    Nice car Two89w 👍, About the tyres, I have BFG KO2 A/Ts and I'm quite happy with them. I changed the tyres before I did the lift (toughdog 50mm). But if I've given the chance now, I would go for a bigger tyre size.

    The standard tyre size is, 265/65/17. which is about 29". I checked with JobJane T-mart and they have the next size which comes to around 32" BGF KO2's (I cant remember the size). They will look awesome. And also the price is the same.

    Deciding MT or AT, I think if you are not lazy like me and willing to change the tyre sets, go with M/Ts. Get a set of steel wheels and put the 32" muddies on them. Have your H/T for daily use.

    cheers,

        Hi mate, the size you might be referring to is what I fitted to my 150 (265/70/17) They're not quite 32's, but pretty close. I'd be leery of going too much bigger than that without engine work- I've noticed mine has lost a bit of grunt with the size increase.

                Iron man Also on the 12th of march an ARB summit bar and smittybuilt winch is going on, and two days after that a 2.5 inch lift with Bilsteins and EFS springs, diff drop, strut plates etc, 100 AH dual battery,DC to DC changer, fridge sockets, secondary fuel filter, 50 light bar on front of platform, one 7 inch lightbar each side of the platform and a 26 inch light bar at the rear of the platform.

                I returned the ARB neoprene seat covers that didnt fit properly and got myself a set of "The wet seat" covers....much better


                Just have to wait for Harrop to get back to me about the front E locker and Safari to produce a snorkle and that should about it

                                Hi Two89w, I like the lights and roof rack I think iíll do pretty much the same thing if I can get a good deal at the 4x4 show this weekend.
                                Can I ask what tint youíve had put on the windows. Is it after market or dealership installed?
