  1. The reason the front is not compressing above probably has more to do with running HD springs. Here’s a 90 on standard height factory springs running 255/85 16’s. With the right setup, there’s no problem getting enough upward travel front and rear...
  2. Not sure how many preorders JLR had for the New Defender, but it looks they’ll have go some to beat the bronco... https://techcrunch.com/2020/07/30/ford-bronco-reservations-surpass-150000/
  3. It won’t work as there is no ground connections 😉😉😉😉 In this scenario, would it make more sense to have winch off Batt 2? So therefore have no anticipated high drain conditions off the starter battery. Also, I assume you don’t ever want to connect the batteries (and alternators) in parallel for the winch?
  4. Hi My son is in Sennybridge for the next month, and wants to get his clutch replaced on his D2 whilst down there, so can anyone recommend a good LR independent garage in the Brecon area? cheers, Steve
  5. Sorry don’t know why I typed China, I meant India
  6. Whether it comes here probably depends on if Ford plans to sell it in India. If they do, then that will justify RHD version and so it may come here.
  7. I think they call it TSRV now Mo, Tough School Run Vehicle. 😉😉😉😉
  8. Ok just measured GL4x4 standard height turret with relocator and it’s 94mm, it would be about 100mm without the relocator. So, either way, you’ll have plenty of room for your shocks. so that’s these ones... https://gwynlewis4x4.co.uk/product/front-std-height-hd-turrets-including-re-locators-gl1056/ I suspect the +2 turrets would be the same. cheers Steve
  9. https://www.ford.com/suvs/bronco/2021/ New Bronco, with optional GOAT, and Sasquatch package that includes 35” muds, bead lock rims and front and rear lockers. Colours like Antimatter blue, Area 51 grey and starting at £24K in the US...
  10. I can measure the Gwynn Lewis ones tomorrow morning for you. What height suspension are you running as this will cant the diff over and make the shock off centre?
  11. Thanks for the reply, I just have the tools for brake lines, so I think I’ll go for best flexible hose, and yes I was planning to buy the SS clamp style rather than jubilee clips based on previous advice I’d seen so thanks for recommending them too. cheers 👍
  12. What’s best for fuel hose - suitable rubber hose, or braided? I see copper too as an option, but having never seen that used before, I’ve dismissed it. However I’m looking for guidance, so any recommendations? cheers, Steve
  13. I think the spec and looks are good, keen to see prices, this could be the killer if they have the same inflated egos of LR and Jeep (now in Europe) All the folks defending the spec & design of the new Defender, and all the bullpoo from LR that you can't meet modern safety and climate regs any other way, kind of have to eat humble pie now. I can’t wait to see the first back to back decent off road test between this and the new Defender.
