No fair that newer Defenders can be imported into Mexico, but not here.

Maybe there is some NAFTA loophole to get one into the states from Mexico...

Tons of beautiful defenders in Niarobi, but what wad interesting is that they still have a fleet of dark green Series III pickup trucks that use as tow truck for the city. There was at least one or two at every major roundabout.

You know it's illegal in NYC to take pics of Land Rovers while driving a Jeep, just thought I'd let you know.

I like the color of the Jeep

And I'm the one being accused of drinking so early in the day. hahaha

It looks more like a Jeep to me than a D90.

And BTW, there is an orange D110 in NYC. I used to see it a lot by the exit of the Battery Tunnel.

A guy in florida took imported japanese and dubai spec defenders and painted them all sorts of colors - bright frog green, that orange w/ black roof, murdered out, silver, etc.

Does that windshield surround (A-cage) attach/terminate at the front fender NAS style, or does it attach to a slider or outrigger lower down? Hard to tell, but it looks different and of bigger tube to me.
