Hi all , I have visited the page a few times while doing my defender build , I purchased a 2021 Defender Max Limited back in December 2020. I found some extra parts pretty well everywhere i looked when i got it home ( purchased out of territory and picked up at the border due to covid), it was a bit disappointing to say the least, the most alarming was the 6” bolt i could see through a hole in the skid plate under the engine. Other than that It’s been pretty good so far. I have put 1350 KM on it all on tracks. One of the header pipes cracked at the weld inside the cat around 800 KM (dealer gave me a new one) i TIG welded the seam on the new one before I installed, as they come welded from the inside from factory. Blew a belt at 1250KM. Installed a few BRP goodies along the way. First and foremost was the tracks , i decided to go with the Apache 360 LT , Most of the use has been brush cutting a trail to my family cabin about 100 km from town, there was an overgrown snowmobile trail and we widened it up to accommodate SXS. Here’s a few photos of the Rig. Looking for a shop manual for the 2021 defender as well as something a little more informative than the operator guide that comes with tracks if anyone has a line on that.

Cheers

Welcome to the forum... Sounds as if yer getting yer feet wet already. I'm not so sure I wouldn't be taking off those skids and finding out where that bolt goes/went??? Wouldn't think that would have been just left behind... Especially if I were riding in such extreme conditions... Beautiful photos

I had a long hard look around everywhere and could not find anything. Also by looking at the threads and shank of the bolt there isn’t even a scuff out of the cadmium playing which led me to believe it got left behind... i’ve dropped a few things down there before and it’s a PITA to find , ended up removing the fuel tank to find the piece i dropped..
