Along with many other Land Rover enthusiasts the team at Flatdog were excited when Arbil 4x4 launched the new ZEON™ range on behalf of WARN® in the UK. However when the product first launched, there seemed to be a problem for avid Land Rover fans, it appeared as if it could not be fitted to a Land Rover Defender. However Flatdog did not let this stand in its way, Ben Baker, Flatdog’s Land Rover Specialist explains,
“When the ZEON™ first came out we recognised it was a great piece of kit, but it soon came to light a winch bumper for the Defender to fit a Zeon simply didn’t exist, so we set to work developing one. The Defender has a classic look and style that doesn’t need adjusting, so we were determined to incorporate the genuine A-bar to keep the look of the original frontage”
As arguably the most popular Land Rover model in the UK, it was vital that a solution could be found to fit the ZEON™ to a Defender. As one of Arbil’s preferred and most technically knowledgeable Land Rover dealers, Arbil offered its support to Flatdog in terms of promoting the build, so Flatdog could focus its expertise in getting the part to fit. Stephanie Bergin, Marketing Manager, comments,
“The Defender LXV WARN® Zeon™, designed and developed by the guys at Flatdog UK is the first of its kind, showing off the full ‘Flatdog Look’. As with all our preferred dealers, we are always more than willing to offer our full marketing support in regards to builds and projects of this nature. It is great to be able to work alongside people like Ben at Flatdog, as although we have some great quality products on offer, it is dealers like Flatdog who really bring these products to life"
Flatdog’s customer now has one of the most impressive looking winch mounted Defenders in the UK. Arbil 4x4’s leading brands and trusted products, along with Flatdog’s fitment expertise has made the perfect combination.
