Land Rover Defender 300 Tdi

Sellers Comments - 1998 Defender County 300 Tdi. I bought this Land Rover a year ago in a change of direction from American trucks, and to be honest, it’s not for me. I know they’re extremely popular, but although it will anywhere, it’s too basic for me. I’ve been told by Land Rover fanatics that this a very good one for its age. The bulkhead and doors are very good in respect of rust issues. The chassis is also good and benefits from having the rear cross member replaced by the previous keeper. Mechanically it’s sound and starts on the button every time, (I’m sure the new battery I put on helps and will do so for years to come). In a vain attempt to bring it kicking and screaming into the 21st century, I’ve added a centre console to house a touchscreen head unit with sat nav and apple car play. Drivers seat rails create a little more leg room, new head lights, LED sidelights etc, rear work lights and light bar make sure the way is well lit which ever direction you’re going. I’ve also added side steps, rear folding step, new exhaust, Terrafirma 2” suspension, and rear window cages for a little security. Currently on SORN, will have new MOT for new owner
