    My D4 has all the skid plates in place underneath, obviously itíll still fit?

    Not sure of your plates but if they're like mine, should be fine. Tank sits outside chassis rail tucked up nicely:

    Had the D4 for 8 years next month, wow has that gone quick!

    For a guy off-roading a lot youíd think it would be fully decked out already What happened to your D3/D4 today?

    Anyway, bring it was leased I never really bothered as it did everything almost out of the box for 5 years, then a redundancy slowed progress whilst I considered itís future. Well itís future is as a keeper; so onto the build.

    Today was a ďpoint of no returnĒ type of project.

    Drilled out the upper holes for the Prospeed Light bar


    Then 5 of the toughest holes to drill out there! Snorkel bracket.


    Cut the trim panels to accomodate the bracket and the roof bar



    Then fitted that all back on.


    Now itís panel holes and cuts



    Itís now started raining so will take a break.
    Cheers

    Tombie, did you use Cobalt bits for those A-pillar holes? How many ? Any advice ?

    I have a snorkel fitment in my plans so you've prompted me to pull my finger out.. First though I'm going to modify an LR RAI so that I have the snout to fit the hose to the airbox - a bit of polyethylene welding which is going to test me! It will be a hybrid of the two.

    Hi David

    Destroyed 3 Cobalt bits.... in the end it was doing my head in so went with Impact Bits in an impact driver - destroyed 2 in short order but did the holes quicker.

    Use imperial 3/16Ē impact bits to punch the holes and tidy with the 5mm Cobalts.

    Just allow 5 impact bits!

    Why cobalt and not a standard drillbit?

    Hopefully thats the last of for a while. Ive spent $3k fixing stuff in the last 6 week's


    Mine recently cost $660 locally, OEM complete with pulley, so for once I suspect you haven't saved anything via an overseas purchase.

    Where from?

    Does it have Denso stamped on in? In looking for other parts i have seen a few aftermarket parts under the "LR" and "OEM" brands (though no alternators).
