New to Defenders, Looking to buying advice

Love land rovers and owned multiple ones, but only Discoveries. Looking at grabbing a Defender and am looking for advice on what to look for to avoid a dud, or one that's not worth restoring.

Thanks!

Eric

Yes, they bolt together but my advice is to maintain a stock configuration. In other words, don't mix an under powered trans with a higher powered engine.

Thanks for the advice man! Would probably pull one from overseas once the 2.5 blows. Would love the power of a 300tdi versus the old 2.5. Though I've heard the 2.5 is a pretty good engine
