My crossbars are made with a larger overall diameter tubing and with a bend radius to match the rear double ladder and the windshield roll cage hoop (please note some of the images may reflect a older radius design) rather than the rolled radius design of the originals. I weld flange nuts to the rear double ladder backing plates to assist in installing the rear double ladder assembly to the vehicle as well as to the underside of the mount tabs on the crossbars and to the rear double ladder to make mounting the roof rack as clean and as simple as possible. My clamps are made from machined steel rather then cast aluminum like the originals as they were considered the weak point of the original kits as they were prone to cracking. Since my clamps are made from the steel, I integrate them to the crossbars with I think is much clean looking and ultimately stronger.All my tubing bend components are C. Mandrel bent, all tubing joints are pneumatic/hydraulic notched, all seam joints are sleeved, welded and polished. My backing plates are C.
Laser cut as are the mounting brackets on the rear ladder which are also C. All my mounting tabs are stamped. All my components are fixture "jig" clamped during welding to ensure accuracy and consistency and to mitigate warping during the welding process.
All tubing is cleaned and polished prior to welding. All welds are gas M. Welded (and I'm damn good at what I do).This rack will mount to all Land Rover N. Defender 90 soft top or hard top models. Some quotes about myself and my work. Whoever designed that rack has the visual sense of a poet.
I was so struck at how it's lines complimented those of the vehicle. Super clean and truly a work of art.
Everything else on the market looks clumsy in comparison. That person has an amazing sense of design. If you're going for a custom rack hit up Derek at Urban Offroad, that gent has mad chops in fabrication. Derek has done some custom work for me as well as facilitate me in procuring other products that he does not manufacture. I can assure you that my experiences have all been fantastic.In short, you can get stuff from Derek that is highly functional and looks pretty damn sweet too. You come highly recommended from the members of the Defender Source.
Heard about your work on D-90. Wish I'd found you sooner.
Did you seriously MAKE this? The rack and ladder are awesome.
Better than the original N. Thanks for everything; it was really good working with you.
Your racks are by far the best looking on the market. Perfect fit to the millimeter. Thanks for the custom work.
Your work is ridiculously accurate. I'm thrilled with your rack, keeping your promises and responsive communication. Thanks for all your help and especially your genuine interest in my Rover. Just wanted to let you know the rack rocks!It's well made and looks great! It performed faultlessly well loaded on my recent trek across the Simpson Desert in Australia. Nice job on the basket and attachments. Rack and accessories look great! Easy install and looks great!
The sill guards are amazing, (I'm almost afraid to scratch them up). Looks really good and very easy to install. Installed it myself with no issues. Got a rack from you this past summer for my D90 and I love it. Thanks for a great product.
The sliders I got from you look great. Derek, I just wanted to say thanks for the quality product. Really nice rack, it looks great.The Land Rover guys up here are really impressed with your work! The quality of the work done by Derek Chase is as good as or better than any others Ive seen (Safety Devices included). Id recommend his work and products very highly.
Just wanted to thank you for the awesome job on my Rover. It looks much better and more importantly performs much better. I wanted to praise you for your customer service and communication. Considering the way the world is now, those are traits rarely found, and even more rarely followed. So thank you, you have truly made a new and future customer out of me; and I'll be sure to pass on the word about your company and the things you offer to many of my off-roading friends.
Personally I'm very interested to see what else you have in store for the years to come, especially in the Land Rover market where quality custom parts (that look good on the vehicle too) are few and far between. So that said I don't know what else you have coming, but if you have plans to do things like rock sliders, winch mount front and/or swing away tire carrier rear bumpers, and skid plates; you can count on hearing from me again. " & "All the parts worked extremely well. Everything mounted super easy, held on well throughout all the various trail surfaces, and looks great. " & "Thanks again for all the help getting things out to me before the trip, and as usual your products worked and look awesome!
Thanks again for all your help, still some of the best customer service I've seen in a long time!
