2008 Land Rover Questions and Answers


  • LED Lights Flash on Trailer Towed by a 2008 Land Rover LR3 Using Adapter # C57003
  • The 7-Way to 7-Way adapter, # C57003, is designed to work on German vehicles like the VWs, Audis, and so on to deal with a bulb-out sensor issue present on those vehicles. It may not work the same for other applications like on your Land Rover. If the LED lights on the trailer are not providing enough power draw on the system you can try installing some load resistors on each of the lighting circuits (right turn/brake lights, left turn/brake lights) behind the trailer connector. You...

  • Will the # 119176KIT Wiring Harness Work on a 2008 Land Rover LR2
  • I checked with Tow Ready and the Upgraded Circuit Protected Modulite with 4 Pole Harness and Hardwire Kit, item # 119176KIT is designed to be used on your 2008 Land Rover LR2. Installation details are available online and I have provided a link to them below. You will need to use the included circuit tester to locate the brake light circuit behind the vehicle tail light. Once this circuit is located it will be connected to the smaller red wire coming from the converter box. Next,...

  • Will the Spare Tire Still fit on a 2008 Land Rover Range Rover Sport with a Curt Hitch Installed
  • As long as your spare is not a full size spare that is the same size as the wheels and tires on your 2008 Land Rover Range Rover Sport then it will still mount in the factory location. If it is a full size spare then it will not fit and the only recommendation I can make for you would be to try and track down a smaller spare.

  • Will the Modulite Trailer Wiring Harness Affect a 2008 Land Rover LR2 Back-up System
  • No, the Tow Ready Wiring for the 2008 LR2 by Land Rover, will not affect the back-up sensors on your vehicle. No other parts are required to install a 4-Way trailer connection. This harness is in no way tied into the reverse circuit and only uses the vehicles brake, turn and tail light signals as a switch, the power for the trailer lighting comes from the vehicle battery. I have posted instructions for the # 11979KIT below along with a coupler of videos that may help.

  • Do Thule XG12 Tire Chains Fit Tire Size 255/55-19
  • Yes, the Thule Tire Chains XG12 part # TH2004705265 that you referenced are a confirmed fit for the tire size 255/55-19 that you have on your 2008 Land Rover LR3. You will still want to check the owners manual of your vehicle for any tire chain restrictions.

  • 2008 Range Rover Sport Towing Mirror Recommendation
  • Due to the unusual profile of the mirrors on your Range Rover, I am not too confident that any of the mirrors you mentioned would be a great fit. The clip on mirrors depend on the mirror having a relatively flat rear and front lip running around the mirror housing in order to fasten to the mirror. Because your mirror is so curved, I do not think you would be happy with the fit. This would leave a door mount like the CIPA # 11650. From the tests we have done, we have found this mirror...

  • Does the Draw-Tite Hitch 75688 for a 2008 Land Rover LR2 Require Trimming of the Rear Fascia
  • I could see needing to trim the rear fascia for the Land Rover OEM hitch, but the Draw-Tite hitch does not require fascia trimming. It is designed to fit just below the rear bumper. I imagine the hitch that Land Rover offers is designed to fit and look like the optional factory hitch. Below I have added a link to the instructions for the Draw-Tite hitch, 75688, so you can read through the instructions. There is also a diagram that shows where the hitch will be positioned in relation...

  • Trailer Wiring Harness for 2008 Range Rover HSE
  • While we don't have any listed fits for trailer wiring harnesses for your 2008 Range Rover HSE I do have a great universal fit harness that would work well. The part # 119250KIT would be a fantastic option. This kit taps into your taillight wires to install but since it uses sensors it does not require you to do any hardwiring at all.

  • Complete Rhino-Rack Roof Rack for a 2008 Range Rover Sport
  • Yes, Rhino-Rack RSP Roof Rack - Vortex Aero Crossbars - Track Mount Item # RSPT508 does include the tracks. The rack comes with 2 lengths of track 46 inches long, 2 crossbars, 4 legs, and hardware for installation on your 2008 Land Rover Ranger Rover Sport.

  • Difference Between Rhino-Rack # RRRS365B and Leg Kit # RRRLKVA for 2008 Land Rover LR2
  • The difference between the two Rhino-Rack roof rack systems you referenced, # RRRS365B and the rack consisting of parts # RRVA126B-2, # RRRLKVA and # DK010, is in the length of the Vortex Aero crossbars and the type of leg kit. The RS 2500 Roof Rack # RRRS365B has legs into which the Vortex bars terminate while the other system has longer through-type cross bars that extend further out beyond the leg assemblies. Please refer to the linked photo and video. Some customers prefer the more...

  • Will Installing Trailer Wiring Disable the Backup Sensors and Alarm on a 2008 Land Rover LR 2
  • There are some things to consider first. I do not recommend pulling the fuse for the back up sensors or disconnecting anything in the system because there may be a time when you forget to reconnect it and you might need it. Also, the sensors and alert should only go off when you are in reverse. While driving forward, the alarm should not go off. So you have to consider how much you will be backing up and if that is really enough to make you want to disable the system. Adding the trailer...

  • Replacement Mounting Hardware for Rooftop Cargo Box from Thule or Yakima
  • Thule does make a series of cargo box called the Evolution. If you have a Thule Evolution cargo box then the correct replacement hardware kit is # TH05820. Yakima produces the rocket Box series of cargo box and for this the correct hardware kit is # Y8870084 (note this is sold as a single unit, so you'll need four).

  • Hitch and 4 Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2008 Land Rover Range Rover Sport
  • The first thing you will need is a hitch, for that I would recommend the Curt Hitch part # 13456. This is a 2 inch hitch that would do a great job carrying a 4 bike rack. Once the hitch is installed you would be able to install the Thule Hitching Post Bike rack part # TH934XTR and it would work well for you to carry up to 4 bikes. I attached a review video for you to check out. If you plan on carrying any womens or alternative framed bikes without horizontal top tubes you may also...

  • Can the Curt Class III Hitch be Used on a 2008 Landrover LR3 and Carry a Thule 4 Bike Rack
  • Yes, you can use the Curt Class III trailer hitch, # 13456, on your 2008 Land Rover LR3. Installation of this hitch does not require any drilling and is very straight forward, see instructions link. The Thule 4 bike racks will work with this hitch. If you want an economical version you can go with the Thule Parkway 4 Bike Rack, # TH956. This is a great rack that will fold away from the vehicle for access to the back hatch. Along with this rack, if you plan to carry womens, childrens,...

  • Trailer Brake Controller Recommendation for a 2008 Land Rover Range Rover HSE
  • First, using a brake controller is a good idea because without using one, the weight and momentum of the trailer will keep pushing the vehicle forward when braking. This will increase wear and tear on your Land Rover and could push you right into an intersection. Braking would need to start sooner and will last longer since the vehicle will be braking for 2 instead of just slowing and stopping itself. For a brake controller I recommend the Tekonsha P2, # 90885, because it is reliable,...

  • Will the Thule Raceway 3 Trunk Mount Bike Rack Fit a 2008 Land Rover LR2
  • I checked with Thule and the Raceway 3 bike rack, # TH9002PRO, will fit your 2008 Land Rover LR2. If you will be carrying womens, childrens, or alternative frame bike racks, I recommend using the bike adapter bar, # TH982XT, for greater ground clearance and to carry the bikes more level. I have included a link to a video that shows how the adapter works.

  • Availability of 13-Pin to 4-Pin Adapter for a 2008 Land Rover Configured for European Standards
  • Unfortunately there is no 13 to 4-pin adapter. You will need to do some splicing to get the correct functions wired to a 4-pin for your trailer. I recommend using the Upgraded Circuit Protected ModuLite with 4 Pole Harness and Hardwire Kit # 119179KIT for your 2008 Land Rover LR2. This kit splices into your vehicle wiring and is powered by running the included Black wire up to your battery. This ensures that your trailer will not be drawing too much power from your Land Rover tail lights....

  • Adding a 7-Way Trailer Connector and Brake Controller to a 2008 Land Rover LR2
  • Since you already have a 4-Way trailer connector on your 2008 Land Rover LR2, you will need installation kit # ETBC7 and a brake controller. You may not have to do any splicing. On the ETBC7, the 4-Way you have plugs into the mating 4-Way on the ETBC7 adapter. The white wire grounds to the vehicle frame. The purple wire is for reverse lights and would be the only rear wire that would potentially have to be spliced into the vehicle wiring. But if the trailer does not have reverse lights...

  • Parts Needed to Install 7-Way Trailer Connector on 2008 Land Rover LR2
  • To install a 7-way on your 2008 Land Rover LR2 you would need to start with a 4-way. That will provide the turn signal functions and then you can use a 7-way adapter to convert it to the style of connector you need. For the 4-way you would want to start with the part # 119179KIT which is a universal wiring harness that's been tested as a fit for your vehicle. Now if your trailer does not have brakes all you would need is the part # 37185 as an adapter to convert the 4-way to a 7-way....

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch And Trailer Wiring For 2008 Land Rover LR2
  • The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver, part # C13052 is a verified as a good fit for your 2008 Land Rover. This is a Class lll hitch and it has a 2 inch receiver opening. The Euro ball mounts we offer are not designed for a 2 inch receiver. They fit 1-1/4 inch receiver openings. You might be interested in etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop and one with a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop. It also includes a 1-7/8 inch...

  • Troubleshooting Hyperflash When 2008 Land Rover Is Connected To Trailer With LED Lights
  • The LED lights on your new cargo trailer should not require resistors or diodes. Typically, resistors are used on a vehicle that switches to LED lights, but not needed for a trailer with LEDs. You can try an adapter like part # TR20141 to see if it eliminates the hyperflashing problem. It has not been tested on your vehicle but the resistors are built into the adapter. It will attach to the 4-way plug on the trailer and then plug into the 7-way connector on your Land Rover. Load...

  • Does ZCI Trailer Wiring Harness Make Install of 4-Way Easier than Standard Universal Kit
  • With the part # 119250KIT you have to pull out the wiring of the vehicle to access the wires that lead to the taillights, similar to what you saw in the video you mentioned. Where this kit makes thing is easier is that instead of having to use a quick-connect to splice in to the wire once you have found the one you need by testing, you instead attach one of the black sensors of the kit around the wire. Easiest way to see how this installs is to check out the install video I attached...

  • What Size Spare Tire Fits with Curt Hitch 13456 on 2008 Land Rover Range Rover Sport
  • The two stock tires sizes for your 2008 Land Rover Range Rover Sport are your size 255/50/R19 and size 275/40-20, both of which are about 10-inches wide and 29-inches in diameter. On many vehicles the spare tire that is not full size will be a little donut type. Since that type of spare would simply not work on an off-road vehicle like yours the 175/80/R19 (30-inches in diameter) is not considered to be a full-size spare due to its narrower width so it will fit with the hitch # 13456....

  • Trunk or Hitch Mounted Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2008 Land Rover LR-2
  • The Thule Raceway part # TH9001PRO is the nicest trunk rack available for your 2008 Land Rover LR2, but I can't recommend you leave it (or any other trunk rack) installed on the vehicle while trying to open the rear door. The weight of the rack would make the tailgate incredibly heavy which could slam down and hurt someone, plus the hooks could get wedged against the body of your vehicle and damage it. If you really would like the ability to access the rear cargo area of your vehicle...

  • Swing Away Disk Brake Kit Recommendation for a Trailer with a 3 inch by 5 inch Frame
  • I checked with Titan and the Swing Away Disk Brake Coupler Kit part # T4843400 that you referenced will fit 3 by 5 inch trailer frames so I would recommend it for you. Since your trailer is aluminum you will need to contact the manufacturer of the trailer to see if a swing away coupler can be used on it.

It also includes a 1-7/8 inch ball, 2 inch ball, hitch pin with clip, and a storage bag. If...

When using the Tram you will not be able to carry bikes at the same time. In addition to the Apex there are numerous other Thule racks that can be used with the Tram including the Vertex, # TH9028XT for 2 bikes or # TH9029XT for 4 bikes, the Parkway 4-bike # TH956 or 2-bike # TH958, and the Hitching Post Pro...

  • Can Proportional Brake Controller Install in 2008 Land Rover Range Rover Sport
  • So you referenced a 2008 Land Rover Range Rover Sport and we have a quick-install harness that fits that vehicle as long as it comes with the factory tow package. The part # 3035-P is a confirmed fit and plugs into the vehicle's wiring under the dash which will then allow you to connect a proportional brake controller like the P3 part # 90195. It would be a very painless install.
