  1. Rover Accessories auxiliary fuel tank
  2. 4.6-liter RR engine
  3. 1.4:1 D110 transfer case
  4. the LR Safari roof rack ... not the basket, which I sold, but all the underpinnings and rear ladder, to which I've attached all manner of paraphernalia
  5. Homemade snorkel
And here's another twist ... the most USELESS add-ons:
  1. OEM wrap-around brush guard
  2. OEM running boards
  3. Mud flaps
  4. Tornado air management system (I admit it, I fell for it)

Corrected for you. :P
That steam whistle rocked. No one, and I mean no one was loosing you in the woods. What happened to it?

I should talk... after recent developments, I should actually drop something from my list and add "(2) Fire Extinguishers" to it.

LOL, great list! The wistel needs air pressure and without a compressor I can't run it. I was going to buy one from someone here for $50 but they never got back to me.
