I'm not sure I understand your train of thought. First you are comparing an Isuzu Rodeo to a Defender 110 and now you are asking about the handling of an armored Defender?

We want to help, but it's difficult when we can't easily parse your posts.

Can you please explain what it is you're actually asking in more specific terms? What kind of armored Defender? An MDT? OVIK? Some custom job with AR500 strapped to the body panels?
