Weird.

If you look at it in the first project (175) you'll see toward the bottom that it doesn't have snaps on the doors, but when it comes back (202) it does have snaps.

Maybe the harsh winter in NJ ruined the original doors. Oddly enough your friend Roland has a 95 black 90 with snaps on his doors.

There has to be a way to weed out people like that on this forum. I think that may be 3 strikes for him.

Well Horsey you probably would like to know his truck has rhinolining. Is that a plus?

I like this Defender. I'd Have to get rid of another toy first though. There are no rules against owning 2 are there? Why get a Jeep when you could get this?

Since this post is purely a free for all, Horsey can I get a picture of your bike rack on your truck. I have a thule hitch mount but I hate having to lower it to get in the truck. I want the one that just goes through the spare. Do you need to modify it to make it work?

Really? don has the rack you are talking about. He still hasn't put up a write-up on the mod he had to make for it to work on a larger tire.

I thought you had one on your truck. How do you carry your bike? Does badger make a bike rack?

Did you put black boosts on your truck?

Not yet. I have 5 brand new boost rims sitting in the corner of my garage. Haven't had the time to find a quality shop to powder-coat them although my dad said he knows a good one here locally. Also trying to decide what tires to go with. I was also thinking of sending it to ECR have them do some of the work I want done.
