Land Rover Defender 130, Modified.


Land Rover Defender 130, it's only taken over 2 years to get one on the series (yes I know far too looonnngggg).

This 130 is just straight up awesome, there are not many getting around in Australia with this amount of modes and that much flex. I have never seen a Defender flex like this before!

The mods don’t just stop there, they continue throughout the entire vehicle a very well thought truck. This is not the first Defender Justin has owned either, he actually owns a few more which are in his garage…

Justin’s top 3 trips in the Land Rover Defender 130:

  1. Down south, fish creek, Moores hut
  2. Exmouth
  3. Lucky bay 



Justin's modification tips:

Make sure you use somebody who knows how you work on and modify this vehicle

 


Things to lookout for with this model vehicle:

Check rear axle and flange wear, can wear fairly quickly i.e. 45000kms



Top 3 tips with the Land Rover Defender 130:

1.   Install a catch can to prevent oil in the ic hoses and intercooler 

2.   Install water fuel separator to stop dodgy fuel

3.   Install low coolant alarm as temp gauge doesn’t move before damage is done if hose blows off
