I have seen this ST D-90 around town here in Napa Valley. I wasn't in my 110 so I didn't try to waive but was wondering if this truck was on here or belongs to NCLR. I blacked out the license plate just in case.

D110 green with white roof. Palisades NY on Route 9W Southbound and Oak Tree Road. Stopped at bus stop, looks like you were on the phone or checking D90.com on your phone....

I am in Nantucket for the week and I have seen so many Defenders in the last two days I have lost count. A couple of 93 NAS 110s, a old blue RHD 110, a G4 110 copy (not the ECR one), a 130 double cab and a lot of 90s.

I'll be up there this Sunday through the 11th. You'll be gone by then, right?

I will work on the pictures. Unfortunately, I have been driving when I see them. This has resulted in my wife yelling at me to watch the road instead of the Defenders.

Josh, I am leaving Sunday morning so we will miss each other. My apologies as I would have liked to meet the famous Horsey in person.

Saw the mysterious Colorado Springs red ST again today, this time with a driver. It was being driven by a soldier over on Cheyenne Rd over by 8th St. I've never seen it parked on Fort Carson but if I do someday, I'll leave a Barry-style stalker note.

Yes, Supercharged!!! Hoping I did not get in over my head. No experience with the superchargers. It appears to have an Old Man Emu suspension with a two or three inch lift, and air lockers. I have owned a stock defender before, but all of the after market gear is new to me so I may be posting some questions here.

Wow. That is nice. Let us know your impression of the supercharger after you've lived with it a while. Have often wondered if that would be a worthwhile mod. What # (XXX / 300) is your LE?

I'm 008/300. I was not looking for a supercharger and would not have installed one. Despite wanting a stock defender, I went for it being that it was an LE and local. I had anticipated the expense and hassle of purchasing a vehicle from out-of-state and was glad to avoid that issue.

Unfortunately, I thought it was going to fit in my garage....Nope.

Just airdown the tires. Not sure if there are articles in the tech or faq areas on the supercharges. But there is Jorge that has a supercharger on his Defender and some others that have had theirs rehab'ed from some company in Cali(?) I think and so there should be a thread or two on the subject.

Which rack is that? Looks more stout than the SD by 2" or so.

It is my understanding that the rack was standard on the LE. Would that assumption be incorrect?

looks like a few inches have been cut off the height of a stock rack
