Hubs are now repacked and better than new. I expect the rest of this will now come together rather quickly.

Body is mostly together.

Still need to install:
1. Brake line
2. Lights
3. Deep dish rims and tires

And that will likely be it, for now...

Funny. On beautiful days like today, we all look like the dog.

No, not my property...But I am fortunate to get to enjoy it often.

Wondering when we're going to see the trailer with the LR adapter and wheels on?

You wont believe this but I am so pissed off with Motorsport Tech and Lenny out there.

First of all in their order confirmation, I have to correct the spelling of my home town which was sent to them via email and phone.

Secondly I have to chase them to produce the parts. Promised the adapters same as yours two weeks after ordering. Chased via Email twice after two weeks and by phone getting no response. Finally I get through to them and Lenny promises the adapters two weeks ago or a month after ordering. They shipped them out yesterday.

Only one more problem. They can't even get the address to ship to correct. They sent them to some place in California and I'm in Massachusetts.

How incompetent can they be?

Should I order from China next time?

Sorry to hear about this...my experience was different.

On the bright side, they do make the adapter when many others I tried did not.

I hope the product exceeds your expectations.

Best of luck.

I was venting pretty good there wasn't I?

Ups says even if they redirect the shipment on Monday since it was sent ground it won't get here for another ten days.

Grrrrrrrr. As long as the guy running the milling and drilling machine knows what he's doing then that's all that really matters in the long term.

Looks great! So when are you back up here to test it out?. Time to take off the " bunny slopes" and onto the good trails...

Wow. I am simply amazed at how well the ride improved with the added weight of the tire carrier.

Carey,
You scare me. But always up for a challenge. Unfortunately, it will have to wait until next summer, at best... Still here in MN.

On a similar note, I was hoping to make it to the National Rally in CO this year, but the timing conflicts with the arrival of my 3rd child! Arrrg....The first thing I do to welcome this child into this world is spank it and ground it.

Finally got around to making a few needed enhancements to the D90 to accommodate the 5th member of the family and improve the overall safety for the kids.

1. Moved ARB compressor and locker switches to dash...with factory looking dash switches.
2. Added front middle seat, positioned rearward with seat risers and three point seatbelt.
3. Extended rear bench seat backrest and added adjustable headrests.

Curious how you customized the switches, laser etch, engraving? I've been looking at doing this for my 130.

Purchased the switches from Daniel. Cost was slightly less due to the favorable exchange rate. Install was straight forward and customer service was top notch.

Jim. You can also have blank covers engraved from the back. You'll need to drill a hole for the light.
