New to Defender

Hi , all

Coming from a  Kawasaki Teryx 4 LE  soft Cab which was very noisy and dusty but you have to start somewhere. The thing was built like a tank and i had 11,000  klm all dirt road riding on it  with zero issues.  I am a BRP fan with 3 snowmobiles and they are awesome so I figured it’s time to switch rides and try the same brand and the Defender looked awesome. Was thinking of the Ranger Crew with Ride Command but just couldn’t do it ! LOL 

cheers TB

Welcome to the forum.

I'm relatively new to the Defender as well.  Bought an xmr in March of 2019.  

This thing is unbelievable. I recently had it in knee deep mud and waist deep water and it just won't quit.  It was soupy mud and my group had to go around it.  I went straight through the middle. The only drawback I've found so far is the I'm the one pulling everyone else out of trouble.  In fact, the last one I pulled out was the Kawi Teryx a seater.  I agree, the Teryx is a great bike, just too low for the terrain we travel.

Enjoy it and keep us updated.

Bought my 2018 hd10 max last October... just rolled 2200 miles and nock on wood worst issue was losing a center cap which my dealer gave me for free anyways ... great machine I read u asking questions about a few small issues no worries... I haven't noticed a rattle noise/vibration from the front of mine but I'm sure its minor and a silly problem ... once u figure that out for ur self ull be 7th heaven with that bike ... a day of riding it hadn't passed that it dosent impress me or everyone around me

New to the Defender (Max) team myself.  Have a camp a mile off road on a mountain.  Father in law's Polaris 900 was a learning experience as to what not to buy.  Only one month into ownership, but, very pleased.  Need a heater and doors, trying to figure out what is best for me.  An amazing machine.  50 years ago my father was driving me around in a M37 Military, now I'm driving him around in a Defender.  He can't wait to go and has a great time.

Welcome Jbird! I’m looking into the heater and doors also. With the amount of heat that comes in with a rear window on I’m thinking must just need doors

When I bought my 2019 Defender XT Cab HD10, I checked into the locking front axle, it is available on the Defender XMR, so it is available from BRP but pricey. I had mine out for some bird hunting and was impressed with the deep holes it went through so far no winching at all. I avoided the longer muskeg stretches where the weight of the machine would result in a stuck job. I posted my build in the build section. FYI🙂
