Default '06 RRS SC build "nameTBD"; the good stuff

Recently picked up this s/c'd Sport.
First item of business is taking care of some deferred maintenance items. Thankfully it was a Southwest rig, maintained at JLR dealerships.
Then we're going to have some fun with it.
Few teaser pics as to what's in store....

Thanks much for the warm welcome all! MUCH friendlier here than that "other" forum.

Forgot to mention initially that I really lucked out on finding this RRS; fully loaded (yes, the Supercharged's already are), but has the typical Active Cornering, Active Cruise(ACC)...but I jumped out of my pants when I ran the VIN decoder...it has the very rare Rear Axle Locking Diff #027CC option! Saves me money from fitting an ARB air locker.

Appreciated Barry at Compomotive UK's assurances with the OEM 4piston Brembo/14.2" rotor fitment under these 18x8 et44 (29lbs/ea) PD1881's. Here's before and after we rotated the phonic dampers(I had seen on other threads where guys removed them completely, which brought out some squeaking of course. No need to remove them, just rotate them 180deg as CompUK recommends!).




Already found that the 30mm EAS lift with the Autologic scan tool won't allow the tires to clear the leading/trailing edges of the ARB/rear bumper. Ugh. So, turned to Erik at Lucky8 for their strut lift kit (off-road version). Going to be installing it soon--stay tuned...
PS---also have a LLAMS kit en route from Australia. Buddy of mine is running it on his LR3 and swears by it, so with as much offroad driving I'll be doing, it made sense to spring for it too.

Thanks all. Will update as much as possible here.

User; ha, so you know Bryce at www.matrixintegrated.cc ? He's wrenching on the truck and is talented for sure!

Note that this is the ARB Summit for the '14-16 LR4 (some have thought from the first pic that it was the '05-09 LR3 bumper); updated larger foglights, clear foglight covers, and different cut on the bumper's "side wings" as an LR4's fender flare wraps further down to the ground (compare this with the the LR3 where the upper bumper side edge is straight as it travels towards the tire). So, fitting the ARB Summit from the LR4 to the requires custom metal "inserts" to be fabricated, which will take up the space between the side wing and fender. Now, also depending on the tire size, you may have to make other mods. Currently finding that the large 275/70/18(33.16") tires now fitted, are contacting the ARB's "side wings" where they face the front tires(near wheelwell liner) and ARB lower bumper shrouds. Ugh.

Got the 2 ARB Intensity LED lights on. Curious to see them at night.

That bumper is a BEAST!

What does that thing weigh?? Lets see a side an 3/4 angle shot with that and the tires on!

Waiting to hear back from ARB Tech Dept on listed weight. Their site no longer shows this data.

275/70/18 tires/Compomotive PD1881's are on. Experiencing some rubbing at full lock. Now Bryce says it's time for some slight trimming!

More pics of the bumper mounted up for sure. Awesome the truck has the factory rear locker. I never knew they were an option on the sports.
