R168 OUS – 1997 Land Rover Defender 90 WOLF Soft Top Getting increasingly hard to find in unspoiled condition, this 1997 example is in excellent condition throughout. Original MOD registration JZ 85 AA and designated TUL (Truck Utility Light) by the MOD and XD (Extra Heavy Duty) by Land Rover. The WOLF Land Rover was tested and rejected, then upgraded and tested again by the British Military before being accepted, and is therefore much stronger and more reliable than the Defender model it is based on. Engine 300Tdi The 300Tdi on a Wolf uses a slightly different design of timing cover compared to the civilian version. Reinforced rear axle The testing was extremely rigorous and Salisbury axles kept breaking, the axle was redesigned using stronger internals, hubs and outer casing, making one of the strongest land rover axles ever made. Chassis The chassis is considerably different in design to the standard Defender chassis even though it looks similar. The side walls are standard, most of the rest is bespoke. The additional rear load bed mounting was to take increased weights as the standard chassis kept punching big dents in the rear floor. This particular example has had one private

The Range Rover had been launched to an unsuspecting public in June of the previous year – at a price of £1,998 including car tax. By all accounts, demand was extremely high, and obtaining one of these new 4 wheel drive vehicles, was as difficult as buying an E Type Jaguar a decade earlier.
