Germany-based Nakatanenga 4×4 Equipment has been coming up with some awesome innovative and high quality 4WD touring products in recent years.We first caught up with some members of the Nakatanenga team at the Abenteuer and Allrad show in Germany a couple of years ago and we were very impressed with the wide variety of 4WD touring gear on offer. One of the recent products that they have brought to the market includes the NR-Classic – the 8×16 steel rim for the Defender, these classical looking rims come with the full TÜV approval and just look awesome, these rims are exclusive to Nakatanenga and available in the UK and throughout Europe.We were so impressed with these traditional looking rims that when our initial brainstorming sessions took place about the TURAS Land Rover build project our team unanimously agreed that these classic rims should be showcased on the build.

After contacting Peter and his team they were immediately on board with the build project, we will be covering this exciting build project over the next 12 months so do stay tuned. But for now let’s have a look at another simple but very practical storage solution designed by Nakatanenga for various 4WD vehicles including Land Rover Defenders, simply called the Nakatanenga Tailgate Organizer – Rear Door Trim System.The beauty about this product is in its clever design, it simply allows the bags to be quickly removed using the MOLLE attachment system,it is a simple but very practical solution.For easy access to your first aid kit, toilet bag and all of those other bits and bobs, all you need to do is grab the bag you need and away you go, and when finished just re attach that’s it!. MOLLE stands for Modular Lightweight Load -carrying Equipment, this system was developed for the US army back in the early 90’s where it focused on improving the physical carrying capacity on backpacks, belts, clothes and so on, thankful this system has now been adapted for outdoor and off road use. Attaching the tailgate organiser PALS base to your rear door is pretty straight forward with the product supplying the screws.

For those of you who don’t drive a Defender and want one for your vehicle, the good news is you can get them for a Suzuki Jimny,Jeep Wrangler JK, Mercedes G and in the following universal sizes 650x250mm and 740x350mm.

The awesome Nakatanenga NR-Classic 8×16 steel rims that will be going on Defender, just one of the many innovative products from the German touring gurus. We will be looking at these closer as part of the build.
