Exclamation Help Needed in Jacksonville, NC/Willmington area

Hey, Guys:
On vacation with my family and have an off road camper that has DI wheel studs on it. Lost a wheel/tire yesterday (Sunday October 5th) and luckily no one was hurt, killed and minimal damage to trailer.
I am in need right away of a DI era brake hub with studs or a set of studs. The tire store here says their last adventure with Land Rover took 4 days to get a simple brake part.
I am stuck in a hotel in Jacksonville, NC with my wife and two kids and supposed to be camping on Cape Lookout right now.
Any assistance from the Rover Underground would be most helpful.
Thanks guys.
Dendy


PS: I can be reached - 615-498-6564 phone or text -

There are several in the area. This will be the one of the closest. Most of the rovers are in wilmington but there are a few scattered around here. Haven't been to the junk yard hunting for any rover parts yet.

I just sent you a text if you need help navigating the area.

Isn't Shayne or Safari HP in JAX?

Must have been a scary moment. Hope you had clean underwear!

On the bright side you got to experience J-Action-Ville in all it's trailer park, tattoo parlor, and strip club glory.

It was determined that the current studs were salvageable and that I could continue on with 4 studs on one side of the trailer versus the normal 5.
It was determined by the tire shop (great guys and the tech that worked on my truck was from the UK and grew up working on rovers- super helpful guy) that the Defender/DI/Classic studs I have on the trailer are the normal version and that a long version is available by special order, so I am ordering those studs and replacing all so I don't have this issue going forward.

I found Jacksonville to be ok, some of the areas between J-ville and Wilmington ... not so much

Thanks guys.

I'm glad you were able to find assistance. I grew up in J-ville and agree there's nothing on 17 between J-ville and Wilmington. You should have detoured to Topsail Island, on the coast.

There is more than there used to be in that stretch between Wilmington and J' ville. One has to venture off NC 24 to find anything worthwhile at least until you hit Swansboro. Have to find that Shop. It's a long drive to Wilmington to get some rover love.
