NAPA! Sweet. I will review the discount vendor list. For the price it's great to know wife (probably with car full of kids) just dials the 800 number if I am out of town/country.

whoa! Carl, that is awesome...you could buy some more and have a completely flat load space, with tie down points and all....double up hauling space!

That is sweet - how did you attach the load bars to the tub?

He had not yet - I built this version earlier last year for a series customer


Using mounting rails bolted to the inside of the capping and risers to hold the rack in place.

Similar to what I had done on my 130 back in May - Tent on it in the summer and rack under the hood in the winter

The tub already have 8 threaded bolts build into the sides so using rails would be redundant for my situation. I've mocked up a bracket design that mounts directly to the tub. I can post pictures later. Speaking of which, does anyone know how much (approximately) height a fridge slider adds to the overall fridge height? If anyone has a Luna weekender with a slider I'd appreciate a height measurement. I'm guessing it doesn't add more than 1/2" - 1" or so?

I've started a new thread for the conversion of my Front Runner rack in the small projects section.

It's called Front Runner Shelf Conversion for D90

Used a 200 tdi snorkel on my 2.5 mod. Used 2.5 vacuum hose (will be well away from exhaust and secured to prevent chafing) might upgrade hosing depending on durability results. I ran the hose from the filter box all the way to the top (cap) of the snorkel. Waiting on some hardware to finish securing snorkel and under hood hosing.

Any issue getting the hose past the heater?

Well hell...

Had to shuffle cars and ended up with the 90 at the dealer.

Decided to go ahead and have new thermostat and coil put in....

I know...I know.... Easy stuff to do...

Charged me FIVE HUNDRED DOLLARS!!😳

2 1/2 hours labor, $170 for coil, $10 for thermostat, $25 for antifreeze....

How long does book say it should take?

Didn't even get a reach around....

The book time is meaningless for a Defender because anything involving a Defender at the dealership is rarely straight forward. At most I would say you were overcharged by an hour of labor.

Land Rover of Tulsa? Friendly people when I've talked to them on the phone, but I've always been forced to buy from other places because their prices are so high on everything. I cannot imagine they have much overhead in that tiny building, unless they've moved somewhere since I last drove by there.

Put the D90 on jack stands and she'll be nestled in my garage until the roads are salt-free.
I got some projects this winter: rebuild the door tops, dynamat the door bottoms, and replace the cross seals in the rear main and buff it with a kitten...

Don't get me wrong, they are great and do first class work and always treat me very, very well, I guess I was just in shock that a coil was 170 bucks.

Do coils go bad? I had it replaced because I am pretty sure it was the original coil.
