Front Runner Slimline II Rack now Available for New Defender 110

The well-known (and loved) Slimline II roof rack system from Front Runner Outfitters is now available with specific fitment for the new Land Rover Defender 110.

“Front Runner’s addition of the Land Rover New Defender 110 Slimline II Roof Rack Kit is a nod to the heritage of overlanding and early adventurers that utilized the original Defender platform for off-road travel. Offered in a modernized package, the Land Rover New Defender 110 Roof Rack Kit is a  thoughtful aftermarket solution for new Defender 110 owners looking to customize their build with a  tried-and-true roof rack system.”


The Slimline II rack is more than just a solution for transporting gear, it is a fully fleshed-out system with over 55 bolt-on accessories made specifically for overlanding and long-distance vehicle-dependent travel.

“As is true with all of Front Runner’s roof racks, the Land Rover New Defender 110 Roof Rack Kit is constructed of premium-grade durable materials that will withstand harsh weather and road conditions for a long and reliable life. The vehicle-specific footrails allow for a full-sized tray that clears the rear antenna for easy and full access. This rack can withstand the stress of any adventure, on-road or off-road, with load ratings that easily exceed Land Rover’s recommended maximum roof weight rating.

The Land Rover New Defender 110 Rack Kit contains all of the components needed to mount the roof rack to a new Land Rover Defender 110, including the Slimline II tray, wind deflector, and feet. The mounting system easily bolts to the existing mounting points on the body of the vehicle, eliminating the need for drilling. The patented mounting solution delivers trusted quality and strength necessary for extreme overlanding expeditions without compromising the streamlined, modern look of the SUV. Front Runner also offers a mounting solution for Defender 110 customers that opt to retain the factory roof rails.”


The Slimline II roof rack kit for the new Land Rover Defender 110 with direct mount footrails retails for $1,465 (or $975 to fit factory rails). Visit the Front Runner Outfitters website for more information.
