Not my Defender but installed a new steering relay on my series IIA last night, the old one had a considerable amount of play in it and it was fairly rusted in place. Tried jacking it out with a floor jack to no avail, after many hours of deliberation between my dad and I; we got 12 feet of chain from Home Depot and wrapped that around the frame where the steering box is located and around the end of the floor jack. We placed a piece of 12" long half inch black iron plumbing pipe screwed into a flange with a coupler to center around the lower shaft on the steering relay. It took some adjusting of the chain as it got tighter to keep the jack from rolling off center as the end of the jack was no longer supported on the ground. The steering relay finally budged and out came the rusted hulk. I then honed out the cylinder it came out of in the frame as there were bits of rusted swarf still lodged in it, cleaned with brake cleaner and coated with blaster and tapped the new steering box in place. Today I installed two new greasable tie rod ends on the steering rod linking the relay to the passenger side wheel, the great feat in this of course was getting the old tie rod ends off. We soaked these in blaster and tapped the ends of the track rod with a hammer after removing the locking clamp, using a breaker bar freed the old tie rod ends which also had quite a bit of play in them. Also installed new Britpart shocks all around today. Now the steering is responsive and tight, have to take the truck to get it aligned and it will be a much better driver then.

Mounted and wired up the smittybilt 12k that I got on amazon warehouse deals super sale.

Used 2/0 wire from the batt to a 2/0 rated forklift connector then clipped the stock 0 gauge cable and double crimped it in the larger 2/0 lugs.

Loosely spooled the cable and then noticed that the Hawse Fairlead is too high and the holes will have to be slotted to avoid chafing on the bumper frame.

All parts from Amazon. The forklift connector is really nice and I plan to find a nice set of 2/0 jumpers and make a jumper line that will fit it.

Any chance you've got your old stock muffler for the 90 you want to part with?

Thanks, but it's for the NAS 90, so looking for a stock/genuine standard muffler (part #WCE104000, like below).

With folks "upgrading" away from the stock exhaust, figured there may be some "old take offs" floating around out there since I seem to bash the hell out of mine every wheeling trip .

Is that the 300 setup on a 200 ? getting the 300 intake house to route behind the cyl head between it and the bulkhead can be a mother. Did you use the 300 mount held on by two head bolts ?

Rift, how does that big closed can draw air better than an open cone filter??

On my 7.3 diesel, I converted it to a huge open cylinder filter instead of the small flat factory thinking the more air in= the better!

Cone air filters and cold air intakes were the biggest marketing joke of the last fifteen years.

Great for space savings and cheap installs. Terrible for noise and actual filtering.
