Good to know. I never liked mine because being 6'5 I have to get down on one knee to see and use the damn thing. The door strikers on defenders with push button doors work perfectly so I use those.

Looking good mike...are you planning another long trip with the landy any time soon?

Thanks Ed, no long trips really - three weeks camping in the Forest of Dean and North Wales this summer. Just got on with things because I was home alone for a few days.

Nice bumpers. I like Rockware over other brands. Your truck looks good.

While I'm not so patiently waiting for my new 110 to clear customs in Montreal I've been getting a few small things done.

Powdercoated my old boost rims to replace the tornado rims that are on it now.


And am giving some old range rover lug nuts a vinegar bath

I filled up the tank.

Is diesel cheaper than premium everywhere these days, or is something just weird around here? I might starting daily driving the 90 instead of the LR3.

I got my Terra Firma winch bumper mounted up today on my lunch break. Thanks again to Nomar for bringing it to me from Uwharrie and Erik for taking it down there. It seems like a pretty well built bumper and was easy enough to fit. It sticks out a little further than I would like, but I'm happy with it, especially for the price.







I did run into a small issue when fitting it. The support that attaches further back on the frame where the JATE ring is located was making contact with the transmission cooler line. It was worse on the driver's side, and prevented the back support bolt for lining up easily.





A diamond burr bit on a die grinder took care of it.





I didn't plan on using the JATE rings, but the rear support bracket ended up leaving the perfect gap between the bumper and frame, so I used them instead of washers to fill the gap.

No A/C so it's hot irregardless of the color. I think that any other color wouldn't look good so black it is.

So I was a busy boy the last couple of days. Got a trip at the end of the month and I want to finish off a bunch of small things before I go to the Strip in Northern Arizona. I put in an Ashcroft locker in the rear. Replaced the oil lines with the OK off road ones, nicely done. Mounted the ARB compressor in the left front wing and fabbed up the bike rack for the trailer. That took some time. I had to make taller offsets for the Yakima 1A’s, then make some Faux gutters for the trailer frame. Weld it all up and see if it all fit together. It worked. Have to remove the bike rack to raise the top, but that takes all of 2 minutes. I also made these really inexpensive mounts for the HiLift Jack on the inside mounted to the support tube. They are just U bolts with some vinyl tubing, a plate with two holes drilled in it and a ˝” bolt welded to it, have about $5 into it.. Holds the jack very tightly, but away from anything rubbing it. I know mounting it inside doesn’t look so expeditioniny, but it doesn’t get stolen so often.

I went to mount my winch today and found out that it won't work with my new bumper. I haven't talked to Lucky 8 yet, but I don't really expect them to take it back since I had to grind part of it down to clear the transmission cooler line. Terra Firma does make the bumper I need for my winch, so I guess I'll be selling this one and buying the one I need.
