1991 6x6 Double Cab Land Rover Perentie, RHD, 50k miles, $94,900

If you’re searching for uniqueness, a conversation-starter, or the ultimate expedition platform/hunting rig, here it is. The first Perentie Double Cab in the US, Chassis No SALLDMAZ1FY801382 ARN 200258. One of 26 produced by JRA Limited for the Australian Army, manufactured and assembled in Moorebank, New South Wales. Entered service in 01/92, and was purchased at auction by KLR in June 2016. While awaiting eligibility to import, KLR performed an extensive rehab to bring her “up to speed” for highway travels here in the US. Initial voyage was from port in Savannah to North Dakota, 3 days without issue. Current odometer shows 7550 km (swapped at 71511), estimating 80k km traveled since new on chassis and original motor. Currently used as daily driver, so miles will gradually increase.

Background info:
The Perentie 4×4 and 6×6 are Australian-designed and built derivatives of the Land Rover 110. The 6×6 is designed to carry two tons or more across country and has its own unique chassis. Front suspension is by live axle and coil-springs. The rear bogie employs two leaf springs and a load-sharing rocker on each side. This rocker is cranked, and the leaf springs on each side overlap, so that the springs can be longer and the rear axles can be closer together than would otherwise be possible. The rear section is fabricated of square and rectangular section steel tube and the chassis is galvanized. It shares the 4-speed LT95A transmission and Isuzu 4BD1 3.9L 4-cylinder diesel engine with the 4WD version, but in this case the engine is turbo-charged. Drive to the third axle is by a separate propeller shaft taking power from the transfer-case PTO. This PTO takes drive from a gear on the transfer case intermediate shaft and rotates at the same speed as the front (1st) and rear (2nd) prop'-shafts regardless of whether hi-range or lo-range is selected. The 3rd prop'-shaft passes over the second axle and is jointed, incorporating a c.v. joint, where it does so. In this way extreme articulation of the two rear axles is possible. Prototypes and early models, some of which escaped into civilian hands, used a normal Land Rover 110 cab and front axle with the standard track of 1500mm against the rear's 1700mm. Production models use a wider, taller cab, and a 1700mm front track which matches the rear. The army specified that the 6x6*had to have a wider and taller body and cab. The windscreen is reminiscent of a Santana or Iveco Land Rover licensed derivative, but offers*a less restricted view. As always the Defender ladder chassis arrangement allows fitting of just about anything behind the cab - from crew transporter to special forces rapid deployment equipment.


Mechanically better than new in many ways:
Galvanized chassis
Galvanized one-piece bulkhead
Galvanized cab/floor with exception of standard doors
Salisbury rear axles, re-enforced front axle
Disc brakes with dual master cylinder
Power steering
Isuzu 4BD1 3.9L 4-cylinder turbo diesel engine
4 speed LT95A gearbox

KLR upgrades:
A/C compressor, new
A/C bracket, belt, secondhand twin pulley and tensioner
Recovered seats
Door locks
Keyed ignition
Custom sidebars/rock-sliders
Upgraded Garrett turbo
Heavy duty clutch kit
Diff ratio change to 3.54
Overhaul gearbox – new bearings throughout
Replaced transfer case high range gear set
New Wolf HD wheels, 255/85/R16 BFG T/A KM2 x7
Maxi-Drive drive flanges
Radiator flushed, treated, new thermostat

Logbook review:
Replace front axle assembly – 62615 4/01
Replace rear springs – 66259 8/05
Replace steering box – 69865 12/10
Replace all prop shafts – 73438 5/13
Changed speedo head -- 73438 5/13
Final minor inspection – 1221 3/14
Sold AFM/Grays Online Auction – 6/16
Imported/titled in ND – 4/17


In current configuration, cruises 70 mph on the highway with 2-finger steering. No wobbles, shimmy, unsteadiness with short topping distances. The Garrett turbo makes for easy navigation of congested roads with added acceleration. Interior is MOD with several standard additions such as molded plastic headliner, and recovered seats. All gauges, lights, switches, hand-throttle are operable. The roof hatch, or cupola, has a slight leak, well documented in the log-book. New owner can choose to reseal or replace with glass; currently a non-issue while stored indoors.


Currently located in North Dakota
Price includes clear ND Title

Sadly, most folks will never see one of these- having only built 26 of them! But if you do, you will see what Land Rover should have done to the Defender in many ways!!
-The widened B pillar actually lets one sit comfortably without being shoved against the B pillar.
-The widened body centers the driver on the steering wheel!! Not to mention the extra 4" on each side to fit inside the cab without pushing against the outside of the vehicle.
-The extra width is well hidden, but look between the front grille and the front wing. This width is further hidden by the custom bonnet and cab.
-The dash is much more functional- switchgear, and even a glove box!
-Above the dash, at the ceiling level, is a great built in recessed area for electronics, switches, etc.
-The headliner is custom and I believe it is made out of fiberglass so as to never sag or need refurbished.
-Turbo Izusu engine
-Greatly reinforced and galvanized frame
-etc, etc...

The list is near endless, but at a build cost of $275k/ea, what would you expect?

Great job on the refurb bits, and GLWS!!

Open to trade offers if anyone is looking for a new adventure. She's ready for another cross country excursion. I've responded to all questions, only reason I'm selling is to make room for another 6x6 DC on its way.

JW, Very cool!

Hadn't seen this before. If I didn't have so many projects right now...

This has so many possibilities and so unique.

GLWS, I'm sure someone could start a trend with one of these 6x6s

Thanks for giving me the heads-up.

Joe

The Air Defence variant was designed to accept the Rapier missile system. A pull-out storage bin was fitted beneath the tray for various ancillary equipment, primarily masts and other items associated with camo netting. No other variants were equipped with this bin. Many have retrofitted a storage bin in the space for camper conversions or to move the COG back with engine swaps, etc. Others have installed fresh water tanks and long-range fuel cells.
Here's a picture with tray installed.
