Lugnut, did the trailer have brakes?!
Lots of folks on here seem to think the 4L is just too powerful, maybe the 2.5 would be a better and cheaper bet!
Actually it's the same - the Defender is also 93".
I would much rather tow with a longer wheelbase - Defender 110 is much better than the 90.
Land Rovers are rated to 3500kg so a much higher safety limit.
If you are only towing a ton I wouldn't worry.
Remember they are on leaf springs - Land Rover ditched them in 1983. They don't do much for roadholding or ride comfort. Also only part time 4x4 - in RWD most of the time.
