I spent the day reinstalling the jumpseats in my 2020 Defender with a phillips head and a 10mm box wrench...

Or (hopefully) old Defender members for that matter, since they mostly use PoziDriv, not Phillips head screws, and most of the jump seat mounting hardware is 1/4" UNF. :)

Just did it today with my trusty 10mm box wrench and a regular old phillips head. No need for any of those fancy named English tools! To be fair, the phillips was used to reinstall the rear speaker pods in my SW. I think you get my point....

Not using the fancy named English screwdriver is what gets the screw heads chewed up when the Phillips screwdriver cams out, which the Pozidriv is designed not to do. In the parts catalogue, the back-support-brackets-to-sidewall hardware is M6, but everything else is 1/4"-28, and that's what they are on mine. :)

But I get your point; you're throwing some not-so-passive/aggressive shade on future New Defender owners, because they're just going to use them as mall queens and would never think about getting their fingernails dirty by wrenching on them. I've noticed similar sentiments on other makes' forum when a new model comes out, so it seems to be a thing that owners of older models do..

Barry, we all know what a "PoziDriv" is. New Defender owners will not. I'm glad you get the point. Just having some fun with the new forum...
