    The issue with the new Defender is the load space in the rear is quite small,if the second row seats are being utilised,so a rack is what is needed.
    Two jerries,30 litre or so of water,fridge,and there isn’t much room left for other gear,particularly if camping.
    As i have the thirst quenching P400, i have ordered a double horizontal Jerry can holder for the rack,
    it will sit forward next to the second spare, that should give me about 500K's range off the bitumen

MY22 build (delivery Novemberish) and yes - seats also in full leather. BTW - anyone seen the khaki green leather first hand? I kinda liked the look of it on screen but dealer didn't have any to look at so have gone with ebony for now...
    I did the same yesterday! Ordered a Eiger grey 90 D250 with steel wheels..bit bloody excited, going to be a long 6 months!!

    Where did the jerry can holder come from? And what’s a wedge tail spare wheel carrier? Just about to order a 110 250 Fender S with not many extras.
    Are you happy, with the LR rack?

    the LR expedition rack/platform is a quality bit of kit, made by Thule, so takes various manufacturers fittings,
    mine has rhino rack tred pins for the recovery boards, wedgetail racks wheel carrier, I will need
    to check with bars n racks on the jerry can holder. Only issue has been the awning mounts, they
    had to be fabricated due to the shape of the platform sides, had a local engineering co in Sydney do that

    Interestingly this guy in the USA has used the Front Runner Water Tank and Jerry Can holder on his LR Rack.

    I wonder what weight he has on the roof, didn’t include 6th spare tyre. Also he mentioned Redarc dual battery, is it installed in car or just loose?

    This video make s me feel a bit better about putting in my order for a D250, was a bit worried about how to pack everything.

    He has a Youtube video showing the setup. He took out the tray under the rear flap in trunk/boot and installed battery, redarc dcdc and an inverter there.
