    Looks good. Is it actually going to go off road?

    I'm not against lifting vehicles, but it does seem the thing people rush to do -- why?

    Cheers mate I converted to coils because it would sometimes drop onto the bump stops. And also to allow the 33" tyres to fit under the arches.
    As for off roading... I do take it but I'm rubbish at it haha!

    Stripped down the sunroof mechanism today, it closes OK but very lazy opening, could this be a motor issue? Also fitted the steering damper...

    Just looking at your spare in that pic. What'll you do if you get a puncture? :(

    Scrubs up nicely!

    Yeah she does with some help from the minger filters on instagram! As for a puncture I do have a spare that's similar to these but not as big. Need to get one really, thanks for the jinx

    Hi Greg,

    I'm new to the forum, I have just fitted some 33/12.5R15 with a 15x10J ET-32 rim which looks to be the same as yours..? I'm trying to find wheel arches that will suit but I'm finding it quite difficult. Was just wondering what arches you've used, are they D1 arches? Thanks :)

    Example piccy attached

    Hahaha, thanks for getting back. I bought and fitted mine already. :D

    Quick question though, how did you manage to fit the rears so they look right? I found that mine taper down on the back slightly, otherwise you could see the inner arch

    Also interesting to see yours sits lower on the front too, I thought my springs had sagged, lol
