I"m all for an "Ex MOD" section but there are some many varieties of that definition it is mind boggling.

When you consider what has been coming across the pond there is every flavour around these days.

I tend to concur that the forum search feature tends to pull up most posts but it is all down to people correctly tagging their thread or post to make it searchable.

I am responsible for a 101FC GS LHD a 101FC Ambulance and a LR 90 with 2.5 na diesel all ex MOD but very different beasts if you see what I mean.

You guys can/should also join the Ex-Military Land Rover Association - EMLRA for short - if you haven't already.

Their forum is a ghost town. I even registered ex-mod.org, thinking I might start my own forum some day but I just don't think there's enough interest.

I'm curious what if any resistance is there with this boards operator(s) to the creation of an ExMOD section?

It's likely a factor of keeping things as organized as possible, and as segmented as necessary. Keeping the forum as simple and open as possible results in greater interaction between a larger number of members, and a lot of the technical advice that is applicable to most ex-mod trucks may also be applicable to non-ex-mod trucks. This means that technical discussions regarding an ex-mod truck may actually be applicable and beneficial to many non-ex-mod defender owners, so making that discussion as visible as possible is also important. Add the fact that there are so many model variations within ex-mod defenders themselves, that the perceived value of segmentation is low.

Any of the board moderators could put an end to this thread in a single post.

I'm pretty sure nothing was said here when the thread first started because it looked like you guys came to the right conclusion. Josh nailed it. But it's ok to keep discussing it

I'm not sure about the ex-mod section but the idea of and engine specific section sounds like a great idea! I'm always having problems finding stuff about the 3.5l v8 in my 110
