    60mm body lift
    6 degree corrected front & rear arms
    HD steering arms & adjustable panhard
    Rock sliders
    Straight through exhaust
    Boost pin etc
    Getting alloy radiators etc soon
    Got diff guards etc
    CB etc
    Switches gauges etc
    Front winch bumper
    Rear winch plate - just need to make a bumper to go with it.
    35" tyres on 10js
    Wide arches

    Thinking bigger turbo

    Thinking either roof rack or full external roll cage at some point.

    Can anyone else suggest something it could do with having as feel as though it's missing something.

    I've only a desire for the diff locks and lower gearing.

    I just want to finish the welding and get a catch can fitted, would like to fit a 1.4 Defender transferbox to get the gearing down on these bigger tyres but we'll see, not sure I'll ever be able to afford lockers with the little one now needing this that and the other on a weekly basis lol

    I really have got to replace the radiator or at least get it re-cored at some point.

    Wish list would be 4.37 HD R&Ps in pegged housings with twin Ashcroft air lockers and HD shafts, need a spare £5k for that little lot though lol

    One things for sure, the 4x4 accessory shop will never go broke while there's guys like you fellas around.
    I've got a cousin who has every extra bit you can get on his 4by, never had it in the dirt, but it makes a good conversation piece at the pub, he's on first name terms with his accessories shop man, think they even send him a Christmas card each year.
    Do you guys doubt LandRover engineers to design a competent truck?
