Buddy of mine loves them, but there more of a status symbol to him. I don't think he'd ever take it offroad. I'd take 2, Jeeps over a rover anyday.

I love the rovers. We had one on a trail ride up in Rochester, Ny one time. That thing kept up with us just fine, and it was stock. Solid axles :thumbsup:

Hope you're not planning to tow the XJ like you suggested in the other thread. Okay, the LR is bigger & maybe heavier than the FJ, and it is a V8. A respectable 7700 lbs tow limit, but just because they say you can, doesn't mean you should, LOL. Cons: unibody. Smaller V8 (4.6L? Way too small for my liking). But for ATV's, bikes and the like, it'll do just fine.

But if you're watching funds, isn't this a little expensive to mantain? What's wrong with a less expensive Ford, Chebby or Dodge?

If you want something to with and DD, why not a Tahoe/Yukon or Suburban/Yukon XL.

A guy in my club just got a 2001 Yukon XL 2500, fully loaded for like 5 grand. His wife DD's it and he tows with it when he wheels.

Gas mileage is similar between the Rover and the ones I mentioned. And parts are cheaper if you stay domestic.

Significantly cheaper parts going that route, it would be a night and day difference.

My point exactly ... plus they'd tow better.
