Kinda Bad Ass

1999 Land Rover Defender 130 TD5 Double Cab | eBay

I don't like the aftermarket bushwacker looking flares but dig the color and a 130 on 40's is big. Mine is on 35's and looks puny compared to this.

It'd be pretty rad, right up until you snap an axle leaving the parking lot.

Wait a sec Zack ... Evilfij's Boggers are 11" wide - narrow = more better on Rover's - plus certain Interco's are true to size or even bigger

And that is a cool looking 130 - I guess if he is running he Salisbury rear he might be fine with axle strength.

I love Keswick....BUT are you *sure* it's Keswick? Below right is Keswick, this eBay truck on the left looks a little more minty.

I'm thinking it's a custom color, possibly done by Pedro.

Possibly... It appears to be Keswick in theory but it's almost like a bad respray or bad photography. Keswick is a bit different than that IMO -

I have 9x16 on the HCPU, but these dwarf my setup! And almost looks like a 110 CC proportionally...

Puke green. Not a color to look at when hungover

Haha looks like you beat me by a few seconds Laz... we have a Keswick truck outside and the color is definitely off on this one. I'm a huge fan of Keswick, it's the new version of a classic Rover paint

I don't want to like it, but I can't help myself. And it's only about 1.5 hours away from me.
The flares are used a lot out here because of UK laws regarding tyres extending beyond the arches. I didn't like them at first either, but even they've grown on me as I see them all the time now.
