The front recovery point is now exposed at all times... I really dig that, no more having to remember to remove the cover before going out in the woods!

Looks like a typical John Lee instal!!!!! Nicely done!

What does that front recovery point mount to? It lloks like it is welded onto the lower portion of the radiator support!?

The LR instructions provide for cutting the removable air dam, both narrowing it to fit between the winch tray arms and a rounded cutout for the front recovery point like so:



Then the plastic air dam is bolted to the vehicle.

Stainless fasteners in place of the coin operated BS... nice.

Aaron,

I think the CS is welded to the K member/frame rails.

Bruno.

i figure you guys already seen a silver LR3. so i didn't bother taking pics of the whole thing. LOL

eric, this LR3 is the shit. dump your defender and go to your nearest LR dealer. LOLOLOLOL

Busted a u joint in Ohio on a road trip. Take off Rear shaft and lock Diff. Drive home in Nasty early Spring snow storm for hours to Chicago. Amazed at good gas mileage. Easy repair and road worthy again.

Let's test that with your LR3. If it does that, then well maybe...

I personally like the British chap that told you what to do, or what error you made, with the NAV system. The woman's voice was nice sounding but I certainly don't need a woman in the car with me telling what I'm doing wrong.

Damn, that stock winch tray does look good: It has motivated me to go sand down and repaint mine. I am doomed to forever have 'approach angle envy'.

Good decision you have made, young Padawan. Nearly ready for the Jedi trials you are.

With that decision out of the way finally, I am now down to a few minor tweaks left on the rig...can you say 'SD snorkel' (I am such a sucker for SD products)

Having witnessed firsthand the LR3 in action, I would like to say it is a very capable vehicle!

http://www.houstonlandroverclub.com/...urke_2_05.html

This is a skilled driver (Alan Dobbs, defender owner) walking up the trail.

The only drawback we saw this day was the need for sliders due to the elogated wheelbase. He did hit the black sill panel while traversing up the 3*** "Twister" trail. No visible damage, but probably some hairline cracks in the plastic somewhere.
