Customize Your Land Rover Defender

2021 Land Rover Defender

 

Whether you hope to leave a lasting impression on the Fort Lee streets or you want to ditch your Englewood commute and go off-roading, a new Land Rover Defender offers incredible capabilities. A lifted Land Rover Defender is one that’s equipped with an after-market lift kit, as opposed to an OEM off-road package or accessories. Whether you prefer the stock suspension, want to upgrade to an electronic air suspension, or prefer to lift your Land Rover, you can expect legendary performance from this beast. Benefits of crafting a custom Land Rover Defender with improved or a lifted suspension include:

  • Higher ground clearance
  • Improved departure angle for large rocky obstacles and steep climbs
  • Sturdier springs, for extra cushion when landing on rough terrain
  • Offers extra room for bigger tires
  • Greater visibility through heavy traffic

 

Lifted Land Rover Defender: Lift Kit Options

If you’re interested in learning more about lift kits, our service pros and parts experts are a great resource. Take a look at some lift kit options and their benefits here:

  • Body lift kits — Body lift kits are more affordable and are relatively easy to install. They offer improved performance without making drastic changes to the construction of your vehicle.
  • Suspension lift kits — Suspension lift kits offer greater height, improved ground clearance, and other perks. However, they can be somewhat complicated as changes to shocks/struts, leaf springs, control arms, trailing arms, and more can be required. 

In the end, finding the lift kit that suits your needs is the most important factor. So, our team will evaluate your wishlist and point you in the right direction to help you secure the look and performance you desire for your The Bronx travels.
