    LOL, I understand that.

    Saddleback Leather Large Classic in Tobacco

    My time as user, protector, and agent of this bag is almost at an end, time to pass it on to a new guardian. It has more scuffs and use now, than when I took these pics, but it's like patina on a Series Rover. Take a look at the newest versions of this bag on their web site. Dave Munson has been...

    This Start Problem....

    I’ll do the test again, but I think I did eliminate this error. In other words, I tested the output to the solenoid connected to the solenoid; disconnected from, but at the end of the wire; and at the relay output pin itself. But I’ll double check.

    Plastic Dash Repair - WWYD?

    That’s pretty awesome. Isn’t it time we figure out a way to get pieces like this 3D printed?

    Yeah. I’m not sure it is much of a point either. They already said it was based on the same platform, but with bigger ball joints and such. The thing that does concern me a bit is the plastic everywhere.

    https://gearpatrol.com/2019/09/11/the-cheapest-land-rover-defender-might-make-it-to-america/ Seems interesting. But I have to wonder if the Professor might have to scold Eberhardt when he hears what he says here. I'm still very skeptical of the ultra digital Defender. They may have vastly...

    This Start Problem....

    There are two relays behind the fuse panel that both click on when the key is turned to start. I believe one is fuel solenoid, the other is the start solenoid. Both seem to work, but I replaced them anyway—no change. EDIT: I thought up a new test for this. The relay has a constant 12.7 volts...

    This Start Problem....

    Yeah. I'm wondering if maybe it is getting just enough voltage to fire that solenoid in a rhythm. As in, instead of being solid on, it is actually coming on-off-on-off really fast so that it turns the starter, and keeps turning it, but not as quickly as if it were actually locked on. I'll...

    This Start Problem....

    Interesting..... I imagined that the solenoid would be engaged, or not, and that the starter motor was "separate" from that voltage.

    This Start Problem....

    I've got an unfounded phobia of simply leaving this demon somewhere in the truck and bypassing it with a new wire...... I'm going to pick up a new relay today to see if that might not be the issue -- even though the relay does seem to be working right, maybe it activates, but is deteriorated...

    I just showed the Richard Hammond video to my wife and she just instantly doesn’t like it. Called it a Kia. Started ranting about how bad the front end is. Looked up the UK press and comments about it and started laughing at how badly reviewed it is already. Declares she will not buy one. And...

    But when you are 1000 miles from home, 50 miles from the next gas station, and stuck.... warranty just doesn't make you feel that much better in that moment.

    So this video shows some details of the Newfender that I hadn't picked up on before. It at once gives me a little more hope, and makes me more afraid of the computer controls. It's not just that it is electronic, it is 100% electronic. Maybe the 85 ECUs are for redundancy? A couple of points...

    Just imagine though, if they had gone with a base model that skipped the touch screen, had actual switches and such, and a stripped down interior with nice cloth seats that could be removed easily -- bet that would drop the price enough to sell so many they couldn't keep up with demand.

    I was wondering if the center even was a real locker. They don’t actually say. And the title of the rear locker seems to suggest that it is most likely a semi locking diff with a specialized traction control system. Almost makes you wonder if it is a software based upgrade. As in, they all have...

    I think we should all build our own multiple times in the most utilitarian way possible. Let them know what the fans want.

    My brother who drives a mini van and a two door Saturn thing, who has never off roaded in his life, and who is in no way interested in buying a Land Rover, took a look at the video I sent him last night and made the observation that they had better have some way of manually selecting 4x4 and...
