so the water leak in the back of my truck was being caused by a warped rear door due to the factory ladder. so i figured it was time for a beefier ladder with better weight distribution. the Roverracks guys threw the new ladder on for me and fixed the leak with a little tweaking of the body work. the facilities are growing and i took some shots of their setup. The company looks like it has come a long way from the poor quality days of NWP racks. here are the pics of the shop including the new ladder vs the old.

Sorry to hear about the flood. I'm surprised baking soda didn't turn into pancakes back there! Made me wonder about my ladder etc.....realized it got rusty in that last few months..typical. Never thought of after market ladder they look nice. I got the leaky sunroofs to deal with....

I think in her case if she could even get her leg that high and she didn't tear off your rear bumper, you'd probably see ripped off hinges and torn sheet metal.

Help me get water out of my Land Rover

Those are words we don't like to hear at a dealership.

thank god the rear was in the back. but still when a customer says how to clean the water out of a land rover that only means hours of finding all the rotten wires causing the random issues in someones land rover.

I have seen some LR3s and discos with some fun issues from frt water leaks.

I have had to deal with open sunroofs as well. Thats always fun.

puddles of water in the middle of an LR3 Surrounded by expensive crap and wiring harnesses.

oh and did I mention all the mold we are sucking in from the spilled food and water coagulating together when we have fix the problems.

I used to work on Rovers. Got a question just ask, need a Rover looked at, Albany, New York.

Seems like you've got everything covered, but for what it's worth you might want to try a carpet shamooer next time. We have a small one (we had puppies who used to escape and run around the house in the night leaving surprises for us in the morning) that we now use to detail the cars in the spring to make sure no salt got left behind (despite mats). Also a quickie car shampooing in NY runs around 30usd-40usd.

Although on our p38 we had the rear flood a few times (despite the dealer recall/fix) and I end up rigging a small hose to a shampoo bottle pump and pumping it out by hand and then lysoling the rest of the spare tire compartment (under the boot floor)

RE:Cleaning water out of truck

I think you should clean through pressure pipes those pipes generally used in garage they used in car wash and clean it help you can wash easily then sometime after they will dry
