I recently shared a Toyota 4Runner classified and discussed the benefits of owning a vehicle such as this, which is suitable for both overlanding and everyday life. Well, I’m excited to offer another fantastic do-it-allalternative, the Land Rover LR4.
Handsome, rugged, and oozing British charm—no, it’s not me—is today’s tastefully modified LR4. Here in the land of Shakespeare, crumpets, and Monty Python,this particular model is a popular choice amongst the wealthier folk for dropping kids off at polo, navigating Kensington’s speed humps, and wafting down to second homes in Ascot. Consequently, the LR4 isn’t always the first choice for overlanding, and that’s a pity because it’s a very capable go-anywhere vehicle (check out Scott Brady’s review here). This super clean, meticulously serviced, one-owner example benefits from a selection of quality upgrades that enhance this model’s stock all-terrain performance while retaining its everyday usability.
From the seller:
“I’ve been dragging my feet, but it’s time to move forward and sell myFuji white on ebony 2012 LR4. I love this truck, as does my family, but we’ve simply outgrown it. I ordered this Land Rover new in 2012 and opted for the following upgrades from the factory: HD pack, HSE specification with rear TV/DVD players, vision assist, and the cold climate package. It does have provisions for third-row seats, but I removed those long ago to cut weight and gain more space for the fridge (these can be bought on eBay and installed with a few bolts; the seat belts and carpets are still in place).
This truck has always been a third or even fourth vehicle for me and has subsequently never been driven in road salt (except for one event per year, the Winter Romp), so the frame and undercarriage are in superb condition. Moreover, it has always been garaged, washed, and waxed. Carfax can also be provided, which is, of course, clean.
A full-Service history and a PDF containing all receipts are available upon request. I even have the original window sticker, brochure, and forms from new. Early services were performed by the dealer and later by our local shop. I will be including many spare parts I have bought over the years and useful accessories, such as an air suspension bypass emergency kit. I might consider a Tithonus 110 or 4×4 Kei dump truck on trades, but nothing else. Please, no tire kicking. I’ll answer questions as best I can.”
