Full Whiteout! This customer wanted the entire vehicle to be in white for the full SNOW effect. All of the exterior bodywork, the wheels, Hannibal Roof Rack, steps, steering guard and even the Safari Snorkel were colour coded to match. Inside it was RED ALL THE WAY with leather seats, carpet and roof lining all colour matched in red. Only the chrome and alloy switchgear, door furniture, steering wheel boss and gear knobs provide the neutral accents to really round off this stunning Defender interior

Nene Overland has been preparing vehicles for Overland Expedition travels for decades. You don’t always need a vehicle that has been totally re-built from the ground up and had hundreds of accessories bolted to it. Often just a few select essentials is all you need to keep you going for the shorter trips. this keeps the weight down and allows you to still use the vehicle for every day driving.

This vehicle has the makings of a great Overland Truck. We started with a Hannibal Roof Rack and Roof Tent, added a raised air intake and a selection of underbody and body protection, improved the suspension for long term heavy duty use and handling then left the rest to the customer.

The Defender 110 Utility gives you the best of both worlds: A great 5-seater vehicle but all the secure storage capacity in the back you’d need for essential overland kit. Why not come and [...]

CamelBAC Storage Canopies

We can design and build bespoke aluminium rear canopies for all Defender Double Cab and Single Cab pick ups including the high-capacity 110 and 130 models. Our CamelBAC is designed for lightness and strength. They are built to order either the same height as the existing Defender roof or slightly higher to enable the aluminium Hannibal roof rack to be mounted directly in top of the CamelBAC with no gap between the roof and roof rack, this gives you more storage and a much sleeker clean looking finish to your vehicle.

Customers can have the CamelBAC colour matched (as in the above photos) and incorporate one or more side access doors with internal divisions and drawers for equipment storage or kitchens for those planning overland travel and rough camping. One-off specials to customer specs can also be supplied.
