Says the guy from California. Things out here rust, even worse up North. And I prefer the chrome look for my balls. Though I hear the new teflon coating is good too.

When are you going to realize that you drive a trailer queen in the desert?

Your experience with many things is totally different that the majority of rover owners. Your rig would be trashed in a year if it got road and trail driven in the North East, rusted up, seized heims, wouldn't even start without glow plugs. I think it is a very cool buggy and all, but you need to realize that your rover experience is the exception.

I spent 19 years in WA state. My truck spent the first 10 years of its life in Germany and the next two in Chicago.

The bulkhead was rusted, nothing else. The heim thing is totally wrong but I won't go into that. The rover community's fascination with Galvy is still just wierd. Sorry, you guys are in love with seeing if you can galvy everything on the rig. It's odd.

I could see the bulkhead and frame, sorta. But there are threads now on axles, doors, balls, ect. It's WIERD. And owners of other rigs don't do it.

The bottom line is to each his/her own. I would want a galvanize chassis and shock tower cones; the rest would be treated with rust resistant coating

Dude, I'm from Washington state, shit don't rust up there. We don't salt the roads like they do here in NY and the North East. This place sux, its makes all my pretty galv get a nasty white oxide on it.

Jim- better to get a white oxide on galvy than to get an red-orange oxide on painted mild steel!



Personally I think they should have had galvy frames factory (the extra cost to LR would have been pretty inconsequential) and once they go all over the world and get worked like they should, ridden hard and put up wet so to speak- then they should get overhauled and sent to SoCal, or Florida for retirement.
