Depends on your distance to lanes really and how comfortable you wanna be
If you ok with bumpy noisy and cold(er) vehicle but very good offroad defender is the one to have however if you have to drive 150 miles round trip to get to lanes and back home Discovery 2 is not too bad, though both have their ups and downs
Discovery 3 is a complete different machine which is very comfy but then again is it as good offroad as a defender??? Most likely no...
I.e if lived by Salisbury plains i wouldn't get anything but a defender but as i need to drive like 50 miles ro the nearest lane (and back another 50 for that matter) i had gone for D2s and D3s

Well i had driven many Jeep CJ5/7s when i was young when i didn't know what getting tired meant and then moved onto Jeep TJs, finally on LRs....

I think D1 is a good entry level greenlaner, you can pick up some part modified D1’s for not a lot of money.

Good mix of general performance and a degree of comfort, also relatively easy to fix or mod as you get more experienced.

This is mine....
