    Bullbar for new Defender

    Had the OEM bullbar installed by LR Sandton. All cameras and parking sensors working as normal. Not a cheap bit of kit but very happy with it so far.

    Discovery 3 Re: Offroading in 19" wheels - what did you do?

    Standard size for the new Defender is 255. Not sure about the bolt pattern but given the Tuffant steel rims fit D3 and the ND it may work.

    Re: Is this it?

    100% agree. Thats the approach I'm going for (see pic). Although I am planning on equipping the Defender to the point where I can use it without a trailer for shorter trips.

    Just to add, I previously spent 3 weeks in Botswana in a Defender 90 with enough fuel and food on board for the whole trip so, as others have already pointed out, where thereís a will thereís a way.

    Guys have already fitted 33" tyres with only 1" inch lift. So should be able to fit 275/70/R18s giving you a perfectly respectable sidewall of 193mm
