Original Defender®

At TMD we have been carrying out Defender modifications for a quite a few years now, we have a large selection of upgrades available through our online store, that can also be fitted in our Sussex based workshop.

We are finding more and more that the market wants more subtle upgrades, like our open mesh grille and classic headlight surrounds is always a popular upgrade, couple these with the Vision-X headlights and smoked led lighting kit and your vehicle won’t only look better but you will be able to see where you are going.


We can carry out many other upgrades to, like full suspension lowering kits, that include new Springs, Koni shock absorbers, uprated anti roll bars and new bushes, not only will this give your vehicle a better stance, but the vehicle will ride a whole lot better too.

Then on the inside of the vehicle, we can fully soundproof the vehicle for a much quieter driving experience, fit cruise control, we can even fit a server to your clutch so you can push it down with one finger. On top of this one of our Shift-R short shifts is always an upgrade worth having, not only does it shorten the throw of the gear selection but gives the vehicle a much more modern gear change feel.

We are also able to offer fully customisable interiors, from new seats in full leather with bespoke stitching, to new cubby boxes which are taller and more comfortable to rest your arm on.

We can offer standard front seats retrimmed, or a more sportier looking front seat, we can even re-trim the rear seats to match the fronts.

We can offer full black Alcantara headlining too for a more swish look and feel for your Defender.

We can then upgrade your Audio system, we would normally start by fitting a double din stereo, that has Apple car play and then we can fit upgraded speakers and subwoofers for a much-improved sound.

We can also carry out full rebuilds including Galvanised chassis changes, full resprays in any colour your heart desires whether this be a Land Rover colour, or a colour from another brand. We can also fit several different wheels and tyres to suit your needs.

We can convert your Defender into a soft top, fit new side runners, wheels arches, bumpers etc.

We can pretty much build anything that your heart desires, whether it be just a few upgrades, or a full Spectre rebuild, the possibilities are endless and the great thing about having your Defender upgraded by us, is that we build it your way, so rarely do two Defenders look the same.
