The team at East Cost Defender (ECD) is know for building some the coolest and cleanest Land Rover Defenders in the United States, and they have just added to their awesome lineup with the ECD USA 110 Edition. This fullsize four-door Defender offers the best of both worlds: a capable off-road machine and space for the family and all your gear -- perfect for a daily driver weekend wheeler.

This five-passenger SUV packs everything a solid wheeler and comfortable daily driver should have. A potent 3.9L V-8 Range Rover engine lives under the hood, giving it the grunt to get up the trail and pass most Jeep JKs on the highway. A 2-inch Terra Firma suspension lift gives added ground clearance without being ridiculously tall and makes room for the 16-inch Sawtooth wheels wrapped in BFGoodrich All-Terrain tires. Rebuilt axles and upgraded disc brakes on all four corners give this beast a strong and capable foundation. Protecting this work of sheet metal art is a set of rock sliders and beefy checker plates, giving you an extra boost of confidence on the trail.

The interior wasn’t left out of the ECD treatment. A custom leather interior is added, and you get to choose the color. Marine grade is installed for easy cleanup and a long service life. If you’re going to drive this Defender daily you’re going to want some tunes, a premium sound system with Bluetooth and GPS is also included, so you wont be alone with your thoughts on your commute.

If all those goodies aren’t enough for you, they have a few optional upgrades to truly make your Defender your own. A Slimline roof rack, Massi rack ladder, external roof cage, and even a full-length lightbar are available.

If one of these Defenders sounds sweet, it’s going to set you back a pretty penny, with a starting price of $99,995, but hey, it sure is one badass rig. For more information or to order own of your own ECD USA 110 Edition, check out
