United Kingdom 2015 Defender 130 Puma 2.2 HCPU Corris Grey

Sorry Naf, not been on the forum for a while! Lots of work and lots of travelling/working on the 130. When I get the car back I'll have a measure up.

Since the last update I have done a few bits:
- Wired up the Anderson connectors front and rear for use with my winch
- Wired up a side Anderson connector for jumping the vehicle or charging off campsite electric hookups (permanent live)
- Wired up the DRL in my headlights
- Wired up a dashcam in the front where the rear view mirror used to be
- Fitted a IBS split charge battery system and two Odessey batteries
- Drawer system in the back fitted by tembob 4x4
- Wired up 12v sockets into the front cubby box, roof rack (for use in the roof tent) and the rear load area
- Mounted my sand ladders on the side and uprated the gas struts to hold the extra weight

Over the next few weeks I will be:
- Wiring up 120W solar panel on roof rack
- Wiring up rear LED work light (lazer utility)
- CB radio
- LED lights in rear load area
- ATB diffs front and rear
- Aux water tank
- Aux fuel tank
- Rock/Tree sliders
- SS HD steering arms, drop arm kit (sumo bar)
- HD trailing arms
- Diff guards (not purchased yet)
- Life hammer in front cab
- Fire extinguishers front and rear
- Double din dash
- Reversing camera

Think that's it! I'll put up a youtube video when everything is done I think.

For now here is a picture of how she currently looks sitting on top of the Alps (taken last week):

Cartoonhead, I fellow you in Instagram and I’m very envious of your 130 and where you have been taking it. I’d love to get my 130 to a set up like yours. And if your ever around Derbyshire let me know, the kettles always on.

Chris

Hey MuddyChris300tdi! Errrr sorry, not been on the forum for a few years Laughing Been out using the 130, spent a lot of time off-roading around Europe. Was due to be in Morocco right now for a month but sadly that didn't happen for obvious reasons.

I finished everything on my list, and I just haven't really needed to do anything else, nothings gone wrong either (knock wood). Here's a few pics of the 130 as she is right now:

Yeah absolutely love it mate, had it on the 130 outside for over a year and a half, probably spent about 4 months of those sleeping in it. Really comfy, still in great condition and nothing has broken, takes absolutely no time to put up or pack away. @tab.travels on instagram
