My Defender Makes it on ECR's Website!

So here I am on my way out from Afghanistan after a year deployment and I get the best Turkey day present ever.

I get to see the work ECR has been doing on my work. Mike has been great to work dealing with my countless emails and constantly changing punch list.

After a year of getting shot at and blown up I am excited to get back to my old girl with a new lease on life.

My truck is project 810.

Looks Good! Most everyone here hopes for Mike to work his magic on their D90. Welcome home!

honestly after the frame and all the accident repair there is NO more money in the budget for anything.


Things they did do were:

new galvy frame
ss brake and fuel lines
new door hinges
new drivers side quarter panel
powder coat the roll cage
new led tail lights
rhino line the bed the floors and the seat box
fix the gutter kit for the badger top
and a pretty big punch list of seals and bearings,brakes,wipers stuff like that.

I also have a brand new set of boost rims I got from safarirover to put on.

Things I want in the future are :

ECR work light
ECR ROX front bumper with hella lights
amp and woofer
TD5 head light surrounds
new door cards
heated leather seats
A/C that actually works

Project 810

Welcome back- you must be psyched about all the work done. Where to first? Drinks in Portsmouth or up to North Conway?
BTW, thank you for your service.

We should get some NH folks together for drinks or something soon. Maybe some light wheeling? Whereabouts in the state are you?

Galvy frame :drool:

Looks like ECR is giving your rig some needed love after the previous "repairs". You'll be so stoked when it's done. A buddy had some work done at ECR on his truck and brought it over to my house to install a Thule tire mounted bike rack. They did such a sweet job. It sounded great (including the tranny shifts), looked great and things like closing the door just had that thud solid sound to it. I don't have the funds to send mine up there but it seems like a worthwhile long term investment.

Your AC works fine. It was just unplugged. We found that when putting all the systems back together. Checked the pressures and temps and it is good to go.
