Josh is on the job. I'm sure the truck will show up in some South African classified advertisement and Josh will spot it. I never knew anyone who can spot a Defender just by a pin size ding.

Someone wanted this particular truck.

I guess its time for a dog.
My hooligan theory is out the door... Sorry to see this.

This certainly looks like it was done by pros.

distinct features

The truck has some very distinct features that would require a lot of replacement items to mask.

Mark, you may want to reach out to ebay. I would consider anybody that was watching the vehicle that is from the Wilmington or neighboring areas to be a suspect for police. I'm confident they would have a record of it.

ebay has developed a much closer relationship with law enforcement over the years. necessary to maintain their legitimacy as a safe harbor for selling and buying. you never know

It had power windows, central locking, back up camera, touch screen navigation etc.

I hadn't seen it since Mark put his treatment on the truck but it looks great in the ebay pictures. I really would have liked to see the side step/ rock sliders that move out when you open the door and the slide back into place when the door closes.

I was hoping they got 160k for it since I have 2.

Not going to even ask where you found that picture but yes that is the truck a couple thousand hours of labor ago.
