So you are going to take the lr3? I'm sure you know not to go out on silly 19" rims and street tires unless you enjoy changing wheels on trail. May I suggest you get a nice 2nd set of 18's with proper tires for play trips such as this. You'll have more fun a lot more peace of mind. Otherwise, the lr3 is quite capable in stock form just watch out for rocks hitting the fuel tank, it isn't truly protected. Additionally, pull your spare out from underneath and tie it down in the cargo area if you don't have a rack. The center of gravity on the lr3 is actually pretty low for the type vehicle it is if the roof is empty. Mine, not so much.And ready to take the heat for moving over to the Brit !
