The company provides a wide range of products. The main categories are Bumperettes and Steps, Diff Guards and Shackle Brackets. Not only that, you will find a range of Steering Guards and a variety of general Suspension Accessories available.
For Bumperettes & Steps, you can choose between rear corner protection bumperettes, and large or compact bumper protection steps.
In terms of Diff Guards, for the Discovery 2, the Diff Guard Front Wrap is a popular choice. These bolt-on parts add considerable protection to vehicles, and greatly reduce the possibility of becoming stuck on rocks, stumps or debris. There is no need for drilling as the guard comes with bolts supplied and uses existing mounting holes. What’s more, the guards are designed to be protected against corrosion, as the steel plates are galvanised.
Alternatively, you could try the Defender Diff Guard Front Wrap Around 90 110 Discovery 1 RRC. This guard has a long list of compatible vehicles, including all front axle Defenders, Discovery 12, Range Rover 1985-1994, an all front Rover axles Series 2 & 3. The guard, like most products, are not universal. This Diff Guard Front Wrap Around is not suitable for Discovery 2 (TD5) models, Wolf, P38 or Salisbury.
A product that is universal, however, is the Single – Universal 80×60 HD 4×4 Shackle Bracket. These mounts are made in the UK and constructed from strong structural steel. The bracket comes pre-drilled with four fixing holes. For mounting holes in an 80x60mm configuration will need to be drilled for fixing. The mount is powder coated and galvanised for rust protection. As it a universal bracket, it is compatible with most steel bumpers. The mount is both fully fillet and plug welded to give the item superior strength. The mount comes complete with a 5mm steel backing plate and grade 8.8 BZP mounting hardware.
A good selection of steering guards are available for both right hand and left hand drive vehicles. Most Discovery and Defender models are catered for. Suspension accessories include adjustable front shock turrets, coil spring spacers, lift block sets of 4 and 2, and lower rear dislocation cone kits.
