Tipper bodies

Someone on here mentioned having built, or had built a tipping back for a 130 defender. Can't find the thread if someone can point me in the right direction that would be cool, cheer's

Re: Tipper bodies

Send Mr Ed a pm. He had them built by a guy in the midlands. Two bodies for 130 crew cabs, they look smart too, having seen them in the metal.

Re: Tipper bodies

Thank's for the quick replies, have the tipping body on the 130 at the moment just gettin costing's to see what is going to be more cost effective in the long run ,purpose built or get mine altered locally. Not sure what will be the easier route.

Re: Tipper bodies

My bodies cost me 1150 plus vat fitted, which was over 1000 cheaper than anywhere else in the country. Thats high sided with 3/4 height alloy barn doors.

The guy is a bit slow on delivery, but the quality of work is A1 and the price unfrikkinbelievable!

Re: Tipper bodies

Mr Ed did you find somewhere that makes the cross body tool box, that wasn't silly money ? and did you have pic's of your tipper's on a thread on Arbtalk.

Re: Tipper bodies

Nene Overland are ridiculously expensive - real Joke prices.

I made my own cross body toolbox in the end, But I'm working on a rather clever toolbox at the moment.
