my 97 Defender rollover rebuild

I figured i should start a new thread in stead of taintingthe tend of my truggy build so heres my 97 defender
90 that a buddy of mine ENDOED off a Wash and trashed it pretty good..

So far i have put on a new euro tub, new front wings, new skins. I have the full NAS cage and a softop. It has the nice cold A/C.

so far I have New 35 inch Kevlar MTRS, OME springs, fox rear shocks, bucks CNC vents, and soon the new Rovertracks front CVs and rovertracks yota Rear! its just a mild Daily driver cruiser that can beat up the trail if I feel like leaving the truggy at home, or if break it...

Very nice Lane. The sad thing is that you got that together faster than I will probably get the one in my driveway put back together and I'm being paid to do it!

But, I'm fixing rust damage. I'm not sure if crash damage wouldn't be easier, certainly more fun.

Keep up the good work!

Looks like a good start!
And finally you have a D90 now, it was time

Final colour?Any plan?
I'd go with a dark grey if not black, but under the sun of Utah I guess it could be uncomfortable...

Hey!
My gears?

If you wanted a Defender, you'd have one.

Nice build, I love the pace it's going.
