Hello cvanschreven,

I am close to going down the same road with my 1970 2A short wheel base. It currently has some flogged out Old Man Emu "Nitros" on the front and some no name brand ones on the back. I am going into ARB to see how much a new set of Old Man Emu's will cost.

I am working on getting the brakes going first - so it could be a while before I confirm what the replacement shocks are.

Mine is a civilian Land Rover though.

Kind Regards

No I haven't thought about the tank. Some members have repaired or strengthened the tank mount that is prone to cracks. I think mine has been done already in service. Have to check, that was a couple of years back. As for a tank bash plate or something... no idea. Have you fitted some protector?

Interesting post Dervish thank you!  :D

I was working on an Isuzu truck at work this week and noticed that the tow hitch has four indentations on the side of the mounting flange. On the tow-bar, four pieces of round bar have been welded on, to correspond with the indentations and therefore supply a rest for the hitch and of course, an aid to resist the shear-force.

It is certainly worth getting this right, because a trailer coming off, must be an absolute nightmare to experience!

Ross, I expect that the sliders might provide some protection of the sills, but what about the fuel tank on the driver side? Have you done any reinforcing there?
