EX MOD Vehicle Section

Do you think the increase in Ex MOD trucks coming in to the US would warrant a section specific to these trucks in the technical discussion area? Thanks

Sounds a good idea to me. Also, is there an ex military land rover association over here? Maybe we should try setting one up? Just a thought.

It could be a good thing. A lot of the parts work but not all. The Tithonus is a not like regular exmods or the NAS trucks.

I thought about setting up some Ex-MOD forums and/or an Ex-MOD wiki on my ex-mod.org or ex-mod.info domains but I don't think there's enough traffic to justify.

There's not much that's so different about these trucks. Tithonus kits (discussed in the Tithonus photos thread), Clansman radios and the 24VDC system, and the NATO can lockers. That's about all I can think of, off the bat.

HD axles is a good example. BUT I think of other things we have in common and the fact that every day probably more and more Withams trucks are rolling on to US soil....

Josh, I think what they're trying to say is that there aren't all that many differences between ex-mod defenders and other defenders, and that ex-mod defenders aren't all the same either; i.e. Tithonus vs. other ex-mods may have as many variations between them as any ex-mod vs. a defender for the civilian market.

Would be nice to plan an all exmod event though. I'm dying to use my 6 way light switch to drive with a group at night with only the convoy light illuminated.

Ok, I guess that makes me a dork!

Definitely dorks, I've survived so far with out having to be one of the cool kids, I'd hate to get off my game now! Ex mod trucks have a service life all of their own too, would be cool to work out if any of our trucks have served together in a past life.

I would think making engine specific technical sections would be a good idea. I'm not certain what is so mechanically unique about an ex-mod that it would need its own section.

I know that when I need technical help I am able to search other forums and find it without even having to make a post.

I do understand that there will always be more content on a British Land Rover forum, but, at the very least, there should be a section for NAS trucks with common problems and repairs.

I like the engine focused forum but wonder if it should be simply Diesel or gas orientated.

We don't need focused forums. The tech forum doesn't get enough traffic as is. When you start splitting forums up, you end up with a bunch of ghost towns.

I totally agree, def wasn't arguing this. Just figured I'd put it out there. I do like the engine specific area idea too.

Agree 100%. Keep it simple and leave it alone.

I think the biggest difference between my Ex-Mod 110 and a regular 110 is the 12 extra layers of paint.

I joined Defender Source in March about the same time my wife and I bought our exMoD. This is also when I started my education about the Defender/110/90.

My first thought reading this thread was yes, another section. When I saw the suggestion about an exMoD engine section I thought that made sense as the 2.5D N/A seems to be rare except on exMoD.

But my personal experience here is all my questions have been answered quickly and usefully. So my humble opinion is I don't see a need for a change to the structure here at this time.

these trucks definately have their unique atributes like the 24v alternator in ffr trucks. The anchor for my 7 ton sportfish weighs less.....

With the function of looking at "current" posts on the apps and the list on the list of the real website, the subsections are basically meaningless to me now unless I want to post in the classifieds.
