Safari bling

Here's some Rover porn for those whose tastes run to safari expeditions where your hi-lift jack is colour matched with your custom paint job, and your rear storage compartments are handcrafted out of rare hardwoods: Schuhmacher 4x4 in Nairobi.

I stopped in at this place when I was passing through Nairobi, and the builds are something to behold. A lot of their kit is custom built by them. I actually bought a bull bar from them and it is so heavy duty that it really needs two guys to lift it. Anyway, something different and very high end safari. You see a lot of Defenders in Kenya with these sorts of modifications for game driving, but Schuhmacher takes it onto another plane entirely. And here's the kicker: the 2006 Bronze Metallic 110 pictured here is up for sale at just USD $55,000. Sigh.

I visited Schumacher in Nairobi. Here is their link: http://www.schuhmacher4x4.com/

They make REALLY nice Defenders and mods if you bring yours in. I most like their full body side impact roll cages and dual wheel bumpers. Check out their bling safari trailer with like 100 wine bottle holder!
