Whats the most you've ever fit in your Defender?

I have to go pick up this behemoth of an armoire tomorrow in the Defender. I'll probably just pop the alpine bow out and the secure it down with some blankets and straps. It's 43" Wide x 70" High x 24" Deep.

Made me think of all the other crazy and/or heavy stuff I've fit back there (just barely I might add). I have fit an armoire back there before, but it was smaller than the one I'm picking up tomorrow.

Here are a few of the ones I have taken pics of. A full size bed frame (not pictured were the side rails that my grandfather bent out of (I think) iron that were easily 60 pounds each and SHARP!!), 3 kegs and ice and stuff, a set of KM2s and Boost wheels, and a love seat.

Let's see what you've done!

After the Tdi finally gave up during our Alaska trip in 2011, we had to move everything from my truck into Josh's... so there was now 2 D90s worth of crap in one truck, or as Josh said "10 pounds of shit in a 5 pound bag"....

When Neill's truck broke down hard coming home from our Alaska trip and had to be shipped home from the dealership in Vegas. We had to cram everything from his truck into mine. He didn't think I could get everything in there... But I did!

30 bags of cellulose insulation, with room to spare. The guys at Home Depot are always amazed at how much fits in. I've also had 30 bags of concrete in the back, but it starts to sag with the weight.

Josh, you are too young to own, touch, look for, shop for or transport antiques. Unless the red head is a beard. :-)

I had to get some 16' pieces of molding from a building supply store once - walked up to the back of the 109, opened the rear door, slid the molding in across the top of the right front passenger seat and closed the rear door to the utter amazement of the guy who brought the molding out. He couldn't see that the right vent flap was open and the molding stuck out past the nose of the truck.
