An armoured battery cable and an anti-roll bar at rear provide additional security and safety. Equipped with an in-car tracking device to trace the location of the vehicle in the event of a theft and installed with a sub system for superior audio quality – the conversions on this Land Rover extend beyond visual attributes with adept technology for fortified style and safety.landrover3
