2006 LAND ROVER DE­FENDER 130 TD5

4 x 4 Australia - - Readers' Rigs -

I’M AN Aussie who has been trav­el­ling the world for the last 24 years, and this is the truck I plan on driv­ing back home to Aus­tralia. It was pur­chased in the UK about three years ago and I’ve been do­ing ev­ery­thing my­self. I up­graded pretty much ev­ery­thing and then some: VNT turbo, chipped com­puter, cus­tom high-air in­take, GKN elec­tric over­drive, ARB locker dif­fer­en­tials, elec­tri­cally op­er­ated roof-top tent with en­try from in­side the truck bed, 1500km fuel range, 120L of fresh wa­ter thanks to cus­tom­made aux­il­iary tanks, front and rear elec­tric winches, un­der­body pro­tec­tion, cus­tom ex­ter­nal pro­tec­tion cage, full LED light­ing, in-cab bilge pumps, three bat­ter­ies, 160W so­lar pan­els, hot and cold wa­ter, and an in-cab diesel fire heater... just the ne­ces­si­ties.
