Landrover Defender 90. 2012 XS Puma 2.2 overland special. Move to America forces sale. £37,000. 12 Moths MOT.

One owner, very low miles, overland special. I bought the 90 XS new from Southampton LR in 2012. It came with the usual XS extras, ABS, immobiliser, heated seats, heated front screen, electric windows, A/C and traction control 6 speed gearbox etc. Waxoyled from new, ZERO rust. All doors, bulkhead and under cappings are rust proofed with cavity wax every summer and ACF50 is used on everything!

Since owning the Landrover it has developed, over time and with experience into an extremely capable and comfortable overland vehicle, evolving into one of the most comprehensive 90s available. Not just a Roof Top tent and sliding rear drawer then classing it as an Overlander! I never dreamt of selling the vehicle so spared no time or money on its evolution. The wife and I plus our dog have travelled comprehensively around Europe and North Africa, without issue of either comfort, reliability or want.

But I have been given a fantastic opportunity to work in North America, but a Defender model of this age isnt allowed into the US. Leaving me no option but to sell my pride and joy. Where do I start?.......

At the forefront of my mind before any modifications was: it has to be efficient and intuitive to use and it must look right. Only the best quality components from recognised manufacturers have been used. By using available space wisely and solar, the 90 is capable of 4-5 days of full autonomy before a resupply is needed. I do not have any pictures of the build/development of the vehicle, never expecting to sell it I didnt think there was need! The accompanying pictures show the vehicle being used for real.

If you arent familiar with Landrover Defender esp Pumas some of the following will make little sense! Either give me a call or have a look online, defender2.net is a great forum where I gained lots of my ideas.

Engine. Puma 2.2 tdci. LR service history while under warranty, by me since. LR recall to replace oil pump completed in 2015. Oils changed every 6k miles, receipts of all oils etc. Improvements: Alisport intercooler and silicone hoses. BAS Auto 170bhp remap inc BAS RRC Remote Remap and Diagnostic tool. Full stainless exhaust. RAI to airbox hose improved to 80mm silicone piping and 100% water tight. Magnetic sump plug240 volt engine pre-warmer. PRO-VENT 200 oil catch tank.

Transmission. 6 speed. New AP clutch in July 2017 (LR clutch had a known issue). Ashcroft Transmission improved MT82 output shaft. Syncho-gearboxes slick shift. Selector housing bushes as per LR recall. Ashcroft HD drive flanges on both axles. These improvements have transformed the drive, with near zero gearbox slack and a smooth precise gear change. Magnetic gearbox, transfer box, front and rear diff filler and drain plugs.

Suspension. Old Man Emu +2 springs, standard duty front extra heavy rear. +2 OME Nitrocharger shock absorbers. Tubular front turrets. Cranked rear trailing arms. Extended Goodridge stainless brake hoses. Cor4 front and rear diff guards. Lowered anti roll bar mounting to compensate for the lift. SUMOBAR HD steering bar and drag link including greaseable HD track rod ends. Gwyn Lewis HD wide angle greaseable and adjustable A frame ball joint. Devon4x4 double Cardan front prop shaft. OME steering damper. ALL breathers extended to the RAI. ALL rubber bushes replaced in July 2017 with Genuine LR items. 30mm hub-centric wheel spacers.

Wheels and Tyres. Genuine LR 16inch Boost Alloys, all in good condition with no corrosion. Tyres, BF Goodridge MUD Terrain KM2s 285/75, they make the vehicle very capable in all conditions. 80% tread remaining. To balance the wheels, often a problem with tyres this size Magnum Plus tyre balancing beads are used, small silicone beads inside the tyre, used on HGVs. There is no wheel shake/vibration at all, plus if the tyre loses a chuck of rubber off road they do not need re balancing as the beads are dynamic.

Electrics. Twin optima batteries under passengers seat mounted to a Deven4x4 twin battery tray: one Red top (vehicle Bat), one Yellow Top (Leisure Bat). National Luna intelligent split charge system with LED status panel mounted on Cubby box. 240 volt hook up to CTEK battery charger with selectable vehicle or leisure battery charging. Victron energy solar control to charge leisure battery via a flexible 120watt solar panel stored under the roof top tent. All additional electrics are fused or use a circuit breaker. 1000watt 240-volt inverter mounted under cubby box supplying to two 3 pin sockets by rear door.

Tent: Roof tent: Tuff-Trek Model TT-02 (MK.2). It is 2x1.4 metres giving almost a queen size bed, the mattress is 80mm thick. ALWAYS fully dried/aired after any trip/camp. Improvements: Under the mattress is an anti-condensation mat as used on yachts. 12 Volt DC is supplied to the tent via a military grade power socket umbilical cord into the vehicle roof providing USB charging, 12v sockets, LED lighting. A flexible 60mm pipe connects via quick release coupling to the base of the roof tent and Eberspacher heater providing hot air to the tent and/or the annex below. Ladder mountings improved to allow removal of the ladder when using the annex. Ladder fitted with quick fist clamps to allow easy storing and swift deployment of tent sprung poles and Tuff-Trek storm pole. Directly below the Roof tent is the large annex, known as the living room! Giving a large dry place to sit etc, heated air is also supplied here. An LED light in the underside of the tent provides lighting and a large zipped access panel allows access to the Front -Runner gull wing window. Living room is stored in a Front-Runner HD bag and stored on the roof rack. Tuff-Trek 2 metre 270degree fold out awning. During the winter months (Nov-Feb) the mattress is removed from the tent and stored in our home while the entire roof rack inc tent, awning and all attached fittings are removed and storage in a dry unit at my work, preventing any prolonged unnecessary exposure to wet weather. Currently the roof rack is off but will be refitted before the sale (only takes 20mins with 6 guys)

Included additional/overland equipment: Two folding camping chairs.. Coleman twin petrol stove with brand new regulator. Jormax Wind break, very expensive and never used. HD jump leads with Anderson plug. 10 metre airline. Bench Vice (record) with tow hitch mounting bracket

The Bad bits: There arent many as I have always corrected any issues ASAP. However as the Landrover has been used for overlanding there are a couple of minor dents and scratches to the paintwork, a dent to the rear top corner above the near side small window and a dent to the near side wing. Both totally cosmetic. One alloy is scratched.
