Project Badass

Self proclaimed, that is:
Land Rover Defender 4 Door Custom Defender 110 | eBay

I also rather enjoyed the "Badass" claim coupled with the "carebear" userid on eBay.

with a 3.5 it should be called …"drags ass"… so what they boosted the original 130hp to a whopping 150hp?

ok, after watching the video, never mind. I was feeling the color and interior mods, but...
Did he nearly wipe out at 1:07?



whoever shot this video needs to be deported to Michigan... first the car looked like it was having a seizure then I nearly got a seizure with all the "look at me I have high beams on my roof" shots...

Hey, it's different at the very least. AND SOMEONE WILL BUY IT!!!!!

If it's Matt...sorry.. Andy, the owner of Arkonic then it's quite possible that he nearly wiped out.. Rumour has it that he just recently rolled his Toyota or similar with a customer in it...he doesn't even drive a defender.. Doesn't say much for his faith or love for the product..

I actually love Michigan. Awesome golfing. Beautiful country side. But apparently Detroit needs some love so maybe arkonik can set up shop & revive the economy there.

So lets add totally illegal drive by Arondik. All vehicles in England have number plates front and rear.

This is definitely one vehicle that fails the "as built by manufacturer" CBP test.

That dumb video tells a potential buyer absolutely nothing about the vehicle. It seems like it was made to appeal to a 13 year old boy.

Trying to figure out how, after all the trouble normal trucks have these days, they even let it out of the shipping box for photos.

Heard the other day one of their trucks owned by someone up our way lost its bonnet on the highway as it was improperly installed. Also heard about a litany of further engine related issues in same truck. Scary.

This guy's previous ad for this truck had him flexing his muscles next to the vehicle. He looked liked Meat Head Rob Lowe.
