    Defender's in Epic Icelandic Scenery

    https://youtu.be/s3VXM5NP2z8

    Just found this whilst watching a video on another forum, just dreaming of far away places. Too much time on my hands whilst my vehicle is off the road. Hopefully this hasn't been posted before, my apologies if it has.

    Don't worry Weeds - go see these guys when you get there. Snorri will get you rolling on a set of 42"s in a day or so - he does most of the Super Jeeps up there. He told me the rubber for each corner is roughly $1,500!

    You may or may not have to drive it into the container on its discs to get it back though .

    Have had a chat with a guy in Brisbane who drove around Iceland in his stock puma.....he did flood his engine on a water crossing.

    Ohhh - that guy sounds like a bit of a Muppet. Probably not prudent to trust his advice, or a Puma for that matter .

    Awesome video!

    Two things I noticed - no spare tyre and the rims had two air valves - internal beadlocks maybe?
