I ordered the Rovers North version, which ends up being the WAECO MSH60 / MSH601. It comes with switches, four elements, two for the bottom, two for the back. The wiring harness is pretty good, and the switch is easy to use (20 mm hole) or you can wire up something else if you are inclined. I went for easy. There is a video that is on Atlantic British that shows how to recover your seats, it's a good one, as it's how to undo the existing upholstery in detail. After watching it, I had the courage to do this, and now in the future will most likely cover my own seats with their kit (Exmoor's kit actually). Hope that helps.
BTW, used my heaters today... so nice!

Replaced headliner

My headliner was sagging so I removed and recovered. Installed it this weekend and installed rear speakers whilst I was about it.

Apologies for the sideways pictures!

Stuck with a stock shaft - for now. Not sure I want to go double-cardon (actually pretty sure I don't), so for now it was a placeholder until I can circle back and figure out what I really want. Ideally I want something that still accepts the standard U-joints (GKN's or Precision 344s) as I don't like straying to something that has a one-off different component than everyone else (in case of trail failure & unilateral spares/etc).

Went through Lucky8, but ended up doing Tibus HD fronts & CVs, and rears are the K.A.M. HD's. Had already been running HD reads but just wanted a "fresh set" with new splines to match up with my new ARB RD128s, and then the old ones could go in the trailer as spares.

Don't forget if you go HD rears you'll need new flanges as well (just the outside covers/caps).

Crawled underneath before the rains came down. Didn't stay long just wanted to check the exhaust. It seems noisier......Nothing obvious though.

What's wrong with just running the stock front driveshaft?

I've been going through UJs every 10k miles, and my old one failed at the actual shaft union of the two halves. So was thinking of maybe just an "upgraded" single-cardon version....but you are correct, there's a good chance I may just end up rolling the stock version indefinitely.

Well, that's a bummer!

It rained today and so I tried my latest "mod"....switching from 13 inch wipers to 11 inch wipers.

For years, I have been battling an issue with my wipers - no matter where I would place them on the splines, they would wipe larger and larger areas as the windshield got wetter and then the wipers would start slapping the windshield seal or frame. It was always at the bottom or the side, and it was very, very annoying. I tried taking everyone's advice and tightening/adjusting the wheelboxes, etc. Nothing helped.

The 11 inch wipers have solved the over-shooting problem. No more slapping on either the side or bottom of the windshield!

order received. New PAS Gearbox, High Pressure line, Brembo discs (rear) textar vented rotors (front) and bosch pads/hardware, plugs, and a new ignition coil. Royal Purple 15w40 and a K&N filter. RRC getting some much needed love today. And only $700 for all that, new. Not too shabby. Next up, new valve cover gaskets and a full brake flush and bleed this weekend.

Wolf inspired custom Tuffy center console armrest.

Found some waxed cotton that matches the Outlast material quite nicely. Local upholstery guy wouldn't touch the circular hole so I had to tackle it myself. The extra 2 1/2 inches of padded top makes a big difference.

Looking good Mark. Can I ask where you installed the front speakers? I have been working on fabricating something similar for the rear, but am still debating front-speaker placement. If I do the knee-knocking under-dash location it will get in the way if I ever add AC. There's not enough depth in the doors. I'm considering an overhead mount above the bulkhead kind of like a Jeep Wrangler speaker bar OR fabricating a box for behind the front seats / mounted to the bulkead.

------ Follow up post added April 10th, 2017 09:24 AM ------

Installed a galvanized front diff guard.



Replaced front door check strap pins (I was using random bolts as a temporary measure).

Swapped out the steel rims for sawtooth
