    Guys, genuinely informative and well written. A lot of time and effort invested and it is certainly appreciated.

    As I find myself awaiting the delivery of my new 76 wagon after 20 years of having (three) Land Rover Defenders, your articles have been very apt as I look to my upcoming build.

      Hi Mike,

      Really appreciate the feedback mate. There is definitely a bit of time involved but we really felt we needed to share what we have learnt along the way. It has been a fun experience and great to hear when it has been useful to someone else. Congratulations on making the big move! The South African side of my family are Defender crazy. I believe one of them wears Land Rover underpants 🙂 . Good luck with the build and please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions on anything.

      If you are planning on doing a thorough build with some similarities to ours, I would highly recommend looking into a GVM upgrade when it comes to your suspension setup. The payload disappears quickly in the 76 which is the one disadvantage over the 79 and Troopy.
