1995 NAS Defender 90
New soft top, ECR ROX upgrades and more
This really clean 38,000 mile Defender 90 was recently sold by ECR and the new buyer wanted a few changes and upgrades to make it his own. The top on the D90 had a ripped rear window, so we will be installing a new upgraded top. In the image above you can see we have removed the old top and are doing some of the minor service items that the D90 needs to be ready to go.
One of the great things about the upgraded top is that it cures the door seal problem. On most D90s soft tops you can reach into the vehicle behind the door top because the factory Bestop is so floppy. The original Tickford tops were even worse. The image above shows the gutter kit that is supplied with the top. It takes some work to get it set up the first time, but once installed with the new door seal the top and seal work together to make a great upgrade to any D90. The door top stays in contact with the seal and leaks and air gaps are a thing of the past.
The tops are made from better materials, they fit correctly and look great. Here you can see the D90 with its new black top installed and looking great.
Underneath the D90 we made some repairs to some leaking seals and installed some off road goodies. These included a rear recovery point as well as the OME stabilizer, ECR ROX heavy duty drag link and the differential guard you see above.
We also installed an ECR ROX tie rod guard, shown above. The tie rod guard is ultra heavy duty and fully surrounds the tie rod so that it an not be harmed while off roading. Our ECR ROX unit is made to work with or without the factory sway bar. You can see on this D90 the sway bar is still in place and fully functional. It utilizes the stock tie rod and when combined with our heavy duty drag link it makes for a steering system that is ready to tackle the trail. The ECR ROX tie rod guards are so tough you can jack up the front end of the vehicle by the tie rod guard if you so desire.
Here you can see the Defender set up and ready to head to MA to the new owner. We have fully serviced the 90 to made it ready to enjoy without hassles for the new owner, and we have also guided him on some off road upgrades that will help him get into the hobby of four wheeling. We are sure this D90 will be back for more tricks as the new owner finds out just how much fun it can be hit the trail with friends and family.
