DD and Major, I have to admit that my original post was a kind of knee Jerk reaction on my part. I should have worded my response differently. Having used LC 100 Series for 5 years, I have high regard for what these vehicles are capable of doing. I also have high regard for both your contributions to this forum. So, I accept that the Major was just giving an observation from his personal experience and not giving any kind of technical endorsement of the MM540 over the LC 70 and my response was quite unwarranted ...

My dear Sir,
It is not a problem at all. Infact, it is a treat to have someone who does the explaining in such a correct, concise and a crisp manner.

I think the following clip on youtube will give all sorts of explanations regarding SWB, Tires & Drivers (No offence to any brand, just one of the clips showing diff. terrains)

Also how the tire-treads & SWB + Weight of a vehicle plays deciding part while off-roading
