Curious how the new tire size will effect power and acceleration? I think they "look" right.

Prepped and tried rubberized paint on the x-member. Looks good for now...not sure how durable it will be.

Better than hot dipping, or God forbid, electro-plating! (Although I'm pretty sure there is a website for that kind of thing!) lol Where's Shayne? He knows all this stuff! ;-)

You know I have to play around with silver surfer Charles ...he seems fun ...why did you edit the names from saying Brewie to Shayne? They are both cool also..

On board air added (ARB CKMA12) in the Right side cubby box, For now the switch is located there since its just for tires and the moment.
I moved my Truck-lites back to the Defender from the Jeep as well.

Since my truck is not really running (waiting on a new fan shroud) I figured it'd be a good time to install the ARB awning. Its perfect for when you are waiting on the tow truck and want to stay out of the sun. Thanks to Jason for the help putting it on!
