From Land Rover to Jeep, and never looking back!

Recommended Posts


After more or less continuous Land Rover ownership since 1996 (Discovery 2 300tdi) and finishing with a Range Rover Westminster tdV8, becoming increasingly wary of their reliability and the reliance on computers to keep you going on and off road, in July I finally did something I now realise I should have done years ago and bought a Jeep!  It had to be an ex-demo as trying to get a diesel unlimited in anything other treefrog green seemed impossible.  I thought I’d wait to introduce myself until it had been “christened” off road and had a few road miles on the clock.


What an incredible truck! It’s the most sure-footed 4x4 I’ve ever driven off road, with a real sense of capability which probably comes with not having 80+ computers between you and the road (see the new LR Defender).  On road, I’m getting better fuel economy (35+ mpg) on the daily commute than I ever achieved in any of my LRs.


Looking forward to meeting some of you in Kielder in December on the safari.

Hi Jules and welcome to the club.

There are a lot of us on here who have seen the light, me included as I've owned 109's and 3.5 v8 RR

Welcome to the club! Love the Granite colour.


Yeah with the demise of no Defender production —  and now the eventual replacement — we are seeing more like yourself  “take the leap to Jeep”

Hope to meet up at Kielder!
