A simple solution to a twenty year old problem. Discover extra legroom and extra comfort in just 10-minutes!
Designed to fit underneath your existing seat frames, MUD Rail's offer up to four inches of extra rearward travel on the drivers and passenger seats greatly improving the comfort, seating position and legroom in any Land Rover Defender.
Ideal for owners of the latest model Defenders where space in the front seats is at even more of a premium.
Contrary to popular belief, the removal of the loadspace bulkhead on the latest model Defender Station Wagon's does not improve legroom. It's actually the limited range of movement available on the standard Defender seat runners that restricts the amount of legroom.
By raising the level of the seat rails by just 30mm and shifting the seats positioning further back, MUD Rails utilise the extra space available behind the seats and guarantee to improve the front seat legroom and comfort of any Land Rover Defender.
MUD Rails crash test
MUD Rails have been tested according to NHTSA 571.207 standard 207, the established industry test for car, MPV and truck seats, their attachment assemblies and their installation. MUD commissioned the test procedure to be carried out by the Cranfield Impact Centre (CIM Ltd), one of the worlds leading crash test facilities. CIM clients includes car manufacturers, F1 and WRC teams. In tests, while the Land Rover seat frame deformed, the MUD Rails displayed no deformation whatsoever even when the forces applied were 20-times greater than the industry standard pass-rate. We can supply a copy of the CIM test data upon request.
Will the rails make a huge difference in my Defender 'Van' if I have the standard full height bulkhead behind the seats?
The honest answer is 'no'. Fitting the rails alone will create a small amount of extra room, since raising the seat a small amount moves the contact area where the back of the seat touches the bulkhead. However, if you're looking to maximise legroom and improve comfort we recommend you use the MUD rails in conjunction with the Bulkhead Removal Bar.
I have a truck-cab, will the Rails make a difference?
Again, the honest answer is 'no'. The Rails will fit, however seat travel in a truck-cab is further restricted by the back of the truck-cab overhanging the bulkhead. MUD Rails will make no noticeable improvement to legroom in truck-cab vehicles.
