Description

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 owner since being de-mobbed in 2015, and has covered a genuine 112,500km (70,300 miles).

Features include:

  • 300 TDi Diesel Engine
  • R380 Gearbox
  • 24v electrics
  • Uprated chassis
  • Side mounted spare wheel
  • PVC soft top
  • Roll bar
  • 7.50 x 16 Goodyear G90 radial tyres
  • Rear Nato hitch and tow socket
  • Steering guard
  • Denim Twill front seats (2)
  • Rear bench seats
  • Bonnet mounted pioneer kit
  • Excellent chassis and bulkhead

So if you are looking for an unusual Land Rover to show, or just one to play – This might fit the bill.
