Land Rover Defender 90 300Tdi Modified Off Road Ready

Sellers Comments -
Welcome to the auction of my Defender 90.

I have owned & loved this truck for over 3 years and I'm a massive Land Rover enthusiast. The V5 is in my name, MOT until 19th August 2019, had an oil & filter this summer and this week have had all 5 tyres taken off, cleaned out and a re-seated, along with a new water pump & starter motor. I have stacks of receipts totalling of thousands of pounds, and there has been a lot more spent on it over the years.

As you can see it's been modified for off road use but this also add's to a Defender's looks, it's a real head turner and people always ask about it.

Here is the spec of the truck:

Venom Winch Bumper
Winch-it 13500lb winch with Wireless Remotes
300Tdi engine fitted
EGR Delete
Wide arches
40mm wheel spacers
5 matching 33x12.5 15 GT Radial M/T Tyres about 3000 miles done on them.
5x 15x10 ET-32 Steel Modulars
2" lift kit
+2" Shock Absorbers
Diff Guards
Steering Guard
Discovery Steering Arm & Bars - much more availability.
Dislocation cones on the rear
RAC Snorkel with K&N Air Filter
Side Exit Exhaust with Td5 Silencer.
Rock Sliders
Swing Away Spare Wheel Carrier with Hi Lift Mount
Rear Ladder
Fold down rear step
Rear recovery point
CB Radio
Small Steering Wheel (Gives you room for your arm in a Defender)
Cubby Box
Two Benches in the back for passengers.
I believe the front seats are Recaro or similar (I have covers on them and they haven't got any name on them)
Discovery 1.2 Transfer Box (helps on the motorway)
Rear LED Lights on a switch on the dash

I have an LED Light Bar which has been removed but I can throw it in, I also some spare parts for the truck which can go with it, including an alternator and front & rear brake discs.

In the last year the following has been replaced: transfer box, turbo, front diff, CV's, radiator, thermostat, water pump, starter motor, snorkel has been fabricated, exhaust has been made, fuel pump tweaked for more power the list goes on and on...

The mileage is stuck on 99,999, I have never thought about getting this fixed. The truck is a little bit tatty round the edges, it's an old Defender which has been used for what it's meant for - getting muddy and having fun! The chassis is in good nick but he bulkhead is a little rusty at the top. The tappets could do with being adjusted, the rear brakes could do with being replaced soon, but I am throwing in the discs and you can pick up the pads cheap. It is amazing off road and you really have to try to get it stuck but being a Defender it's a bit draughty, but that has never phased me.

I am sure I have missed bits off this, I am trying to be as fair & honest as possible, it is an old girl, but it always get me home with a big smile on my face, it turns heads wherever I go and is great off road. You are welcome to come and view, however proof of insurance will be needed if you want to drive it, otherwise I'm driving!

I will be gutted to see this go, I have just started my own business and don't get to use it to it's full potential.

No silly offers, I'm in no rush to sell, good luck with the Auction.
