lots of finishing touches... infrared imaging, satellite uplink/downlink, aprs beacon, global/hf comm, some basic countermeasures (smoke screen, oil spray - oh wait, that's factory standard), oh and a backup battery. just some thoughts...

Now you're speaking my language. I'm a dedicated "prepper". Can you put armor on these things?

Thank you. I'll have to start reading the "events section".

how about some rear work lights to start? they work as great reverse high-beams too (check out the pic... I saw this in Mad magazine as a kid and of course I found it via google)

HA. Yeah, that would be fun especially since I'm the slowest driver in town. I gave up speeding long ago. If you can't beat them........

Hi Guys

This truck needs AC. I'd like for Michael to install it before the truck ships to me. He will install a system from LR. Is this what I should do or is there a better/more serviceable system available in the US?

Yup. There are generic ones out there but it won't look oem and I can't attest to its effectiveness. Other thoughts?

I just want it to work well and be fixable in the US. Is that the case with the LR system?

I assume Michael is going to drop something in like an NAS AC right? If so parts won't be an issue.

Just go to Atlantic British, Rovers North, etc. and check out the extensive AC parts inventories.

I've actually never had any problems with ac in the two Rovers I've had (knock on wood).

X2!

Also, way to work it in as American as possible by sticking with LHD! I think RHD anything should be banned!--but , this comes from a southpaw....
