Discovered what this switch does.... For a while it had done absolutely nothing until I realized then that it had been disconnected by the previous owner. It took me a long time to find the correct wire but I finally found it. I traced it and followed it back all the way to an elaborate contraption. I reconnected the dangling wires and promptly noticed that the landy had begun to make a strange humming noise. All of a sudden the wheels folded into the wheel arches and the defender started hovering. Then it burst through the opposite wall and opened its 3.5L afterburners and broke the sound barrier many, many, many times.... In all seriousness, turns out the switch did nothing. A plus was that it was an easy way to the battery, so I connected a new pair of hella 700FF driving lights.

Sorry for the multiple pictures. My phone completely spazzed

Ordered new Tom Woods DC Front Driveshaft, measured new pinion to pinion length at 27 3/4" - at rest! It will be good to have 4.5" of spline travel.

For the record, my stock front driveshaft measured:

25 7/8" minimum
27 3/4" maximum

With the pinion flange on the driveshaft angled to match my pinion angle, it was actually 27.5" or a quarter inch too short.

Put new bonnet on today. Kids at school wrapped it.
Looks so good I don't want to put the spare up there right away.
Put some dyna mat on there also.

Finished up installing the new floor in the tub and back row footwell floor. Next up seat belt floor hardware and the old bench goes back in to be covered in copious amounts of Cheerios and other crap my kids will dump.

Edit: yes I work upside down to make things interesting.

No console @ all. We used Nick M's adapter that allows the use of a Lokar shifter with the stock tunnel and floors. The lokar shifter comes up through the stock manual shift boot and looks like a manual shifter. The "auto consoles" have always looked cheap to me and they take up a considerable amount of the room in the front of the truck for no reason and make the trucks look very un-defender like to me.. Trey's truck was an Lt95 so we had to switch to the lt77 bulkhead adapter, tunnel and floors as the auto wouldn't fit under the lt95 setup.

Christocat and I are taking the 90 up to Machiasport, ME for the week! Hopefully we can stop by ECR (if they're open? ), and happy to meet up if anyone is around. On the road again....woooo! Let's hope we don't find ourselves prematurely on the side of the road again!

You've got a friend in Brunswick ME. You will pass through if you are taking the coastal route 1 through Rockland.

Welded up a riser for my center consol out of 2" "C" channel. One hole is for a dual USB outlet and the other is for a 12v plug. I'm wiring in a 6 station fuse panel and a mount for 6 relays onto the cross pieces. Photos to come of the wiring.

Nice riser-- if the plugs are up facing, consider a cover if you haven't already. I've had a dime short out a cigarette light that was up facing and debris piles/packs into USB plugs over time

All the electrical is Bluesea brand and yes, they come with covers. Thanks for the heads up, I could see a dime or a round of ammo falling in and shorting things out.
