These are mine, and what goes where is all dependant on mood really.
The little series 1 has just been sold (well, we've taken a deposit on it and expect it will be collected in a weeks time).....it's a shame but we can't justify all our toys Crying or Very sad

Then there is this S2 which is getting a motor rebuild at the moment and when it's had a cosmetic makeover as well should be a great little fun machine

This is likely to become out touring wagon in a couple of years time, although being a V8 auto we are still undecided.

and the daily hack is this RRC, and that thing behind is the reason for selling the S1, so while it's bawling it's also Laughing

I like the Idea of a automatic Defender! Ive not seen many in the UK apart from the conversions. If they did a Defender 110 with a auto box that would be quite apealing.
Not to sure I like the Auto V8 paint colour, abit bright for me.

Our first 'big trip' will be to Australia for about 6 months. Originally we'd thought we'd go in our 100" challenge motor so we could do a couple of comps while we are there (already done the Outback Challenge at Broken Hill in 2005 and 2008). We were OK in that storage-wise for camping gear etc for the week or so required for the OBC, but we realised that wasn't going to be adequate for longer touring. We initially thought of hiring an off-road camping trailer and doing it posh! However, looking at costs and what we'd need to do to the challenge truck, we had a re-think.

Only in the planning stages at the mo, but we've decided instead to use my Defender 90.



Currently it is a 3.9 V8 auto, running LPG as its my daily drive. As LPG is getting more expensive and less convenient to get hold off here, I'd been mulling over swopping to diesel anyway, but for Oz the longer distances between fuel stops we would be pushing the boundaries for fuel storage and load space with the V8.

So we've just bought a late TD5 engine off fleabay to replace the V8, which will serve me well for commutes in the UK, but also be more practical in Oz and for any other overland trips in the future. We'll also convert to a new electronic version of the ZF auto, using Compushift wizardry to set it up as good as poss for ease of gear changes and fuel economy. I know some people don't like the idea of lots of electrickery when overlanding, but the other half is very comfortable with that sort of thing, so we are fine with it.

For accommodation we've decided to go with a roof tent, and after looking at a lot of different ones at a very, very wet Billing this year, we've decided on the Howling Moon 1.4 tourer Star Gazer, with annexe. Rather than a roof rack, we've decided to go for an expedition cage for the additional safety, probably the P&P one. The tent will fit on the back of the cage nicely, with space for a bit of storage over the front part.

We'll also sort various upgrades with the suspension, tyres, and diffs etc, plus a winch and extra fuel diesel tanks etc.

Then there is all the inside to sort, with storage, water, fridge, etc.

Lots of planning and work still to do, but aiming to go in February 2013! Or 2014 if it all takes too long to sort and save up the pennies!

Cheers,
Pam

Just brought a LWB Frontera for overlanding needs a bit of work but the equivalent Discovery would have cost me 3 or 4 times the money and still have a lot of rot and bodged bits.

The Frontera has only had 2 owners from new and has never been offroaded the last owner has had it for over 4 years and only decided to sell it do to rising fuel costs he's just brought a Rover 45 to ferry the grand kids around (well good luck with that).

So I'm now on the look out for a roof rack, +2" suspension lift, a set of decent A/T's, some under body protection, seat cover's and recovery points among other bits and pieces.

Pictures to follow after I have tidied it up a bit.

Just to "rub it in" Jas, I saw a beautiful black Terracan today in Tilford - it had at least 3" of lift and what looked like 31" BFG MTs, full length rack,rock sliders, winch, the works! On a Belgian plate, didn't get chance of picture as I was driving at the time and nowhere to stop. A lovely sight though!

I am really starting to hanker after one of them now......(don't tell the missus!)



Edit; It looked VERY much like this one except in black;

affraid If you need a solid truck, good on reliability, comfort, towing ability, fuel econemy and a proven, proper 4wd system then I would say go for it.

Off Road Pro's: Terracans have a phenomenal level of Traction and a massive 2.9 torque range to boot. Off Road No, No's: They have minimal axle articulation and due to being LWB have poor approach and departure angles.

Look at it this way, if you are planning on crossing large open or enclose area of terrain like Salisbury Plain then its Perfect. If you want to go to pay and play sites and drive through bogs you would be better getting a SWB Terrano or LandCruiser IMO.

Im an ex-Terracan owner, ex-Land Rover, ex-Land Cruiser, ex-Patrol and host of pickups. By Far, the best out of them all mate. And the best bit they are cheap as chips. I hope you buy one mate! thumbsup

I recognise that camp site !!

I have also been looking at a week or two in the Spanish mountains and desert, taking a certain route from Andorra into Spain and spending a few days in the Elba (excuse spelling) valley before driving home.

Make sure the rack will move with the vehicle or this happens. I didn't think my short rack was too solid.
