Hello from Arizona!

Hi all,

New guy here just learning about Defenders and I'm VERY interested in becoming an owner! I'm pretty sure I want a 110, probably with the V8, but still doing research and reading forums. I need to be able to put COLD A/C in if it's not already standard to survive the summers here. Would like to keep cost around $30k USD if that's feasible. I can do most work if parts are generally available, neighbor and I have completed 2 frame off restorations of classic American cars. Are there any members in the Phoenix area that I could buy a beer for and meet to talk about and touch a Defender? Thanks for any feedback!

Search the builds section to check out some 110 refreshes/rebuilds and see if you've got the patience

$30k buys you in UK or row territory in a 110 at the higher end. It won't be a budget for a refit... But with all that patina you can buy an elite AC kit for $3200!

Check out the UK engines rolling in, see what you like and if they're underpowered for what you used them for. If you're not stuck on the 5 door the exmod trucks are real head turners and some have been refit to a very utilitarian spec by the military.

Glw your search
