What cause the damage? Corrosion or vibration?

BTW, that snorkel looked good to me. What was wrong with it? Look or function?

There was no corrosion on the diamond plate, I just want to see how it would look in black. I'm going to go with all black accents (including wheels) and dark tint.

The snorkel just bothered me. It looked like garbage. In general the truck was pretty rough when I got it.

Fitted the Ashcroft pedal.





It will take some more time to get these parts in line:

Been preparing to yank out the 19J. Down to just rear trans mounts, disconnecting the axles, and slave cylinder. Time to yank that lump out!

Debating whether to yank the engine first, then slide the transmission/transfer case forward, and then remove it in a second pull. My guess is yes, there will be less swearing. The trans/transfer case are supported on a transmission jack, so it will be able to roll easily, but won't be able to slide out any way other than through the engine bay. Thoughts?

The transmission will slide out if you put the truck up on 4 wheel ramps.

Depends on how much space you have around your truck. Easiest to do is pull out as one unit, tranny and engine together with the radiator and radiator panel taken out so you don't have to worry about the angle and height to pull it out all as one unit. Or lack of height under the truck. Trust me it makes life so much easier to have the radiator and rad panel removed as well.

Took off my factory fiberglass hard top for summer!

Yesterday I took off my Land Rover Defender 90 factory fiberglass hard top for the summer and have a brand new RN soft top to go on it soon. But think I will keep it topless for a bit. What a difference it makes, it totally transforms the vehicle!

I had read the factory instructions on how to install the hard top (available on this forum) several times over and pretty much did it in reverse. I have to say it was significantly easier than I thought, and took about an hour and a half with just myself until I had to take the roof piece off which I got my wife to help me with. The top is in great shape but before winter I will likely re-seal the windows since one in particular was leaking in a car wash or heavy rain.

I will say I thought I would never want to deal with taking it off but after this experience I'm not intimidated and will likely do it each season. As long as you go slow, don't force anything, it's quite easy and I just love driving it in this warm weather with no top at all!

One of the solenoid posts on the starter loosened up and shorted out. Managed to bridge jump the solenoid with a pair of pliers and a screw driver long enough to get the old diesel 2.5 n/a started. I will say it never turned over as fast as it did when I bypassed the solenoid (i have owned it for 9 months) so I ordered up a new starter and will hopefully get it on by Tuesday. One less headache hopefully...

Finally got the RRC's y pipe rebuilt and stuck back in. It's not super pretty but it works and won't ever get clogged again.

What's daunting is that there are about 50 different bolt and nut head sizes in just this process of removing the engine.
