The Land Rover Defender is an iconic 4×4 vehicle known for its rugged capabilities and durability. But what if you’re not much of a stick-shift driver? Here’s where the automatic conversion package offered by Bishop+Rook comes in.
Building an Automatic Land Rover Defender
Most Land Rover Defenders did not come from the factory with automatic transmissions, so they generally need an automatic transmission conversion to make them easier to drive. That’s where our unique adaptor kit kicks in. We spent several years of R&D to figure out the best combination of gearbox, controls, adaptors, mounting points, transmission coolers, and the right controls. The automatic conversion package is designed to preserve the Defender driving experience while offering the convenience of an automatic transmission.
Driving an Automatic Land Rover Defender vs. Manual
The benefits of converting a manual Defender to an automatic are immense, ranging from ease and convenience to the ability for anyone in the family to drive. We carefully designed our automatic conversion packages to make sure that the Land Rover Defender driving experience is not compromised in any way.
Driving a manual transmission vehicle is slowly becoming a lost art. When it comes to adopting a Land Rover Defender into your family, it helps if anyone can drive it.
At Bishop+Rook, we understand that everyone should be able to enjoy the Defender’s power and performance. That’s why we’re one of the only companies in America to offer the automatic conversion package. We use original Land Rover parts and genuine OEM components, so you can trust that our automatic conversion packages will make sure you get the same quality and reliability you expect from a Land Rover Defender.
An Automatic Defender The Heritage Way
When we developed our Land Rover Defender Automatic Conversion Package, we wanted to make sure the kit maintained the original look and feel of the factory appearance. Our system uses the same location points for the shifter, but instead of having a 5-speed manual stick, it is replaced with a custom push-button inline automatic shifter that looks factory.
Not only is it an easier and more convenient way to drive your Defender, it also enhances its value. So if you’re looking to upgrade your Defender with an automatic transmission, you’ve come to the right place.
