You could squeeze it in the cargo area. It would just squish the bottom seat cushion a little. I found an another one exactly like it and was gonna do that but then I figured I didn't really need a third row.

Sam's 110 resurrection

Finally got all the wiring done (except for a radio, which I haven't bought yet). I also painted all my doors. Last of the painting, woohoo! Put in my new windshield from Stephen at Safari hp. I used to be an auto glass installer but anyone could install one of these. Simple rope in job. I also purchased insurance. Hope to have it registered in about a week or so. I cant wait to drive it around somewhere other than our sub-division. I also got the dash mostly together. Just need to finish the center section/radio area.

I got the smog done today on my truck. It passed. Weird to see it out of the garage. Got the a/c system charged. Works good so far. The true test will be when it gets hot out. Won't be long here. Took 3 trips to the DMV to get the registration done. My new license plates will read: DFENDER

4.2 ltr from a 94 RR classic. I've been driving it around this weekend and it drives real nice. It doesn't feel sluggish at all.

Interior update: I finished my dash. I custom made a center panel with some tweeters, extra 12v lighter socket for a phone charger and a radio with bluetooth so I can talk on the phone while driving. Pretty cool. I also installed a large speaker under the passenger seat for some base too. 5 speakers in total.
I also custom made a center console so that the gear select and center armrest are ergonomically located. Lots of storage inside. Now i just need some cup holders. I also wrapped the transmission tunnel in outdoor black carpet being carful not to glue over the screw heads so i can fold the carpet back later if I need to remove it.

Sam's 110 resurrection

So I wasn't thrilled with the the amount of heat and sound transfer I was getting from the engine to the interior although I'm sure is not as bad as some of you diesel guys endure. So, I bought this thermal heat/sound insulator material from Summit Racing. It's aluminum on one side and some kind of heat resistant insulator on the other. It can withstand 1750 degrees they say. It's peel and stick. It was $140 for a 42" by 48" piece but I want something high quality so i didn't have to revisit this issue. It's really cool stuff and after seeing the product in person Im happy with the quality. I put it behind the engine, under part of the front floor boards, inside the tunnel and under the center console in the center seat box area. So far it seems to be reducing heat and sound transfer. It wasn't an easy install though, I had to remove the exhaust y-pipe, air filter, transmission tunnel and make a pattern of some pieces out of cardboard before cutting them.

Project updates

I put in a brand new NAS brake booster and master cylinder. It definitely stops better now. I also got my new license plates. I'm now in the process of putting in a new VDO electronic speedometer and tachometer. Already put in the new VDO temp gauge. Once you make one of these project trucks your daily driver you find out all the little stuff you want to tweak till its just right.

Project update

Now that this truck is my daily driver I'm tweaking a few thing I'm just not happy with. I thought my old gauges would work but I ended up replacing every single one with a new VDO gauge. My favorite is my new speedometer run by wire instead of a cable. What a great thing. I also swapped out my ribbed roof with a newer style one and decided to ditch the white and just make it body color. Now that it's done I love it. I also just got new BFG KM2's all around (285/75/16). They look tough, my freeway rpm's came down a bit, the truck sits higher, and it still fit's in the garage (barely). Also I was getting a little of that 'death wobble' between 50 and 55mph that it now gone thanks to the new tires. I think one of my fronts had a shifted belt or something. The truck drive like a dream now. Guess I shouldn't have bought used tires off of Craig's list first time around.

Yes. The brush bar is hanging on the wall in the garage. I decided that it was like big ugly glasses on a beautiful face. Lol
