East Coast Defender Premieres Two Powerful Truck Builds in a California Versus Florida Great Debate

Kissimmee, Fl: (December 4, 2017): East Coast Defender (E.C.D.), the award-winning automotive group, today unveiled the first pair of powerful trucks simultaneously designed in Design Centers on opposite coasts before traveling through the build process, side by side, at the Rover Dome in Kissimmee, Florida.

California versus Florida, it’s the great debate.  As different as the weather, these two vehicles showcase the versatility of a custom Land Rover Defender by East Coast Defender and go the extra mile towards capturing the top spot as possibly the greatest things ever, to come out of either of these two beachy states.

“These two truck builds have been both thrilling and challenging all at once, but each of them represents something special, “states Scott Wallace, East Coast Defender Co-Owner.  “While this isn’t an East Coast-West Coast rivalry, we offer our clients thousands of design possibilities and we think it’s going to be interesting to see which location produces the best designs to advance the E.C.D. brand.”

From traditional trucks to sporty and rugged, E.C.D. leads the way in personalization and performance exploration when it comes to customized Land Rover Defenders and Range Rover Classics.  Our customers agree, that it is our ability to blend the utility of a truck with the versatility of a classic that sets an E.C.D. built apart.

Why build all of the vehicles in Florida?  The company’s founders determined long ago that if they wanted to become the best custom Land Rover Defender builders on the planet they would have to have complete control from start to finish.  Since that day, the team at East Coast Defender has places an immense amount of pride in each custom vehicle built at the Rover Dome in Kissimmee, Florida.
