    Love the look of this.

    Lots of questions for JLRA after playing around with the online builder last night.

    Have sent them to dealer and awaiting response.

    The 6cyl engine must have bigger brakes.

    Tow receiver is an option not seen in UK configurator so I reckon a 350kg ball weight will be forthcoming.
    This is the same as my D4; handbook states 150kg but an extra Aus section covers the increase to 350kg

    Winch not shown as an option but a winch accessory pack is there.
    I think this means it will be something that comes later.

    Hard to know if the Terrain Response 2 package is worth it compared to standard Terrain Response.
    Rear ediff is a selectable option, so I guess that combined with standard TR will be the go.

    The "bullbar" seems to be offered for Aus only and looks pathetic.
    Not a show-stopper for me.

    Some of the other accessories look cool but I suspect will be very expensive especially if UK prices are anything to go by.

    Overall I'm confident that one will replace my D4 in a few years.

    Cheers,

    Cheers, good info

    I didn't notice a bullbar last night?

    Was it the Tube bar or the A frame plastic type?

    Tubular but very spindly without a solid steel element at bumper level.

    This is cool!

    So configurable terrain response is the go.

    Interesting. I have been wondering what you get with the TR2 and whether it's worth it compared to standard TR combined with a rear ediff.
    In the end it'll depend on cost because I believe standard TR with an ediff will be pretty much unstoppable.

    Some things on my mind:

    -what's the "portable rinse system"
    -"integrated air compressor" sounds OK
    -does it come with a centre diff lock, or is it through the brakes? Would be nice for centre and rear like D4

    Cheers
    Lucas
