1989 Land Rover Defender 130

RIFLE NOT INCLUDED: For display only, please do not flag.

Project Bronson started life as a humble 110 before being stretched 20" to its current 130" wheel base. This truck was built as a one-off prototype by a defense contractor to showcase their proprietary weapon system but was eventually removed from active duty. Method SV was given the opportunity to purchase the truck and bring it back to operational status.
