Looks great!

I'm about to go and replace the front wheel bearings on my LR3.

Mmmm, nice. Very pretty. Now get rid of the pricey alloys and get your nose in the ARB catalogue, skid plates, air lockers and a snorkel kit to be getting on with. A couple of sand mats, 4x20lt jerry cans and 2 high lift jacks for the rack should see you set for the bush; and give her some dents!

I finally snagged an Eriba Puck travel trailer after a few years of searching - perfect match for the Defender (especially after I paint it Conniston Green below the belt line).

This past weekend I picked up an older safety device roof rack from a local on craigslist. I still need to wire up the rack lights. I have some other goodies to throw on.

Thinking of getting a tactical 4x4 rear bumper very soon.

Planning a trip to either big bend or baja this year.

Here she is:

Are those front tow rings stock or aftermarket ?

What's up with the security cage around the A/C ?

Thanks for the compliments.

The tow rings are aftermarket. I don't know where the previous owner bought them. I can provide the information on the front of them if you want.

You've never been to Houston?

HA Ha... My neighborhood used to be a little rougher, so the cage was to keep your fellow citizens from either stealing the A/C itself or breaking into your house. I don't worry so much now, the hood is in high gentrification (SP?) mode.

Here's a few shots of our new to us 1973 ExMOD Series III 109. I just got the new Roamerdrive SS installed on Sunday so hopefully there will be some highway miles in the not to distant future.

That'd be a 59 Camino. Here's a pic of her outside the garage at the Blue Ribbon Beer run last summer.
