Yup. All he needs now is a Defender to put it on.

I went to top up my transfer box and was surprised to find it full. I figured I may as well put air in the tires while I had it in the shop. The left rear had 15 psi in it. I was tempted to just add air, but I ended up putting a plug in it since I don't have a jack.

Added some Masai tree sliders, and in the process found some nasty rot on the outrigger/trailing arm brackets. (Previous owner slapped some sort of aluminum tape/epoxy on the area and waxoyled over it )

Removed the 37" tires on 15" steel wheels. Replaced them with 35X12.5R20 Trail Grapplers on 20" Kahns.

Road driving is about 100 times better.

Cut out the rusty center of my third brake light and welded in a new piece. I ditched the crappy, unreliable oem light in in the process and went with an led light. I like the minimalist look.

Prepping my replacement 200
Pulled the harmonic balancer and the internal key seat was blown apart and turned to dust.

Looks great - and it won't hold water and rust like the stock setup.
