The image data shows it was modified in Photoshop CS for over an hour, most likely to remove the forklift. I am trying to revert to the old version now.... I love a CSI challenge!

It is the p-shop. That is a club-member's d-90 being lifted by a forklift.


Or if you believe in fairy tails, he has the very best of air-suspension setups.

Haha, I just saw that image the other day and wondered the same thing. I decided they probably just photoshopped out a forklift too. The way the truck is flexing looks like a forklift test and the image appears distorted around the rear wheel.

'64 Impalas in So Central L.A. do that all the time... :-)

(The cost and engineering that goes in to some of those hydraulic systems is unbelieveable.)

Regardless of the photoshop, that is pretty impressive suspension travel. I wish mine could do that!

Hi CubeII, you're right, I'm a little bit obsessed with 35x10.5x16 so I asked to VTXS a pict of a 90 with those and they send me that pict (that's why I've posted...)

I guess so, I found your thread/question almost on every Rover BB...

It's that simple, they're just the best true "all around" tire IMHO.
I ran them in 285/75 (33") size and will get another set as soon as I can afford.
As for pics, try a search, you could find a thread like this
http://www.defendersource.com/forum/...ead.php?t=9346 where we spoke about SSRs and Jim C kindly posted pics of his sweet red D90 auto.
