Ha. I put a rear axle (the whole assembly with brakes and all) in the back of a honda accord sedan. I also put an 88in tub on the roof of that same car. I will manage.

I don't know what to say Keith. I'm sad that you're encouraging this. I might drop by the lot to piss on it.

Gators don't scare me. But velociraptors, now those scare me. You need to buy the other truck if you want to frighten me away.

When it was on ebay, I offered the PO $12k, because it was probably going take me $5k to remove the "gator".

That truck can best be described as "special". Yikes!!!

Copley applauds this?

Shocking....

Follow-up Post:

I'm all for having fun for the kids but WTF.....Talk about pissing money down the drain, not to mention it is just plain horrible to do that to the beautiful color coniston.

Follow-up Post:

"Some purists will
whine "how could you do such a thing to a Defender."

PURISTS!!! How about anyone with correct vision!!

I strongly suspect that this will be restored to coniston green before it makes it to a final owner ... the market for Defenders is not that strong ... especially ones that have the car equivalent of an ex-wifes name tattoo ...

Apart from that looks pretty decent.
