Landrover Defender 90 TD5 BIG SPEC
Sellers Comments -
I have for sale my TD5 Defender which has been extensively modified from the standard vehicle I started with. It certainly has wanted for nothing with axel oils changed after every off road outing involving water and engine oil. Filter changed every 3000 miles. Although the engine has covered some hefty miles it has been refreshed and professionally tuned to 180 bhp and supporting a very large ally sport intercooler to cope with charge temps. I am quite a fussy person and I like things done once and professionally so all the mods have been done to a good standard to last a long time.

When I went to buy this vehicle I discovered it has been a Cat D at an early point in its life. Alarm bells rang and I had the vehicle checked. The damage had been to the drivers rear side of the tub. After having it looked at it transpired only panel damage had occurred which had been repaired and new wheel arch fitted to a good standard. There we NO chassis or structural damage. Hence I brought the vehicle and it has served me well ever since.
The vehicle can come with 5 no. 35" maxis treps on challenger bead lock rims at the asking price or can come with 5 no. 35x1250 bfg mud terrains on 10j deep dish rims for the lower price of £11995.00
Selling purely as I've only been off Road in her once last year, she needs a new home where she will get used to her full potential.
