Hi!

This 110 is the standard "non-hi capacity pickup". Basically a normal 110 Hardtop/Softtop without the Hardtop. Just a LR "Truck Cab" mounted. This Model has been available from the beginning of the "Defender era".
You can mount this Truck Cab on every 88/109 or 90/110...If you've got a Station, you only need the Tailgate additionally.

I think the 110 Hi Capacity and the 127/130 CrewCab has been produced from the late 80s or from the middle of the 90s on. They have got an extra load bed instead of the standard "integrated" one mentioned above. They're exceptionally good for people who want a camper conversion...

Michael,


Great breakdown, and thanks for not getting pissed b/c your thread is getting HIJACKED !! LOL.
I really like the 'middle' 2 of the pics you posted.

I'm figuring by 2008, I can go to the UK or elsewhere, find a cheap 1983 Defender Pickup for say maybe $5k ?, then legally import it then.

Thanks.

David,

Yeah, that one is awesome... too rich for my blood though. What a beast !

I think the truck @ Copley is a joke I dont see how anyone could ask that much for a Defender. I say 40k at best.

That one looks like a standard 110 with a pick up cab. I thought the Hi-Cap had a different style bed to accommodate the heavier load.

I was thinking more like the photos in Mike Richter's post the middle two.... The second photo is a reg pickup and the third is the HiCap. Nicholas's post looks more like the second photo rather than the third.

The 110 Truck cab, which is not the Hi-Cap, was available in 84. Here's one in Alberta, http://www.buysell.com/showad.asp?id=29072301.

They are not that uncommon and can be made using any 3 door 110 and and a truck cab.

Okay guys, this info comes from Land Rovers head of press in the UK who i happened to be talking to a few weeks ago.

Current Defender will switch a new engine in 2006 to get the model to comply with Euro emissions regs. This will be the Ford 'Puma' diesel engine.

New Defender should see the light of day in 2008. Expect it to be based on the LR3 platform so yes, that means independent suspension. No other clues other than that.

Current Defender production will crossover with new Defender production until at least 2010, which kinda suggests new Defender will not be a stripped down 'working' truck.

So they're going to do the Hummer vs. H2 thing.

Sucks. Perhaps by 2010 they'll be able to make it fly and then it all won't matter.

Or by 2010 the outcry will be enough that they won't dicontinue the old Defender. Ford has gone through this before when they tried to replace the Mustang with the probe.

The above photos of the Bronco I've seen from a Ford source but the Defenders I think were someones rendition using the Bronco layout. The Bronco was not a copy of the Defender as some have thought it is a modernization of the first generation Broncos similer to what has happened to the T-bird and Mustang. I actually hope they release the Bronco, it's about time Ford got back into the small off roader game again instead of trying to use the Defender.

I dredged those photos up a long time ago...found them on some random site in the UK...they were also posted on Motor Trend along with some video of a prototype. That article with Matt Taylor...is also a year old. So much can change in a year....like the focus of a company, which most of us have witnessed with the advent of the LR III.

Honestly...I really don't care anymore. As I mentioned earlier in one of my posts...the Defenders that we know and love will be a radical departure from anything that Ford decides to roll out on our side of the pond...

I second that.... Just look at any "progression" made in the auto industry. Vehicles are getting more "comfy" and more electronics to confuse us. The Hummer is a perfect example. The H2 is shit compared to the H1, in my opinion.

Also, isn't it true at Billings, every year, they completely tear down and build up a Series vehicle in a day or two. Now that is AWESOME!

That seems to be the trend of all vehicles. I am going to order a 2006 F-350 for the same reason. The F series was always meant to be a tough working line of trucks. Now they put coil springs on the front axle because people claimed the ride was too harsh. Hell, if the people used the truck loaded down, like it was intended to be, you couldn't get a better ride. I am just scared that Ford is really going to F-up the new F250/350 for 2007. As far as the H2 goes, it is just an overpriced 2500HD with an ugly body. H1's have been getting "plusher" every year also.

Last I heard, MoD is a large factor in Defender still being in production. May be wrong on this tho'. I suspect that until they find an acceptible substitute, Defenders will continue to roll off the production line.

Saw this beauty on eBay... It's a restored 1983 110 Pickup 3.5 v8...

Buy it now of $16,900... pretty neat, and it's in the U.S.

I still think waiting another few years and importing one for less is the route I'll go.

In any case, here's the linK:

and a pic...

d-90 comming back to US?

I've read the D-90 is comming back to the US. Does anyone know when it would be avaliable? Can one get on a wait list? If it is comming back does anyone know if it is going to be a similar style as the 97's or are the going to ruin the truck and copy what hummer did with the H2.
