I've off roaded a Discovery 3 and it's quite a machine there just sooo much stuff to help you out the engineers at lode lane are brilliant, best modern off roader I think...Yes I know the bowler nemesis is quicker but I'm talking production cars now,

Might not be adventure to drive like the old land rovers but if you want to go to place that a normal car can't go in comfort then this is the car for you,

The range rover is good but is heavier and not as advanced as the 3, i guess the 4's underpinning's are much the same

I still have my old 1945 World war 2 Ford jeep in my garage, had some great times with it in the 60's and 70's, Right now it is jacked up, and only entered for classic and vintage car rallies

My Vitara is quite a capable offroader. Its offroad ready out of the box. And it has more potential once modified. I had mine lifted by 6" and fitted 31" Mud tires. never failed to bring me home from the trails. :)

Always has to be Landrover for me if it is pure offroading. A SWB with good tyres.

It is the only one that looks good with dents and scrapes.

I have a Freelander at the moment, but it is just for the snow in Northumberland, never really taken it offroad.

These are supposed to be pretty good, I've seen a few with XUD conversions in them as well..

over our way the 3.3l patrols rule the hills. there is a crew of 4x4 men next to us, they only deal with the LR 90's etc. they getting the off-road scene going by setting up days to bring your own and try beat them. with all the hype of the land rovers i thought nothing could beat them, incorect james, nissan patrols all the way, eat them for dinner and tea. class watching the men getting beat at their own game ha!!!

ive had a freelander td4 took it offroading at sibbertoft leciester, and a cheeky drive through eastnor estate, was absolutely brilliant only major flaw was the ground clearance due to the independant suspension setup but a 2" lift and bigger tyres and its light weight will take it anywhere,
also had a g-wagen in the family , it was raw and basic but bloody good, proper manual diff locks never broke down

One that you can drive off road and you don't care about the damage?
Motoring journalists often say the Range rover is the best 'off-roader', but
would anyone in there right mind take their OWN £55+ vehicle off road with
all those deep carpets and leather???

Now a LR 90 with decent tyres :)

Sure they would,
Ive seen it happen many a time....and thats what they are built for,
Also land rover claim that the Discovery is the best off roader they do,

The thing is though... they are designed for off roading in thre sence that you wont exeed say 20 mph, if you want to drive like a hooligan then yes...other car are prefferable...anything with a Bowler badge would do it...
