Ex mod trucks

I was wondering how many ex mod owner we have on here? Why you bought an ex mod and would you buy another instead of a civilian spec truck.

Yes, yes, and price was right. I also think that ex mod trucks have some pluses. Military spares no expense for maintainance. Though they may have been beat on, so to speak by picking the right truck you can really get a solid rover.

Mine was a combination of right price at the right time, a solid truck in LHD, and I also like the way the ex MOD trucks look, there's nothing bling about them, everything has a useful function else its not put on. I would bring in another too, always wanted a "lightweight" but not got the cash at the moment.

I bought mine because of price, bang for your buck, looks, simplicity and I like them.

I bought one when I was in the UK. It was a civilian spec. Pluses were low mileage and incredibly solid frame and bulkhead. Negatives were no options bare interior. The negatives really aren't that negative considering the options are nearly nonexistent and the interiors are only slightly less bare.

I would probably buy another ex-mod and if you are over there and can look at them before hand you can pick out one that has been refurb'd then decommissioned.

110 gs radio. And would buy it back again. It all depends on what you wanna do with it, almost like picking up a pup.

Hi All,

I just finally got my Tithonus 1986 LHD ExMod 110. I was wondering if anyone has the operating/maintenance/parts manuals for the specifc MOD version? I've seen some 87+ Defender civilians ones but are they the same? Does it even matter?

Thanks,
Tom

NATO can lockers are the reason I bought an ex-MOD. 900 miles without refueling makes all the difference on a ten-day trip to the desert. I was bumming gas after 250 miles in my NAS 90.

I have a LHD ex-mod out of BATUS. It was pretty used up when I got it. A Tithonus probably would have been cheaper but when mine is done, it will be pretty nice.

The Tithonus LHD trucks are 7500gbp. Importing probably costs 3k-5k depending where you live and how you do it.

I was told there are no more LHD, but Withams has lots of RHD trucks. And I'm guessing more LHDs will become available if they aren't already.

All up you are going to be in for about $17K to get one in the US - then the left coast would be more...
