About Bootlid Tailgate Badges
On the rear tailgate or bootlid are various manufacturer/company badges or logos, model numbers and model names, including variations in engine, trim or specification.
These are usually made of plastic and or alloy and have studs that fit through predrilled holes in the bodywork and secured with clips on the inside of the boot lid or tailgate. They may also be attached with an adhesive.
The Land Rover bootlid tailgate badge is generally an aesthetic item although in some cases may integrate with the bootlid or tailgate locking or release mechanism.
Reasons for replacement may be because the badge has fallen off due to minor collision or through vandalism. The Land Rover bootlid tailgate badge is the ideal replacement, designed specifically for the make and model of your vehicle.
Land Rover trivia
- Land Rovers and James Bond go hand in hand. The 4x4 Land Rover has been in more Bond films than there have been Bond actors! In Spectre, the Defender SVX was customised with 37-inch tyres and more power.
- The Range Rover designer hated what he had made. Charles Spencer "Spen" King CBE, was focused solely on designing a large V8 engine, and then just drew a box around it to show where the engine would sit. It annoyed him for the rest of his life, and he insisted that he'd only put 0.1% of development time on the car shape. He also hated that they would be used for anything other than farming, saying, "...to use them in the school run, or even in towns and cities at all, is completely stupid."
- Land Rover made the 101 Forward Vehicle for the UK military. It was originally built to haul howitzer cannons! The vehicle is so high, in fact, that a step had to be built into the front wheel so that the driver could get into the cab.
- Although the first Land Rover was designed in 1947 (by Maurice Wilks), the company wasn't actually founded until 1978!
- In the 1950s, you could buy yourself a Land Rover with tank tracks instead of wheels. Known as the Cuthbertson Version, it was intended for use by farmers and was tested by driving across the Scottish Highlands.
