On the subject of BAD ASS RIGS, what's the longest Land Rover truck that's been recorded so far and has anyone any details of any and who built it.

PS I am building a Discovery chassis hybrid fifth wheel truck and want to see the scale of these trucks lengths before I decide on the final length. Sorry for hijacking the post

There are lots of Range Rover limos that are stupid long, if that's what you are asking.

I was thinking along the lines of defenders and series type trucks but the limo is awesome. I want to build a day to day vehicle that has the bolt on fifth wheel, so I can remove it for carrying loads of crap in the pickup.
Cheers for the replies guys
