    90's defender 110

    This is a great forum and a whole raft of overland knowledge but for what you are doing I recommend you pay a visit to NENE overland or Foley's and get a full assessment of your journey, kit needed and talk about buying certified vehicles they have in stock or can source for you from the huge LR...

    Relocate Defender to America

    They are right you will have to leave your 2013 there ... HOWEVER! Buy TWO, No! make that THREE Perenties on auction. Make sure one is a 6x6. Bring them over and freaking sell two for the highest price you can. If you are going to leave your baby in Perth, make the storage costs pay for...

    Take a look at the Defender accessories that I am making - Feedback appreciated.

    This is a good example of getting into the market with niche items that knock off the big expensive items ... I am digging these and for $120 they'd be on one of my trucks. However I'd make attachment point for the owner to put his own wiremesh screen on the backside for bugs and smaller rocks...

    Take a look at the Defender accessories that I am making - Feedback appreciated.

    Wuntenn is right about security products. There are NO LHD related security products in the USA. 3 Pedal lock boxes like the 'Hardcase are well over $500 plus more than $150 shipping to the UDA with a lag time of months since they are custom made. I bought circular lock door hasps for my...

    Should I buy a defender 110?

    Clearly you are stationed at Signonella. LR MAX is right. If you can find a good Left Hand Drive 1989/1990 Defender 110 from Italian Carabinieri stock or go to Germany or the Netherlands and source one, preferably a V8 then do it and do it now. Do not get one that has been heavily modified or...

    40+ Imported Defenders seized by Homeland Security Today (developing story)

    This theory and the stopping exports of thefts from the UK (which are crazy!) has been my working assumption since last year when the great CBP anti-Defender Jihad started at the same targeted dealership in NC. This spring I used a highly reputable importer and shipped my Defenders over from...

    Roof Tent Replacement Ladder

    I have an Eeezi-Awn RTT but the ladder was lost during shipping it back to the USA in my household goods. Apart from bringing a separate ladder do any companies sell replacements here in the USA?
