Its a Rover hot rod. A friend of mine built it. Is a series 1 body on S10 frame and running gear. I dont have acess to the pics I have of it, but these will give you the gist. http://www.oldparkedcars.com/2012/08...-1-pickup.html

Thanks! Big help, I appreciate it. I enjoyed looking at your clubs page -- some real good wheelin' in there. Not just a bunch of boost-wearing garage queens

LOL. I know you are talking about me. So let me put some of my feelings across and then you can feel free to debate me if you want.

A. This is my rig and I did to my rig what I wanted to do to it. Who cares if I don't go off-roading that much or if I want to do a bunch of stuff to my truck. What does that matter to anybody but me? I don't bust anybody else's chops about the things they do or do not do to their truck or the things they do with or don't do with their truck. I don't care. Enjoy it the way you want to enjoy it.

B. I didn't really understand Defender culture until the last couple of weeks both by reading things on this site and then down at the ABFM. I honestly never knew that 90% of Defender drivers expect 100% of other Defender drivers to have dents on the outside of their rig and that they are supposed to be dirty and that there is a line between normal Defender and Defender with too many things on the outside of it. I do however plan to go off-roading more and I do plan on using everything that is on my rig and if I don't I'm still glad it's there because you never know when I might NEED to use it.

C. There are two sets of people who do love my rig, my friends and family and just about every other human being out there that doesn't own their own Defender. I can't go anywhere without people coming up and talking about my rig. I've been pulled over by Police (and no not the Defender fashion police) just so they could ask me about my truck, I must have gotten about 50 thumbs up from other drivers while driving home from Portland. But seriously, I'm not in this for recognition, I just want my rig the way I want it, the thumbs up is just the icing on the cake.

Lastly, I'd rather research modifications to my truck (even though I'm now done doing stuff, thanks) then to be the guy on here making fun of other people because they don't think the same way you do. So have fun off-roading with your awesome off-road rig. I hope you have fun and are kept safe.

I think that there might just be a little more room on this site for some live and let live behavior. Nobody is better than anybody else. We all have our reasons for doing things.

Not everyone wheels their rig... Not everyone has to...

I think your truck is a prime example of a defender. You've done well to keep it in such great shape!

We all buy these things for different reasons... That's the beauty of variety... There's so many examples of what others have done and you get to pick and choose what works for you... Or not.

Any details on the green D90 ST next to yours? Because that's the one I was asking about. It looks nice. It looks like they have the SG rear tire carrier but removed the fuel tray from it.

My comments weren't directed at you but at jymmiejamz. Yes, the guy next to me is an awesome guy with a great rig who also sees the value of keeping his clear coat from peeling off in the sun. He purchased a new tire rack that you cannot get anymore that came with a shelve of sorts for a fuel can which he had removed and had some very specific welding done to it so that the fuel can can still be attached but without the seat like shelving. I think he thought it looked cleaner.

Side note on the MTs I have on my truck, what happens if I go back to standard defender tires. Do I gain two miles per gallon in fuel economy or what? Doesn't matter because snow is soon coming to the passes and I have this thing about staying alive when I go over Stevens pass to get to my cabin through the winter. But just wondering.

thanks so much for your comments. I also love what you have done to your rig. I think it's amazing. As I've mentioned, I think you may have one of the nicest ones out there.

Big time grain of salt. Just wanted to get that off my chest for a while now. Upward and Onward people.

And for the record I have never driven my car to a gas station only to end up having a gas-fight with my friends, contrary to popular belief.

My comment wasn't directed at anyone in particular, sorry if you took it as me busting your chops. I was simply commenting on the fact that the majority of people in the off road community typically only wheel once or twice a year and check the forums day in and day out looking for new stuff to do to their trucks. I'm guilty of it too, but I've accepted that I rarely go wheeling, so I don't want to listen to m/t's going down the highway. I have a Range Rover on 36's, locked, beadlockes, ect., but I haven't wheeled it in over two years!

No harm no foul. I've never come here looking for mod ideas. I watch Tomb Raider to get all my mod ideas.

I don't hear my tires when I'm driving down the highway so I assumed nobody else could either. So maybe those weren't thumbs up I was getting coming back from Portland, maybe everybody was simply giving me the finger and my deep seated narcissism just saw it as thumbs up??

Maybe I should get another set of summer tires. See now you just created an urge for me to spend yet more money. Argh.

Yes, he made the gas can tray removable, as he only carries cans while on a trip, and he didnt like the look of the empty tray. If you want more details, i can check with him.

Hah, coming from Portland it was probably an ironic fixed-gear thumbs up.

We only had Saturday so we didn't take a truck (It's a good 3 hour drive for us each way - I had the 110 up at the Bellevue ABFM if you were there this year.) Had a great day admiring the rigs and everything else British... the wife now thinks we need a TR250 or a MGB-GT to add to the garage....
