Okay, I'm tempted to say "yeah, so?". I do believe a Subaru Outback wagon could have made it through the same section with similar drama. Of course, I also believe that the terrain in the video would not have been worth the bother to pull a camera out of the bag if it were a true 4wd truck transversing the area.. Maybe it is just me but I doubt a stock Defender, Discovery or Range Rover would have even needed to lock the center diff to drive through that section..

Ya but it is not a rover... that is a Camper VAN. Pretty bad ass IMHO. I used to have a syncro back in the day, they came stock with a locking rear diff. I also had a 90 at the same time and while a VW will never be a "off roader" it beat the piss out of the 90 when it came time to kick it a the camp site and cooking a meal.

the probelm with the VW vans is saftey... you are the crumple zone.

But as Buck said they are a great rig for a doper

I took the thing to Glamis once and got the funniest looks ever. I tried in vain to run up comp hill!! but it drove around the dunes well on the flats... Hey it made it TO comp hill and out of the basin!!

To get back on topic... I switched to a 110 and have never looked back. Plenty of room, safe, and it dosn't break like a toothpick (like a VW). With a roof tent and custom work inside they are almost as comfy and the VW's and get over twice the milage on the tdi, plus you can drive them in places a syncro could only dream of...

"draft dodging bedwetters" lol & some how dukakis made in in this one

New or old

Is your Tdi 110 a '93 with an engine swap or an old restoration/conversion to modern specs? I was contacted by a fellow board member regarding a '72/'00 110 tdi and was wondering what differences I would realistically experience. Looks just like a stretched 90. I have a '72 SIII 88" and while I love it, I want to make sure my 110 has the more modern interior/insulation/etc.
