Thanks I'm from the great white north, but do love the USA,winter is coming and we need to export snow to you. I love the forum, maybe madthat we can import 15 year old Defenders. Where I live I've only seen 3 as I drive around and get the Land Rover wave, the jeep guys I tell them real men build their trucks any one can buy a one.

Just seen this on my email and wanted to share it. Iíve boughtmy 110 plates from them. Here is a pic of the New D130, just ordered one also.Here is the company name in the UK, I bought direct from them before. The nameof the business is Falon Nameplates Limited in the UK.

A Wall Street Jounal report.
I'm not sure but I think there is dead Taliban next to the 110.

Very nice! On both accounts!

Aside from the right rear sliding window, it appears the 110 fared well. I've seen more bullet holes in Canadian 110's recently than that one. ;-)

Looks like LED tail lights.
Possibly a new acquisition because I've never seen this one around here before.

Truth! Probably a lighter load than its rated for, but still against policy. Oh, well. It Works! ;-) I've been tempted many a time! I'll bet he had to pull that hoop set to clear.

I am not sure if this will classify as a sighting but it was cool to see Phoneix37's burly S1 on my morning IG scroll.

I think that is an old pic from when Ike owned it. Funny how the internet recycles.

I thought there was a post where someone here provided uhaul with all the weights and got a certain year 109 approved for their trailers.

I think it's the truck INSIDE the truck that's the issue.

I don't think it's the trailer in question.

I understand that, but they make you sign something for the trailer saying what you put on it. I've never heard of being asked what year car you're putting IN the truck.

I had an issue with a uhaul enclosed trailer when I was picking up a garden tractor, something about gas tanks and the such, I told them it had been sitting in a field for ten years so I didn't think it was an issue.

It's about the same as you can't take an empty propane tank into home depot as it may blow up, nevermind the hundreds of mapgas, butane and propane cartridges on the shelves, which in our local store is next to the oils and greases.

Maybe I should have said it was a diesel engine?

Always just say you are towing a Honda Civic or miscellaneous household junk.
