BLACK PAW 4×4

Land Rover Overland preparation specialists in York

Contact us

Before you head out there, talk to the people who’ve already been.

At Blackpaw 4×4 we believe Land Rover Overland vehicle preparation is a very personal thing in which there is no right or wrong answer to the level of storage and the level of kit you require.

Vehicle preparation for your next expedition

Whether you’re heading over the dunes in the Sahara or mud-plugging in North Wales, we can prepare your Land Rover to take on what nature has to throw at it.

We pride ourselves in building vehicles that meet the budget and requirements for the owner, not just ticking every box in the accessories catalogue. You can bring us your Land Rover for preparation, or we can affordably source a vehicle that matches your overland plans.

Being a Front Runner outfitter and dealer in the UK, we supply Front Runner accessories for all makes of 4×4. If you have any questions about Front Runner products please email or call us. We are also suppliers for:

  • Eezi-Awn
  • Big Country 4×4
  • National Luna
  • Campmor

We only fit equipment that we’ve used ourselves in the field, on frequent overland trips to Africa and Europe, so we know what works and keeps on working in the harshest of conditions. We also know that you rely upon the kit we fit, which is why we’re passionate about using the best products on the market.

Bush Mechanics Training

Ben provides a hands-on course for anyone wanting to improve their mechanical knowledge before heading into the unknown.

Ben has run training days for many years and delivered talks to organisations including the RGS on the finer points of repairing Land Rovers in the field. See the Bush Mechanics page.

We believe in the personal touch when it comes to working out what you need. Speak to Ben about your overland vehicle preparation today.

Land Rover expedition support and parts supply

We supplied parts and expertise to the owner of this Defender based in Egypt, keeping it reliable on regular desert expeditions. Numerous Land Rovers currently travelling the globe were built or maintained in Yorkshire by our very own Ben Stowe.

Ben has gained his experience the hard way

Here’s Ben carrying out some field repairs to a friend’s Land Rover Discovery in the Moroccan desert. Ben’s ‘Bush Mechanics’ courses are held throughout the year, teaching young and old the basics of repairing and “making do” in the field.
