'86 Tithonus 110 RHD modded

Here is an opportunity to have a Defender that was completely overhauled by Land Rover for the MOD!! Only 80k original miles total!! Rust free example that runs great, returning 25 mpg from a fully mechanical diesel engine - zero electronics. So, we took this amazing platform, and modified it to be more civilian friendly, and ready for any adventure. ARB front winch bumper with a Warn 9500HSi winch was fitted, as well a set of Hella 4000's and a LED light bar in front, and a set of LED rears too. Then we added a set of Land Rover sliding side windows to improve visibility and airflow, a rear lift gate/tail gate combo, and even the rear fixed windows as found on civilian Defenders, and a flip up sunroof to allow light and added cooling! Conversely, we retained the original gun mounts (easily removable) but added a center tray from the Puma style Defenders, as well as waterproof seat covers. In the end, this is a fantastic way to get into a Land Rover Defender designed to be abused, yet refurbished by Land Rover and equipped with many modern amenities! Oh, forgot to mention the obvious Baja roof rack which is tied to the military cage and tires have been upgraded to ultra rare 8.25 Michelin XZLs....
$18,950

NOTE: A spare uncut top and original full rear door can also be included.

So is the rack welded on to the cage or clamped on? The front hoop above the front doors looks like it's welded to the cage?

The rack is bolted to the cage, as tabs were added to facilitate same (with rubber isolators on each side of the fiberglass top). The front added hoop is welded to the cage, but the rack bolts to said hoop. Since the A hoop hinges forward on the Tithonus, it is not an issue- completely different than a NAS application.

Thanks William!! Not quite a perfect fit- even by Rover standards as the corner radius varies slightly. But his watertight, which is a bit ironic ;-)

Actually an improvement as we are just rolling countryside- helps the top end a touch! I am absolutely happy to exchange for a set of 235's should the buyer be so inclined...

Thanks Pedro!!

Did not, but he is a LR owner: LR3 and RRC, trips to SA in a Series, etc. He is quite excited, and lives in Miami, so not too far from you. In fact I may give your contact info if you don't mind, and perhaps Raubs- maybe you guys can breed them down there ;-)
