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.

The dynamat makes it actually sound like a car door when you close it as opposed to the thin metal sound you usually get. Didn't get to drive it really at all today but it did reduce the vibration of the sliding windows. I figure every bit helps.

Installed a great new top I bought from another forum member. It's a tickford with a custom belt rail added so it fits a 1995 ST. Pretty cool.

Installed a Bimini top I acquired from an EBay deal. It came with what he said was a carry bag for the top, which actually turned out to be a case for my bestop windows. All in all it was a good day for my Defender, but DAMN that last snap took forever!
