    If you were to buy a Defender, why wouldn't you specify the rear e-diff regardless of having seen the video or not?

    You or I would but the vast majority won't.

    They just wouldn't be interested or care.

    I can understand that attitude for probably most RR and RRS buyers and a lot of D4/D5 buyers but can't fathom why someone would buy a Defender without it unless the person doesn't have an appreciation of the benefit.

    I agree - but then how many people have put in ARB lockers in the front and rear of their D3/D4 - very few on here as most think the extra capability over standard TC is not worth it.

    There is another reason and that is cost.

    Not i don't mean the cost of the e locker but the cost of the car.

    The D5 HSE i bought was a MY19 stock car & the dealer wanted to get it sold.

    It was nearly $30k less than if i had ordered the same car in which would have been MY20 by the time it arrived.
    Cheers

    That is a good reason,but for those that are ordering a vehicle,what is $1K in the whole scheme of things?

    Bugga all,if the vehicle is going to be used off road.
