Well I just ordered new seat covers for my Puma seats in the D90 from Escape Gear and 2 wheel covers. All for a nice cool 4621.97 Rand! with post!! You can order direct from them and it was easy as pie!!

Loved my old Escape covers...but I know they are in good care!

It currently is a 4.6...everything is being refreshed. Top hats going in the engine, the engine was fine, just tired.

You are supposed to blow up your motor, then replace it.

I've always loved your truck. Keep the updates coming....

I think you should have a garage built solely for your accessories. Haha

I am because Overland felt at liberty to disclose my fortress of solitude I've been combing the west in search of a worthy property to house the parts and accessory collection. Seriously though 12 hours over two days in rough terrain is a killer...and so is the view!

After 17 years this is all of the miscellaneous rust I could find. Pretty good I thought.

Well first you're assuming my gauges work (they do) and second you're assuming I read them...

My D90 is like my Horcrux, it's part of me and I'm part of it...no need for gauges...I feel it....

But no it doesn't interfere with my view of the gauges but to be fair I have a large screen Garmin that I'm always pinching for data also so...

What did you do to mount seat belts? I'm curious as I'm putting in bench seats and I'm not clear on how best to bolt in the seat belts to the tub. Meaning should I reinforce with a steel plate to give extra strength?

I used a TD5 bracket for the lock and fold in the rear tub. A bench uses only a lap belt from what I remember and bolted into a nut welded onto a cross tube. There is good searchable info on this site for all of this for sure.
