I'm looking to buy a Land Rover Defender from 1980-1989. Dose anyone here know the best place to find this item?? I "Googled" it, but it comes up short...
Don't.I like the 90, but the 110 might be best. I'm moving to Montana or Wyoming and need either model that will get me through most anything that the winter throws at me...Gas.
Nope - has nothing to do with handling - only has to do with where you sit when operating the vehicle...I understand the LHD or RHD all has to do with handling of the land rover. Since I'm going for the 1980-1989 what is the better handling one and what is the mor "Aggressive" handling in snow and mud???
Trying to figure your comparison of driving in the snow vs mud as it relates to the vehicle. A Rover in my opinion is best for both worlds.What is your experience with 4 wheel drive vehicles and driving in the snow in particular. What works well in the mud probably won't work well in the snow. "Aggressive" driving in the snow usually doesn't end well. But I'm from Florida so what do I know? Anyway, perhaps an LR4 or Toyota 4 Runner would suit your needs better than a 25 year old Defender with a shitty heater.
To get up the mountain to my cabin in North Carolina in the summer you pretty much need 4 wheel drive. In the winter when there is snow on the ground I use a different driving style to get up the mountain. When I am up in the mountains in the snow I am not driving aggressively mainly because I don't want to end up sliding off the road and down the side of the mountain. It is not the same driving style as I use when I am slogging through a mud hole slinging mud everywhere.Trying to figure your comparison of driving in the snow vs mud as it relates to the vehicle.

It's the tires and driver's skill that makes the difference.
