Thinking of taking the plunge...
Morning all (here in Denver, CO).
After many years of admiring Defenders from afar - I'm seriously considering jumping into Defender ownership.
I've owned newer model Land Rovers (2x Discoverys and 1x Range Rover Sport) and currently my RR Sport and '98 Wrangler share DD duties. I'm looking for a vehicle that could do double duty as a DD and trail vehicle. Going to need to get something bigger than the Wrangler and more off-road capable than the RR Sport - twin boys + camping gear + Wrangler don't really work. I do all my own wrenching on the Wrangler - the thought of a vehicle that requires maintenance, upkeep, and upgrading doesn't bother me.
Here's the problem - I've never actually driven a Defender. Years ago I drove a Series IIa for a bit before deciding that I wanted the Wrangler instead (Series was too cramped).
So here's my plea... Anyone in the Denver area with a Defender willing to help a guy out with a quick run through on their truck? I'm going to be looking at 110s - so that would be ideal but I know how rare they are around town.
I know I'm asking a lot - but I figure it doesn't hurt to throw it out there.
