Great for collecting firewood and standing on to trim the hedge!

Christ, you're a brave man buying a landrover. I've known a lot of them used in anger, and whilst I can't argue they're effective, they were not reliable. Suzukis ruled.

I love them, but could never bring myself to actually buy one!

They're only unreliable if you don't look after them. Basic vehicles, especially older ones, so little to go wrong, but if you don't treat em right everything will.
Luckily I have a spare truck cab so can convert to a hillbilly pickup with minor spannering :D

Nah, not the way we were using them! These were very well looked after, and hammered regularly. To be fair, the most problems were the TD5s; Electrics, Every Bushing, Chassis rot at 3 years old, Leaking Swivels, but mainly the electrics, over and over again. Diffs and shafts didn't last long either.

We were normally the only ones not in a landrover, and normally the only ones without a breakdown. *normally*.

We'll ignore the time my axle ended up 3" to the east of where it should have been...
