Cant beat the looks and the extreme rarity of this truck. It is fun to drive and goes anywhere. I get stopped all the time with people asking what the truck is!

Handling Ranked 1994 Jeep Wrangler better.
"Smaller wheel base lends a little better agility on the road."
Back Seats Ranked 1994 Jeep Wrangler better.
"About the same but seem to have more safety built in with regard to seatbelts. My D90 must have lap belts installed and there is a potential for should too but mine is not equipped."

On Safari — This is a vehicle that I have been looking for. My goal is to fabricate some newer style bumpers that give better approach and departure angles. We plan to tuck the exhaust and seal up the belly for break over.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: This vehicle is great for an off road adventure. It is nimble and can navigate well through difficult terrain. The V8 helps to push through your challenges. This defender has all wheel disc brakes and after market ARB air lockers.

Cons: The V8 could use a little more pep. With exhaust hanging below the frame and bumpers hanging out a little to far, there is a little to be desired when it comes to the angles.

Great All Around Car — This truck is a pleasure to drive. The best thing about it is that you can drive it 70 miles an hour on the highway comfortably and it also handles incredibly well off road. Gas mileage is not great but I don't think people interested in this truck are looking for fuel efficiency.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Beautiful looking truck.  Handles equally well in highway and off road

Cons: None

Defende 90 200tdi — Awesome off-road, totally agricultural on the tarmac. It is noisy, rattles, pretty cramped up front for me (I'm pretty tall) but it is honest, reliable and quite simply great fun with loads of on-road presence. I've used Land-Rovers professionally and for fun. They are one of the few cars that can actually truelly excel in what they are designed for.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Puts a smile on my face whenever I drive Wolfy!

Cons: Nothing - I love it!

My Daily Driven Rover. — As the old british saying goes, its the best 4x4xfar. its the most incredible off-road/utility vehicle ever made. It does have its issues now and then, but regardless of what maitainence it may need, it will give you more than you can ask of it. And, its tons of fun to ride in, let alone drive. everything is so precise; you can feel and hear everything its doing from the driver seat, and it does it smooth as glass. Like a good sports car. speaking of that, it handles unusually well for a 4x4, and the brakes amaze me to this day! and, the old rover V8 is peppy, but not as much as you'd expect. it can go kinda fast... at the expence of LOTS of gas. I'm going to fix that though! oh, and driving with the top off in the summer is something anybody who likes cars or the outdoors at all should experience once.

Pros: ITS A LAND ROVER! THE Land Rover! need I say more?

Cons: very road noisy and the factory soft top fits like a bikini on an elephant. you almost need an umbrella.

Yellow Land Rover 90 — Man, I love these things. This ain't my one, but it's pretty much the same. Love my yellow landy. Galvanised chassis, leather seatd, tows a boat, lasts forever! What else could any enthusiast ever need from a car? P.s. It ain't fast!

Pros: It lasts forever

Cons: No matter what you do it WILL leak

This Is A Landy. It Goes Places Which Kill Other Cars And 4x4's, Then Drive Home On The Motorway. — Simply the best off roader. Been around a while without needing much in the way of updating. Designed so well, doesn't need cheap plastic gimmicry. Can I talk the hind axle off you about them some more?

Pros: Easy to fix, cheap to fix, goes anywhere

Cons: Corrosion

The Most Dependable Vehicle Ever? — 90% of all Land Rovers ever built are still on the road. Not to mention off it. Meanwhile, 70% of all Subaru Imprezas ever made have been written off. Other people can go fast, I can go anywhere.

Pros: Solid. Dependable. Low Maintenance. Can go anywhere. Big load space.

Cons: Can get a bit chilly in the winter. Bit slow.
