Hey guys, new '12 RW crew max. Great truck! Wish it was better than 10-11mpg.

Been driving Rovers for the last 15 years, but needed at least 1 vehicle I can rely on. Traded in one of the rovers for my new tundra.

Just to clarify, my rovers aren't for the mall or soccer field. Lifted, locked and lookin for rocks.

Now I can say my rover will always make it home (even if it's behind the tundra on a trailer)!

Trailered it last year with my buddy's '11 tundra to Colorado. Even at 90mph, the tundra never acted like it had 6k lbs (not including trailer) behind it. If you've ever driven through Kansas, you understand why we were eager to hit the CO state line.

Cheers!

Welcome from Alabama. Your gas mileage should be better than that tho. Mine is 11mpg and I have a 6" lift with 35s

Welcome and congrats. Once you control the throttle and tame it you'll get 15-19 mpg, I rairly see less then 16mpg unless I am goofing off jumping on the gas.

That would be great.

The "go" pedal is definitely touchy! May see if there's a way to stiffen up the trigger a bit.

It takes some getting used to, so I wouldn't do anything to it. Eventually you'll get the feel for her and know exactly how hard you can push. :D

newer rovers have a push button 4x4. Jeep guys laugh at it, i think its cool....welcome
Yeah, not a fan of the newer models as "off road" vehicles.

My '95 has push buttons.... For the ARB lockers and winch controls.:D Not exactly factory options.

my buddy has an older land cruiser (boxed one) he put detroit air lockers, that thing can almost climb a straight wall.

Rover made the right business move, those go for atleast 60k compared to the jeeps 15k - 25k

The old Toyota Land Cruisers are very cool (70's FJ's)

The older Land Rover's; Discovery, Defender & Range Rover (my white truck in the pic) were built for off road.

Not much is anymore.
