When I fit my sliders I used a 2x4 and a jack to hold them up while I bolted them

So I cleatec off the Baja Rack in preparation for moving it over to the new owners truck on Saturday. So off with the Jerry cans, awning, tire and cb.



Then I moved on to pulling both my front tires and strut assemblies to swap to Old Man Emu HD coils.



So while they were off the truck, a coat of primer and paint went on..





Then the struts came off and I got the springs swapped only on the front though unfortunately.



New coils look to be 2.5mm thicker.



Nothing sketchy to see here....

Default That looks nice

ArmyRover that looks really nice let us know how she rides with the new springs. I do love that front bumper I have asked before but canít remember which one it is, is it Tactical Rover or Proud Rhino? Also where did you get your Grill from.

Proud Rhino on the bumper it is awesome.

the grill was a Christmas present from my dad but he said he found it on ebay. Good eye most folks miss that it's not stock.

Default Put the old fridge in the new rover

So after rethinking my use and not seeing a need to use the fridge AND one of the third row seats, I decided to put a piece of plywood down on the cargo area and bolt the fridge slider on to it using wood nuts and see how easy it would be to reconfigure for different needs. I had a shipping accident with the recessed "D" ring deck tie downs so I guess that will be a project for next week. But for now

I started with a 4x8 sheet of white Oak Plywood and cut it into a 4x4 piece. Good this the rover had a full length Frontrunner roof rack, other than reaching up, bringing home a 4x8 sheet of plywood was an easy tack.

So, I laid out the Land Rover Cargo area rubber mat and despite my lack of artistic ability, I managed to trace the outline of the mat

Once the basic outline is cut and sanded, I counter sunk the opening for the Land Rover tie down rings

Close up of my poor craftsman's skills., But in the end, the did fit and bolt up in place

Here it is in place held down by the Original tie downs (I used 4 M8x1.25 x6 0mm bolts in place of the hex head one on there originally)

Here it is configured for normal use, rubber mat and all. Look almost like it was before OI started.

Fridge slide installed with M8 x 1.25 x 30mm bolts into wood nuts on the bottom side of the board.

Fridge intalled!

Fridge deployed ready to give up all of that goodness that was bottles up inside

Nicely done!

I considered doing something similar but I have the under floor storage since I don’t have the 3rd row that I would hate to loose.
