Safety Devices Roll Cages

If you are thinking of taking your Defender for an adventurous trip over rough terrain you might want to consider using a Safety Devices roll cage to help protect you in case of a roll over. The purpose of a roll cage is to help protect the cab of the vehicle against collapse. When considering a roll cage option, bear in mind that some roll cages, especially part cages, will offer less protection than others. Generally the full internal/external cages will be stronger than others.

Xerbera Automotive always recommends the addition of a 6 point Safety Devices roll cage as an additional safety measure for all Defender models regardless of your vehicle use plans.

Custom 3″ Cosmetic Roll Cage Hoop for Land Rover Defender 110 Double Crew Cab rear cargo. Made from large 3″ tube then sand blasted, Zinc coated and Powder coated to ensure a good finish, durability and no rusting in wet weather. Although the rear cargo roll bars are very strong, they haven’t been tested in a roll over situation, thus only recommended for cosmetic use and we strongly suggest installing Safety Devices 4-point external NAS style bolt-in front roll cage.

Available in Black or Silver finish.

Please note: We would strongly recommend the additional fitting of chequer plates to the cargo area with this option.

Remember, we all have one life – live it… with safety in mind!

Bowler 18″ Light Weight Racing Wheel

These 8 x 18-inch, UK-made wheels have been designed by Bowler for its racing Defenders, their lighter weight – compared to Boost alloys – lowering the unsprung weight of the axles. The lower unsprung weight will help improve handling on- and off-road.

What exactly is unsprung weight? In a ground vehicle with a suspension, the unsprung mass (or the unsprung weight) is the mass of the suspension, wheels, and other components directly connected to them, rather than supported by the suspension (the mass of the body and other components supported by the suspension is the sprung mass). Unsprung mass includes the mass of components such as the wheel axles, wheel bearings, wheel hubs, tires, and a portion of the weight of driveshafts, springs, shock absorbers, and suspension links. If the vehicle’s brakes are mounted outboard (i.e., within the wheel), their mass (weight) is also considered part of the unsprung mass.

These high strength, light weight wheels are TUV tested and load-rated for Defender 110s and allow clearance for the bigger brakes fitted to the Bowler racers.

The wheels are 8” wide and will accept tires ranging from 255 – 285 wide.

This super strong and very stylish 6 spoke alloy wheel is rated at 1300kg per wheel and with the unique beadlock ready outer rim provides incredible rock damage resistance and protection for the valve core.

The Terrafirma beadlock alloy wheel is available in 5 x165 PCD which fits Land Rover Defender, Discovery 1 and Range Rover Classic. The rim width is 7x16 which allows the fitment of 12 inch (300mm) wide tyres. When the tyre is fitted to the outside of the rim and retained with the beadlock rings then it becomes an 8 inch wide rim allowing for slightly wider tyres. The offset is 20mm meaning when both wheels are fitted the vehicle track width is 40mm wider allowing for increased steering lock with taller tires and improved handling and more planted stocky looks.

These innovative wheels allow the beadlocks to be retro fitted so that as your off-roading goes further so does your equipment.

Ram Air Wing Top and Bonnet Scoops

In the on-going quest to make our vehicles more powerful and fun to drive, we’ve come up with a great Ram Air System. Of course there are lots of changes you can make to your Defender like a new exhaust system, bolt-ons like superchargers and turbos, but seriously, that stuff costs tons of money – both for parts and labor.

Our custom made Ram Air Wing Top and Bonnet Scoops are integrated into the cold air intake system and designed not only to enhance the looks of the Defender, but to allow the engine to breathe cooler air resulting in more power gain.

Cold Air intake system won’t add quite as much power as other engine mods, but they will help your engine in some other ways. Think of a standard factory air intake system as like having a cold that clogs up your head and restricts your breathing. Now go running. It’s not going to work very well, is it? A cold air intake is like amazing medicine that allows your engine to finally breath.

Cold air intakes move the air filter outside of the engine compartment so that cooler air can be sucked into the engine for combustion. Cooler air brings more oxygen (denser air) into the combustion chamber and that means more power. The filters are usually moved to the upper wheel well area or near a fender where there is more access to free flowing, cooler air and less hot air from the engine. Not only does a cold air intake reduce the air temperature, but it also increases airflow.

A ram-air intake is an intake design which uses the dynamic air pressure created by vehicle motion to increase the static air pressure inside of the intake manifold on an internal combustion engine, thus allowing a greater mass-flow through the engine and hence increasing engine power.
