Take Your Family On The Ultimate Vacation In This 4×4 Overlanding Defender

East Coast Defender has a proven track record when it comes to the restoration and outfit of Land Rover’s most iconic platforms. While they’ve certainly found their own niche (and design terminology), we can’t deny a great-looking off-road build. The company’s most recent project, a Defender 90 dubbed “Project Family Vacation,” is one such model — and if you’re asking us, it’s one of their most authentic recreations, to date.

The Land Rover Defender 90 that you see here is the recipient of a handful of the company’s tried and true implementations, including a Corvette-sourced 6.2-liter LS3 V8 engine, a subdued body kit, and a bespoke interior that’ll have you “pining” for your next big off-road adventure. An upgraded Fox suspension system joins forces with the SUV’s enhanced performance brakes, helping to keep its Satin-stained, eight-spoke steel wheels and BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A tires pinned to the roadway, whether that be a finely-kept city street or a rugged off-grid fire road. A 12,000-pound winch and spare tire round out the vehicle’s formidable exterior. Head inside, and you’ll find a vintage NRG ST-065 steering wheel, VT Series gauges, and leather-upholstered seating, giving the SUV a rustic, yet modern look. Head over to ECD’s website to learn more about the aftermarket build.
