On that note I think we need a entire part of the forum dedicated to h2 and h3 bashing

I kinda like that one


On serious note. I've had the opportunitey to drive into ground both H1s and H2s. I have to say, for what they are, even H2s are VERY capable trucks. They arent as robust as they probably should be, so we managed to break one of the rear axles..while playing in texas canyon..but we were throwing them everything we had....and that's when the axle broke.

I think it is more the people who drive them more than anything, I don't like when people turn up their nose at you because they think their 60k vehicle is better. Or more importantly when someone tries to tell you a D90 is overrated while the H2 is underrated. At the end of the day, for all the plastic on a Range Rover Sport at least LR was honest about its intentions to build a on road 4x4 but keep the off road abilities. Hell, all in all the H2 and a RRS are nearly the same hunk of cash.

It is well time for LR to build the "back to our roots" sort of vehicle insiders have been hinting at.

Yeah, right. Ask any Series owner if their dreams of Land Rover producing a "real" 4x4 with "manly" leaf springs ever came true. We, my friends are the new series owners v LR/Ford will only do what makes the board and stockholders happy - which is sell vehicles no matter what design. And that design is going to be "emasculated" compared to previous designs. Is that a violin playing?

my girlfriend bought my cousins 2000 disco in jan. and now my cousin just bought a h3. i don't like it cuz the styling of the vehicle implys something other than what it actually is.
my favorite was when i was pulling off the trail to get back on the road to go home and a h2 drove by and then turned around, the d was covered in mud and looked beautifull! this dude was like what the hell is that? a d90 i say, wow!! cool wish i could go wheeling in this thing, i said go for it... i sat at the mouth of the trail and watched him inch in, he wa stuck in the first 20 feet, i laughed and was so tempted to leave his ass there but pulled him out instead, he bought me a few guinness so he was ok in my book...

Funny story in the new here in DC on Tuesday. A guy towing a backhoe hit a bridge and knocked some concrete onto the road. A couple of cars and a hummer ran over some of it and got stuck. I thought it funny that no matter which channel I flipped to they made a point of saying a hummer got stuck.

There is an H1 contingent that wheels with the Chicago Land Rover Club. H@ as well. Guess we're a more tolerant bunch. I personally do not like wheeling with them. They always whine about tight trails and pin striping. Finally told one of them off. I am voting this winter for LR's only on certain outings. I like wheeling with just about anybody, but it's getting ridiculous how many non _LRs are showing up.

Even wheeled with an LR3. He wheels it hard as well.
