Wow! Congrats! I love the back portion of the cage! Best of luck on your project. Can you post more pics of the cage please? I need some ideas and motivation!

The plan was to shoot the shit out of it on the range but I managed to talk them out of that. I will put some more pics up tonight.
Travis,
I'd still love to see some photos of the R-SOV. Can you post some for us?
Thanks,
Mike

That is by far and away the baddassest of the badass of Roverdom in the USA. That it is a Special Forces truck that may have even been in combat makes it simply untouchable as far as rarity and coolness go for any vehicle let alone a Defender. Getting it home without having to run it thru a tub grinder is unheard of.
I assume it is like the ones that we see on the Mall during Armed Forces Appreciation days in the springtime. The SF tent always had them on display along with all their other kill-em-dead gear. If that's so then it must be handled carefully and not made into some weekend trail rig, or even any kind of daily driver. It needs and deserves a careful no expense spared restoration right down to the radio gear and MREs. Please tell us you will!
I think I know a guy who can hook you up with a (non firing) .50 for it.

So I traded off the truck. I am just not able to do the restore right now. I am working on a D110 and it worked out better to have that one in a better home. It was a very cool truck and I am sure it will look hot when Stephen gets it done.
