Now just need to seal up all the holes around the doors and some of the ehat might actually stay inside the vehicle.
Thanks for the details, Brian.

That is my hope, too

Cables are down the external cage bar and under the wing. I really like the size and the out put, and they are the sport model, and more than enough. The real pop though is the two new light force LEDs on the A bar. Pricey but very powerful!

You waited this long? Yes I know your lines had sleeves on them but really?

I don't get how people can own something as valuable as a defender and then get cheap or lazy on small stuff. This and the guy who wanted a used light switch floors me. Pennywise, truck burning to the ground, pound foolish.

Hey at least you got a hardtop so your kid can't escape as it burns to the ground. Safety first!

Calm down Barry or you'll shoot in your pants. My lines were replaced with new genuine ones and sleeves added prior to my purchase. Plenty of people replace with genuine new lines. Now get up off of the floor.

To quote Horsey - "Use the search function" The genuine lines are garbage and plenty of people can attest to buying news ones and them cracking instantly because of being new old stock. I'm sure with the sleeves you were probably fine but it still cracks me up that you would own the truck this long and get boosts, a hardtop and whatever other crap was fashionable before dealing with something that was actually useful to long term ownership.

I was told by multiple shops the lines were fine, but please do let me know what I should do next so I can tell the guys I'm paying $120/hr what's really right by the forum expert. Glad I was able to crack you up, bud.

For what it's worth the used light switch was recommended to me by another board member as a cheep way to troubleshoot the headlights...

I'm learning as I go along.

That is understandable. You should have said that in your thread to stop the mockery.

You need to find a new shop. There is literally pages and pages on oil lines on this site. I guess you missed it in the hardtop search. Not to mention you have had the truck for years now. You had no excuse.

Just flew in, walked the dog, and plugged in the NEW switch I got from RN. Headlights work!

I'll install the switch and put the plastic bits back in place in the morning.

Excuse for what? Nothing happened, my mechanic must have been right. If you want to insult my shop by telling them they know nothing then come on out to VA and bring that attitude, we would love to meet your smart ass.

Has anyone that has had their oil cooler lines replaced with Genuine ones had them fail? I'd like to see an example of Genuine ones that have cracked instantly after installing, and I'd also like to know if they were bought through a dealer or aftermarket parts supplier. You sound like one of those people that thinks if you don't switch to synthetic oil immediately your motor will explode.

For the record, I agree that the upgraded oil cooler liners are a superior option over Genuine, but Genuine is cheap for me. I replaced mine with Genuine ones and will again in probably 10 years.

Valid point.

I have no clue where the ones that exploded came from. Now I would say I would put my horsey hat on and search but I don't care enough.

As for the attitude webeceya, three seconds ago you lived in Colorado and didn't know how to remove a bumper for powdercoat so excuse me if what a shop told you doesn't hold much water for me. I do like your Virginia pride though. Good for you for routing for the local team.


Also where were your great shops when it came to fixing your range rover?

And for everyone else I am in no way bashing Virginia.
