    And the D2 isn't big.

    I had no idea until 2 weeks ago.
    The 90/110/130 is Series dimensions inside.
    Looks like Ineos have addressed a major complaint about the old girls.
    Interesting Rick. When my D2 and D1 are side by side the D2 definitely has a wider stance.

    Funnily enough the MR Triton which is a narrow ute compared to Ranger and many others has a wider track than the 110 Defender.

    The 200kg roof rating on the Ineos is a lot more sensible than the 150kg on the Puma Defenders (Grenadier - lower, wider) but really 200kg on the roof isn't my cup of tea and the narrow track and tall Defender shouldn't be carrying 150kg on the roof at highway speeds. From memory LR drop that to 100kg approx offroad. The low slung Triton allows 80kg both on and off road which I think is a very sensible and usable weight limit. The D2's limit is too low to be very usable but as a taller vehicle I was happy to go with it.

    Cheers

    I used to wonder why Bowler, etc used the D2 running gear, aside from the D2 having better geometry (scrub radius)

    Anyway, back to Grenadier discussion!

    Loving the pics and thoughts Mike

    It sounds like you liked it.

    It looks really good in your photos and with what you're saying!

    I didn't know the measurements but I did think the track was wider. I was thinking the D1 & D2 body were the same width but the D2 wheels are definately set further out which I thought came from a longer axle. I think they really needed to widen them out.

    I only twigged when I read recently along the lines of
    "The wider track enabled the designers to put some curvature in the body panels and get away from the slab sided appearance of the D1"
    So I went searching to see how much wider was wider

    Ahhh, thats interesting, because despite having a couple of D1's and the D2, I had never noticed the difference in the panel shapes. I'd even wondered if the D2 doors would fit the D1 (thinking it would be cool to build a D2 3dr).

    Thatís Mrs Tombies 90.

    Itís not going anywhere. Ineos Grenadier, do you reckon it'll take off? it will get an easy life and spend a lot of time under cover in the workshop.

    The Ineos was to see for ourselves as a possible additional (daily) driver for her.
