What size tires are those? I didn't think they came with tires with aspect ratios that big.

32”s I think on 19” wheels for these trucks - both S models 4cyl
I’m probably going to swing by in the 90 tomorrow for a few more pictures and have a look underneath them. if they are still there. Both were sold and custom ordered.

more shots.. took it for a short drive as well
.... drives smaller than I thought, quicker too. The dash is excellent, I like the body color metal on the insides of the doors, its quick. looks much better in person than in pictures.

I'm also wondering about what it looks like in person. The Disco looks better in person than in photos. I'll drive one if I get the chance this summer.

I didn't get to drive one but like most of the dash myself. It actually is well done how they have the modern technology of the dash and touch screens but some of the older design pieces like the classic Defender flat and recessed dash.

I like that back storage and flat seat design and with the rubber/plastic covering a lot.

and meanwhile Ford is actually building a modern day Defender.

If they build it anything like their Raptor it will be an animal for sure.
No pickup bed, no manual transmission, not long enough to sleep in, LR is big time missing the boat in my opinion. At least you won't spill your latte if you curb a wheel in the Starbucks drivethru. :rolleyes:

Maine's only LR dealership is listing five of the new ofenders...one "S" base model is listed at just a hair under $62k while the "SE" and "First Editions" are $72-74K...yikes

There isn't a better front suspension for an off-roader than a McPherson strut. Land Rover so perfected it in a Freelander and L322...

Website is showing 5 in stock with prices listed above. If it wasn't 2hrs South I'd take a closer look.
they dont have any in stock. Maybe thats just what theyve been allocated?. dealer emailed me to say they had one there last week if i wanted to come check it out but it was leaving on the 6th.

(y), nice. My wife will be ready for a trade-in towards the end of the year, going to take a serious look at the new Bronco.

I agree on the bronco... Never bought a ford product before but it looks worthy of serious consideration.
