I didn't intend my post to have a condescending tone, and judging by your response I apologize that it came across as such. I've restored about a dozen Defenders, and while I'm no expert, I know the hard parts pretty well. Yes, there are a slew of changes throughout the years, most of which are refinements and modernization of components (drivetrain aside), but the way the truck 'works' has gone mostly unchanged.

Put a stripped down Ninety next to a modern D90 and you'll see two nearly identical vehicles, even though the Ninety isn't 'technically' a Defender.
