2019 Range Rovers Will Be Easier to Drive in Water

The real big news about the 2019 Land Rover Range Rover and Range Rover Sport is the introduction of the P400e plug-in hybrid trim, which can apparently drive 31 miles on its battery alone. Both SUVs get a few other little updates for the new model year but a water wading depth sensor sounds like the most fun.

I wanted 6 link, but no room. It will be a triangle, with 2 in rear. I will post pics when one is finished.

based on the photo unto itself i would have to ask if your shooting for a 5 link or 6? i ask because it looks like theres an upper and lower on the back side. so it will be an L shape then rather than a triangle as far as placement?  i like the sleeve idea and i get it as you purchsed the aluminum carriers rather than steel so nice idea to continue using them. i do have 4 multi link box's still. it would be easy enough to mod for a 5 link but they are currently set up for 6 link. easy to mod though.

now if you were going to make all points as pictured i would have to warn not to as that will fold. i saw your post stating your going to connect all points together and brace. thats the pic i would like to see even if you use cardboard to mock it.

I assume you know that 4140 WILL need to be annealled or heat treated  after all welding is done? Since other attachments will be 4130,annealing or normalizing would be the preferred.Just my .02

I am not welding to the bearing carriers. I turned a flanged hub out of 4140 that slips over and bolts on to the aluminum bearing housing. In my vision, all link connections and shock mount will be gusseted together. All parts are 4130 except for the double shear plates, and they will be sleeved. I am not giving up, yet.

Go back to page 1, study those pics DS posted.  Bolt that bearing carrier into what DS has posted up and bamm.  Shoot he prob has some 5-link carriers laying around if the center hole and bolt pattern can be made to work.

Trying a few ideas for connecting links. Nothing definite yet, but this might look and work good, hopefully. I bet you guys realize how much time something this simple can take!! And may not work.


NO NO NO on a grand scale Brian.  No way in God's green earth that a tube welded to the bearing housing will withstand all the force that will be applied to it. You will need some kind of a bearing housing around the bearing carrier.  The top transvirce arm has way to much leverage on that set up you are planing now.  Add in the factor of you will warp the hell out of the bearing housing buy the time you get it all welded up.
