    Bringing An Overlander Back Home

    Replying to my own post after reading your other post that included the engine stamp and that it was a 258. Since that is a true replacement engine, same size, same year-ish, I think you're fine. I would check Box 1 on the DOT form (unmodified) and the Code E on the EPA form. Is Schumacher...

    Bringing An Overlander Back Home

    This is an interesting twist. I believe we traded comments on FB about Schumacher. I have read of the government impounding cars for this and similar reasons (and that means crushing them). Mostly the discussion was on Defenders that had replacement engines. There might have been less than...

    Bringing An(other) Overlander Back Home II

    Quick update. The Overlander has now visited multiple ports in Japan and Korea (as the transport takes on more cars) and now is heading to Singapore. Hopefully, it starts heading to the Americas after that.

    Disappointing. Would be great to find an alternative source. Please post if you do.

    Those flares are one of the first things coming off so they're yours. Remind me in a few months because I will likely forget by then.

    Not sure, it looks like that was the remnants of the radio wiring. That was a pre-Andrew picture, and it looks like he either cleaned that up or tucked it away!

    Bringing An(other) Overlander Back Home II

    Andrew had the original rims on roller tires, but they wouldn't hold air. Plus, we couldn't put them in the back for RORO shipping. He mounted the 33" tires that were on it on the original rims. The tires will work fine for shipping. Once it gets here, I will decide on new tires or not...

    Andrew dropped the Overlander at the Port of Brisbane today. Should be about 3 months to stateside then Dallas. He also swapped on the original white wagon wheels for the trip. Here are the pics from drop off.

    My wife would beg to differ with you. Actually, she won't beg, there would be swearing.

    Yeah, still in Australia. The trip takes 2-3 months once dropped at the port. The last Overlander had a 3-week layover in Japan, and it definitely took the full 3 months

    Bringing An(other) Overlander Back Home II

    I couldn't help myself and bought another Overlander this past month. Forum member Andrew Burrows (same member who sold me Blue) bought this one in the Spring and decided to part ways with it. We reached a deal, and it is officially bought and paid for. Andrew is being super helpful and...

    I used naval jelly in the 1980's on my first Jeep as a teenager. I used it yesterday to take rust spots off a tilt lever! I use it with steel wool to take off rust spots on all my chrome parts: wagon wheels, bumpers/bumperettes, tilt/turn/shift levers, etc. Still works great.
