  1. "60 Defenders have officially arrived in the USA for demonstration purposes. These will be at the 4xfar festival presented by @landroverusa in California. It’s been nearly 3 decades since the D110 made its debut in the North American market. It’s good to see the name return officially to US showrooms."
  2. Frontrunner's roof-rack for the new Defender: https://www.frontrunneroutfitters.com/en/us/vehicles/2020-land-rover-defender-roof-rack
  3. I beg to differ - I've seen D3s on ATs go where Defenders with 35" MTs aren't able to go, the one track that stands out is a particularly hectic rocky climb that we did with the club. TR is like any other tool: you need to learn how to use it properly. 👍
  4. First off-road drive in the 2020 LR Defender: https://www.auto-motor-und-sport.de/fahrbericht/erster-check-mitfahrt-land-rover-defender-neu-2020/
  5. Spotted at a petrol station in Swakopmund, Namibia
  6. Sure, but the first time I experienced this was in 2008 on a 110 double-cab, changing tyres - I tried to get into the car to get my wallet was was unable to open the doors, much to the amusement of the techs, and my own surprise. And a few times subsequently, when off-roading. Mind you, when I'm saying cross-axle, this is the kind of thing I'm referring to, not driving around flat muddy fields with maybe one wheel a few cm higher/lower than the others - we have proper off-road tracks here So yes, I can see beyond 'it'.
  7. Yes, the D3/D4 & L320 have a separate chassis, but also a massively rigid monocoque body on top, so unlike the Defender, the body part doesn't actually twist/deform. Admittedly, it is mostly on 2-poster lifts that you see this for Defenders. Just walk into a workshop and ask them about it.
  8. No, nothing wrong with it - seen this on 110s, 130s, etc. Speak to any workshop and they will tell you that unless the vehicle is on the ground, the doors don't really close properly. Modern LRs have extremely stiff unibody - way more than Jap/Yank ones, you will not see a single D3/D4/RR/RRS that suffers from this issue. this is exactly what @FridgeFreezer was saying a few posts back.
