Suitable for RHD Pre 2000 Defenders (prior to TD5 Dash/Binnacle Facelift), a direct replacement for the poor plastic original Binnacle that is broken in many Land Rovers.

The Standard Unit is made from steel with a black powder coat finish. (Image 1 – main image).  If you choose to go with the Standard Unit a Bezel in anodised black or silver may be purchased at a later date if required.

For those of you with a Raptor Console or those wishing to upgrade, a Deluxe version is available with an anodised aluminium bezel, available in Black or Silver to match and complement your existing Raptor Console (Images 2 & 3). It is also aesthetically pleasing and gives your gauges a slightly recessed look.

Image 6 – Optional Switch Plate. This is the replacement for the original Switch Plate located down at your right knee in a Defender, available in anodised silver or black.  The hole cut-outs are: 31mm height, 23mm width. Please note this Switch Plate is not suitable or available for Carling/Carling Type Switches.

Binnacle for RHD Post 2000 vehicles (TD5 with Dash/Binnacle Facelift).   Please note that our Binnacle for this does not have the illumination on the heater controls.  If you wish to purchase our Post 2000 model please place your order via the website as for Pre 2000 and leave a note when prompted to let us know that you require the Post 2000 version.  If in doubt please email a photo of your dash and we will confirm which model you require.


Although this Binnacle will connect to the Plastic Binnacle in your Landrover we highly recommend the use of the steel Raptor Binnacle Mount.

No more rattling dashboards, no more broken plastic tabs.

PLEASE NOTE: If you wish to purchase the Raptor Binnacle BEZEL ONLY, they are available here.

    Bought a mount a few months again and recently bought the binnacle, both extremely good quality well engineered. They made a big difference to the looks of the vehicle dash. Would throughly recommend these products to any one
    . First class all round. Well done Raptor!

    Bought both this and the mount to replace the usual broken items in my Defender, and am very impressed with both. Quality is first rate, fit perfectly and transform the look of the clocks. No more broken lugs, no more rattles and no more clocks half hanging off. Top notch bit of kit !

    Great replacement,much better than original plastic
    Good service delivered on time no problems

    Fantastic direct replacement for original, great quality and finish that blends well with the dash. Only disappointment was that the supplementary dial blanking plate is too loose a fit in the aperture and needs to be fixed with a bead of black instant gasket, or you can always fit a volt meter as I plan to do. Despite this minor shortcoming this product still warrants a five star rating as it is such a vast improvement over the weak and brittle original land rover item.

    Bought with the new mount. Screws together nicely and all the gauges sit properly once transferred across. This really is a quality item which lifts the interior and stops rattles from the dash.

    this is a great upgrade. it has made a big difference to the cab noise.

    A fantastic bit of kit and engineering, I also bought the binnacle mount which is worth the extra cost. I finished it off with the silver facia and stainless bolts. Really is the business and a highly recommended upgrade/ replacement from the old plastic binnacle.
