That is absolutely awesome!

I'm a sucker for hardcore looking rigs, and that roll cage looks beefy.

The aluminum on these trucks is so soft, protection is a must

Yeah that's Jordan.


Funny to hear what people say about the cage he built himself around the truck he built himself.


keyboard wheeling is still pretty cool I guess

Doesn't Jordan know that exocages are only for the mall crawling 110's!!!!?
How dare he build something himself and then actually use the truck for more than running to StarBucks!!

Nice. I miss sausages, curry houses, and fish and chips. Best fish and chips I had in all of the UK was at the Thurston fish and chip shop right by the train stop(outside Bury St Edmunds).

I am pretty sure no one...I/me/we meant anything bad about his cage/creation...I think it's pretty cool...statement of fact that it wouldn't survive a crash impact...we all know it's for off road impacts/trail rash. From a mall wheelin perspective yeah it would serve well from hitting folks side mirrors and wheel chair hitches and the like!

A friend of mine spotted this one in Philly yesterday - I knew I recognized it from somewhere and sure enough it was an ECR rehab:

I had fish in chips for lunch today in Dublin! You definitely need to get chips and curry sauce. The best Indian food I've had has been in Ireland and England.

To keep things on topic, I saw a d90 van with a snorkel at the airport in Dublin.

The first defender I saw on this trip was a 110 at Heathrow.

And then I've seen just a couple more in London.

I went to Paris today and I've seen more than I've seen in London all week. I even saw a 130 that appeared to be a tow truck, I think.

tow trucks in paris are often defenders that have lowered roof lines to get into the car parks ... they also use land cruisers ... interesting things when you see them!

Oh and the French love english things ... they don't like to admit it ... but they do ... ask my wife! ;-)

I about crapped my pants and spit out my coffee at the white unicorn sighting of this nice 110 heading north on the Oki expressway in Japan. This is a rare sight in Oki.
