WRITTEN-OFF DEFENDER REBUILT

LRO January 2019 cover

On this month’s cover we feature the Defender TDCi that’s been heroically transformed from insurance write-off to fresh-faced family 4x4. History buff James Taylor also reveals the story behind a beautiful Series IIA forward control fire engine built on a short-wheelbase (yes, 88in!) chassis. Dinky, brilliant and its backstory makes a great read.

Team LRO gets plastered too, as we chuck our Land Rovers into the mud and compare 14 very different methods for getting them free. Did you know you can make a winch out of two branches? It works! Sort of.
