    Ran into this from our tour of the country in 2001-2. Death Valley. I took the Rover on a fairly fast run from the main campground there to this spot. Loosened an Exhaust>Cat bolt doing the run. LR Las Vegas tried to sell me a complete new manifold. I had to tell him to just tighten the bolt. Ten years later, the bolt is still holding. Go figure.

    It was a great couple of hours doing this Just me, my Rover, and the dirt road.

    Looks like some of the things we stumble past every year while doing the GBES Navigational Rally (in Northern Nevada). I love the adventure as you never know what you'll find - like here at Crankshaft Crossing!

    By the way, my D1 was loose when I got it and not long after I tightened all the bolts so I replaced all the studs/nuts and haven't had a problem since.
