If you’re looking for a classic that can withstand the rigours of modern life, a custom defender 110 build is the way to go. Not only does a Defender look amazing when it’s fully restored, but it also comes with a lot of extras that you won’t find in a stock vehicle.
The Defender 110 is a three-row SUV that can seat up to seven passengers in the five+2 seating configuration. In this configuration, the first row of seats can be equipped with a passenger-across front seat for increased seating capacity.
Both the Defender 90 and the Defender 110 are available with a number of optional packages and individual options to customize the vehicle according to your needs. For example, a Family Pack adds a third row of seats and 3-zone climate control to the 4-door Defender 110, while an Off-Road Pack improves off-road capabilities even further.
Some of the most popular customizations include a custom-built hood, doors and bumper, a custom grille, a new exhaust system, a redesigned steering wheel and more. These custom builds aren’t cheap, but they can be more than worth the investment.
