    after two weeks of bike riding in Alaska about 10 years ago the only LR we saw was a series 3 long wheel base that looked like he had a hard life

    I was wondering the same... if they were training, you would've thought they would've been complete :scratch

    Also the wheels and tow bar of the HL 34 AA vehicle are distinctly civvy...

    Despite being completely impractical for civvy use, still want one!

    i think the hl34aa is not a wolf or tum, but a wmik retrofitted older 110 or defender....

    But a civvy 110? Don't think I've ever seen a MOD landy with that towbar... but I'm not sure what the rules are on civvies getting those reg plates...

    That's a great looking Rangie - I can see why you regret selling it!

    That's the most effective camo I've ever seen. It's hard to look at, let alone see good detail of what the car actually looks like.

    The current model Range Rover is not body on frame. The new model will be 1k lb lighter through the extensive use of alloy in the body. Due out as a 2013. There are also over 7 new engines being developed IN HOUSE to replace the current Ford and Peugeot power plants.( currently the biggest limiting factor to production, cant get enough engines to meet demand. especially with Evoque)
