Custom LR Build Shops

Besides SHP and the dreaded ECR, who else out there is doing quality Defender builds, and is not likely to get raided by DHS, CBP, ATF, FBI, CIA, DEA [...insert other 3 letter agencies here...]?

Toying with a having someone else build me a truck while I am out of the country.

I am doing a custom 110 with Dale right now. I am very happy with the whole thing.

Have used Trevor in the past too (was living near his shop at the time....knowing Trevor took me from consumer to enthusiast...).

Both are great people near you.....my 78c.

I can't say enough good things or recommend any higher Rich at RSV in Jamestown, RI. He's been great at assisting when required while I've been stationed in Newport, and has become a good friend.

Very experienced with Rovers and now the go-to guy for area specialty retailers, he's also well-connected and respected within the business side of the community and has a super interesting list of accomplishments and travels. His results, quality workmanship, customer service and word of mouth alone keep him busy without advertising.

I'd send any and all Rover fans his way for repairs, upgrades or complete vehicle projects.

Yep, so far - mine too. Our 110 is there now so I'll have more details soon.
