I didn't even think about that, Doug, good point. My first thought was that wouldn't having the speakers there also greatly reduce the security feature of the tuffy console?

Someone going to take the speakers out to break into the cubby?

It's possible, but I used security head screws and tack welded the speakers to the side of box. Plus they are marine grade speakers and have a sizeable steel structure. Someone would be fiddling with the box for quite a while to break in to it.

I follow you. I didn't like the effect that came with the raised seat. The truck I'm building @ the moment has exmoors new reclining second row seats which are a pretty cool design and accomplish both. Pricey though.

Great idea on the security head screws.

I applaud your ingenuity on the screws but did you really need them in a wagon? Well you impressed Horsey so I guess it was a good idea.

Finished the seat box and got the seats installed today. I bent up some 22ga steel panels and wrapped the seat box, riveting them on to mimic the Rover panels. I then applied a coat of bed liner inside and out to match the rest of the interior. The NAS seats then bolted in nicely. Next up is the center console and new seat belts.

Looks awesome, and damn you are fast. I think I washed a load mat and undid about 8 bolts and 10 screws in the time it took you to build that

And quickly replaced for a set of Exmoor reclining seats ( 2 HB 1 LB )

one note on speakers mounted in the cubby box. Don't ever put your wallet in there-I had one briefly and the magnets wiped the magnetic strips on a couple of cards.

Installed the brand new galvanized steel middle row doors, Disco grab handles (a request from the wife), fabbed up a new dual battery mount, and fabricated new overhead light protectors. I think the new ones in round tube look better.

Next up, and arriving next week:
1. Tom Woods HD drive shafts front and rear.
2. X-Brake
3. Rear center console
4. X-Deflex unlockable rear sway bar
5. 4.11 gears

Very interested to hear what you think of that sway bar. Saw that in Justins film clip from Billing and thought it was a very cool idea.

I had a long chat with Si from X-Eng while we were wheeling and he convinced me to do it. While my truck is fine empty without sway bars it becomes a scary beast fully loaded with an RTT. I'll have to do a slight change in the install and attach it to the Equipe skid plate vice the frame.

Installed the Tuffy center console in the middle row. It's a 10" and I am wishing I did the 12". It makes the middle row much more comfortable for the kids though.

Also installed some headlamp guards in lieu of a brush guard.

Are you going to fabricate some cup holders for the back seat?

What are the odds you'd consider a production version of that bumper for sale?

Not enough profit for the amount of labor involved unless I mass produce like RW, RT, and SG. I'll shoot you an email and we can discuss.
