    @Caleb O Oh man, those will go anywhere. And if you find somewhere they can't go you can do a 3 point turn in your average hall way.

    Man, no joke. We took it everywhere it would go, and some places it wouldn't. Then took it back, fixed it, and went at it again.

    I'm not a big expert on unimogs so I can't really say if that's unique or not. Never did catch anyone around so I could bother them for a chat and/or tour. That would have been cool.

    @wilas101 yeah, there’s a lot of custom shops and add ons. That modular nature is pretty cool for such a unique platform.

    We were partial sponsors on it for some Baja race. But, being that it's a Rover, it broke about halfway through the race.

    @Zeek, 1970-71 I drove one of those Mules in the USMC, hauled 81mm mortars, ammo, equipment, C-rations, etc.

    Ha! Peter Voler with Vermont Overland wheels a similar Rover and it’s pretty Frankenstein at this point. There’s a cool video of it I’ll post here.

    ....yes I was going to say most people question what's up when they see a Rover moving under it's own power at all.... ;) :D

    i'd love one of those for exploring here. I'd tow it behind the Tracker and put a tidy tank on it full of spare fuel.

    Was on a Search with the sweet D90 Defender a couple weekends ago. Don't see these too often in the states.

    We’re at the dealership getting the fluids changed on the FJ crusier and saw this guy in the lobby. The wife said no.
