Finally got my NAS Defender back from Dubai...new 2" TerraFirma Lift, new bushing kit, and new Coopers. She drives great as far as tracking straight and all, but I notice a vibration when I left off the gas at about 100 kmph...so I have a few questions???
I've read that you can swap out the front drive shaft with a Disco II prop shaft (PN TVB 000100...link below) that has a double-cardan joint that will work better with the angle difference due to the lift kit.
Or will one of these wide angle prop shafts designed by Gwyn Lewis (Link below...UK Company) work just as well? Looks like they make wide-angle shafts for both the front and rear. Any experience with these shafts out there.
Also, my left rear sliding window rattles like a big dog. Can you get the felt strips for the window tracks or do I have to replace the whole assembly?
Last...well, for now anyway...looks like Safety Devices is no longer making roof racks for the NAS Defenders, so that option is out. Plus, not sure I want that much weight on the roof anyway. So, looking at aluminum/alloy options...Rhino, Frontrunner, etc... Does anyone know if these company's have a solution for mounting with the external cage on the NAS models? It appears to me that they are all gutter mounted, which as far as I can tell won't work with the roll cage.
Sorry about the shotgun blast but have many more questions and excited about all the data and knowledge on this site. I'm sure my journey into my new "money pit" is just beginning, but hoping to to be able to learn a lot from this source.
Has anyone fit a Double-DIN radio (new touchscreen multi-media/navigation type) in the lower console where the stock radio is, or is the only option to install a after market console in the center dash? It looks like the shift cable to the transmission is in the way.
Does anyone have any experience with the TerraFirma tube bumper and winch installed on a NAS Defender. Do you have to cut the grill. There's discussion on TF about AC vs. no AC but I think that is referring to the newer Defenders vs. the NAS model.
