Several day's worth of camping gear, a discreet range of long guns, two daughters...(add in a fiancee if you want to cube out a little more but nothing too significant)

...A radio you can hear, 75mph cruising, bluetooth and the D2 is has even more cargo room and is more comfortable.

Keep the Disco, or sell both and get a 110.

That is actually pretty awesome. Are those 1620s on the bottom? Nicely done.

Why do you want to hear anything or get there in a timely fashion : )?

You're right...Pedro should drive an LR3 too!

You just read my mind!!

The back of a Defender will be plenty warm - especially if you keep all the kids nice and close.

On the bottom of the rear cargo or the pic of the rack?
Rear cargo has 2x 1510's (one tools, one recovery).
Roof rack...I think that is one of my storm cases that is the equivalent of a 1600 and a peli that's a little larger.

I did like Pedro's vote for a Defender but his like equivalent (the series) has its own weather inside it so that's not viable-but the Dii ps shits the bed and its dead to him

Sell that Disco, those Bosch engines are prone to failure.

I didn't ride in a car with AC until I was 4 years old, I didn't ride in a car with air bags until I was 7 or 8. I "rode" most of my childhood standing on the bench seat of a Chevrolet truck. I guess I am lucky my parents could drive. Children don't need creature comforts and all that bullshit...

Ah, I was talking about the 1510s...they're a similar style to the 1620s which is why I thought that. I've been sporting 1550s lately since they are a good grab-n-go size (obviously):

1550 is a nice size that is tough to make too heavy; I've been happy with the 1510's b/c of the wheels and extending handle. Started life as a their Laptop Overnight Case but they're a little too heavy for that application.

Good point made on the Bosch engine problems. I don't view the choice on creature comforts in the same vein-I'd rather be able to throw my family into the vehicle and drive 5hrs (or more) to somewhere and not be exhausted and beaten up when I get there-but that's just my application. I grew up on the bench seat of a Ford F100 with no seat belt but that was a long time ago.
