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

Now that you mention it, there may be welds which I thought was repaired rust at the joints. I will have the check when I get home. I suppose someone else was having trouble getting her in the garage too!

As long as they did a decent job of it, it doesn't look bad. Stock is a bit too high IMO.

I've spotted 3 90's here in Oahu. 1 white ST in Kailua, 1 Green SW in Kailua, and 1 white SW in Waikiki. Was able to meet the owner of the Green SW. Now I need to ship mine out here. Won't fit in the garage though

Saw about 8 so far. Only got pics of two or 3, b/c my phone is so slow. Mike, good thing the blue 110 has a galv frame.
