Looks bloody fantastic!! What do they call the package/spec/trim?? Is it all available from the factory, or did you hafta do some picking and choosing and get other mobs involved??

Thanks mate,
It's all factory options, thats one thing I liked about the landies, there's no "trim/model variants" as such you just pick wich body shape you want and keep specing it up till you run out of money haha
So you get the cool stuff like traction control and abs etc even on the cheapies

Looks very nice and the suspension should get you a long way in the rough, but just to be in keeping with the historical look of Rover 4WD's you will have to replace those modern Torx head screws in the hinges and doors with Allen head screws.Ha Ha.

sway bars are out

took it for a quick run around the block and the body roll, although more present is not in anyway bad. Going out now for a quick play in some washouts to see how it goes

will post vids/pics afterwards :D

Got Mulgo seat rail extensions for chrissy among other things no more knees on the dash for me...

Looking around at roof racks at the moment, I like the alloy, flat deck ones from Hannibal/frontrunner/windcheater and also the "Tradesman" racks from ARB, but reckon I'm going to go with a steel Deluxe ARB 2200mm item dunno why, I just like it http://arb.com.au/products/roof-racks-a ... s/3800100/ Unless someone can talk me out of it and into something else? The roof is rated to 150kg and I don't intend on putting to much heavy gear up there, mainly just the bulky stuff, heaviest thing will be the spare for the camper trailer. Thoughts?


Looking at rear access ladders to, what's peoples suggestions? I like the Hannibal or Frontrunner items, IMO they seem to be the best looking of an ugly bunch.


The Defender never had front mudflaps and I damaged one of the rears. so the old rears are now going on the camper trailer and I ordered new front and rears and brackets from https://www.lrdirect.com/ the price for a full set of 4 with postage was $20 dearer than just the front ones at my local dealer.


And that's where I'm at now.... Hope everyone has a safe and enjoyable chrissy. :D

So i haven't been able to log in for quite some time, kept getting a reauthentication page, anyway quite a bit has happened over the past 6 months

built a set of drawers for the rear, and fitted the MSA fridge drop slide from the old rig.
