I'd prefer an honest one. I know this common knowledge to most, but I am sincerely asking. I would be willing to pay the premium for an genuine grill, but I was unsure if they made the originals for ac. If not, i was just going to grab one of these. Apologies for newb question.

So when grill references AC, it doesn't mean whether your truck has it or not, but rather if you have the extended nose grill or not.

Ahhh that makes sense. Thank you. So I could in fact wait out for a "genuine" version.

Sorry that came across wrong. I was just confirming that the original/ genuine Heritage fits on a 97.

Here is the pricing excluding shipping:

Prices would be for small in GBP £ excluding UK VAT and carriage


1-4 grilles £115

5-8 grilles £110

9-12 grilles £105

12+ grilles £100

I'll give the group buy till Friday before closing it. Then we can get finalized pricing with shipping from the UK. Once I receive the grills, I will contact you all individually for you shipping addresses and the actual shipping cost from me to you.

Just an observation.
I find it Ironic that some of you who hurl insults my way for changing the look of a OEM defender (oh the sacrilege) are ordering a product to give their Defender an updated look.

I am not knocking a good product as it looks well made. I am merely commenting on previous insults given by those buying.

Mark with all due respect....nothing wrong with updating them at all....I believe most people don't like the blingy wheels and other mall crawler stuff you put on. But to be clear you are opening the LRs to another demographic. And making money which is the American way.

No matter what though everyone has an opinion.

X2 the rims and tires are usually the only parts of your builds that are off putting, remind me of the h2s from the late 90s (which I made fun of back then). But there is an ass for every seat and if that's what your customer wants then by all means you should give it to them.

These grills have a much more factory appearance then the KBX products and retain the front light surrounds. They also aren't splattered with a huge name badge like Kahn products.

I guess it's like the Ed Hardy t-shirts and spray tans; some tastes I just don't understand :P

I'm amazed that a Defender has enough pull in the marketplace to accommodate both types of buyer.
Ie the Himalaya type buyer and Authentic off road/farm buyer.

Actually, your mistaken... These are replicas of the heritage grill that came on series trucks, so we are really giving it a further outdated look :p

Putting on a "Heritage" grill isn't changing the look of an NAS Defender. Far from it.

Shipping will be 95GBP for 12.

There are no small Brunel in stock and I was told the factory no longer makes them in that color. There are also no large black in stock. There is one Brunel in large however. Please let me know snowpup and alaskaptain what you want to do.

Also, does anyone know what the import duty fee would be? They are willing to break it up into two shipments if that helps.
