Okay, took out quite a bit of wire added over the years before coming to an impasse. I need to take out the factory AC duct and lower dash. Does anyone know how to do this correctly? Any help will be greatly appreciated. I am heading to read the old posts throughout the forum as well.

I brought new fuel injector lines but we're stuck looking for all the lines that goes from the fuel filter housing to the fuel pump. I've tried RovahFarm and River North but no luck so far. I was to to have them made for me but that would cost me $300.

Thank you. It achieved the three things I wanted out of it- tire carrier, receiver hitch, and some protection. I may make a few more since I have gotten some good feedback on it.

Today I rebuilt my rear passenger side caliper. I rebuilt the other side a couple weeks ago in an effort to find and stop an awful squealing that occured nearly every time I stopped. I had tried different brands of brake pads with no success eventually going back to the oem Ferodo which still did not stop the squealing. I tried two different kinds of anti-squeal adhesive on the backs of the pads, one by Permatex, and none of those worked. Needless to say, I am happy to have not yet heard a squeal in my driving around today.
The only majorly difficult part of rebuilding the rear calipers is fitting the final rubber wipers and metal retaining ring, especially if one does not have the 'recommended' Land Rover tool. The metal retaining ring is very easily bent and can be squashed in the process of trying to get it to snap into place, usually one side of the ring will pop out of place. I made up a tool out of a C-clamp and a throttle plate out of a Zenith Stromberg carburetor. It fit the face of the metal ring perfectly and with a few turns of the screw the whole thing snapped into the cylinder bore; I only wish I had thought of this when I rebuilt my other three calipers! Here are some pics of the rebuild and my home-made LRT.

Installed my dog/cargo guard. Fits very nice. Also also took all the measurement to remove my "middle back" seat and put a platform for the fridge. Took the headliner out to have it redone...and to get rid of the speakers hanging up there. Headed to a buddies shop to use his lift to tiddy up some nasty wiring on the underside, and just might put the new fuel tank in.

Rick did you go with a genuine cargo/dog guard or one of the aftermarket ones? Also would you mind posting a pic or two?

I worked on mine over the weekend on the way to and from the wilds. After that I let her run free and play

Clutch is now new, Transmission and T-Case are back in. New head unit and subwoofer installed. Tonight I finish it off by putting in the drive shafts, exhaust, and cross member. Hopefully it all works.

Yesterday I replaced following:

Water pump
Timing belt
Alternator and power steering belts
All radiator and coolant/heater hoses

All went well. The only "fun" part was getting the crank shaft damper bolt off. I used used a breaker bar and turned over the engine to loosen the nut. I was leery about doing it that way but it worked fine.

It took me 9 hours working on my own. I did the work slowly, marking all the parts and bolts as I took things apart and taking pictures as i disassembled each item. (fortunately I didn't need the pictures to reassemble).

When I was finished I had no left over parts, the truck started fine and no parts came flying out.

I wish those caliper piston seal retainers were easier to install. And stainless. At least they're cheap.
