    Wonder if a fridge will even fit back there in line with the truck. Looks short, I agree esp when considering how thick the seats may be.

    So by your reasoning even though they place 2nd to last and 4th to last they are good. Since it’s a comparison survey the industry has gotten better as a whole, which is good... so the new products will be better than that.. Got it... just trying to follow the lemons into lemonade train of...

    Totally correct no "classic" defender owner if worried about values going down, more the opposite really, will they get too expensive to drive. Anyway the collective opinion on the defender forums is one of JLR missed the boat on new defender... as a new Discover it would have been great, but...

    Anyone have a Alu-cab Icarus or X-visions-x mounted on a Defender 110

    Any ideas on when you will announce it? I'm really interested in this, a topper with a full FWC roof/bed but minimal else so i can still use the bed of the truck as a truck when needed.

    roof mounted solar panels - which ones to get?

    right now the panels will dictate the roof layout which is a full rack on a defender 110, so 4'x10' ish i don't link heavy loads on the roof, so no tent or other such stuff in the way. thats kinda what i was thinking 2x100w rigid panels, would be better than a single. they will be bolted in...

    roof mounted solar panels - which ones to get?

    I am currently running 2 100w cheapo semi flexible panels i had for my camp trailer on the roof of my truck. i am pretty sure they have been damaged due to being stepped on a few times...and the best they put out in full sun at about noon is 107 watts together when wired in parallel. so its time...
