    My new LR2

    Just picked up the LR2 over the weekend. After owning a 98 Jeep Wrangler, I'm blown away with my new 4x4. I know they are very different. It's just nice to be in a quite cabin for a change.

    Great looking little truck! That's my favorite color for the LR2. You're going to have fun with it - it'll be great in the snow. Bet your Wrangler didn't have seat heaters, either.

    Thanks everyone for the warm welcome. Really appreciate it.
    Let me know if I can be of any help to anyone. Never had a Land Rover before. My 98 Jeep Wrangler was terrible in the snow as it had no anti-lock brakes, no traction control. It slid very easy on wet roads even with excellent tires. It was great in mud and dirt offroad with the 4x4 on, so I'm looking forward to having what seems to be a great vehicle in the LR.

    Hopefully we will see more LR2 owners here in the future. I know they are new.
    Here is a recent article from the Boston Globe.
