Installed a DA2274 swing-a-way tire carrier that I got from Geared Restorations.

I don't get why people cover their license plates for forum photos. You drive anywhere and hundreds of people can see it, but you'll hide it from 40 guys on a forum.

I drive with it covered too. Saves me from the photo radar vans that the city of Scottsdale loves so much.

If you scared, get on eBay and buy yourself another tag? I almost never run actual tags, and when I do they are on the wrong vehicle. In NC when it hits 30 years old, you can run a year of manufacture tag. That is, ANY tag you want, as long as it says the year on it your vehicle was manufactured. The legit tag must be kept in the vehicle somewhere, not necessarily in plain sight- I once had a '68 VW with a hole in the floor. The tag riveted over it nicely, under the remaining scrap of carpet, and I ran a combination of rusty 1968 tags from across the US to piss off the HOA nazis. And the fuzz down here is none the wiser on how old a Defender might actually be when they come across one. In fact, they usually just want to talk about their Hummer H2 or how they once saw a Defender on deployment in Iraq.

I see no point in having myself needlessly monitored, tracked, checked, or worst of all, forced to pay a fucking TOLL while enjoying the freedoms we have here to roam the roads. But covering up a tag that takes 5 seconds to remove I don't understand. I just got back from the bank on a truck with what an anal retentive government enforcement agent would call a "fictitious" tag, and if I got a citation for it, I would just pay it, after all it would be much cheaper than actually putting a "legit" tag on it. And by the time I have to appear in court, the truck will be in 1000 pieces anyhow.

I don't personally worry about people seeing my tag, but there is a difference between it being seen on the street and posting a picture here. The picture posted on the internet is effectively forever, where as a "sighting" in person isn't. yes I know someone else can take a picture and post it to the internet effortlessly, but that's another issue.

Where I live you had better have your vehicle properly registered, with legit tags (front and rear), county stickers and insurance all paid up.

Or else what? You get a ticket telling you to comply?


I have in the past bought vanity plates (legit!) with the intent to run them on as many different vehicles as possible. Maybe I will go get NC: "HEYDHS" and upload pics of it on every ROW truck at URE this year...

Busy day of getting things done without actually doing anything. Got a call from rockware that my new custom upper rear shock mounts are shipping...installed the jounce bumpers on the 14" sb bilsteins that are going on...ordered Ashcroft hd flanges and hd rear half shafts from justin.... Decided to redo the electrical from my winch and light and put in an auxiliary fuse box and battery cutoff (prompted by my last trail outing where a stick made it's way into the engine compartment and shorted my winch cables out on the exhaust manifold - truck went totally dead and started smoking under the hood)

Just had a look at my LR.
He gave me high five.
So we drove the way down to the grocery and back without any pickles!

I just love him!

Here are a bunch of detailed photo's regarding the installation. It appears that all the nuts, bolts, washers, etc are stainless steel. The only "weak" part of the design that I find is where the locking piece bolts onto the rest of the carrier. I may wind up welding them together and repainting the swinging assembly.

I know this is stupid, but I actually got to drive it today. It's been a long time. Loved it. Took the top off and drove it for a couple of hours.

Yesterday, I got the newly powdercoated tire carrier back from the shop. My dad and I pressed in the new Delrin bushings which he had filed down on a drillpress. We used some grease to help in pressing the new bushings in with a C-clamp. Installed the tire rack and pieces back on the truck. I had previously cleaned up and primed the original hinge bolts and heads which I reused. Now the tire rack no longer rattles and it looks good too, especially without gobs of grease around the hinges.
