Reviving a Classic: The Complete Guide to Restoring a Land Rover Defender 110
For over 20 years, the British Army has used Defenders for patrol, communications and supply duties in a fleet known as the Defender XD (XD means extra duty). Usually 110-inch (2,794 mm) soft or hard tops, they’re renowned for their toughness, with fibre webbing around welded joints and stress points to increase load capacity by a massive amount.
Defender 110s built for the British Army are plated with UK military registration plates and painted IRR green, typically deploying in the Falklands as troop carriers or communications vehicles. Some are customised by Landrover Specialist Vehicles to include the British Army’s distinctive front bumper, roll-cage, side-steps and G4 badging.
For those who want something a little more modern and authentic, there’s a whole host of custom Defender builders out there. From faithful restorations to one-of-a-kind constructions, these outfits will rework your Defender to fit you perfectly.
