Swivel balls test

Guess which swivel ball is defender vs series vs Santana...

Owning a Santana requires a lot of patience and research to figure out which parts are compatible with series trucks and defenders. Technically, they call it a series IV, hence the hodge podge of parts and difficulty in determining what will work. On the other hand, according to Timm Cooper (whom many of you know) the Santanas were actually built more robustly than defenders and is a good platform for building into an overlanding or offroad rig. more to come...

Almost everything is rufly the same just little bit different.

I did a brake system on a santana, nothing compatible. ordering from Spain was a longlasting nightmare.

Some things are improved but i would stick to a original land rover if you like to drive one instead of dreaming how it drives.
