zk-315 Posted April 25, 2019 Share Posted April 25, 2019 (edited) New here and was going to wait to do a build thread later on, but figured I might as well go ahead and start now. I'm in central Texas and picked up a 2019 HD10 Lonestar edition defender February 2nd this year. When I bought it, I had already had a pretty good idea on 90% of everything I wanted to put on it. My number one goal in this build is reliability and functionality, but still be a fully capable rig to do almost anything I want it to do. I don't plan to go super huge or make it a show machine. It will get used, but will also get taken care of. I like nice things, but when I can save a dollar here or there, I will do just that. I hunt a lot, do some guided hunts, and like to take my family out to trail ride and get outdoors. I've already added quite a few smaller things to it which I'll attempt to add pictures of everything throughout this build, in hopes it could help anyone out with anything. I'm a big fan of DIY installs and builds, so the majority of this thread will be directed in that manner. The larger purchases will slowly come, but I tend to add a bunch of the little knick-knacks all the time. Right off the bat I put the factory glass flip out windshield on it. Everything I have heard about the poly windshields were that it wasn't for me. I go through a lot of brush and didn't want it scratched all to hell (like the poly tends to do), so I spent the extra coin and really glad I did. Some of the smaller add-ons done so far: -Removed the factory door netting -Auxbeam LED cube lights on the back (ordered spot beam on accident and wish I would have gone with the flood beam) -factory matched rocker switch for the rear lights. I can get a little ocd at times and wanted this to match the rest of the switches -USB charging port with integrated volt meter (under the "Work, normal, eco" mode switch) -Seizmik mirrors - bolted through the a-pillar webbing down close to the dash. If I ever get doors, I may have to move these somewhere else. -Cheap amazon roll-bar led light for a dome light -Kohlpin Rhino XL gun clamps under front middle jump seat (best mod I've done so far!) -Rear view mirror (not installed yet) Edited April 25, 2019 by zk-315 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
