Pics for Randy and to share

Here it is with OME 764 in back and 761 in front with 200lbs of junk in the bed, nice and level. Very worn set of 9/34-16 TSLs seem to fit fine, will test with flex after putting on the rear shock mount extensions. May need to trim front flares.

Kevin, could be the photo; however, it looks like your front castor is off. Seems like the front tire is not centered in the wheel well. Does the steering seem stiff or not as responsive? You can measure from hub to hub on both sides and find out how it compares to OEM, also an alignment shop could tell you too.
If your concerned that is. Like I said before, it could also just be because of the angle of the photo.

David, I think it looks like that because if you notice, they installed the d-90 wheel eyebrows on the series truck and they dont line up perfectly. Series have different wheel openings that sit a bit farther back..

Randy,


Fronts with OME 761s Driver side 12 5/8" Passenger side 12 1/4"

Rear with 764s and about 100 pounds back there Drivers side 14" Passenger side 13 1/2"

It levels out nicely with me in the drivers seat.

Measured by hooking the tape measure on the bottom of the lower spring seat and measuring to the top of the spring perch.

I also have a Designa chassis under my Swb. Series. The placemant of the center of the wheel on the front axle sits 2" forward of where it should be. Why? I don't know. I have Defender front fenders with the galvanized inner wells and holes for the shock towers. I had to cut the hole 2" forward to clear the towers. The vehicle has 255 BFG mud terains on it, and the approach angle with out the bumper is almost 90 deg! I centered the eyebrows with the wheels on the Series tub. Here are a couple versions of the vehicle.

Thanks Yousef, but I believe the Series rigs don't go up things sideways as well

My Land Rover is a 1964 and the first vehicle that I bought in High School in 1975. Series trucks get you close enough to take pictures of the Defenders in damage mode.

That first pic of the canvas top with the rolled up windows is just what I need for my Series truck when I get to that point.
