Land Rover Defender TDCI 110 Double Cab 2.4 litre Puma, 2008, 50k miles

Sellers Comments -Land Rover Defender TDCI Double Cab first registered June 2008, 2.4 litre Puma Engine, 50,398 miles. I've owned this truck since March 2013 and had it maintained by a Land Rover specialist garage regardless of cost. Serviced every year, last service was 16/09/2021 at 48,135 miles, Mot 18/08/2022 but I will put a whole year on for the buyer prior to collection. Please note that this is not an immaculate 'Chelsea Tractor' it has been modified for use as a shoot vehicle, both on our own little farm shoot and on other shoots that I beat and pick up on. It has been used to pull a trailer and carry ladders across fields and up farm tracks as part of my volunteer work for the Wildlife Trust as a Barn Owl monitor and as a part time fence erector. It's a very solid and reliable truck but it does have the odd battle scar from overgrown hedges, with a bit of missing paint and the odd dent, although nothing serious. The back seats have been removed to make room for dogs beds / cages so that the rear load space can be fully utilised. I have also disabled the central locking on the rear doors for my dogs safety, but this can be easily reconnected. Standard features; Four wheel drive, dual ratio (High / Low) 6 speed manual gearbox with diff lock (all works perfectly) Power Steering Traction control ABS Electric front windows Central locking, immobiliser and alarm. Air Con (needs a re-gas) Extras are; 5 x Genuine Maxxus Mach 5 alloy wheels fitted with 265 BF Goodrich Mud Terrains with loads of tread. (these are 8 inch rims so can take a much wider tyre if required) Heavy duty alloy steering / sump guard Basket style front diff guard Slider style rear diff guard Fire and ice style tubular side steps with black rubber treads Rear adjustable tow hitch with electrics Rear heavy duty galvanised and powder coated swing away spare wheel carrier.

Snow Cowl Headlight guards Powder coated flat wire mesh grill (gives you more room to get the winch cover on/off without scraping your fingers) Bearmach raised air intake (Snorkel) Custom made low profile roof rack with light mounts housing 4 LED spot and flood light units. Rear canopy. Newer style with zip and velcro fastening rather than fiddly cords. Tub mounted Metallics Chequer plate storage drawer with twin locks. Plywood false floor covering storage drawer for security. Plywood false floor in rear seat area to facilitate dogs beds / cages to be fitted or use as extra load space. Rear floor and footwell have been lined with rubber matting to allow for sticks and gunslips to be transported in the footwell out of sight and kept dry. Twin Corbeau high back reclining seats with low side bolsters, specially designed for ease of entry in 4x4s. The seats are fitted on raised runners to allow them to be pushed back further, giving loads of legroom. Metal mesh dog guard between seats. Extra padded cubby box lid to match seats. Smaller Momo leather steering wheel to allow more shoulder room. Passenger dash has carbon look glove box conversion for extra storage. Matching carbon look centre console housing twin USB power ports and Alpine Head Unit. The Head Unit has both USB and Aux ports as well as an excellent quality Bluetooth mobile phone hands free facility incorporating a remote microphone located above the driver on the windscreen pillar. PLEASE NOTE The vehicle was purchased from MX 4x4 salvage in 2013 when it was registered as Stolen / Recovered - Cat D Basically it was stolen and stripped of doors, roof, bonnet, wheels and the XS leather interior so the salvage yard replaced the missing parts from their second hand stock, all except the bonnet which I think was new. The mileage when I bought the truck in March 2013, showed just over 17,100 miles with the MOT certificate issued on 04/01/2013 showing 16622. I cannot guarantee that this mileage is genuine as it came from a salvage company who issue a disclaimer that recorded mileage may not be correct on any of their vehicle sales, but I have no reason to believe it was not genuine and I can guarantee the mileage covered over the last nine years with with all service and MOT certificates during my ownership at 33k. Over the nine years of my ownership I have replaced most of the used parts with new, all except for the front doors and the roof. These panels were poorly prepared before painting and now show the original colour around the edges. The rear doors are from a 2013 truck which I had professionally prepared and sprayed in the correct Stornaway Grey. Viewings, Test Drives and Third Party inspections, welcomed and recommended. I want buyers to be happy with what they're getting. All questions answered via eBay messenger. Vehicle located in North Suffolk
