#1 needs NRC5478 on top
#2 = NRC8641
The outrigger brackets are NRC7053

It looks like these are available (not NRC5478) and worth buying vs making.

While I have your attention, do you know offhand if the footwell angles are different between the series and defender bulkheads? I ask because I have the series style bracket that attaches to the frame and footwell, but suspect I should get the defender style one now. Any other stuff you can think of while I'm on a shopping spree?

Thanks,
charles

Dave, just saw your post. Ok, understood that they are not needed, but I figure for $17 plus shipping it's a no brainer to get those brackets to support one of them, and the other I can leave or easily fab up. Just trying to get my ducks in a row before the next galvy run.

Good to know about the seat belt brackets and totally agree I can do them later.

I don't think being cautious is a bad thing. I have to weld the rear crossmember on and need to get that in the right position (I didn't cut the old off).

Footwell a are shaped different. Not sure how much and not sure of the angle difference. What I would run would depend on what steering I was planning on using.

When I put the chopped 100" tub on the RRC frame I had no reference points in the rear. What I went off was transmission crossmember and forward, as this is the same from defender to rrc. From that I located the bulkhead first and went backwards and put the sills in place to locate the tub and the last was the rear crossmember.

It seems that you can work off the location of the tub since you have those tabs in the front of the tub. From there you could bolt that in and put the rear crossmember in so that it hits the tub.

That's where I am at right now. The pads for the tub ribs give pretty good placement guides as well. There is room for movement though so I think I'd feel better having the outrigger mounts in place before welding in the crossmember. But otherwise I think it will all fall into shape.

I have lots of other stuff to do so this shouldn't hold me up. But I am going to get the outrigger mounts before going further with fitting the tub. I can figure out space for batteries like this and still have the bulkhead to fix and a number of other tasks before getting the crossmember welded in becomes a limiting factor.

I forgot to answer this. Like the rest of the truck, defender underneath, series on top. So series steering wheel and shaft mated to a defender steering gearbox.

I would use the series brackets then.
