Thanks! I have actually registered and am now driving it. Last thing to be resolved is getting the cruise control parts to finish hooking that up.

Thanks, I searched high and low and found an NOS Mantec in the box. Painted it AA Yellow to match the truck

What elbow are you using on the filter canister?

and is that the hella battery disconnect I see off to the side?

The elbow immediately behind the air filter is disco 200Tdi, I needed it to clear the brake master, all because I didn’t the 300Tdi air box and Mantec raised air intake combination. The air cleaner is a Defender 300Tdi.

The battery shut off is a Durite, they call it the “Great Value Battery Isolator”. It has a removable key. I am going to finish installing it when I mount my Husky 8 later this fall.

Are you going to try to keep the XD brushguard with the husky or do something else?

I don’t really know. For the Husky tray I have, I need to section the center out of the front bumper. I’d like to have some sort of brush bar, I just don’t know if they will all fit together

Theres a couple versions of the husky tray out there. At least some of the “official” ones had 1/8” spacers between the tray and bumper. I think that could be enough to work if you removed it

you can kind of see it behind the frame rail in the pic
