rldc2000 - those are actually two Ls, his online presence is geared more toward Land Rovers but he is very responsive to emails just remember the time difference and I don't believe there has been much change to the Quadralift system from the 13 to 15 model years.

Your best bet is to just email Graeme himself - kits@llams.com.au

I honestly wasn't trying to make a sales pitch, (i.e. no mention of our products, or links to the website, etc.). I linked to our YouTube videos, because they are the only videos I have of me off-road in my WK2.
"No worries", Bill. Your videos were very useful to the subject at hand, so thanks for speaking up.

Your editing issue is that members can only make changes/edits for a short period of time...this is to protect the forum content so things don't suddenly "not make sense". Moderators can edit if need be for an infinite time period.

So do you not have the locking diff? I just got myself a new (used) Laredo-E with the 4x4 all time and was interested in how it worked. The altitude is the same right?

That's awesome. I was looking at getting a drone to get some aerial shots why 4wheelin. Which Phantom do you have? I've been tempted by the 4, but that price... So I'm looking at the 3 Pro.

Re: Show & tell - wk2 photos off roading "proof"

Just some shots from camping this last Memorial Day weekend. Gravel/dirt roads and then a muddy rutted forest service road for the last bit. Nothing super serious, but we made good use of the "off-road 2" air suspension height setting through several sections, had to lower to "park/exit" air suspension height to get under a tree hanging over the road (try that with a simple lift!), and used low range on several of the very steep rocky sections of "road".

The weekend prior, we were up in the hills in northern Nevada with several stream crossings with very steep approaches/departures. The off-road 2 suspension setting kept us from scraping either end, even with our hitch cargo carrier.

It's silly to think I even considered a Ford Explorer as an alternative. This is way more fun and capable.

What hitch cargo carrier do you have? Where did you purchase? I went camping last weekend and quickly realized the jeep is little inside

Highly recommend, based on 5 years camping use on my previous '03 Ram 1500, the StowAway2. web - stowaway2.com . Tigard, Oregon & USA manufactured there in Tigard !
Oregon has no sales tax, so IF you can drive their they will be happy to take care of you in person; just back up to the garage door !
They offer 2 Boxes and one Carrier style on a Fixed or Swing Away Frame.

I had the Steel Carrier on the Swing Away for easy access to the rear of the truck with tailgate down and Canopy up!

Shipping for any of these by any manufacturer can get "pricy" and at the time living across the River in Washington, I took full advantage, drove down and had them put together and install right there in Tigard !

Only regret ? Selling IT to the guy who bought my truck 11 months ago . . . and now that I have my '16 Recon G.C. Laredo w/ORA1 I will eventually - next time thru Portland area - be buying the Same Rig. It will carry my tent, raft, and some other camping supplies, all securely covered in a Coated Wire Mess Cover secured with a padlock on each corner ! When swung 90 degrees and gear removed it can become anything you want; table top for cooking . . . ?

Good shopping to you . . . hope this helped.


ps; for the "curious" onlookers in other threads (I hear!), I've recently turned 65 (1st S.S. check received, ha ha), but still manage to Get Out Their - my new "friend - Lymphoma" has not been "bad-ass" so far and still in the "observation stage" - Ha, what ever the heck that's supposed to mean ! The VA never was one for being "proactive" !

So, there you have it seems I've "let the cat out of the bag" . . . . . for those who care, thank you, and for those that don't, well frankly neither do I !

However, PEACE to all .

I have the aluminum unit from Northern Tool ... actually purchased it while on vacation to "lower the pile" in the back.

Wardo, it took me awhile to dig out a "real" photo (2009), snap a digital
e-mailable sized photo, but perhaps this will inspire you to just "get out their" too ! Hopefully in a few months I will have the 75th G.C. "Out Their" too and will "show it off" HERE in my 'Show & Tell off-road / Camping' thread .

the 'Originator' of Jeep Garage once said, "This thread was awesome and would never die" ! Was skeptical (still am by nature) but was delighted that after a long absence it came "to life," partly thanks to You ! Your Question probably was better served in a more suitable thread though ? THIS One WAS more intended to be a "Show & Tell" NOT like the others, in the sense that the "others" tend to be Mudfests or Hardcore Rock Climbing etc. ! IF you read the first couple posts the intent would be clearer. But, things have a way of morphing around here, so, it is what it is these days and I haven't got it in me anymore to "complain" . . . wouldn't do any good as folks tend to have their "opinions" . . . . . . . again Wardo, your welcome & if you get one of these I KNOW you WILL enjoy ! To ALL, Peace. No more room in my day for anger or being upset by "words" mis-spoken !

edit - sorry, looks like I just don't have a clue how to get a photo on here, let me do some "research"
