Short answer is no there isnt. There should be a long length of strap with a snap button or two that connects with a snap on the tube above your heads though and that will pull the tonneau up and streched so that any rain should flow to the back and not into the truck itself.

Is there a bar that goes behind the seats for the tonneau to snap into? I haven't taken a close look at a half-cab setup, but it looks like it's setup for one.

Wow, is that a 35" tire with a brake light bar? Pretty cool looking great man...

It's a great fit! I finally put it on the other day. I looked at it in the basement and decided what a damn shame it was to not be on the truck. Now I just need to figure out a light.

Installed the NAS steering wheel that I bought like 3 years ago. It had some loose foam so I didn't install it. Finally got around to fixing it using syringes and super glue. I dropped some glue on the front of the wheel, causing deformation if the foam. Ground down the bad spot with a small dremel stone, then buffed out the area. You can't really see it now unless you're looking for it.

Not so much what I did "to" it, but "for" it today...picked up a 1.211 tcase at the "Pick N Pull" from a low-mileage. very clean 1999 D2 (complete with difflock/etc) after breaking the tcase in the 90 the other weekend. We now have a new donor!

Any chance you are willing to part with the tail housing off the broken on? I need one to complete a 1.2 that I have

I actually need to swap the entire tail housing from my old case onto the new one in order to keep my speedo gear & input (since D2s do speedo through ABS the setup on the case is completely different). The goal is to rebuild my other case into a 1.003 at some point anyhow.

Briefly threatened it with a bearded axe, then thought better and temporarily fixed the fragged caliper so I could get an old pad in there so I can move it around before sending it off to have everything from the master cylinder down replaced. I'd love to do it myself but I just don't have the time.

I was trying to decide what the perfect hood ornament for a diesel land rover would be, and I settled on the flying pig.
