    One time I was driving my 101 and a current ADF member approached me asking me if he could take some pictures. We got talking and I mentioned that I also had a Perentie. I asked him how the new G wagon was - he said that “most” people preferred the Perentie over the G, because when anything went wrong with the G you were stranded, but in a Perentie you could patch it yourself until you got back to base.

    The big question ( that we probably already know the answer to) is, will the next ‘Defender’ be taken up by any military? And if not, why call it Defender?

    ...my ‘Defenders’ are really only defending my front lawn from bogans doing burnouts in the street, my bush work requirements and my lifestyle choice of having bush capable vehicles for civilian adventures with a fridge full of gourmet food!
