muddstuff Defender vent

Just saw these after reading a mudstuff thread. I have their seat rails already and i love them. We all know we could use a little better heat/defrost capability. Anybody running these? they look awesome!

I did not see that on their site when I placed my order early this week. Had I seen it I would have had them send me one

I wonder, is this the same as the German ones that showed up here a couple months ago?

it is a brilliant idea but I can't believe this can not be an easy home build. I am thinking if you use a 1/2" plumbing PVC barb, drill a hole in the side of your vent and epoxy that in. A local piping store should have a small vent and just get the matching hose. About $10 in parts. And if it doesn't work, then I'll buy the mudtunnel. But blowing air will always find an easy way to escape.
Another example is instead of the louved vent, drill hills in the landrover capping so the air will flow out of that and hit the window.
I am as well looking at car air freshners as they have a vent style cap to them which may be of use.
If I do anything I will post.

You obviously could make something up, but those have been custom cast to give more flow to the windscreen as well as the side vents.

There is a bolt behind that logo to hold the handle to the dash, but I agree that you could probably build something suitable very inexpensively. I do like the idea of the defroster vents being changed, but with the heated windscreen it isn't as important.

Yea, I've got to get me one of those heated front windscreens for next winter.
And I forgot about that screw behind the plate! It's been a while I guess since I had the dash off.

Any readout on the MudUK demisters and side vent?



I think RN carried them at one time; not sure if they still do. Anyone stocking them?

Also came across these but not enough of a description to cause much interest:
