Not bad - hopefully he made at least minimal wage on the hours he had in it!

I like how clean it is. Nice work Der Lage. And you added the second reverse light; it looks good. LR must have supplied you the same wrong panel they sent me. The all-modded look with the non-original color and aftermarket wheels isn't my taste, but it's a really nice build. Just a few things I noticed though. Front bump stops are missing, wrong heater core (?), and frame is not original? I don't believe original NAS frames have the part that sticks out below the bumper. Mine doesn't. It's an Oregon truck?

Hmm weird. If mine were cut I guess they did a good job. I would have tried to add those pieces if I knew. I saw pictures of other NAS frames that looked the same so I thought that's how they are. Oh well.

It wouldn't be hard to add those underbites since they make these replacement pieces. But there's no way we're welding on it now with zinc on it. I guess I have the option of fitting one of those aftermarket bumpers if I ever want to.

Here's a couple more NAS frames cut like mine. So it must be a fairly common thing like Jeff says. These are some of the first pictures to pop up in a Google image search of a NAS Defender 90 chassis so that's why I thought it is suppose to be like that.

This one's listed on uship.com.



And this one's at ECR.

I cut mine before galvanizing. Yours were obviously cut but in a sort of odd way. Not sure why the cutter did that.

I dunno. It looks clean to me though. I found this thread that talks about cutting them. ECR says the nubs don't serve any purpose for NAS trucks and they do look goofy left on there with an aftermarket bumper, so I'm glad the PO cut them off.

Question

Any comments from the OP of engine performance with all these upgrades?

I never understood why people bid on stuff they don't really plan on buying

I am guessing that 99/100 times, its due to attempted fraud. I doubt anyone legitimately bids on something they don't intend to buy.

They did have a useful purpose, jacking points.
