Uh no....they are the product names...

Troy boxes are just that, made by Troy...and they are rear storage boxes..
These are keyed to my tuffy console locks so I have one key for all lockable storage

Psyoptic development makes the the light bracket

Not me. I have a set of John's XD sliders and the light bracket to boot! I was just joking about how you chose to block your license plate in the photo ;-)

By the way, does your license plate have anything to do with the Big island?

Cool! Lucky guess. I always like the big Island, but my families on Maui now.

Funny both are builders in the cottage industry for defenders... Here in the U.S.... No brands like your thinking
Anyway the boxes are huge and match the contours of the tub.

Its not about the brand. Its the relationship to you and your feeling about it and relationships around it.
Can read a lot about people in their posts online. In return, analyzing them helps you analyze yourself and get to the heart why you do what you do and if that's reasonable.

Cultural anthropology/psychology/marketing. Fun stuff.

For anyone interested, I put together a little play-by-play document on how to bypass the ignition switch for anyone that may have this failure in the field. For obvious reasons I don't want to post it direct, but anyone interested shoot me an email (no pm please as I'm almost over my limit) and I'll send you the document.

lets call this over analyzing it today.. actually today was a good Rover day.. this stuff installed and a temp fix on a Sii@ exhaust manifold..

coming up for me is a Y-pipe replacement.. which my license plate hiding technique is appropriate for.. Otherwise i thought it was funny..

<btw... I grok Marketing, history and anthropology.. One i do today, others well from school...i guess thats why i travelled so much..) />

Broke down tire carrier, sandblasted, re-poweder coated, and put in new brass bushings.

I would not recommend doing a bushing replacement without a slide hammer. It took much longer than everything else combined

Installing a new tub floor...6061-T6 .125" aluminum. Almost twice as thick as stock, and more than twice the tensile strength.

Sounds good, Don. I'll make a separate thread with the details.

The original tub floor is pretty soft stuff and warps/dents quite easily.

Are you going to be putting indentations in the new aluminum floor? It was suggested to me by a friend that by doing so would increase floor strength...I'm just not sure about having those rather than a flat floor.
