    I don't know. I travel with my sliding window behind cab open and it is dust free in the back. I am talking about Namibia dust.

    Combination of foam strips and door rubber.

    If I recall, the 130 tail gate isn't a one-piece like the 110? It's the HiCap tail gate? It has removeable sub-frames?

    Thanks Jelo.

    Im not sure.



    Biggest gap I can see is where the catch "linkage" goes through the sheet metal to the pin.

    "95% Dust free" is an oxymoron and does belong in the same sentence, Defender does not belong in the same paragraph.....

    On my 130 the only dust proof part was the loadbin. The original tailgate rubber it came with did a really good job. Way better than the doors. With the rubberized bin i had to open the drainage hole in the front corner to drain water from time to time.

    The original rubber got damaged and was later replaced with a universal sort of door rubber i bought per meter, but it's not the same. It helps, but it's far from dust proof.

    The only dust free part of my Defender is the dry-bag I keep my paddling emergency kit in. Oh, and the extra can or two of engine oil I carry.
