    RRC SS exhaust ?

    Thanks for all the replies. I'll have to shop around. FWIW, this RRC still has the factory exhaust (orig. 60k mile RRC). Futher, I'm in NJ but the LWB doesn't see any salt use. So, either a SS cat-back would last forever, or I don't really need it. The thing that bothers me most is not seeing...

    RRC SS exhaust ?

    Looking at the welds on my 1995 LWB's exhaust, and the early onset of socially isolated driving season, I should probably replace it now. I have long thought about doing a full stainless system, but since it's a 14cux and runs fine, I'll leave the Cat's alone. Is this a wise choice? In a quick...

    Of everything you list, I'll take air suspension every single time!

    INEOS Grenadier

    Yeah, electronic overhead. By mistake I left our Honda electrics on for a long time (engine not running) and it wouldn't start. The battery was 11.64V, but this is apparently below the voltage the ECU shuts-down the option to start.

    Opening shot, next to a RRC, not one of his automotive clones. What's that tell us?

    ARB front light size

    On my D1 ARB I ran IPF rectangular lights, to get the largest reflector and 120W per light. My RRC ARB fits Hella 4000’s fine.

    Drive the Tdi while you tweak the V8 to your budget. Nothing beats a nice V8.

    No, but a HF is opening locally, so I will go in and check them out. Not sure what I would actually need to buy though...

    2020 Defender

    I completely understand. I have a Series 109 for off-road, but the RRC has much longer legs in the highway department, and obviously more comfort. I just have not been willing to subject my RRC's original paint to pinstriping and trail rash. However, if I were to get a new defender, it woud...

    Disco rear Ladder install hardware - what is it?

    Just use steel rivnuts. It doesn't really matter. I drove my D1 for 16 years, with a genuine ladder with steel rivnuts, and when I adjusted the rear door latch before selling it there wasn't any corrosion. And this was in NJ. If your really going to freak out about it, spray some fluid film in...

    2.5NA Diesel oil filter housing fittings

    I want to do a similar conversion on my 109's 2.25p. I have the filter housing with blanked ports, so I need the associated parts to thermostatically feed the oil cooler. Some where I think I have all this printed info but I'm away until Sunday... Unless you're talking about the radiator...
