Look what the PNW just handed down......a Land Rover Icicle! Probably old hat to you east and mid-western-ers, but pretty rare over here.

OUCH! Man, CVC really brings the hammer down doesn't he! I guess I'll need to put in for sticker!!

An extra thirty minutes huh! Hehehe, the entire city of Portland has shut down! Always does and it doesn't matter if it's a foot of snow or half an inch. Great to get an extra day off to play with the D90 though!

I was about to say the same thing, looks like a normal winter storm out here. Just don't lock the doors, and flip I should dig out some of my pictures of how much ice it takes to worry us out in the NE. Anybody else suffer through that big ice storm a few years back in upstate NY and Canada? Ripped down almost every electrical pole north of Albany, including the big high tension towers.

When you know they're coming all you need to do is make sure the doors are unlocked, the wipers are flipped away from the glass, and you give yourself enough time to let things heat up.

Thanks Randy! I'm really please with that set up. Although, I made the mistake of using my old 764's from the front and installing them in the rear when I should have just bought new ones.

Yousef, nope no ARB still stock, but I might be looking into it soon. I've been having some problems acquiring a bumper recently and just might go ahead with the ARB. I think ARB is perfect for what I use my D90 for. Plus, I appreciate the aesthetics of it. I really liked Kevin Collins old D90 with the ARB on it. Although I'm still not sure whether to go with the new Warn thermo or the Husky 10K SW.

Yea I agree, does that picture reflect the description you have in the BIOS section or have you made some modifications?
