Pickups are hot right now, but perhaps no modern pickup can be hotter than a resto-modded Land Rover Defender 110 Pickup. RK Motors out of Charlotte, NC has taken one and made it more rugged, more refined, and more ready for those off-the-beaten path adventures. Under the hood is a reliable 3.-liter Isuzu turbo diesel that’s both torquey and built to last. Beefed up and amped up suspension components ensure surefootedness on the rough stuff, coupled with big 16-inch black powder-coated Alcoa wheels shod with Michelin all-terrain tires. A huge roll cage with equipment storage in the rack keeps your crap together, and the pillar-mounted snorkel allows for deep fording without any worry about paralyzing hydro-lock. The WARN winch on the front will get you and others out of trouble, while the fine diamond quilted leather interior, a leather-wrapped dash, Bluetooth-capable JVC CD/DVD player, and powerful Focal speakers remind you that you’re not beneath creature comforts. Top it all off with enough LED lights to brighten up any trail, fender and windshield cages, and a protective steel hood plate, and you have yourself a recipe for what RK calls the “ultimate overlander”. And the $89,900 asking price just seems like a bargain.
