Glad to find this group!

I just took delivery of my 2020 Defender DPS - 6WD goodness!

Also got a pile of accessories and am experiencing the "interesting" install manuals. Once I get it all together I'll post some pics.

Ranch bumper + side protectors, VRX4500S winch, rock sliders, front skid plate, A-arm protectors, bed rails, rear bumper, cargo light, front flood lights, hardcoat windshield, sport roof, plow kit, seat heater... Lots of stuff to assemble.

It replaced a 4x2 Gator from about 2001, so big difference!

The seat heater is for my wife - it was the selling point for her! Realistically, most of its daily duty will be fetching mail and trash cans, but I'm planning on some forestry work deep in my ravines and woods with the occasional trail ride. I also have a 1986 FJ60 fully set up for rock crawling.

Future plans: Maybe a lift and bigger tires, looking for a way to disconnect one set of wheel in the rear when all that traction is not needed.

Anybody else have 6WD fever?

David

Thanks! Just spend all day today and most of yesterday putting on all my accessories. 

I'll post some soon.

Cheers,

David

Enjoy!  Those Gators are tough, but I’d say you’re in the big leagues now.  Did you get a Cab?  I got mine Sept of 2019... came over to Can-Am from a 2011 Polaris 800 Crew (yes, the one with the “IED” of an engine). Haven’t really looked back!  -Mark

Mark-

No cab, but I got the roof and windshield.

The old Gator was an open cab, manual dump bed 4x2 from about 2001 and was fine, but this is insanely good!

Great start!  That's what I started with adding to my Defender as well as a rear-view mirror for when skirting the highways on the way to the hunting lease!  :classic_biggrin:
