2008 sport blackout

So, we had a local want to blackout his 2008 sport and put 33's on it so this is the work that we did and how it turned out. I didn't like the idea when we started but it turned out awesome. We blacked out the headlights, taillights, grill, wheels, handles, rear trim and switched out the turn signals, adjusted the height sensors and trimmed the inner wheels to clear the 305's.

I like it more than I thought I would, but it needs a black interior!

I agree, to both! I thought we were going to ruin it but it turned out pretty cool.

Wow! Did you put a lift on it at all? Are those 33"s? What size tires and what brand? Also what rims are those? Looking at new tires for my full size supercharge and may ditch the summer tires for a more aggressive thread.

Like you guys, I liked it more than I thought I would... Great job!

They are the stock wheels that where on it,just had them blasted and powder coated flat black. I can pull the specs on the tire size tomorrow. They are like a 305/70/19 or something like that, not sure on make, I will get that tomorrow. As for the lift we just put a new height sensor on it to raise the stock ride height.

Ah, 19s... Sadly I can't go lower than 20s on mine due to the brembo brakes on the S/C. I do need tires soon and thinking about putting the Johnson Rods on for additional lift and putting more aggressive tires. I really like the thread pattern on those and I'm sure they come in 20's.

I love the fact that you can lift a RR, RRS or LR3 for much cheaper than their coil sprung counterparts!

General Grabber AT 2 305/50 r20 but FYI we also put on 1.25" wheel spacers.

Those are 20" Wheels. They are the '09 S/C or '10 HSE Lux wheels. They also came as a No-Cost option on some later year Sports including '13s. If I remember correctly, Land Rover calls them Style 3.

The Sport Came Out Great! I love it! I have to say, as great as the newer body styles look stock, they really look great with more aggressive tires!
