This Custom Mil-Spec Land Rover Defender Is Completely Street-Legal

Oct 24, 2019

The Land Rover Defender (and all its iterations) is one of the best ready-to-drive off-roaders ever made. But that doesn’t mean it can’t be improved upon in a number of ways. In fact, the folks at Method SV have customized this exceedingly-impressive and fully street-legal mil-spec edition — and it could be yours.

As mentioned, the original vehicle was already an excellent starting point with its 300tdi 2.5L 4-cylinder turbo diesel engine, but it’s the other upgrades that make the Method SV version all the better. That includes things like a Burtek Fighting Vehicles turret and Browning .50 cal M2HB semi-automatic rifle (with a built-in 55-gallon custom aluminum auxiliary feeder tank), an exterior roll cage with integrated SAW mounts, upgraded riding gear (with additions from Bilstein, Asfir, Terrafirma, and more), a custom grille, LED lights, a WARN winch, and so much more. Best of all, you can actually get one for yourself starting at $100,000 with the option for even more custom upgrades.

Purchase: $100,000+
