Yes thats one of the old style ARB hiding under there. Why ARB messed up the design by lowering the mount I never understood.

I think the accessories weigh as much as the truck itself.

That looks like a blast...The roof rack is new...i believe he just finished fabbing it up and mounting it.

Not my cup of tea. Props though for the engineering/work that went into the vehicle.

If you replaced all the gear with useable stuff, the thing would be a great race chase vehicle.

That said, I threw up in my mouth just a little. You know, not all the way, the kind you could get away with at a party if nobody was looking right at you.

Tomb Raider anyone? Like others have said, you gotta give him credit for a good build and some great ideas... I would hate to see his receipts :0

I have to agree... It's a little too much!!! But there are some of the things that it does have that I want on my rig.

-My first question is the snorkel orginally for 200tdi, because I was thinking about doing the same thing.

-Second question, the clamps that he uses to attach to the A-pillar (for the snorkel and the roof rack) I have tried to find them, but no luck. All I was able to find was the Hard rock ones. I wonder if they are custom made for his own rig?

It kind of looks like a SEMA show vehicle, where every vendor for Land Rover after market parts has fought to have something in the rig.

I think that something would probably break from the load weight alone over time in "extreme" use. Too much stress on the chassis. I would be afraid to take that to somewhere remote. Probably would be carjacked or worse.

I thought SEMA when I saw it too, but I think he set it up so he can wheel with what he needs and the first pics just have everything on. I'm running a Lowrance GPS like that and its incredible, despite being meant for a boat.

I like the tailgate and the drawer. Seems like you could build a drawer system like that and mount the rear seat on top of it. Just a thought.

I think the rear bumper has greatly decreased his departure angle.

If he build all the extras he is a very handy fabricator.

That is why it is called a short cut. If it was easy it would just be "the way."
