Went off-roading with the club on Sunday, at Zevenwacht Wine Estate, just outside Cape Town

Ok, this will be a BORING picture. But then I have only had it for two days.
I was trying to decide between the Discovery 5 and the new Defender. While I was looking for used I could not find a Defender at a reasonable price or with the options I wanted, plus after looking at several they are impressive and I was looking at a P400 but the electronics in that does concern me.
So I ended us with the Discovery. 2018 HSE Lux with the cold weather package, full size spare and the Capability plus package (rear locker!), also a 5 year 150K warranty (yes that is correct).
Plans: New tires,possibly new wheels in dark grey or black (still looking at this). And I need a trailer hitch. At the end of July heading to Colorado/ Wyoming so we will see how it does.

Got the new Compomotive 18" wheels and 255/70-18 tires on my 2017 D5 HSE Td6 (no problem with the brakes...the wheels *juuuuust* fit), along with Lucky8 sliders and a front bash plate and some HI-yeller Baja Designs lights in the grille. Parked here at a pretty mellow trailhead but this thing now goes pretty much anywhere I want to go with it. Not doing the Rubicon Trail - but that's not what this is for - it's for being a Sherpa.

Details on the tent? Reminds me of the old factory option tent of similar configuration
Timber Ridge SUV Tent on Amazon.

It is a fairly large tent inside, 8 x 10 ft. Because the walls are nearly vertical, you can make use of each square foot. The Yakima EXO gear basket I have fully swings open and sits against the side of the tent, allowing full access to the inside. I have the cooler on the rack, so it's out of the way but still accessible. Our pantry box sits underneath it on the floor and we have a 31" x 28" table set up inside as well.

It is fully waterproof, it rained all night and the inside stayed dry. There was only one spot where the water ran off the rear and down the bumper into the tent. I had to adjust the lower apron to cover the bumper fully, and easy fix.

I had the rear wheels on leveling ramps, but the tent still covered the tailgate. It was tight, as you can see from the pictures, but seemed fine.

All in all, a good purchase for our use. Very reasonably price for what it provides. I searched for a while before deciding on this one. I had tried another but had to return it because it was too small for us.

Good to know those fit, I need to reach out to Lucky8 about these. I assume you have air suspension any issue on access height?

550 horsepower garbage stuck in the middle of playa,
It took 500 ft of tow strap to get it out,
rain came shortly after, making him the luckiest owner, otherwise it would of been stuck there for weeks till dry season.

Air suspension, no rubbing at any height. No lift rods. The only slight issue is shoehorning the fully inflated full-size spare in the spare well under the back...took some doing.

Yeah that playa would have been fun in maybe late September / early October on those Pirellis. Unfortunately it wouldn't have mattered what kind of tires he was on in those conditions.
