Now building from ground up? Again? Or still? I'm not sure what to ask.

Anyway I was surprised by the spacing on the ANR1534s - they're perfect in stock form. I thought they'd need spacers and fitted them as you see them (and ran out of time), but spacers definitely need to go before the romp.

Yeah get those spacers out of there. The backspacing on those pushes them out perfect. Are those the same tires you had on the boosts or a second set?

I'm going to run 255/85s on my steels.

Nope, these came from Andy, mounted on the steelies already.

A few more pics.

Looks great Josh. What are the specs of the ANR1534 (width, backspacing, weight)? Same as the NATO/Wolf's but not as heavy?

I love steelies on a Defender. And you can pull axle shafts without taking off the wheel at least in the rear.

And what spacers are those? The lug bolts look really long.
