Finally a 4x4 that looks good with a hard rooftop tent.

I dont often like the look of the hard ones but this will be on my list off accessories.

Great shot offroad by Nick Dimbleby

Mine.

also for those building the model.
Please make sure the propshaft UJ joints are in alignment with each other.
Otherwise you get a cracking noise and the engine doesn’t go up/down properly.

Easy fix, I did it when mine was fully build up.

Hmmmm .......... I have to say that Ray's LR3 Prospeed roof rack + clamshell rooftop tent is a much better solution than Land Rover's Luxury Defender "wing" that sits up in the wind. In today's world mechanical systems design/modeling is done with CAD software. LR's roof rack is a fail compared to a Prospeed.

They put the roof top tent on but no ladder? How do you get up there? Or is the ladder on the other side for right hand drive vehicles?

Looks like JLR wants you to believe there is no Gold at the end of a rainbow, just Land Rovers...

No idea what u are referring too by "luxury defender wing"
It is designed with wind resistance in mind plus to not affect operation of the vehicle.

Notice the height will allow both pano roof and ragtop to retract and the rear cutout allows net and radio to function as it should, its also got spaced crossbars to allow pano or ragtop to still be usefull with roofrack installed, lightweight allow but high load capacity. Covered by factory warranty.
Roofrack Fail, not by a long shot.

Rooftop tent, I generally dont like the look of clamshell rooftop tents, but im liking LRs factory option so far, it looks complimentary to the vehicle.
Fail, again no, looks great.

For me, Im thinking ladder on drivers side (AU), no external storage box, gulwing awning on passenger side, LR rack and tent up top for trips.

Prospeed, they do great gear too, looking forward to see what they come up with for the new defender. Couldn't find any clamshell tent on their website or fbook but their roofrack looks good apart from the fact it changes the whole look of the roof.

With I think two of the four accessory packs there is a deployable ladder on the opposite side from the side storage box.
