I will post a few more pics shortly.

Very nice. I think I will get on that job this spring. I have some Coniston Green TouchUpDirect waterborne paint and clear coat that I purchased on Amazon. Surprisingly good paint that goes on like powder and dries real even. I used it for all my replacement hinges. After clear and water sanding it looks quite good for a DYI. I have a ton of it left so I think I will try replacing and painting the floor panels myself with that.

why does your switch protrude like that ? Typically the face of the ignition key way is just proud of the plastic surrounds.

Had front and rear diff oil changed. Wanted to do transfer case but the shop didn't have a tool that would fit between the emergency brake drum and the fill plug, oh well guess I'll try somewhere else.

Easily done with a 1/2 to 3/8 reducer and a 1/2 open ended wrench...

At least they didn't drain it and then tell you they can't get the filler plug off.

I was thinking the same thing. Nice work though.

My wife has been driving the 90 so I really wanted to add heated seats for her (and me) and finally got around to installing new foam, seat covers, and heated seats. They worked great. I really don't know what the big deal is about doing the seats--I had no difficulty at all and they look perfect. I did do a few things to the frames--I noticed one crack that got welded on one of the seat pans and then I welded all 4 tabs that hold the seat runners to the truck--these 4 tabs are all pressed in and rather loose so the passenger seat always rattled/wiggled just a little when no one sat in it. Now that those are welded, it is quiet which is great as I HATE rattles... Heated seats went in no problem and work great. Bought them off Amazon with the round hi/low switch (Kupai 2-Seats Carbon Fiber high/low round switch, $48 shipped). In regards to the seat backs where there is a horizontal tab that goes through the heated seats, I did modify the tab. The tab is wider than the vertical electrical elements of the heated seats (which you can't cut) so I trimmed the inside of the tab (where it intersects the cover) so that it fit between the two heated elements in the cover. It seemed an obvious solution but difficult to describe, so if someone gets stuck, just drop me a pm and I'll sketch it up. Installed the switch next to the stereo in the cubby. I went with the Exmoor foam and covers in the Denim fabric. I really wanted to do something nicer at first, but my wife reminded me how I use the truck, with the dogs, in the mountains, at the lake...sand, hair, abuse. They turned out great--super happy.

How do your heated seats work, do they heat up fairly quickly and warm? From where are you getting power for the heated seats? I have the RN heated seats which are Waeco brand and they seem somewhat intermittent, not sure if its the heaters or the way I have them wired.

I have the exmoor heated seats and they are nowhere close to the Oem seats I have had in various vehicles... Take way longer to heat up...

New(to me) tent

Not so much to the defender as for it. Picked up my new RTT. Not on top yet, have it airing out in the garage before I close it up. Getting ready for the first big road trip through Arizona and Utah Don't know why the photo posted upside down. Damn iPad

That is basically them--my actual listing isn't on anymore, but those look to be them. Work great, nice and warm, couple minutes to heat up (similar to my old Disco2). I have a Painless Wiring box in my battery box that I have it wired to...
