muddy

Some fun today...

Follow-up Post:

After the last fiasco out here where my buddies at worked coined the term " Land only Rover", I changed out all the plugs, wires, and greased up everything under the hood to help with the water, seemed to have worked great. Just a comparison picture, same hole.. I glide over it and the rubicon is practically drowning. Took some side shots to show how deep it was on his jeep, and on my tires, heh heh..
Guy from work was anxoius to get his gay new rubicon dirty, so I came out to test my waterproofing job.
I'll post some vid tomorrow.
Land only rover is gone...

Jason,

Nice vehicle! How do you like the half cab set up? I'd like to have some good shots of your rig wearing the Badger Gear.

Thanks!
I took a lot of pictures today from the same mud hole, with one picture to show a small tear. Any sewing kits to repair that available? I love the cab look, only complaint is sealing the back. there are just a few spots where it is hard to seal. My mother use to sew a lot and she suggested (for the droopy gaps by the buttons) is to sew in a small dowell rod type stick (aluminum, plastic etc) to put along the top to keep it from gapping. I keep tryin to get her to doit, but she is too busy with her job these days. Have you thought about any mods like that? It would be a pretty cool mod to have that extra rigidity around the rear (back window) piece.. enjoy the pics!

I am resizing a movie of that mud crossing, I may just link it out off an ftp or something, should have it up tonight or tomorrow.

Bah, I won't believe waterproof until you go through something deep

At least over the hood.

Jeff,
The top is well worth the price. I have been using my half cab for the last year. Haven't look back since.

Cool PICs. Looks like fun. How do you like your ARB brushguard? What size tires are you running?

Parts on defender

Jason,

Where did you get that ARB bull bar? If I didn't know better I'd say that was the one I had modified by an off-road shop in Nashville, TN summer of 2000. Was on my d90 last year when I sold it('94 ST #272 - red too, with the 285/75R16 SSRs on GCR steels). Other than the half cab(awesome!), and the lack of black chequer plate all around, I'm having flashbacks.

Love to know the history on your mods, where you got them.

Take it easy

Z

Sorry to keep at this, but itīs pretty funny. Found some old pics, similarities(minus 94/97 details) are pretty striking.

Good to see that truck went somewhere good. It was one of the ones I was considering when I was shopping for a replacement truck.
