I actually saw that first truck and was tempted to start a thread called "rovers that suck." The roll cage is so poorly done that it looks like an aerial, and its a 130 rapier truck for gods sake - thats a terrible thing to make a tomb raider clone out of. That POS is still even OD under the bonnet. Plus, all the BS in the write up is just plaing trying too hard.

And the other one is a mish-mash of BS to try and convince you its a 25 year old truck, which is clearly crap.

Just had to be contrary!

The tomb-loser has been on ebay many times previously. Unless someone has been actively up-fitting rapier's.

Well, that 130" abortion, i stuck the VIN into my microcat (land rover parts catalogue) and it comes out as a 4 door 3.9 rangerover!! an early one, 3.5 car with 4 speed auto, so i don't think that the paperwork is true.

also, the wolf look-a-like, is a ppor copy. they havn't even got the correct roof (the "wolf" defender XD vehicles dont have a 'canvas' roof, but a new type plastic affair, and it also sits about 6" higher than the standard military/civvy roof.

they've not bothered to fit the correct front lights either.



and if you want to get really picky..... it's got the wrong axles and bonnet! LOL!

It seems like madness, but it could be shill bidding. It doesnt even look good.

Calls it an '84, yet it's origin's are clearly 300Tdi. Ignoring the badges, the steering wheel and tunnel are the real giveaway.
