Arrow Autobiography Adventure Grille W/ Badge

I have so far 3 limited edition adventure autobiography grilles on their way and will be selling them for $1450 if anyone is interested. These are a nice touch to anyone who likes rare parts or is doing a modern restoration with a pair of Nolden headlamps. I understand the price may be a bit high for some so please don't hate me as these where hard to come by and I do not know how much longer till LR stops selling them to my source.

If your interested ill add you my reserve list and as they arrive will be accepting payments.

Includes:
- Limited Edition Adventure Grille
- Mounting Brackets
- Limited Edition Front Badge


More pictures to come in the following 1-2 weeks as the first few arrive.

Hey Jeff,

These are thick plastic with metal brackets and a metal badge and are painted from the factory in Santorini black. They are not flimsy by any means unless you intentionally try to break them as they are a genuine Land Rover part.

Since I bought one for myself I am now forced to buy some Nolden lamps :face palm: as it the two really compliment each other .. Although for fun I am going to see how the Trucklites look before I do since I have them in my stock of parts..

BTW I also have the santorini black headlamp bezels coming in a few weeks too.. Definitely easier for my to obtain too so there won't be as a limited supply on those.

I love the Orange and Black. Not sure my family would go for it though.

Odd gap between the top of the grill and the hood/bonnet...

Nice looking trucks, but that grille really punches out and down. I'm guessing it's done that way as to be universally applicable to a/c and non-a/c bulge grille surrounds. Looks to fit directly over a bulged breakfast. But it's so far forward I'm wondering if it would interfere/rub my brush guards (Simbars units are pretty close) and my deeper hella 3k's. Nonetheless, very cool and a muscular look for a puma hood. Kind of viper/charger nosed forward.

Its just the reflection. There is not too much of a gap on these but it can look that way from a distance I guess.

Yea depending on your A bar it can seem to interfere. I am probably going to have to either go with a different A bar on my setup with the stock bumper or completely remove it with this grille. All fun in modding defenders is switching it up sometimes and tinkering I guess..

Ive seen some adventure defenders with different bumper configurations though like the one from the Geneva motor show here fit a wench so not all functionality is lost over looks though at least. It will be interesting to see more out there and what types of mods are spotted done.

This grill fits exactly the same as the other pushed out grills. Soft A bar fits fine. Bumper fit varies depending on brand.

Bump $1275 shipped for defender source members in the states.

Next one is arriving in about a week.

Cool fact: LR only made 600 Adventure edition Defenders for sale in the UK.
