I love my Defender 130 tipper, made more drivable by the JE Engineering Stage 2 remap done a few years ago - more torque, as well as power that gives golf GTR drivers a fright now and then!


Only thing I'm looking at now are the Tibus Portal Hubs - the amount of woodland work we do where I need all the clearance I can get make it a no brainer, while still being cheaper than a unimog! (Sorry for swearing on the forum!)

They sound expensive and looks like you need their rims n all?

They aren't cheap, but compared to the cost of buying a unimog they are a lot less. Plus you keep your Land Rover axles standard as they bolt onto the end of the axles.


The wheels are beadlock rims - approx £300 euro each with CTIS ability.
