ECD Automotive Design transforms classic Land Rover Defenders, inside and out. While all those under-the-hood mods get a lot of attention and help turn heads, a custom dashboard offers several distinct benefits. Find out how a Puma dash for Defender improves the performance, personalization, and durable design of the TD5 dash.
A Puma dash upgrades the basic controls, gauges, and dials for a streamlined look and improved functionality. These custom dashboard designs integrate with existing components, so the modification process doesn’t require new gauges, dials, or extensive retrofitting.
Any new features, like a USB charger or directional vents, can be seamlessly installed. The existing heating and fan control components are also compatible with a Puma dash for Defender modification.
The classic Land Rover Defender was meant to live off the beaten path. This means the Defender needs to be prepared for any situation. From the grille to the taillights, ECD offers dynamic design options to improve the performance of this classic addition to the Land Rover line.
A Puma dashboard kit is specially designed to deaden sounds better than the TD5 dash. This means the low hum of the engine, the grating noises of a rocky trail, and any other trail sounds are less harsh and unpleasant for drivers and passengers alike.
The facial vents are also redesigned with this custom dashboard option. Directional vents increase circulation for an efficient heating and cooling system. Defender drivers don’t have to leave behind creature comforts even when they’re miles from civilization.
It wouldn’t be a Puma dash for restored Defender drivers if it didn’t include a few personalized features. Diehard Defender fans need a few features to help their rig stand out in a weekend adventure or evening gathering. Here are some features drivers can compare and alter to create the optimal dash design for their specific Defender.
The center console is the command station for entertainment, comfort, and safety. Puma dashboards offer customizable options to create layouts that fit the specific driver. From the V-switches to the central infotainment screen, drivers can decide where components fit best for intuitive control during intense drives or casual cruises.
Puma dashboards make way for modern technological devices in classic Defenders. Drivers can swap out that retro radio for a state-of-the-art touchscreen device. Fully integrated GPS, audio, satellite radio, and other features are all optional add-ons to bring a vintage Defender into the 21st century.
High-tech upgrades aren’t just about entertainment. A custom dash offers an excellent opportunity to install a reversing camera to avoid unsafe backing-up situations in town and on the trail.
Defender owners can get behind the wheel of the interior color options with a Puma dash. When ordering a kit, Defender owners should consider the ideal color for their interior design. Optional leather trim offers the finishing touches to make a custom rig stand out.
These dependable kits are available in both right-hand and left-hand driving setups. The installation process is surprisingly straightforward, so the team at ECD Automotive Design can make quick work of this mod for an existing Land Rover or fully customized Defender order.
The Puma dash for Defender owners is built for the trail. Regardless of the highways, city streets, or dusty trails that a Land Rover calls home, a Puma kit is stronger than the original TD5 dash.
Drivers should consider adding a bracing bar to TD5 dashboards to avoid cracking or collapsing during intense off-road situations. A Puma, however, is ready to withstand these situations.
Navigate any adventure with the iconic look and feel of a custom Defender. Design a Defender today to see how a Puma dash and other components can transform this iconic Land Rover addition into a dream ride for any driver.
