Another New Guy
Just wanted to say hi. A member, DBOSS, flagged me down at a gas station nearby while I was driving my '97 white station wagon. I mentioned this site and he said it was safe to post. I am new to Defenders but not new to 4wd's. Ya, I admit I used to drive Jeeps, then I got a little smarter and migrated to Early Broncos, I have always liked Defenders but they are on the pricey side to drag across the occasional rock. I couldn't resist any longer and I am really starting to like this thing.
I have attached a few pictures for you.. My current D-90, my old '83 Scrambler with an EFI 5.0 from a '93 mustang and a homemade full hardtop (it only took two months of evenings to get the custom wiring harness made), A '74 Bronco my little brother and I built with a Cummins 4BT, NV4500 an Atlas II and lots of custom tube work. (this one is his, my green'75 is a little worse for wear from a head on with a drunk driver - glad I already had shoulder belts installed and my seats tied to the cage!)
They may be a little rough here and there but I do all my own machining, fab and welding.
After 6 engine swaps including two diesels and many mixed-brand V8 conversions I still have to say I'm pretty uneducated when it comes to Land Rovers but hope to learn more and maybe even drag the thing over the occasional rock or two!
