what an awesome sighting, great shots too! im jealous, i never see cool rovers on the road, but every time I already have one on the trailer and I see another disco or RR I wave and say "YOU'RE NEXT!"
Goodyear SilentArmors on those rigs. Great AT tire. Not sure why so many still purchase the BFG ATs which is a ~20 (??) year older design. Granted, the BFG AT was OEM on the NAS, but unless you have show car, who cares?

Because it is the best AT tire that has been made in the last 20 years?

Did it have a for sale sign on it? Ronnie, you should buy it...even if it has the stock interior.

I just looked at the old pics of that truck, and they don't appear to have enough similarities. The one you were looking at had different Michelin tires, different side steps, 1 gloss flare, etc. etc.

spotted my doppleganger at LR of Hanover

spoke to the Service Manager. I guess the franchise owner has had this particular 110 for quite a few years. Can't believe I haven't seen it sooner.

On a side note: as I was taking the picture, there were four service techs pushing a dead LR3 from the front of the lot into the rear of the lot. None of them thought is was very funny when I said...."that's about right for an LR3, isn't it?"

Maybe they would have had a better sense of humor if I had been sitting in my Defender and not a prick-stain Cayenne.
