I'm not a fan either, but broadrun's truck has it. Column shift is still my favorite in a truck but you have to get a bench seat... or you could. Mine has a console shifter which is not great. However, I can hit the shifter to the left to turn off cylinder deactivation and get FULL VOLUME.

It doesn't take long to get used to it and where JHammy's console shifter sits is a full storage bin in my truck so I think it's a decent trade off. I've had one moment of stupidity with it in 5 years so not too bad but the new software update will auto-park when you open the driver's door. So no rolling and looking down with the door open to line up any longer but some of us can lean out the window to see the lines so there's that.

Interesting, I was going to joke about ‘military-spec’ referring to the paint colour, but that looks a serious piece of kit. Wonder how much weight the equipment adds?

I guess with seemingly no chance of a military spec Defender (Pick-Up version canned apparently), there is a niche to fill. Perhaps INEOS are targeting that market with their proposed LR replacement......

Yes - it is a serious 'military spec'. The MoD currently uses the base model Rangers at a lot of sites, so there is already a familiarity with this vehicle. Definitely seems to be targeted at the MoD's procurement specialists.

With modern materials, it can't be as heavy as a WOLF I would imagine?

"All the weight" is probably close to accurate!

Looks awesome though. I like it. But then again I like Defenders.

I’m sure if they marketed a ‘non military’ version that looked identical they’d sell a shed load! The local supermarket mother and child bays would be full of them......
