Sending BK some love!
Know what you are talking about! Despite thier "Quirks" have never heard of another vehicle that will get you out of some of the tight spots that the Rover will! Just utilized the "limp home" feature on our Discovery 3 (AKA LR3) to get us into cell coverage from a trail in Death Valley last week...and WOW it just kept going and going and going even after being slammed down on top of a boulder! I was amazed!

RR are Junk!!
I had a 2009 S/C sold it with 2000 miles on it.
Heater stopped-rear window never worked-radio had a mind or it's own-LOUD whine from front axle. Enough is enough!!!
One last bitch, lost 20 grand on it.

Sorry to hear that. I was looking at an HSE last winter but after reading many reviews, and them constantly being ranked the worst SUV on the market I stayed far away. Hope the next choice works out much better for you.Events throughout ones life don't build character, they reveal it.

The only pic you had was the last one: some LR driving on a paved mountain path.
I thought the G-class was among the best off-road cars with its 3 differentials. I have to say that ground clearance is not the best, especially the 55 with its side exhaust pipes.
The soccer mom thing is pretty relative: here soccer moms drive LRs (good luck seeing a G-class) and I'd bet only 1 out of 10 has seen a rock bigger than a tennis ball from close.

LOL! Guess it does look paved in that pic, it is actuallly "paved" with boulders from rock slides You basically have to have an extended lift and rock crawler tires to make it to any of the old gold mines in that area (Death Valley, Ballaret) There are several old mines (OHV & 4x4 access roads) out there as well as some cool ghost towns but no cell coverage and even out satelite (SPOT) tracker was not responding. We would have have a long 50 miles hiking through Death Valley at night without that "limited access, limp home, mode" we were down on the bumpstops (think lo-rider) fther ramming the air compressor into a boulder almost as large as the truck! We did scrape up the tires on the wheel well but it got us into a cell coverage area and THATS what counted! Briggs was an old mine in the days of the original gold rushand thereare still mines, ghost towns and WILD BURROS all in the area!
