Just be aware parts are getting hard to come by-well maintained examples are real expensive- 25k plus. Check for rust as most of them in the cheaper range have it. As for gearing- mine runs on 33s, front and rear bumpers and it’s not regeared and I don’t plan on a re-gear.
3300lbs empty translates to 3700 loaded, 15% tongue weight is around 600lbs, well add yourself and a passenger 400lbs, that leaves you a whopping 200lbs for anything you throw in the bed. Payload is your issue, not towing capacity. Most tacomas are around 1200lb- 4 door, 4wd, etc.
Lol we will just disagree. They babied that thing and it failed. The whole experience was a train wreck for Land Rover. I’m still a fan of their old defenders so don’t take this as just a bash on the brand….
Right - what’s wrong with that? You lamented the fact that lots of people watched the video of a defender shortcoming and all the related videos. It’s no different than rubberneckers on the road, people like crashes. You can’t be upset at TFL- you should be upset at Land Rover- if anyone at all..
