Saw him at MAR last year. really well built series truck with a 200tdi. He tows it everywhere with the 110. I imagine he is at the limits of the towing capacity if not beyond it. NIce fellow too, if you have a chance, have a chat with him, good stories.

Could be a chilly week. I pre-ran a trail this morning and it was "Thunder Hailing" in Leadville.

As someone who regularly tows 110's with a 110 Tdi I can assure you that its not fun and thats a long,long way. As said above he's a realy cool guy from Bethesda, Md. I also climbed all over this truck @ MAR. His rear quarter panel sliders were an inspiration to Charles Galpin and I......we haven't even started our project nearly a year later.


Cage is new from last year.

Very Cool, hope I can meet him one day (since we live in the same state and all), and get to see his Rovers..

We came across the 109" in a parking lot last year right before the NR, and were in the same group doing area BFE, where he damaged a driveshaft.
Very cool SII!

Yup, that's Matt Moran's rig. Great guy, nice wheeling rig and a great driver too.
I used to tow my 109 on a trailer behind a '94 LWB RangeRover, that was no fun either.

Copy/Paste of photos doesn't work from the iPhone apparently. Here's the spy shot I was talking about.

Silvia is always driving it when i see her. Her's has no rack and no aftermarket bumper. its all stock.

I saw a Black SW today and caught up to him and pulled over to talk. PA plate, SW with some weird grey light bezels. He had no idea what d-90 source was. I told him about it but i doubt he will be here. Most people I meet never have heard of d-90.com and really can't give a rat's ass that you are driving the same sweet truck they are!
