    Any l494 owners go off-road?

    Hi guys, Ive only recently bought my l494. I can't seem to find any active forums for it. This forum seems very quiet and Facebook only has boy racer groups.

    Looking to chat with owners that do some offroading in their RRS.

    Hi ,
    I have only had mine since about October last year, I took it up the Watagan forest road a couple of weeks back, went well. The road is rutted in uphill and downhill sections, but good in the flats, the road gets a lot of use from dirt-bikers. Only OR1 height required (lower offroad height, hope I have that the right way around) , not OR2. Would love to do more but don't get much time for it at the moment.

    Also tow a Jayco Expanda pop-top caravan now and then.
    Yes this site seems fairly quiet. You will find more useful RRS info on the rrsport.co.uk forum in the General L494 section, but not necessarily much off-roading on there. Also rangerovers.net in US sometimes has interesting info .

    Cheers Greg. There's some serious tracks in the watagans. If you get any more pics for future I'd love to see them.

    I'll get onto those UK and US sites for a look.

    I don't have an L494 but if you need someone to head out with I'm around the central coast Any l494 owners go off-road?

    I have been 4wd with an L494 but unfortunately it was a non-low range model and the gearbox overheated not long in. Was smoother than my old D3 through wombat holes though, even without low range.

    I wonder who that was....

    Yep, forget any low speed off road work if you only have high range - too much slip in the torque converter.

    Customer hat on ..... roughly what $ and who can fit it (well) not too far from me? Although I must add, it is unlikely to get a guernsey at this stage, maybe in a year or 2. swmbo is still getting over the shock of the car $.

    PM sent. You could also ask Davis Performance Landys for a price incl fitting.

    Thanks Graeme,
    I'll certainly be aiming for one at some point - maybe when swmbo isn't looking
