British Army Designation; Truck Light Utility TUL HS 4X4 Land Rover GS Soft Top 2.5 Litre Turbo DSL. Built to British Army Specification by Land Rover based on the Defender 90, and accepted for service in 1996, the specifications and history of the Wolf are as follows The Wolf was tested, rejected, upgraded and tested again before the MoD was satisfied. It is far stronger and more reliable than the Land Rover Defender on which it was based. When the Wolf was designed the engine in the civilian Defenders was the Td5. Land Rover preferred the 300Tdi for the Wolf because the electronics in the Td5 were more complex to manage in the field. The 300Tdi on a Wolf uses a slightly different design of timing cover compared to the civilian version with a reinforced rear axle as during extremely rigorous military testing the original Salisbury axles kept breaking, the axle was redesigned using stronger internals, hubs and outer casing, making one of the strongest land rover axles ever mad Everywhere else where Land Rover tried to mount the spare wheel caused the mountings to break free and it was too heavy for the bonnet. There are 3 versions of mounting, soft top, hard top and quick release, although in this case the wheel is bonnet mounted The chassis is considerably different in design to the standard Defender chassis even though it looks similar. The side walls are standard, most of the rest is bespoke. The additional rear load bed mounting was to take increased weights as the standard chassis kept punching big dents in the rear floor. Chassis made after the production run (service chassis) are slightly different, later ones have a triangular reinforcement behind the front outriggers, none of them have the front round tube going through the main chassis walls as it is more costly to tool and produce although it is stronger. The chassis wasn’t galvanised due to the additional cost it would add. There were also unfounded Health and Safety concerns about the gases involved in welding a galvanised chassis, due to the fact that supplying correct respiratory protection to welders would negate this problem. The chassis on all Wolfs was sprayed internally with Dinitrol rust proofing. WMIKs made from the factory had two outriggers in the middle of the chassis instead of just one on a standard Wolf chassis. The second outrigger is to take the extra load of the gun mounting. Many WMIKs were converted from Wolfs and kept one outrigger.
A desirable Wolf Defender 90 TD soft-top, uprated with side steps,front winch, rear view camera, and phone kit, which was released by the Army in 2015 , UK registered and has had one previous owner since then. The 300Tdi engine has rebuild plates dating to 2005, the speedo is in Kms and the vehicle has covered the equivalent of only 61079 miles since built
Excellent condition with front winch, rear view camera, side steps, the original WD hood is in excellent condition, the bonnet is fitted with tools and spare wheel.
Well equipped in very good condition, front seats augmented by rear seats on either side of rear platform.
300 TDi diesel with army rebuilt engine, the Defender Wold is in extremely well maintained vehicle.
