The quality is incredible and they are very comfortable. For defenders the seat bottom lifts up. The defender seat brackets are very well designed and made.

They are the nicest thing in or in my rig.

That is absolutely wonderful news, Anthony ! ! !

So pleased to hear what you think of the quality and comfort.

Please do let us know when Toby is up and running

Thanks !

Rotopax 2 gal cans finally mounted to the exorack on the spare tire.
This setup is expandable to a total of 4 2-gal cans so I can mix and match as required.
Also added new struts to the lift gate giving me some much needed head room over what it came with.

Last week I disassembled my rear sliding windows and took the glass to the tinter. Today I installed new plastic slides (Thanks Zack!) and the Garrison replacement rubber channel kit. The plastic runners just snap in place and if you haven't used the Garrison kit you need to. Pure quality and his online videos take you thru the entire process with easy. Tomorrow I'll reinstall the windows on the truck.

Hell yes! If you need new plastic window tracks it is also the time to replace them. I got mine from Zack at RN.

I'm guessing window tint is a necessity in the Land of Burning Tar....
What percentage is that and what is legal?
What's it typically cost to have a pro tint job of a 5dr 110??
Looks great.

Crap tint can be had for $200-300 at pretty much any carwash in Arizona. I'm going with high UV rejecting ceramic tint from a specialty tint shop. His SUV price is $700 BUT because of the Defender wow factor and the fact that I took apart the rear sliding windows and am installing new rear door glass he is charging me $500. The back will be 5% limo tint and the front will be probably 35% or so tint. AZ law says anything goes on the back and the fronts need to be 33% or lighter so 35% is legit legal.
