History Lots and lots of work put into bringing my truck closer to my dream, and then it was taken from me before I could even enjoy what had been done to it.
Exterior
1985 Land Rover 110 3 Door Hard Top Exterior
-TerraFirma rock sliders with tree bars, galvanized
-NAS LED lights (Headlights, turn signals, brake lights)

Future plan:
-Install CDeWan custom fabricated NAS-style rear step bumper that is currently collecting dust in my attic. (Beautiful piece, by the way. Thank you, Clay)
-Remove hard top in lieu of custom fabricated roll cage underneath the NTO ExMod soft top and hoop set that is currently setting in the load space of the truck, along with the drop-down tailgate I bought to replace the barn door when the soft top gets installed.
-TerraFirma Tubular winch bumper.
-Was going to have CDeWan fabricate a swing-away spare tire carrier that integrated with the NAS rear step bumper for when I converted to soft top, but that project has halted, obviously.
-Puma hood (not necessary, I just like the look)
-Conniston Green paint job.

Interior

-New Neoprene Corbeau Moab Seats
-Full interior and loadspace Line-X coated in light gray.
-Bulkhead removal kit

Future plan:
-Locking stereo center cubby and speakers mounted in the rear.
-A/C (if we had gone through with a small block swap)

Wheel and Tire
-285/75-16 General Grabber AT/2 on Black Modulars.

Future plan:
-255/85-16

Under the Hood

-Turbodiesel 4cyl
-R380
-LT230
-Work done by GB4x4 just prior to the seizure:
-New high performance intercooler and radiator
-New water pump
-New head gasket, decked heads and block
-Every hose and belt replaced with new parts
-New HD Clutch
-EGR delete

Future plan:
-If a turbo diesel is not in the cards in the future, I would have liked a GM small block. Something small and simple, like a carbed 305ci that I can easily get parts for and work on myself. There was a period when I was in Iraq and Aaron was working on my truck when he and I actually discussed a small block swap. At the time I was hoping to have a boat to tow to Lake Anna in the near future.

Suspension
Currently stock.

Future plan: OME 2"

Other

Four wheel disc brakes, 24-spline axles, heavy duty driveshafts.

Future plan:
-Any additional upgrades necessary to withstand the added power of a small block.
