Again, the departure angle has nothing to do with the cargo capacity of the Defender in comparison to the LR4.
The breakover and departure have nothing to do with cargo differences.
The LR4 is larger than the Defender.
You start by chastising me that the Defender is larger than the LR4...
Then why keep saying the Defender is bigger?
The Defender has a longer wheelbase on roughly the same length. That's a decrease in breakover.
The reason Defender has a better breakover has nothing to do with increasing the departure angle.
The reason Defender cargo area is smaller, is because...
I never go to designated campgrounds. Allergic to pavement camping.
I think it depends on time of the week, at least around here. But big uptick in primitive camping, anything close to civilization.
I'll hit some more Sierras before the cold hits, so I hope you're right.
Tough time to buy now. High demand for these.

$50k is the new $35k
I remember when $100k was...
sadly, $65K is right in line with premium 4x4 products
Even the top line Bronco and Jeep Rubicons are $50k+
I'm sure Ineos would sell out instantly at that price. They seem to be teasing it coming to the US, but I don't know...
They are making luxury vehicles, and want high volume sales. They are simply trading on the name.
I have a difficult time seeing much core difference between the LR4 and Defender.
That storage box blocking the rear window, the styling... gives the feeling of designers who have never...
I just got one of these Kovea heaters and it's fantastic. Packs small in its own hardcase.
Perfect to warm up the tent at night and in the mornings, when you don't want to get out of the sleeping bag
I have to give gtfo a plug- they were great to deal with and very fast (faster shipping than...
If you want it built up right, with someone willing to stand behind the work than Slee Offroad is probably the top Toyota guy.
He may be able to help you source a camper box if that company falls through.
Look at his builds, they are excellent
