There are alot of horror stories about the zeus gears. Search yahoo, and you will come up with a couple of sites for expeditions that had problems with them. Do yourself a favor and just change the timing belt every 60,000 miles.

I know of the bad stuff on their early iterations because they used incorrect metals. They have fixed this, so they say.

Problem is the belt can fail much earlier than what LR says.

Yes, I am NOT installing these as they are NOT properly designed/manufactured for this purpose.
