3bde means 3rd Brigade, however the red desert rat (actually a gerbil) symbol is for 7th Armoured Brigade, the Desert Rats. The symbol was originally of the 7th Armoured Division famous for their exploits against Rommel in WW2.

The electronic goodies on the new ones make a helluva difference for the positive. I wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't seen it.

Very nice looking 109/1962, I see you have the same problem getting into the carport. Wish my Defender had similar door handles and front door glass window sliders as on your 109.

The doors should be compatible and not too expensive. I had Series Doors on my 97 Defender 110 hardtop...

This came in the shop the other day, its an '84 110





The body is all new, looks to be modern,








interior all new,










TD5 engine


Didnt take any pics of the undercarrage, but definitely an 84 chassis.

Some one spent a lot of $$$ to have a modern Defender here

Dunno about Canada but that truck is completely illegal in the U.S.

Great pics Trailtrick....

I love in the basic dash in Series trucks.....

Do you find the standard ride with leaf springs too harsh or have you upgraded to aftermarket softer leafs?

Next time you have it out can you take some pics of the engine along with some full body shots out of the car port please?

I just sold my wife's Disco II, when we realized it was drinking almost $800 per month worth of fuel. Great truck but the mileage is criminal.

In my infinite wisdom I'm not looking at Defenders on Ebay....dummy.
