-74f is beyond damn cold. I can't believe the tires and hoses didn't crack like glass

------ Follow up post added March 6th, 2014 09:43 AM ------

I'd also love to know more about their vehicle kit such as type of battery used, webasto or eberspacher, motor and gear oils used, etc.

Boost lovers rejoice! Perhaps they can be given honorary membership in the NYC Boost Club.

The "auxiliary heater" bit made me laugh

You need one at 32 degrees let alone -72 Bigger bonus points if they made it with the stock heater!

I've been out driving (not in our Defender), running around, and working in -55 before, and it wasn't any fun at all!! I can't imagine what -74 would be like...other than it'd really suck!!

We run regular dino oils in our work cars, and they amazingly keep going...Just takes a long time to get the temps up! We do plug in a engine heater and battery blanket when the temps get down below zero...

Man was not meant to go there...let alone machinery....let alone shoddy British manufacturing that doesn't work well in the most luxurious of confines!!!
