So for the delay guys, but here are a couple pics of the rigging. It's made of parachute netting and quick release clips that clips into a D-ring that is attached to the roll bar with the same netting. If you have questions feel free to ask.

I think I still win this from my 2008 x-country trip. Loaded the back to the ceiling with crap, packed the roof rack and TRIPLED the max tongue weight on the rear bumper. I had 33's no sway bars and the lower front shock mounts were sitting on top of two hockey pucks (I needed a spacer)

Drove it from NYC to Moab via Colorado and Idaho. I drove the car as you see it in that photo, over Imogene pass. Still to date it's one of the dumbest things I think I've ever done in a car (minus that one time in college..)

That is amazing! (hard to believe the Defender can actually pull that kind of load distribution) Did you drive on two wheels all the way there?

I concede this contest without any any further question!

Though I feel like you should have put a 2" receiver off the front of the truck and put one of the bikes up there!

I have over loaded a 109 with military springs and a 90, but damn that is something else. Im surprised the troopers didnt pull you up.

I didn't calculate the fuel mileage but it was bad. I actually got pulled over in Canada because the cops couldn't see my tail lights. I had to use my phone to show them the website where it was stamped DOT approved to get out of the ticket.

While structurally the truck took it fine, I was hitting the bumpstops all over the place, especially going over Imogene and going up switchbacks on pavement. I think it was Mosquito Pass (name?) that has tons of switchbacks and I remember going around a right hand switchback.. heard the rear left hit the fender well.. and under half throttle in second gear the front right just started spinning on the pavement. For the next two turns I used the diff lock to keep it going. I remember also being able to turn the steering wheel with my pinky
