Pulled out about 30' of old leftover wiring from POs add-on projects, cleaned out battery box, and wired in the Bluesea 7700. Kept the winch on the hot side, since I was worried about AMP draw under load, but may switch it over to the switched side.

Looking nice! Like the integrated vents... And is that the Dakota Digital VHX-1018 cluster? I was wondering how that would look.

Replaced cracked coolant expansion tank, got it Krown sprayed, and the hardest thing was figuring out why the hood would not latch. After messing with just about everything, I took the grill off and noticed both braces at either side that bolt to the frame had come unbolted. Secured a couple bolts and closed no problem. Just figuring stuff out as I go along.

Yet another trip to Nakatanenga.

Bought their new detachable RTT mount, some leather door handles (so my leg is not getting the hard plastic welt), new headlamp rings, as the original 3 year old ones are rusty.

On the 300 TDI, looking for a rear door. Found a source for Genuine doors right around $425 stripped. Not bad.

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 .
