    Dirk - I assume you have a tax problem with all the income off this site?
    Hence the branding et al.
    Looking very nice nevertheless.

    I have a wish-list longer than my two arms together for my Disco. Will have to do it bit by bit but I can't decide what items on my list are needs what are nice to have's.

    I have started and Landyworx fitted an extra battery for me inside the box in the engine bay and ran wiring to the back so I can run my fridge and they fitted a brad harrison plug to power a trailer.

    While my D3 was at Landyworx we checked the main battery as I have had to jump start it once or twice after leaving the door open for extended period. So the main battery was also replaced.

    Got my spare altenator from Anthony on standby.

    As always Landyworx work is fantastic !

    I need to prioritise my wish list but just some items :

    1) Kameel Dynamic Sparewheel Carrier;
    2) Kameel 125l Long Range Tank;
    3) Electronic suspension adjuster;
    4) LED globes;
    5) Bigger intercooler;
    6) Reverse Camera;
    7) Remap;
    Roof Rack
    9) Some spotlights;
    10) Arb integrated bumper;
    11) C-tek battery monitor;
    12) Some decent rubber - BFG or Coopers;
    13) Tyre Pressure Monitors;
    13) What have I forgotten ? BUY SWAMBO A D4

    I need to organise my list in terms of my needs, my finances and as always maintenance will play a role as well.

    But when all is said and done these Discos are amazing vehicles, I really love mine, they have real character !

    Looking forward to more of your mods.

    Cheers
    Chris

    Eventually got round to fitting the antenna, will have to get it crimped in the morning. (Shot Sarge for that perfect grommet tip, easier it could not have been!) Antenna fitted with the bracket recommended by Mr Benson.

    Radio face between the seats it fits perfectly in that little spot with the rubber piece out, only problem I cannot read the screen from the driver without bending over but for now it will do, when back from the river trip I need to reposition it to somewhere where I can clearly see the screen.

    I did not have time to run a power lead from the front so for now stuck a Hella plug on the radio and plugged it into the rear feeding off the second battery.

    Went to Fouriesburg and onto Afriski. Traveled in and out of Lesotho for the 3days. We where 4 adults and 2 kids and the trip was comfortable and no complaints. Kids loved sitting in the "boot"

    On the 5th July while skiing it started to snow.

    Eventually took pics of my drawers,also did a new insert for the back door and fitted a basic shelf
    Bottom drawers can take 4 ammo boxes if needed,top of the drawers with the cargo net is for either more ammo boxes or loose thingies.

    Now I can pack EVERYTHING and find 'it' easily,I've gotten fed up with boxes within boxes,then you still have to unpack to get stuff.

    Excuse the mud(1st pic)-the ARE M/T tyres got stuck on the weekend,pressure washed The Bobster for 2 hours and STILL filthy

    Looks really good Bob.
    Your 1st photo (the muddy one) is the best there.
    Do you have drawings of the drawer system? I think with some plans to work off and change I might be able to build that.
    What did the drawer system cost ?

    NO PICS

    Did you pack it all out, then looked at it with a cup of coffee in hand before installing it? (as per instructions). AND now we know why they stay up once installed. Thanks for sharing that.

    Hope you enjoy it. Space for more GAS

    Looks good uncle Bob. Where are you going to put that massive tent of yours now?
    Looks like you got some mud in the back on the drawers. Why is it shaped like bushmen?
