    Question to the fellow disco owners out there - would it be idiotic to mount the hi-lift on the hood with the 4xrac attachments as I’ve seen on some Range Rover classics? I’ve currently got it in the floorboard of the second row seats, but with kids looking for a place outside that isn’t the...

    thank you - and thank you again for the help with the front output housing. CDL has made a world of difference.

    Thank you! I took out the jump seat on the left and kept the one on the right. Hidden from these photos are the two car seats in the back seat. The right jump seat is our CYA if a grandparent comes in town! Look forward to dropping it as the kids grow...

    Got around to building out rear storage. Like the dropdown table, used a sheet of 6061 aluminum sheet covered in bedliner, than built the frame using eztube tube and connectors. Starting to swear by this stuff. Designed with a slight offset to fit two front runner boxes underneath on the right...

    Does anyone have a recommendation for a rust preventing undercoat for the frame / underbody? Trying to decide between POR 15, 3M Rubberized Undercoat, Waxoyl, and Fluid Film. Thanks!

    Over-Prepared or Under Packed?

    I say all of this assuming you haven’t driven California a bunch - apologies if that’s flawed: Tahoe is beautiful and you shouldn’t miss it. But You cannot skip 395 and the eastern Sierras while in California. You’d be kicking yourself. At least get to the Alabama Hills and around the...

    Did the same over the weekend with the same part. Leak gone. Thanks.

    2001 Land Rover D2

    Would love to know how far down you put the new one. I just replaced the front output bearing on mine to eliminate vibration, put a new seal in with it, and now I have a leak (didn’t before). I ordered another seal and will be doing it over again this weekend. I pushed it all the way down to the...

    Got it out on trail and worked out some of the lactic acid. Next up: rear cargo storage build, cargo door drop-down stove setup. N.B. I also need to acquire or make a CDL shifter. Laying on the ground to lock the diff is getting old.

    Ended up replacing the bearing in the front output housing of the T-Case this weekend (a total bitch of a job with my hacked together tools), but the vibration is totally gone now. Thank you @Tinker !

    In my favorite experience with this truck so far, I found a driveshaft specialist that runs a shop out of his garage. Nights only. In San Francisco. That’s not normal around here. And it was awesome. Got my driveshaft dialed in and about 90% of my vibration is gone. I think at some point I’ll...

    Thank you. I’ll do the driveshaft second opinion when I get back in town and hope that’s the issue. If not, might be time to go through the painful process of taking that housing off. Will report back, ideally with some good news. Good luck with Nanuuq!

    No leakage from either. I changed the front diff fluid recently and haven’t had any leaks. I also put a 2004 front output housing on a few months back (to get the CDL) and drained and filled the transfer case as part of that. No leaks from that new seal. Haven’t had a chance to get the front...

    The vibration debugging continues! I sent the front drive shaft back to Tom Woods. Drove around without it for a week or so and had no vibrations. They say there was some play in the CV ball and some damage on the trunions of the joints in the CV. They changed our the CV socket flange, CV...

    Back to the fountain of knowledge: Given I have a 2” lift (that appears to be giving a generous 2”), is there any chance I’d need caster corrected radius arms to adjust the pinion angle to eliminate drive shaft vibration? Second, are the corrected radius arms recommended with a 2” lift in general?
