Alloy+Grit was born out of this same passion, answering Land Rover enthusiasts’ call for their own independent publication. Our mission is simple: we capture the allure of these fascinating vehicles, the exceptional people who own them, and the spectacular places they travel.

Our name reflects the two essential elements we see in a life filled with Land Rovers. Alloy – quite literally, because aluminum alloy has been a unique part of Land Rover’s makeup from the beginning is still a defining element of the brand today. Grit – not only for the dusty kind that you pick up by taking the road less traveled, but also for the kind of intestinal fortitude that takes Land Rover vehicles and their owners to the ends of the earth.
