year Rover used to stage a grueling rally called the Camel Trophy.
Teams of people from around the world are invited to participate.
These are pictures of some of the Land Rover Defender 110 who
participated in the Camel Trophy.

Close up of the pick head mount. There is a rectangle of hard rubber
pop riveted to the wing top where the front end rests against
the wing. The brackets are pop riveted in place.
This picture shows the way the top lights are mounted to the roof
rack and the top attachment of the branch lifter wires
Here is the front shovel mounting bracket. Camel Trophy Land Rovers
used the military style shovel which has the blade mounted closer
to parallel to the handle than you will find with garden spades. This
allows the shovel to work better in the confined spaces under
a stuck Land Rover. You can also see part of the front
spring loaded attachment hardware for the branch lifter wires. The
spring takes up the shock of the initial strike protecting the
the mounting points from repeated stress fatigue. You can
also see how the Military Land Rover bonnet latches were mounted
on Camel Trophy Land Rover Defenders.
Close up of the middle shovel mount showing how the strap is attached.
You can barely make out the rear mount as well. The strap on
the rear mount loops under the bottom bracket and is not fastened
A clear Defender parking lamp is mounted to a metal bracket to
provide light for winching at night. The winch, winch bumper and
brush guard are SuperWinch products.
The winch hook assembly is a Genuine Land Rover part. The
tow bracket is a standard Dixon Bate 3.5 ton towing jaw
