25 November 2011


I've written pieces on my Discovery and Defender, but have neglected my Freelander.

Quite a few of my 4x4 exploits have been in my Freelander. It's a 2005 Td4 which has been modified with:
  • 2" suspension lift for extra ground clearance
  • Mantec sump-guard
  • DAP Sliderz rock guards
  • Reinforced front recovery points, and
  • Spare-wheel mounted work light.
The lift kit and recovery points were manufactured by Tornado Motorsports and fitted by Freelander Storm, both in Derbyshire.

People say that Freelanders are not 'proper' Land Rovers and are only suitable for driving to the supermarket: nonsense. I've taken mine around off road courses and shown up a few Defenders by not getting stuck when they've needed a tow...
