That's very cool!

does anyone know what the air tank along the left outside frame rail is? Is that a reserve for air shocks or something like that?

I saw that in person at the LR Gwinnett here in Atlanta. It was very cool.

Drum brakes inside the disks? Possible parking brake? And what's the little motor thing and gears built into the diff's?
Cool, but very scary....

Can't view it (blocked at work), but it's probably for the air suspension.

The air tank is the reserve for the EAS system.

Yes, the drums are the parking brake - electrically operated via a switch on the center console.

The motor and gears are for the active locking differential.

I was actually inside that LR3 when I went to LR training in CA.

No belt driven drive shaft. I am not quite sure where you are talking about, but if you mean inside the Tcase, it is a chain. Yeah...I definitely would not want to get stuck on the trail with it though. (Actually I did once!) In their infinite wisdom they put the alternator really low on the engine, and I had it crap out on me in an LR3 after playing in the mud and water for a while.

In this pic it looks like the DS is gear driven:

Thats the diff though, not the Tcase.

BTW, FWIW the strange cylinder cut away in the bottom left of the pic is the Dynamic Stability Control sway bar/actuator.
