Product focus – Defender roof rack and ARB roof tent

IMG_20170807_182539

In a bid to prepare his 110 for an overlanding holiday in Morocco, Jim has been investing in some hardware to increase the practicality of his truck.

The first new addition was a full-length roof rack from Allmakes 4×4  (part number TF975). The roof rack arrived flat-packed, and took a few hours to install; be aware, this is not a one-man job!

Once the roof rack was fitted and secure, the ARB roof tent (DA8981) and side awning (DA6826) were added. Installation is “simply” a case of lifting them up onto the roof rack and strapping them on.

With everything loaded up, Jim was pleased to find that the 110 doesn’t feel especially top-heavy, and the fuel consumption has only dropped a couple of mpg. With one successful camping trip already under his belt, Jim is already looking at the catalogues to choose the next upgrade…

NEW! Terrafirma Defender Disc Brake Handbrake Conversion Kit is Here

Part Number: TFDBHBK

Forget the conventional drum handbrake that becomes inefficient when wet and dirt filled and that requires frequent servicing to keep it working properly. The new Terrafirma disc brake hand brake conversion kit uses an advanced fully sealed calliper with supreme clamping force and anti-rattle pad design. Long life high friction brake pads provide considerable holding force in all conditions.purchase

The unique calliper is mounted on a sturdy steel mounting plate with a built in disc protector skid plate. Ground clearance is not affected as the disc is smaller than the original drum.

 

The kit comes complete with a new cable and suits all Defender applications.
