    RRC SS exhaust ?

    Well, my rear resonator probably has rusted baffles as it's starting to sound like jiffy-pop. So I'm ordering the NRP cat-back.

    ISO: D1 Parcel Shelf in Beige

    I have never seen a parcel shelf for a NAS 1994+ D1, only the roll-up cover. What years/countries had them?

    Converting to Stock Suspension

    If you're going back to stock, I'd do new rear airbags. It's a much more versatile system and not that hard to maintain, especially with new bags (and compressor).

    DIY Power Seat Controller

    The RRC is an entirely different animal, due to the window/mirror ECU. I don't think any other LR's got that piece of engineering.

    I didn't read the article, but scrolling through I figured his photo below probably sums up his RRC expectations. Every time I jump in my RRC I am immediately reminded just how nice it is, and I long for another road trip.

    New Bronco

    I don’t know. I agree an auto box is easy to drive, and that even in auto there are different flavors both good and bad. But there is nothing more satisfying than driving my IIA 109’s crashbox both on- and off-road. Then again, I put 250k miles on my ‘03 5spd Jetta Tdi Wagon, before handing it...

    novice fly fishing advice

    Every chance to fish is a chance to practice, catch or not. I like this type of practice much better than on grass. Starting out don't get too caught-up in rod weight as you'll be too sloppy for those finicky fish anyway.

    That is likely the time-off pattern for quite a while. I now need to decide which vehicle I set-up for dedicated longterm camping - the 109 or RRC...

    What are you bingeing?

    Norsemen was brilliant! We want to start Killing Eve, but I'm trying to be in the garage evenings, rather than in front of a screen. Sometimes I feel like...

    Transmission Removal

    I pulled my t-case/ZF as one unit, 96 D1. I used a borrowed motorcycle jack and needed about 2-feet of sill clearance to slide them out (accomplished with 4x6 wood cribbing). I pulled the cooling fan, put a few layers of cardboard between the engine and radiator (just to be safe), and had wood...

    Jerry cans in 2020

    AB Stock Valpro cans. Sold single through 4-pack they come out to ~$43/can, but they often run them on sale down to <$40. I have 2 Wavian in regular use for 20 years, and 2 Valpro in use for 8, no problems with either.

    Hella install on roof rack

    Since the roof rails are removed, can you install a connector/strain-relief at 1-2 of these pre-existing holes? Then you can easily disconnect when you remove the rack.

    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...
