Justback from skiing so those temps would be a shockto the system.

Jeff, remember that RR is almost 3 tonnes, which makes them a hand-full in the snow. 4x4 is all very well to get you going but not a lot of help stopping... and if it got standard fat low-profile tyres on... :roll:

I've pulled a fully loaded truck out of a ditch with a 1970's Range Rover , suitably loaded in the back with seats down and 1 tonne of animal feed bags. Decent tyres of course but it just doddled out in low gear , hardly any rev's -- a great 4 x 4 if you know how to use it ;) Having said that my old 4.2lt Landcruiser was even better :P

There's aworld of difference between the 70's RR ( My Dad had one of the first and G/Dad had 3) and the Chelsea tractor Jeffs got.

Sorry Jeff. Just meant the 70's one is closer to a Defender in the luxury stakes than it's younger brother. Though a lot more comfortable than the series3 of the same era, it was still very utility based by modern standards; You could hose it out and wipe the seats down.
