East Coast Defender Project Honey Badger

East Coast Defender Honey Badger

Posted in RIDES By

Land Rover Defenders have become even more of a hot commodity ever since the brand stopped making them early last year. The ceased production hasn’t stopped Orlando-based East Coast Defender from turning forgotten Defenders into priceless gems as of late. And their latest — Project Honey Badger — is their best work yet.

The Honey Badger — the second truck commissioned by it’s owner for East Coast Defender — was given the royal treatment — a 6.2-liter, 430-hp Chevrolet LS3 V-8 engine, Borla Exhaust, Ron Davis Radiator Stainless brake and fuel lines, Classic Instruments, Moal Bomber gauges, a Kenwood infotainment center with a backup camera and integrated wifi, JBL speakers with subwoofer, Ivory leather Corbeau seats with black accent stitching a full roll cage 18” Sawtooth wheels with BF Goodrich All Terrain KO2 tires, and LED lighting throughout — all totaling a mere $159,000.

The Honey Badger Project also launches a new transmission option via a T56 six-speed manual transmission, which helps the custom Defender hum from 0-60 MPH in just under six seconds. Learn more about the build at East Coast Defender.
