I have had only a few issues...the front CV joints...one boot failed and even after it was replaced it blew the bearings...front exhaust boxes and catalytics that rattle (usually can hit them with a rubber mallet to hear the rattle or drive a nice bumpy road....also the passenger side (which also controls the rear) climate...if you run with the AC on listen for a balloon type sound at the drivers A-post....they are two independent systems and shows a leak somewhere, but usually in that valve assy near the drivers firewall...lastly inspect the suspension airbags for any damage (even branches that may have hit them)...when one fails it can be a few $$...overall I have been very happy with this RR over the past few model years...

Not sure how much snow you get in Arkansas, but rims are CHEAP...so many people upgraded so stock 19's are everywhere...I put snows (Nokiens)...the RR will go through anything...I also run Hankook's everyday...

Nice. I like to watch prices on the 2007's. Wish I could wave a magic wand & have one of those sc'd Jag motors in my D. 400hp?

Short story long:

Taking the RR on its maiden voyage to SD for pheasant hunting. Going to be an LR3 and RR convoy...

I need a roof rack for storage, or a good bar/box combo. I've searched the RR forums, which didn't reap much good advice.

I know several members here have similar rigs... Any better options from members' experience?

I've seen the Rhino racks, Roversnorth, and voyager options.

Thanks in advance!

Jay
