Flew to virginia last Monday and picked up 1994 #690 in yellow. Drove it all the way home to GA down I-95. Have wanted a Defender ever since I sold my 1985 cj7 back in 1999.

Yes it is. Going to take several photos for you guys in the morning after I get all these bugs off the front end. Installed some Firestone Destination Mud terrain stock 265s. They look and ride really nice.

Photos would be a lot less hassle if you could upload them from your device but I understand that would cost the site owner extra money for hosting more data.

Ok here you go sir. Pre bath. As you can see from the pics it has a couple of the common problem areas but nothing really major. Have been really happy with it so far besides traveling at low speeds is less than desirable. If you want pics of anything else just holler.

It's funny you say that cause my friend was making fun of me because the tires I took off were practically in brand new condition. I just can't stand BFG rugged trail.
