A any photos?

I got my replacement bumper that fits my winch and is for a Defender without the pushed out grill for a/c. Big thanks to Lucky 8 for hooking me up and super fast shipping. They shipped it out Tuesday and I had it Thursday. I also decided that since I had to pay to ship the bumper, I may as well get some rock sliders.


The new bumper sits much further back which is a big plus. I also found my old Rover Tracks fairlead. I need to get some longer power and ground cables for my winch before I mount it. It has an integrated solenoid, so I had to split the housing to access the power cable (Superwinch EPi 9.0).



Overall I'm happy with the rock sliders, especially for the price. They took about 30 min to install which was a nice surprise. The tree bars stick out a hair further than I would like, but that's good for the girlfriend.







Overall I'm impressed with the quality of the Terra Firma stuff, mainly because of the price. The fit and finish seems pretty good and it seems strong enough. Its definitely not something you would want on a rock crawler, but for my purposes, it should be perfect. If only Rovertym was still in Midlothian... My one complaint about the Terra Firma stuff is that the finish looks a bit odd with the NAS cage, but its not too bad.

interior redo-

Got most of the rear interior out including headliner, rear seats, all plastic trim, etc. Having new headliner installed and rear seat anchors and various other parts blasted and/or powder-coated. Will reinstall with stainless, etc.

Pulling rear headliner was a biaatch. Thought for sure I was going to crease it. Think I'm going to let shop reinstall. Any hints on removing interior rollbar so it won't be in the way for the shop?

Truck was amazingly clean. I'm starting to believe in the CA weather hype...

Since last Sunday I've been prepping for the Expo road trip. With Brian's help I replaced Swivel Pin Housing bearings and seals and this past week I changed engine oil, transfer case oil, diff oils and gearbox oil. I also discovered a little rock crawling damage on the rear diff drain plug. Luckily the diff itself seems fine.

I bought a UK spec rear step bumper from JRose609. It used to look like this;



Had a receiver hitch fabbed in. Note: Pin now goes through the housing and the receiver hitch, and the lower support bracket mounts had to be relocated.





Gave it some paint (will be blasted & powder coated at a later date)





Much better!

Mounted the ipad. After looking and reading for way too long, I took the cheap way out and grabbed to arkon from amazon for $23. It is nicer than I expected and I just ground and chamfered the fork mount and slid it in the seat rail under the factory seat bolt.

Arkon Seat Rail Floor Car Truck Mount with 18 inch Gooseneck for iPad Air iPad 2 Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 Galaxy Tab Pro 12.2 by Arkon http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00585CLSQ/..._eNIBtb1RENM9Z


I have had the arkon phone mount as a cheap temporary option for over a year now and have been really happy with it.

Mounted my winch yesterday. 12' of cable was the perfect amount for me. I routed it from the passenger side frame rail, over trans/under the air box, and to the battery box. Anyone have a source for the rubber boots that cover the three power cables on the winch?

Not sure if this is the right diameter for your cables, but it's a start: http://www.amazon.com/Taylor-Cable-2...HPPT20MBHVT5SZ

Those look like they are for the actual battery. The ones I need go on the winch. The originals were dry rotted and fell apart.

Finally replaced turn signal stalk to fix the shorted-out horn switch.
About time (been sans horn for nearly a year) and an due for an annual state inspection sticker.

FWIW, later model ROW column stalks and the mounting plates are slightly different. I'm talking very small differences here, but the way the turn/wiper stalks mount are slightly different and although can be easily modified, are not a direct match.

If you're ordering the part from a supplier it's worth noting. Also, if you're running a "bitsa" truck like many of use ROW guys are (parts spanning 20 years on our trucks) everything needs to be investigated before ordering stuff.

I grabbed a deal on an entire turn stalk/light switch assembly over a year ago on this board, so I didn't mind fighting with it a bit to get it to work, but if I had ordered a brand new part, It would be a different story.

Replaced the steering arm ball joint on my 84 RHD 110, and also noticed that my 4" lift is still using the stock pan hard rod. Next project is installing newly purchased RTE adjustable pan hard rod.

Did this too mine too (eh sorta) and it solved a ton of problems...really just connected and tested it, been wrestling with the steering wheel trying to get it off, did you use a steering wheel puller? The one I have didn't have the right bolts to thread into the steering wheel...
