The art of establishing the most efficient storage system in your 4WD can often take years to perfect, and this mostly happens through trial and error. But also by having the right storage equipment /solution built by professionals and slotted into your 4WD,well this can just make life much easier when on the road. Storage in the TURAS Land Rover Defender 90 has always been an issue, short wheelbase vehicles by their nature just lack adequate storage space and so having the correct system in place, makes a huge difference. When we are on the road either camping or doing a photoshoot, having a secure and easy access system that allows us to quickly access our photography and film gear just makes life so much easier. One of the recent additions to our 90 which is helping to perfect our set up is the Defender / Series Cubby Box (Fully Loaded Version) from the UK-based Mobile Storage Systems.
The first impression on this unit is the quality and the skilled workmanship that has gone into manufacturing the unit. You can also tell from its functionality that the designers were Land Rover tourers /enthusiasts and knew exactly what they were doing. Although designed for Puma Defender models, this Cubby Box will also fit in pre-2007 models including Series vehicles.
The Cubby Box contains a main lockable storage compartment that is perfect for safely storing smaller cameras and chargers but also for getting access to other types of gear including navigational systems, your glasses, money and so on. The lock installed into this unit is drill resistant and incorporates an anti-burst lock, so if anyone manages to break into your vehicle they best come prepared.
Other features include a lockable radio compartment, a trinket tray, front and rear cup holders. One of the real treats on offer is the deeply padded armrest available in black vinyl, black cloth, and tapestry, for us this is a real luxury that just makes the ride in your land Rover defender that much more comfortable. All of these features in addition to two 12v Lighter Sockets, and high-quality Map Pockets this is a premium storage system that will last the test of time and probably see you and your Land Rover out. Manufactured in the UK the Cubby Box is a MIG welded with no spot welds hence giving you a stronger and pretty much indestructible cubby box.
