I know a spot that we could do it unofficially but requires either the Suffolk County or NYS 4x4 permit.

installed a pair of TerraFirma tree sliders on the D90. Got them with the discount @ Lucky8. Super fast shipping from NY to CA!

The box the TerraFirma sliders came in has AllMakes4x4 on it.. I can only assume TerraFirma OEM's them?
Anyways, took a good few hours to remove the original trims due to rusted retaining nuts and bolts. This is a CA truck.. I can't imagine what those would be like for trucks that see snow and lots of rain. I did get help from a small dewalt 18v impact gun (100 ftlb) for the smaller nuts and a big dewalt impact wrench (300 ftlb)to remove the bulkhead nut.
The job was made more difficult with my aux tank, not giving much room to remove bulkhead nut.... The aux tank is main reason for the sliders - help mitigate side impact, and now I also have a place to stand to access roof rack.

After removing the old stuff... the new sliders went on in about 10min each slide.

The nut needed a swivel 19mm... and the impact went at it for about a minute total before the nut got loose. Darn rust!

We had a good time. Did some biking, ate at Caracas Rockaway (we can eat our own body weight in Arepas).

I'm down for a Montauk trip. I'll look into permits... I mean it's NY how hard can it be :/

I go to Caracas enough that I had to learn how to make arepas because I was spending too much money there.

Made a start on refurbishing my 8274 front winch.... stripped, cleaned, media blasted and a fresh coat of paint. It'll be getting a GP heavy duty main shaft, friction discs and a 6.5hp Xp motor with Albright contactor. Rear will just get stripped, cleaned, painted and a good overhaul.

Yeah we used to go to the one in your hood pretty regularly. Now we are all about Vietnamese Sandwiches in Elmhurst (Joju).

Joined the 25% of Defenders who made it home...or at least to the dealership.

Dead battery in Paris, push started and drove for a few hours, then Three Amigos say hi, limp mode, then dead.

At least this occurred at the end of a two week Germany, Switzerland, Italy, France trip.

Not really work "done to my Defender" but I made something so I could make parts for the Defender.

New welding table framed out of some scraps and a 2 new sticks of 1.5" square tube. It's 3x5 and I am planning on using C channel on the top so will have clamp points and hopefully have a flat surface (if I weld plate to this frame now it won't be flat).

Btw - welding in the heat the last 2 weeks has kinda stunk! Can't wait to finish it up so I can finish my tub mods.

I just machined this clamp from some scrap aluminum and had it powder coated. Now I just have to wire it up.

wow...looks solid!

I really like the convenience of system 28 tabletops, but they are really unnecessary. Your table looks more solid than most system 28's I've seen.
