    I’d love to hit the trails. PM me. So far my friend who’s the Shop Manager at Land Rover Seattle has been helping me with the bigger items. He’s moving though, so I’m also looking for someone. Craig Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Drawer storage kit

    My ARB/Engel fridge must be taller than the national luna. We’re using a step stool too, but the fridge opening enough to get the basket in/out is my bigger concern. Great drawer system. Sounds like it works well for you. Do the back seats fold down to the same height as those drawers to serve...

    Yeah, I saw that video too. Considering all that a vehicle can beed to handle rugged roads/trails a suspension issue is pretty minor and almost always replaced on every vehicle (Jeep, Toyota, Land Rover, ...) to do this sort of thing. So far I like it. Fox external reservoir shocks are known to...

    I’ve had 4 sets of BFGs MTs and do like them. The Cooper’s generally get better reviews than either the BFGs or Toyos though, and are a bit less. The Expedition Portal tire review had me leaning towards the regular Cooper Discovers but the basalt rocks are just too hard on the sidewalls up here...

    Drawer storage kit

    I doubt ARB does. Truck Vault may. They support A LOT of vehicles. I like that the Front Runner drawers are an exact fit for the G. They seem a bit tall though. Not sure my ARB fridge could open with those, and my girlfriend definitely couldn’t see inside it.

    Drawer storage kit

    ARB and Truck Vault also make nice drawers. I like the Truck Vaults a lot. Had one in my Land Rover Discovery 2 for a few years. It has a unique roller system instead of drawer slides. Great unit. I have not had one in my G. Craig

    Thanks for all the additional info. I’m going to take a closer look at those rings. They do look stouter than mist tie downs. That wolf recovery loop setup sounds interesting. PM me a few details when you have a chance?

    Thanks Matt. Very helpful! I thought they might be. Any other frame mounted recovery options that don’t require the bumper to be replaced (for now)?

    Are the attachment points on the front/back rated for recovery or are they transportation tie downs?

    Thanks Eric! Solid suggestion. Great minds must think alike. I have another pair of the load bars sitting here because I was thinking the same thing. If anyone wants the leftover one, let me know. Good to get confirmation that this was a good year to buy. I did quite a bit of research, but I’m...

    Thanks! I wanna see the tent on there too! Couple more days and it’ll be ready for adventure. Can’t wait! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Added Front Runner load bars for the RTT on it’s way. I like that they are only 17 lbs and close to the roofline. These rigs are tall enough already. I like to keep the weight up top as low and as light as possible... you never know when a sidehill will surprise you.

    Installed a G-Wagen Accessories locking spare tire storage kit.

    Added a removable rear cargo shelf that’s held in place by the four cargo area tie downs. ARB/Engel fridge/slide as well as the Power Tank bracket/Fire extinguisher are held in place with 1/4-20 T nuts and bolts. Pelican is strapped down to Mack Tie Downs. Front Runner Cub boxes fit...

    Added Viking Offroad Thor springs, Fox shocks, and Cooper Discoverer ST Max All Terrains 295/70-R18 Plenty of sidewall for airing down. Super smooth on-road performance. Kevlar sidewalls for in the basalt we have here in the PNW. Love em.
