    Re: Defender 130 Overlander build

    Tyres look like new, rather use this set until they're worn down, then replace? Unless you can trade these in on a new set?

    Re: Defender 130 Overlander build

    Why not go halvies and get the steel wheels powder-coated in black or gunmetal/dark grey? ?

    IMHO, it will make a the truck look great!

    Re: Defender 130 Overlander build

    Bruce, if you don't want to lift it, then get LR heavy-duty coils for the front and airbag helpers for the rear.

    I'd recommend Bilstein or Koni shocks over Terrafirma.

    Or go completely air?...
