    M416 spring lift question.

    M416 spring lift question.

    How much arch does the stock M416 spring have? I need to work up a lift for my M416 so it runs level behind my lifted and big tired Defender. Thinking about going with these Rancho's spinges that people posted in another thread. They provide a nice lift...

    FlashHole's M416 trailer Build

    2M Antenna Recommendations?

    How well would the Larsen type stand up to the abuse it will get from low hanging trees in the New England forests? Or is there a better choice.

    2M Antenna Recommendations?

    Interested in antenna and wiring suggestions for an old 74 Land Rover with a hard top. All aluminium so no ground plane afaik. The CB aerial is positioned at the rear of the truck using a firestick NGP set up.
