I had the pleasure of seeing and driving this truck yesterday (no i did not call the seller, it was parked on the side of the road with the keys in it so i took it for a spin) and all I have to say is wow. the attention to detail is amazing. Other than it being auto it is my dream 90sw. It looks factory but it looks as if it was done obviously better than land rover ever could. The rivets added after paint and the fact that every component was done for the long haul is awesome. It drives really well and was surprisingly peppy and quiet. I did notice it had an nrp tailpipe. I assume the rest of the exhaust is custom. I would think the nrp v8 exhaust wouldn't work with the tdi.

The last owner added a few alisport components under the hood. All in all it looked awesome.

Correct.
The V8 muffler has too much restriction and it will cause the EGTs to get out of line when pushing the engine, so its basically a straight pipe with a resonator for looks.

Looked really good. The mud flaps are also nice. The mounting that held the rears on look cool.

Does Richards or marsland sell the nas chassis with 300 tdi mounts? It all fits perfectly.

Richards does.

That chassis is an old school Design-a-Chassis, but they no longer make it.

You got me Horsey. I can't hide it anymore. I am the new owner. It makes perfect sense I saved all my questions regarding the truck until after it was in my possession.

One other comment I want to make about this truck is about the ROX sliders. The fit and gaps on them are perfect and make them look factory. On too many sliders they stick out too far or have a huge gap under the door. These seem to line up perfectly. Screw making bumpers for mail order, you should figure out a way to make these available to people who don't send their trucks to ECR.

Winch Review, Please

Sweet. Good to know.

Barry, when you have time, can you also do some reviews on the new Warn Powerplant Dual Force HD and Warn Endurance 12.0? Thanks!

No problem. We can attach the hook to your nuts and I can see how quickly it rips your balls off when I press the remote button.

That would not look stock.

Not to pile on....but wtf do you know about rock sliders Barry ? I have no doubt the ECR product fit's well but when those designed by other co's protrude, thats to offer additional protection. I get a laugh when LA blvd boy comments on the functionality of a rockslider design....winches would be priceless.

Doug,

I am surprised you are not aware of the critical needs for armor when cruising Sunset Blvd, and the winch it is a must to intimidate the Bentley's owners parked on Rodeo Drive

Thanks.

We have to weld strengthening plates on the frame in order to make the frame tough enough for the slider, so mail order is out on those.

I don't understand why customers want sliders and side steps, but the customer is always right.

They stick out plenty. Customers wheel the hell out of them and they have never ginked a door or tub.

I should back up. I don't care about wheeling. I am talking purely from an aesthetics standpoint. When I had the 110, my sills were all dented from people getting in and out so a nicely designed set of sliders would have been awesome as they would have been one piece instead of the 2 or 3 piece design. They would look better over time and provide a place to stand while cruising the strip with Gustavo screaming at all the single ladies in what I can only assume is a mix of a persian/german accent. Not to mention they look like if you were in an accident from the side it would offer some protection.

It will fix one problem and create another.
The sliders stick out so your feet and legs always hit them getting in and out. The ones on my truck are polished to bare steel and all the paint is worn off in the high traffic foot areas. So you'd have no dents, but it will get scratched.

I would think in black it wouldn't be such a big problem to touch them up. I had a set of those fold up steps for five minutes and kept kicking them every time I got out. I really need some steps that pop out like on a lincoln navigator

Horsey has the best solution to this...a step stool.
