Columbia Maryland Defender?

Hi,

I was at a parking lot in Columbia, Maryland - and saw this Defender. I live in Columbia, and had never seen it.

This Defender was AWESOME! Totally Hard Core! Is the owner on this site? We will have to catch up some time, if so.

If it is someone on the forum we should talk to them about those dirt plows they have attached to all four sides.

Interesting rockslider/step/D-shackle/tree nerf combo...


Nothing says hardcore like a winchless winch bumper and 20 year old AT tires...

Not many people run dual tank with the ROW and NAS style fillers. That's a lot of fuel to be carrying around.

Those sliders are definitely quite massive

I posted this truck in the sightings thread a few years back around Baltimore.

OK…….I did not post this to make fun of the guy or his truck. I was trying to see who he was and welcome him to the community

Ed - how do you tell he is carrying all that fuel? Is that a second fill point behind the passenger door. DAMN - I was late for a meeting and only had about 30 seconds to look at the truck. I should have taken more pictures.

Anyway - I thought it was interesting that I had never seen this truck before - if he is around Columbia a lot. Defenders stand out, but this one really stands out.

Later,

FLAGG

There is another 'cut out' in the body behind the passenger door, similar to the fuel fill in the rear fender. Most European D-90's had their main fuel tank under the passenger seat, not in the rear like NAS trucks.

This truck appears to have both tanks installed..

Sorry Flagg, I dont mean to harsh on the guys 90.

On the plus side, its got a full galvy exo/rollcage, tire carrier and step bumper.
And cappings!
And dual fuel tanks give it a cruising range in excess of 200 miles!

Minus for the rear step that hangs as low as the trailer hitch....

Nothing is as irritating as the winchless winch bumper on any truck.... seriously.
Just drop $300 and get something from Amazon and bolt it in!

Oh, and Conniston Green is my 2nd favorite color.

I really like it. The steps are a bit much, but maybe the owner is short or needs help due to age/medical issues. The galvanizing is great and it looks really clean like someone really cares for it.
