    Looking forward to seeing what you will be doing to the interior for storage etc. Sounds like you are heading down the same path with your driveline/suspension as the one I now have. You cannot go wrong with any of it.

    Your choice in driveline components is questionable...

    Scott, you might want to stop by Inland Rovers next time you are in SoCal. Gordon makes some nice rock sliders, SD style roof racks, and shock relocation brackets for a longer travel three link setup (I don't really understand this last one, but it sounds good).

    I agree, Inland Rovers is a great resource and Gordon does make some very nice parts.

    90% of all Land Rovers ever built are still on the road, the other 10% made it home...

    This is the kind of Disco I've ALWAYS wated to see. No bells and whistles to go bad on you. Only way it could be better is if it were a Diesel. Neat truck build man. Viva La no option trucks.

    Cheers

    Just an opinion, skip the OME shocks and go straight to the Bil 7100s. You'll thank me about 30,000 miles and mucho camping gear overloaded-ness later
