With the power steering and diesel power- It drives really well. handles well on tight turns and corners. It is an awesome truck! I am really sad to part ways with it.
This truck has been a frame off/up rebuild. Starting in 2012. the truck was completely taken down to the frame. This truck brings the old feel of the Series IIA Safari rig feel with a number of upgrades for comfort and performance.
Every item on this truck has been gone through very thoroughly. Since buying this vehicle I have upgraded and overhauled most of the vehicle to make it a reliable/dependable vehicle for every day driving as well as remote off highway travel.
Mechanically the truck has essentially been completely redone. I unfortunately cannot keep this truck (which was my dream Rover) - and need to sell it to help pay for my children's school.
