fairly certain that all the Perentie 6x6's are 140 inch wheelbase not 110 or 127.

Just me but I'd be wary of any seller advertising something where he's off by 30 inches on the wheel base

Just get one of the old Classic Range Rover fire tenders from the 70's/80's and rob the components they where all 6x6. I got chased down the runway by those, unfortunately, really regularly in Britain and at RAF Akrotiri.

Ive heard from some mates in the ADF that the 6x6 tend to brake center axels when on gravel. I cant remember the whole story but something about the two rear axels fighting and the center one always losing. He said delayed a lot of the road marches and told me to stay clear of them and just get the 4x4. Not sure why or how but they where not well licked in his unit they much preferred the 4x4.

I have only seen a military 6x6 sitting at a stand still in England.
We are wanting to make this super fast for street driving and capable off road.
The client has the funds to do what ever our minds can imagine. I would like to build this truck, but of course its pointless if its going to have problems all the time.

Has anyone put a Duramax in a Defender?
It looks like it would be a really tight fit, but we are concerned about over powered engine vs. Chassis/axle strength.
I'd really like to hear if anyone has tried it before we go down that road.

There was an article in Land Rover monthly 18 months or two years ago about a kid over in England that put the 6.6 in a 90. Main thing I took from the article was it took him forever. Seems like way overkill though. For the money you are talking about throwing into this thing why not look at the new baby Duramax that's coming in the Colorado?

It has been done in AUS. Check out the AULRO board. Certainly an interesting build.

Cummins has their 5.9 and a second 5.0 diesel going into the Nissan Titan
I like the width of the Perentie simply because it gives you engine space to work with.
The 5.9 mates well with the NV4500. Marks adapter has an adapter from that box to the lt230 or at least had one. Otherwise go with GM gas engines.

Here's a thread on Pirate you might find interesting. 6X6 conversion - Pirate4x4.Com : 4x4 and Off-Road Forum

Since money is no object for your client I was going to point you to Foley Land Rover Sales, Conversions, Repairs, Servicing and Export. Defender, Discovery, Range Rover, Essex, London, Hertfordshire, Bishops Stortford, Woodford Green, Loughton, Cheshunt, Harlow, Epping, Hertford, Ware, Thornwood, Turnford, Roydon because they also sell the components. Or at least used to. I just had a look and they may be out of the 6X6 business and just do 4X4.
But you might check with them.

There's nothing wrong with Cooper Tires. I have them and am quite satisfied. Overland Journal gave them a good review. There is no reason to pay $200+ on tires with big names when Hankook and Cooper will do the same job for half the price.

I think the gripe should be, "Cooper Tires on a £200k vehicle." Then you have a valid point.

I've BTDT with Cooper. Had multiple sidewall failures for no reason. Never again.
Glad you agree with me that $200k vehicles should have something better than Cooper tires.
