Pictures of 110 lifted

Hi, wondering where pictures of a 110 with a 2-3" lift can be found.
Have been useing google images without much sucess for a month now and have to step foward and ask.
I have read on the changes for a 3" though really would like to visually see what the look of a RTE in specific looks like,haven't found any photos yet & really think in my mind this would be the look I'd like,though nothing to compare with yet

3" lift you will rip the crotch out of your pants trying to get in, 'specially if you have taller tires and with a lift who doesn't. So you should wear shorts any time you drive it but one or both of your nuts will fall out as you lift your right leg up.

No matter the height, I always rip my belt loop on the striker.

Google Iceland Defender 110 - Tonnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnns of lifted trucks that are specially outfitted for their terrain.

Also, here is a lift, although maybe not as crazy as you want.

You know you'll need dislocation cones, extended brake lines, and a ladder.

Here's 5" of lift on 35s. I'm 5'6" and have to climb up the rear ladder, scale across the roof, and then drop in from the sunroof. This also saves me the embarassment of continually trying to get in the wrong side of a RHD truck. To get out, I just open the door and tumble out.

The Defender is the only car that the body looks to be getting bigger, the bigger the lift and tires you put. Unlike the Jeep (esp the previous body style) where the bigger the lift and tires you put, the smaller the body looks.

Thank you...now have a better idea of the step up required everytime getting in.
Do you think for your purposes that this is a inconvenience to avoid?

I could be wrong, but daddymow's tires look a bit wide for 255 85, might be the angle though. I have a set of 255 85 Km2s waiting in my garage and they look pretty skinny.

I have 33x12.5-15 BFG KM 2s on black steelies from Lucky 8 with I think about a 4" backspacing. As Cougar said get the spring dislocation cones. I live in flat Florida and they get dislocated even with minimal articulation. Here is another picture from the side.

The cones are nice to know about with a 2" kit,nobody has mentioned this with reading 2 month now,lightly talked with 3" lift, though for money spent and things mentioned here might go with 2" oem or +2" terrfirma.
if a RTE set shows up on the board next month might go for that
