    Holiday bump. Price negotiable. Recently professionally detailed, and having fun driving on the weekends while it's still mine! Merry Christmas, all!

    1978 Toyota FJ40 Land Cruiser (Seattle, WA)

    Still for sale! My apologies to @Stl_commuter and others for the complete lack of response. Entered a beyond-crazy season at home & at work, and the FJ40 sale went on the backburner. If you're still in the market, please reach out and let's talk. Also, check out the awesome ExPo feature by...

    Mercedes Diesel Discovery 1 Build

    Didn’t realize you had a hood scoop for the intercooler. [emoji1303] Do you have a pyrometer hooked up? What EGTs are you running?

    Mercedes Diesel Discovery 1 Build

    Congrats on finishing the build! What a project! Would love to hear how that motor performs in the D1. Maybe I missed it, but what transmission are you using? Any way to move that intercooler up front to get some fresh, cool air? Maybe look at the 300Tdi intercooler/radiator setup as a starting...

    LR3 factory air tank for aux air.

    Real nice. Thinking about doing something similar on my D1. Can you provide dimensions of the tank?

    Any updates on your Disco products, Jason?

    2003 expedition built Land Rover discovery 2 (parts truck)

    Great deal for someone looking to build up their D2! I took the same approach when building up my D1. Good luck with the sell.

    Coyote; aka my 96 D1 5 speed build thread

    Great idea on the antenna tubes, Ray. I may have to copy that idea for my spare HAM antenna. :) I'm also pondering how to tackle some window guards a la Mantec, as well as a cargo barrier. I now have access to a CNC plasma cutter, so may go that route. I lack welding skills, though it's...

    Coyote; aka my 96 D1 5 speed build thread

    Great stuff, Ray! Jealous of all the time you've found to spend on Coyote! Though I know it's been a long time coming for you. It's cool to see such a functional, purpose-built truck, and it keeps on getting better. I like what you've done with your door panel. Mine has been a blank slate since...

    FJ40 Storage solutions? Post up your pics

    Very nice, Theo! Curious how the Teflon slides hold up over time. Seems like a great alternative. Any play in the drawers?

    GPS Asset Trackers

    Interesting. No details on the subscription cost, though. Curious how it compares in total cost to the SPOT equivalent.

    Blue Sea 7611 or 7622?

    Yes, thanks for the clarifying info, DiploStrat! I'm just going to point back to your post next time I see questions like this. Cheers.

    Blue Sea 7611 or 7622?

    The Blue Sea ACR will still operate as designed in terms of battery combining/isolating based on charge state, but your batteries won't be optimally charged. I experienced this on my FJ40 when I installed a starting batt and a much larger deep cycle batt. My understanding now is that batteries...

    1999 Disco I 300TDi: Fixes, Mods, & Trips

    I lost power steering on my Disco a couple blocks from home yesterday. Looks like my steering box blew a seal and dumped all the PS fluid. Oh joy. So, what’s a guy to do? My knowledgeable and trustworthy local Land Rover mechanic says a new Land Rover box is the only way to go. He swears by...

    1999 Disco I 300TDi: Fixes, Mods, & Trips

    Just before Christmas, I headed down to the heated garage at Defenders Northwest with the two 3rd members in hand, and 12 hours of wrenching later (I'm slow...), drove away with my TrueTracs and 4.12's installed front and rear! Photos or it never happened, right? Only snapped a couple rather...

    Blue Sea 7611 or 7622?

    Yes, that would work. Or go ahead and install a female connector and tape it closed to protect it.

    Blue Sea 7611 or 7622?

    Using the yellow switch on the ACR, you can leave the unit in Auto mode and let it use its built in logic (combines the batteries when they are being charged, and isolates batteries when there's no charging source, i.e., alternator, solar panels, shore power). Or flipping the switch the other...
