Spring is right around the corner, and as snowy weather kicks in, everyone is looking forward to the next season’s warmer temperatures. Having several builds being delivered in spring and building our custom Defenders here in sunny Florida, we know a thing or two about what a spring-ready custom Defender looks like.
One of the staples of a spring-ready custom Defender is a build that has a convertible top. Whether you like the smaller D90 size for quick trips around town or you’re shopping for a Defender 110 for the family, having a removable canvas top can open up your views and vibes when riding in warmer weather. The best part is you can wrap the top up and store it in the rear if you get a chilly last-minute temperature drop from winter.
Having a spring-ready build, you’ll definitely want it to be a daily driver. Our range of GM drivetrains is perfect for daily-driving Defenders that are easily serviceable at any local GM dealer. The vehicle’s performance can determine if your build can take on calm drives to the beach as well as rough terrain rides for hiking trips in the mountains. Having the option to go anywhere in the spring is essential! If you’re conscious of your carbon footprint, E.C.D. launched its partnership with Electric Classic Cars to produce Tesla Direct Drive engines that can truly bring your custom Defender into the 21st century. With charging stations popping up everywhere, it’s a great opportunity to charge your Defender while you handle some spring shopping.
If you like to start your vacationing in the spring and you love road trips with tons of friends and family, you’re going to want to design your seating layout to maximize your level of seating or storage. If you like to visit beaches, the forest, or other outdoor locations, you’ll want enough storage in the rear for blankets, tents, coolers, and more. Adding in jump seating is the perfect way to get a few extra seats in your vehicle that can make for a comfortable ride for extra guests; plus, they fold up if you need to jet off quickly to pick up groceries or supplies. The benefit of your Defender being built by E.C.D. is that all of these options are entirely custom, and you can even take a look at a 3D rendering to ensure the layout is perfect for you.
From roof racks to custom features and everything in-between, your custom Defender has all the options available to be fitted with your ideal accessories for spring. We have custom cabinets that come with built-in inserts for wine and picnics, tubular doors that are perfect for those drives to the beach or lake, roof racks that can accommodate gear or even a rooftop tent, and so much more. If you have a dream in mind for riding your build into the sunset of spring, E.C.D. can definitely build it. We work with a range of brands to deliver the best fittings for all our builds, and we have everything in-house, so we can even custom build different features you may have in mind.
