It is expensive but the quality is there. JuSt got back from running a 7-11 trip. It drives like a new truck. No steering rub squeaks and just feels good. The new land rover logo in the center looks nice.

So I am pushing it around Lake Hughes Road which is a favorite among the sport bike crowd. Anyway, I do have the 3 inch lift and long travel 7100s BUT I do run both the front and rear sways because 99.9% of the driving lately is on the road and at time with the kids in the car. I am running the rovertym springs. I took a 15mph hairpin turn at lets say 25 and oversteer takes place as the tail whips around the truck. Of course if I really remained calm and counter steered and throttle I could have recovered it but I am not that smart. I am running 33sx12 on 15 inch beadlocks which gives it a much wider stance. I think these trucks just out handle anything in their class. Road conditions were dry.

Hell of a story. You say 'not that smart' and you could have counter-steered... counter steering could have very easily resulted in an over-correction and then regaining of traction... which would have definitely flipped you.

Got the Dizzy wired, the exhaust done, and the power steering buttoned up. Just have to sort out the alternator wiring to the RRC alternator.

Then put the radiator and front end bits back in. Once that's complete I'll start praying and turn the key.....

I've never seen that before, seems like a pretty cheap upgrade. Was it difficult to install?

The hardest part about the install is where to locate the motor. If you have door speakers as I do, your only real option is to mount it so the motor hangs just above the speaker. You use existing mounting points so everything else is fairly simple. I have Carling switches mounted in a Mud center console, so I just purchased two additional Mom-off-Mom DP switches and used those for the windows. Total time per window is probably an hour. The convenience of power windows is definitely worth the $138 (plus the switches).

Yes cruise control. My issue is i dont think they are on/off switches. Would be awesome for volume control and track skip but it would take some serious hack master job to make that happen.

I swapped out Terrafirma TF023V (300-340 lbf/in) rear springs for TF015's (220 lbf/in). 300lbf/in was just too stiff. It's nice to keep body roll in control on the highway, but I thought my teeth were going to fall out at slower speeds. It's great to be able to swap springs in less than 30 minutes with a hi-lift

So far I'm liking TF014's up front and TF015's in the rear. We'll have to see if that changes. This is with 10" fox emulsions up front and 12" remote res in rear.

So close I can taste it.

A big thank you to Justin and the Lucky8 crew for taking care of all my parts needs to get the 110 back on the road.

You can't tell me that radiator doesn't look pretty in there
