rovertym 2" HD rears -- Steve seemed to think that they'd both level it out (it's ass high now) as well as support the weight of the bumper/winch/heavyass diseasel. The fronts that are currently on there are +1 bearmach HD on the front, unclear in the back.

Big fan of Rovertym! I think you'll be pleased with them. What's the interior look like?

I had their 3" on the 90, loved 'em. Interior's good -- exmoor tracker seats, good door cards, no rust. The headliner is filthy, though and it could use some carpet.

I'm running Steves new SG copy on the front with Emu Med Duty rears, with air assist on the way (gotta keep those cushy rear springs)

With the Rockware bumper and XD9000 winch it's a little stiff up front but I suspect the will change when I extrend the roof rack and get a tent up there.

Since the truck will haul people as much as gear I decided a variable rate rear suspension would be a good idea, hence the air assist, we'll see, I might get it installed this weekend.

It's got to be a perspective thing. The Red truck has 285/75's the White has 265/75's both on Wolf rims. The white truck sits about an inch and a half lower than the red truck. The white 110 is also loaded to the gills with gear Very close if not more than 7000 lbs, the red is weighing in at about 5800 we figure.

You Know Doug I haven't done more than just Download those.. I really need to get into them and Edit them into the Video we took. Keep in mind most the trip was directed by my 7yo Daughter, It was her trip after all, I just came along as a Chauffuer. Thta said we stayed on the slow pavement (under 55MPH) and seeing as we were alone we did our exploring in the dirt on foot.

I don't know If I've shown these here before but here's a couple from Moab.

I'll get off the pavement a bit in June and then in July.. Work has kept me in the shop every night till at least 8:30 and usually all weekend. I hope to get the air suspension working this weekend and Start extending the roof rack.

Unfortunaly the clowns that painted the truck red have rendered the Eurostripes a permanent part of my trucks decor as they masked around them !?!?!

I'll get them waxed up and pretty and learn to love the retro styling..

Some colors they look really bad, but with that red they look really good IMO.

we are running the exact same tires and yours "look" bigger guessing its because the truck sits nose high. I put three inch lift OME 764's on mine and it came up an inch. Guessing its because the 4 liter diesel is so heavy
