Reviews

Arkonik’s perspective on achieving their clients’ vision is well-stated: “Restored by us. Reimagined by You.”

I’ve been a North American Spec Defender 90 owner since 2012, having shopped for the right one for 2-3 years. I love the 1997 Willow Green LE I ended up with, but have always fancied the ROW D110 for its capabilities, 4 door versatility and what I would call its proportional correctness. In late 2017 I began reviewing various build sites and quickly narrowed my choice to Arkonik. After pouring over the Editions, options, reviews and other information, I gave them a call. In short order Tom Maxwell and I hammered out a preliminary build and I became an Arkonik customer - Happy Holidays! 

More recently I visited the shop in advance of my build, which is scheduled to commence in October / November 2018 for a January 2019 delivery. My expectations were mixed – clearly high build quality, but what was the operation really like? I was surprised to see probably 10 Defenders in various states of build progress (more than expected) as well as 3 completed vehicles. Quality was off the charts! Rebuilt chassis, transmission, axles and engine with all new components – check. Virtually everything else, however, is brand new, with all components meeting and in most cases far exceeding OEM. Suspension, vehicle-specific wiring harness, lights, switches, rack, bespoke interior, body panels excepting the roof – everything new! Sound deadening – check! Rhino coated chassis and under body – check! Improved weather stripping – check! Incredible paint job – check! Quality control personnel pouring over and driving the vehicle – check! Truly fit and finish second to none. I have a good baseline with my NAS Defender and can honestly say that Arkonik takes the Defender to a completely different level - one that FAR exceeds the original vehicle. A special part of my shop visit involved meeting virtually the entire Arkonik team that will be completing my build – a fine and engaging group of craftsman and support staff dedicated to helping you achieve your dream Defender.

During my visit Tom and Grant Spicer arranged for an off-road experience at Eastnor Castle. Grant and new Arkonik team member Toby Cole and I drove there in the morning for an incredible afternoon of off-roading amongst Eastnor’s 5000+ acres and some 66 miles of trails. Driving a late model 110 we started out in the prepared course area climbing stairs, negotiating a rock canyon, experiencing a mixed fall line course (read driving on three wheels), wading and finally understanding the unique Land Rover diff lock feature via an area with varying degrees of traction (or lack thereof). We then progressed to the trails and enjoyed probably two full hours of climbing, descending, twists, turns, mud, roots, rocks and wading. I have a fair amount of off-road driving experience, but the prepared course area, trails and the LR Experience instructor’s coaching vastly improved my skill level and understanding of the vehicle. Eastnor is an experience not to be missed!

Advance notice / warning! After you submit your build specification, you will wear out the website reviewing the various editions for build details, of which there are PLENTY to discover. You’ll also be faced with 2-3 new Editions per month – via Arkonik’s newsletter - that will further pique your interest and drive you to refine your specification. Just when you think you had it all figured out you’ll be contacting Tom Parry or Nathan Davis for a revision. Not to worry, the current lead time is 16 months - you’ll have plenty of time!
