Thanks. It's just dragging on though. I'll figure out why I can't post video and show you how the gear ratios where different front to rear. So my plan was to run a couple doffs I had. But I got looking at those and was able to build one good one for the front. I got this one to about .0035" backlash. That's on the tight side of spec.

will the bumper be for sale?? Nice truck, I have a rust free white also!
Maybe we could convince somebody to do a run of bumpers if we had a group of buyers. I know these stupid ass safarigard bumpers are really desirable and all. I just can't fucking figure out why. They are way way too heavy. The rear one bolts to both the body and the frame. That's just so wrong I can't get passed it. I like a light truck. The OME springs I like to run are the ones that EE does not recommend because they are too soft. But if you have a truck light enough to end up lifted 2 to 3 inches with these springs then the ride ends up exactly how i like it.

I'm guessing you aren't on the Facebook page "land rover owners north america" ?
there's a huge deal going on, couple of guys fighting over the trademark - and one of them is producing bumpers now
