    Two or Four post lift

    For that kind of work @reb78 I would look at getting a jacking beam/pit jack, or probably cheaper - a pair of tall axle stands. I have always found a stand or two to be very useful positioned beneath a vehicle and then ramp lowered accordingly

    Series 1 4x2

    I think team idris’ series 1 is 4x2, and I think he mentioned someone else’s he knew who also had a 4x2. Perhaps it would be worth messaging him for some info?

    New Template for LR to use Re: Defender

    Lots of electronics doesn’t have to mean it’s unreliable or hard to fix, but with JLR it invariably does. Toyota Land Cruisers in their various guides also feature a lot of electronics, but they just don’t go wrong. My client has circa 570 Land cruisers and 30 D4’s. At present 7 D4’s are VOR, 2 Land cruisers are VOR (both were involved in RTAs) The JLR reliability is atrocious, that alone would put me off a purchase

    Td5 conversion

    Have a search on the 4x4 winch challenges Facebook group, quite a few folks have fitted td5’s with the disco loom stripped back to the bare essentials
  5. I’m not sure how unique that chassis really is; Protection and Performance used to market that product
  6. 60mm track width makes no difference on an offroader, I have run this for years. If anything it’s an improvement, I found It makes it easier to climb out of ruts
  7. Why not just leave the rear axle standard track width? I can’t see what you’d gain by widening it Lots of standard vehicles run a different track width between front and rear axles. Land Cruiser springs to mind. I ran spacers on the front only for years, as does a mate, you couldn’t even tell by looking

    Mog 404 axles

    Good work, I’m looking forward to seeing how this comes out. Hardox might not be the best choice of material for brake discs; OEM discs are extremely soft and easy to machine, hardox would probably give you some unexpected braking characteristics

    Fixings straps

    Or you could use anti-luce fasteners

    Oh, and as promised, the front runner offering:

    6mm will be massive overkill. Got any 2mm?

    Fixings straps

    I work in the trade so it came direct from sortimo for a build years ago That Sortimo stuff is fairly strong, but I couldn’t say whether it would manage 20kg (full Jerry can) For the price of the bought Jerry can holders available it’s probably not worth making your own anyway. I just ordered the Front Runner twin Jerry can holder for a project at work, we couldn’t make something for how little these cost. When it arrives I’ll post up some images

    Fixings straps

    If you like rubber then this strap from sortimo is really nice gear. I’ve used it for loads of things, just mount with a p-clip for the fixed end and use the supplied hook for the free end. It’s stretchy so it fits anything you want and you cut it with a sharp blade if required. They do the strap in big rolls and the hooks in bags of 50 or so https://www.sortimo.co.uk/shop/en_UK/Load-Securing/Accessories-Load-Securing/Other-accessories-load-securing/Bungee-strap-set-2-m-/p/000000000080778925
