It's readily available information when buying replacement side marker lights (which I've recently had to do).

Speaking of savant type questions:
Is the A frame section of your cage one or three pieces (not including the piece under the windshield)? On my truck it is three pieces. Main section with tubes going into it over each door. I swear I've seen 97s like mine but recently I was looking at marks 95 and noticed his cage is one piece where the sides over the doors are all part of the front section.

That is the truck that I talk about with all the bells and whitsles. First saw it a couple of years ago when I was in the Brit car show in Ocean Grove.

Yeah, but you never post any photos! Adrian comes through with the proof!

Series or Defender on Walking Dead

Caught this one on the pilot episode of the Walking Dead marathon, can't tell if it's a series or defender. The real biter(pun intended for fans of the Walking Dead TV show) is in the next scene when they go to the police sta for supplies, they're driving a damn Land Cruiser!!

Wow! incredibly good eye
I have seen that episode several times and never noticed.

I sort of lost interest in the show. there is really only so much you can see of flesh-eating zombies.

I'm still way into the show but started reading the graphic novel after the first season and it's just different enough to keep you interested, if not drooling for it! I like the changes in the human nature changes that you'd have to endure to survive.

Whose D90 was this in NYC over the weekend? For a second I thought it was Hinckley's but it's not similar enough aside from the color and the winch bumper.

Me too! I have a loads more capacity for zombie action. That looks like a series BTW. Rear side windows are squared corners, not rounded.

I was thinking that same thing about the square windows. Pissed when the next scene had a land cruiser. Might have to contact them on their faux pas.

That series is parked in the next houses driveway, so it doesn't imply it belonged to the dad holed up in the house. That zombie is squating at the front of his driveway, where I'm assuming the FJ was parked out of frame.

I still feel they shouldve had the foresight to ditch the cruiser and take the series, but in hindsight, in a post apocalyptic state, cruiser parts would probably be easier. Foresight, hindsight. Hard call to make when we live in such a peaceful state of living.

That's Sam Staley, he's a fellow Lowcountry land rover club member! Worked on his brakes this last weekend.

In response to Barry's query earlier, I certainly cannot claim Horsey-levels of savant-ness, but I can (and did) walk down to the garage and look at the cages on my trucks. My 94ST's cage A-pillar section (not counting the below-windscreen bar) is three pieces, with each over-door section having a separate, removable, two-giant bolt section. (Two seams, two bolts.) The 97SW's similar stuff has the over-door parts as part of the cage B-pillar, hence only one giant bolt above each door. (One seam one bolt.)

Clear as mud? Does that answer your question? I can take photos tomorrow in daylight if that'll help.

Every 94 and 97 I have seen is like this but marks 95 only has one bolt over each door. It doesnt come apart the same way.
