Damn, brother that looks sweet! Fo, sho....

Wired up my top lights and the lights on my bumper. Also, I installed my new TruckLite LED lights.

I know this is going to cause several of you a lot of emotional pain...

But I rolled my Defender this morning, after swerving to avoid a motorcycle that cut me off on my way to my farm

Wow. Better than than the alternative. I hope you were in the truck by yourself as at least the driver compartment looks survivable. Is everyone OK?

Seeing photos like this reminds me of why I added a roll cage.

Glad you are OK. That is the most important.

It looks fixable, is it for sale?

I was by myself, thank God, and the truck is in the shop getting an estimate as we speak. Yes on the roll cage! I had been saving for the full external SD roll cage

I see a motorcycle across the street - did he stop to see if you were OK? Glad you seem alright!

I'm all right, thanks. He was riding on the right side of the lane, and when he got to the intersection, decides to make a left turn, as I was about to pass him. Fortunately I was able to drive around him, but sadly my baby wasn't as lucky

I'm glad you're alright! You saved a life! Your defender saved yours. Amazingly, even without a full cage. I hope you can save your truck in return. Best wishes. You are a stud!

I don't even want to f'ing talk about it. This is what I did with my rover last night. This was the one weekend it was supposed to work so that I could have it in my wedding photos and it died about .5 miles after I left my garage. Wasn't meant to be I guess. Had to AAA it 4 blocks. 4 blocks!!
