    That's right, I forgot about that.

    The Mercedes ML was supposed to be a replacement for the G, but Mercedes decided not to discontinue the G in the end.

    What are Land Rover so worried about? They abandoned the Defender's market, nobody stole it from them.

    Re: Is this it?

    Changing brake calipers isn't exactly a small mod, easy to do yes, but not insignificant. I doubt that any manufacturer or insurance company for that matter would approve of that.

    A Defender was far more than just an over-lander.

    Surely it is not unreasonable to hold the New One to the same standards.

    Depends on the application if the Prado TX could do the job.

    Jeepman. Perhaps I'm a little slow this morning, but you already have 16" rims?

    I have these. Not my vehicle, just to show the rims.

    The New Defender is built for this, so other than the price, it makes perfect sense.
