SOLD Defender 110 TD5 CSW Black Edition "Bespoke - Expedition Preppared"
This amazing Defender 110 "Black edition" was our first Magazine feature with Land Rover Monthly and featured on the fron cover!
A very bespoke customer driven expedition project, which featured lots of bespoke equipment. A first in our industry for Mile Marker Front and Rear hydraulic winches driven by a PTO hydraulic pump fed by it own BESPOKE stainless steel hydraulic tank mounted under the sill and protected by a bespoke bash guard.
Galvanized rocksliders with tree defender rails gave tremendouse side impact protection. Heavy duty front bumper designed for the Mile Marker front winch and an industry 1st, designed and fabricated bespoke by Douglass Motors a Rear Winch Bumper. This is THE ORIGINAL Defender rear winch bumper, which after this project was developed further, and became the OUTBACK Defender rear winch bumper, still produced by us today. With a few modern tweaks this not only gives the option of a rear winch but excellent rear impact protection, tough rear recovery points and a better option rear jacking point. This is available on our Web Shop in our Outbvack Accessory range.
The lighting, now a little dated with all the LED options available, gave over 1000w off extra lighting ontop more powerfull headlamp bulbs. With these and interior 12v accessories the OE TD5 alternator had a rework to produce a much higher amp charge rate to keep the twin batteries properly charged.
An ARB on-board compressor provided pressurized air for air tools and front and rear ARB air locking diffs....
There was so much more to this very special, in its time expedition vehicle. It travelled Europe and Morocco and even shipped as far as Namibia to cross the infamous Van Zyll's pass.
