    Worth asking..Defender ?

    It is worth asking, as someone may have a stalled project or parts rig. I am looking for a legally imported Defender 110/130 project. I have all the parts needed to build a Defender but need the US legal base for one. Message me here.

    130 suspension question

    Shayne and the rest of y'all driving the big rigs, what is the best set up for loaded 130? We rented the 130 camper, which had a relatively light Tischer camper. It sagged when parked, and was a little ponderous on corners. It had the std. coils with the 130 helper coils inside. Do you guys...

    We are beginning the real prep for an overland adventure. Short term, I keep working and we take trips as we can around Europe. Long term, we just hit the road. Currently sitting (or getting in the way being 'helpful') at Mehari offroad store here in Darmstadt.

    Defender Air Suspension

    At Abenteur und Allrad show, I made an offhand remark about LR4 air suspension... Lo and behold I recieved a quick Nakatanenga demo of the 110 air suspension they carry. Super cool. Too pricey for me, anyone know how it rides?

    KGH's Defender

    Work has transferred the wife and I to Germany for the foreseeable future. The LR4 went into storage, so we picked a 2012 Defender from a dealer in Augsburg. Due to the status of my employment, I am not subject to VAT (a 19% Value Added Tax common here) so it was basically 20% off sticker...

    East Coast Defender are Stand Up Guys

    A few of you have seen the build thread I had posted on a Defender 110. Long story short, plans changed due to transfer overseas, build plans changed, build dates were pushed back, conversations were had, and East Coast Defender and I got into a bit of a pissing contest. The final outcome is...
