1996 Defender 90 300 Tdi CSW Epsom Green
Another 130

Hi there, been around for a while but thought I'd introduce myself and the truck to the forum. It's a return for the beast, having previously been on here in some different guises, having previously been owned by Ronin. See here also.

Since then a few things have changed;

Bushtech Cab with some other stuff in the back
Twisted Wheels
285/75/16 BFGs
Recaros in the front
Cruise Control for those long runs
LEDs all round
Stage 1 remap

Next things I'm looking at are
Rack
Rooftop tent
Grille w/ ST4s as Ronin had it
Air system with output to airline for tyres / bikes and...
Locking rear diff

At the moment it's mainly a working vehicle but looking to do some trips etc. when we are allowed to travel so will increase the flexibility. Anything anyone recommends I'd be interested to hear.

Welcome to D2N, fantastic looking 130! Thumbs Up

I'm very envious of 130's and there are some great ones on the forum. Some of my favs for inspiration (careful it could cost you a lot!!)...

Nice truck. Patriot racks i believe are way to go. Just ordered a 3.5m one for my 130. Cheers

Hi all thanks for the comments.

Vis-a-vis rack I will probably go for the proprietary version for the cover, rather than the complete over the top.

I would then add an IKamper and awning but it seems a little pointless at the moment. Current focus is on drivability with the intention to do intercooler, air intake system, nuggets stuff air box, RAI and sumo bars.

would you not mount awning off the rack, likewise tent? or tent on front and awning direct off canopy? Cheers

The awning and the tent would both mount to the rack but on opposite sides. Whilst iKamper do an awning, it requires the tent to be up when in use. The batwing type can obvs be used independently of the tent
