With the Neon Green, I'd say its under priced for $110.00...I'd pay at least $200.00. lol. I'm assuming they just added too many zeros.

more proof that style is inversely proportional to wealth

I think I'm glad there are not a ton of manufactures making aftermarket parts for defenders as I can see he sat down with some 4wheel parts catalogs and went crazy ordering everything! We are stuck trying to find our parts the old fashioned way - waiting for someone to make them

But, it is still a jeep. No offense intended, but apples to apples, no one will ever see it as much more than a modified jeep. The same ones you see 20 times a day.

This thing is unimaginative and stupid. Sorta the kind of SEMA promotional truck or what you'd see on that homo show on Speed (Two Queers Garage).

However I give the seller an "A" for his narrative description unlike the 2-sentence Craigslist ads or broken English horseshit you commonly see when some redneck tries to sell his monster truck.

I also agree with what Jjstahl said about thank god there aren't 2000+ bolt-on mods for Defenders. Then again, I'd like to think Defender owners have a bit more taste anyway (sorry for the Jeep hate)

I like it. The drivetrain would be better with an NV4500 and Atlas II transfer case instead of the slushbox and OEM transfer case. Aesthetically, it needs to have that bizarre green paint stripped off, and the stickers removed, but the point of this vehicle shouldn't be to look pretty and I wouldn't be taking it to car shows anyway. I would enjoy beating the snot out of it.

Just my $.02 as a (gasp) Jeep owner myself.

Not too familiar with these flex racks, but is digging a hole allowed for the rear outer wheel? Two tyres aired down, and two balloons to gain points, seriously? Guess he wants to hear, Oh Joe you are magnificent. Riiiiiight

Why neon green...?

Give the seller credit for the comprehensive write-up. Wish some Defender sellers would be as thorough.

yeah thats a hell of a description. You can tell it was a labor of love (the writeup AND the build up)

60k hmm could we drop all the running gear into an LR?

That's expected when the tires are aired down and nearly all the weight of the vehicle is resting on one tire, in this case the right rear. This phenomenon doesn't occur just on ramps, but also when wheeling harder trails.

To hear you say it like that I'm thinkin well yeah...but thanks for the point. because It didnt auto ring in my head. Keeping the load in mind when wheeling is often over looked.

Its a noun in Chryco circles. Thats why they capitalize it.

Except for the green, I like it. Yes, its all bolt ons but thats why you buy Jeeps. People say Rovers are like Erector sets but in reality, its the Jeeps that are that way. The aftermarket is mind boggling. As much as it is all bolt ons, its all well chosen bolt ons. Air locked D60s are badass, 50 state legal installed 400+ hp V8 is not too shabby, figured out ways to store things in a SWB truck. Hes done it all. At his price, its a deal too. You couldnt do all of that for any less.

For 110k if I was buying a Jeep it would be this.. and I don't think it's even close to 110k.

The Brut...they have a bunch of stuff about it in a "Sheep" magazine I just got in the mail. It's not mine of course, my brother has an FJ and likes the Jeep bits and bobs. The Brut is nice, if one was interested in that sort of wheeled vehicle

A 130 can be had for much cheaper. Legality is in question depending on year. Legal ones are out there though.
