Ooh, some genuine dirt sounds awfully tempting. How about a voucher to be shop sweeper for a day? That way I can get all the dirt I can stuff in my pockets

So I guess that's Carey's CJ-3B in the background of that last pic then.
Damn Horsey, you got some eyes on you.

Ah, no. My 3B is tucked away nicely at home. The Heep in question is a Rover eating TJ Wrangler.

That's a pretty good observation to see the Jeep in that pic. You guys are scary....

I saw the Jeep - it's what made me question it was ECR!

Don't worry, the Jeep is out numbered about 50 to 1.
It belongs to one of the guys here, but it hasn't been on the road in years.

I do not check PMs. Call or email if you need something.

ECR is not a parts source. We are not in the mail order business.

Cleaning the galv out of the loops where the vent cover pins are was almost worse than drilling out the holes.
I used a locally bought drill bit that could only be described as "long as hell".

Its about 6.5-7 hours from NY to Rockland. We've done the drive several times, its a really easy trip. Plus Maine has so much good stuff other than Rovers that we keep going back.

I moved the rack partly because its the only one I have that is RTT compatible. My plan is to reverse the rack when the tent is on it so that it opens over the back and then I'll just use a ground ladder.

The tent was on the 90 too long this year anyway, I never meant it to be a styling accessory, and I usually just have it on during the summer months. This year however, I needed the RTT's space in the garage for misc 110 parts.

The kids adore the RTT, so I definitely have to take it to Europe. I'm hoping sometime in 2011 or 2012 to go park somewhere along the Tour de France route, pop the tent, drink beer, hang out.

Its the Elite unit, which is the only one I know of. Unfortunately, its NLA.

Mine's not installed, so no pix. Its the exact same unit as the one has in their pix.
