Expedition Motors


This 110 Defender is fully loaded with every extra you can imagine including the kitchen sink! The top of the Defender rises to provide a large sleeping area thus enabling the rest of the load area to house all your gear. Built into the back door is a gas cooker, Fresh water storage tanks are tucked away under the wheel arches to provide drinking water & water for the Shower! Additional storage space is provided in the form of compartments cut into the rear tub wing sides. On the roof is a large solar panel to provide charge for the large batteries that run through a converter to provide 240Volts for all the electrical gadgets fitted/required. An air con compressor has been modified to supply air to a storage vessel and can be use to re-inflate tyres or run air tools at a pressure of 100psi. This is just a small number of additions to this motor making it fit for some serious expedition!


Light modifications for Green Laning expeditions have been made to the two Discoverys seen in the picture. These consist of additional/reinforced recovery points, up-graded suspension, mud tyres & storage boxes.
