor, but Pedram meant that you need to use the bracket supplied by Tactical 4x4 to lift the compressor on 2012+ models. The previous compressor on pre-2012 models was a Hitachi and sat a bit higher. Once they moved to the AMK, it sits quite a bit lower. The good thing is that it seems to be a much more powerful compressor overall. Anyway, if you get the Tactical 4x4 slider you use their supplied bracket to lift the compressor and then you can fit the slider. Pedram and I did it and it wasn't bad at all. I will tell you though that you can hear the compressor running much more - so you will need to add some padding. I hope that helps!

So the dealer has called twice to say the truck is ready only to change that to it's not ready on the day we were supposed to go get it. So frustrating, especially since they have our $$ and we don't have our truck. They offered $500 in accessories (BS as we didn't need or want any). Finally after some negotiation to make up for everything they have given us the rear cargo barrier, rear cargo divider, and rear car seats. It helps ease the pain a bit. We have been told Thursday will be the day, we shall see.

I have my printer on speed dial to make a set of giant 'free Chris' truck!' banners that we can then attach to our Rovers while we drive in circles around the dealer's lot.

Just say when.

We've got your back!

If I was cool I'd start a hashtag for you. But I still think it's a pound sign, so I'm not cool like that.

I think the dealership is already a little afraid of me so increasing my numbers is awesome. I have already warned them that if the truck isn't ready tomorrow we want them to make the first payment along with all of the accessories etc. We shall see tomorrow.

Did you mention that you're a surgeon and know not only where all the good drugs are, but where all the not-so-good drug seeking patients who would do anything for a high are?

Looks good!

But I'm a little worried about the child-to-dog size ratio in that last pic. He looks like the freakin' Hound of the Baskervilles!
