Building a Defender: Cosmetics

Accessories can take a Land Rover Defender for sale and transform it into an extraordinary off-road machine. When we talk about cosmetic changes, this is not simply lip service about non-functional style adjustments or outlandish tools; it’s about transforming a Defender into a highly versatile everyday truck that will turn heads both on the trail and in the parking lot of the finest restaurant in town. Our Land Rover Defenders are works of art, but it takes a lot to get them there.

We start with structure: a solid chassis, wheels, and an exceptional engine. Most of our customers choose between a Chevrolet V-8 LS3 or LC9, the very same engine dropped into a Corvette. But, after we get the basics of the truck set, it’s on to the fun stuff: custom Land Rover Defender accessories for the 21st century.

Here’s a quick list of what we put into your build and how we do it:

  • Front end items are installed including critical components such as brushguards, illuminating headlights, and winches.
  • Seats and headliners are placed securely into position. There is a wide variety of seating layouts for you to choose from depending on the size of your family and the ambitions of your future journeys.
  • Doors are assembled by hand: panels, hinges, and other components go in, door seals are applied, and all aspects are checked and rechecked.
  • The spare tire is mounted into place.
  • Leather upholstery is hand stitched and fitted.
  • Inspections then take part on every inch of the Defender. We leave no stone unturned in our pursuit of quality and perfection, and if something is a millimeter out of place, we’ll make the necessary adjustments.
  • Finally, we add custom accessories like roof racks, sound systems, LED light bars, a snorkel (because you never know), and much more.

At East Coast Defender, we’ve been working with Land Rover Defenders for years, allowing us to combine the values of experience and innovative construction. Drive up to our sunny Florida Rover Dome to see for yourself. If you are interested in a Land Rover Defender for sale, contact us today.
