Yes BFG did in 94. It was a poster out of one of the Four Wheeler magazines. I have it somewhere in a box.. On all the Land Rover ads, they only show black.

Very good!

Late to the party, but white letters out does equal Jeep.

My D2 needs some new rubber by years' end. What size did you get?

That being said, on an old truck, the white letters can be made into this. (these are old Goodyear MT's)

Those heavily offset steel series wheels on that series p/u look very interesting.
Those whitewalls remind me of the old pimp mobiles from the 70's!

I bet if you install a set of springs just to give it some lift it would radically change the appearance of the tires and the stance of the vehicle!

Yeah, I need new shocks anyway... My springs and shocks are original and was thinkng of some new bilsteins. It would be an opportunity to lift.

I did some shopping around (Costco, NTB, Sears) and found the best deal at Discount Tire..I bought 5 tires, mounting/balancing, 8.25% tax, and 5 replacement warranties. My total was 1530.07. There may have been a better deal somewhere out there but I couldn't find it. I have a pretty good relationship with the guys at Discount. Their warranties have always come through for me. The 5 mt's I just replaced came from Discount 9 years ago...
