As i under stand it you have put 37's on your r.r.? if so are the tires hitting the inner fender/ floor pan in the front under full compression?

when i install the 3 link the 35's hit so i put a two inch spacer under the springs to get the tires to clear.

You are always welcome to PM me. However, this may be of value to other Range Rover owners so posting it was probably a good idea. I did put 37" tires under my vehicle. I had to make new inner fender wells though. You will have to do major trimming of the body and or inner fender wells with anything bigger than a 33" tire if you have decent flex. I had to cut a LOT with 33" tires even!

Way,
I bit the 33's as you have found out. You gonna come up for a :beer: and have a trimming party? I could use your eye. Bill and I are running Moab in March, you wanna come? I'll bring my laptop so you can work.....LOL.

PS.

I close on the 28th on the old property, so we might need to talk some beeswax in the future.

I'll let you know. I am still at the office now! (taking a quick break while I am printing). Been super busy lately. I am didn't schedule any appointments during the week of EJS, so I will be in Moab then. Not sure if I want to take another week off or not.

Let me know if I can offer any advice on fender trimming other than "go big or go home!"...

Give me a call if you want to talk beeswax

:) Way

when you say you made new inner fender let me get this clear or if have some pic. you could post.
what i am calling inner fender is lower part of the fire wall where it starts to turn in the floor and the part that is behind the battery.
i also will rub lightly in the rear wheel wells under full stuff.

just an observation but drew i must say that your rear suspension has the worst rear steer i have ever seen, i think its time to look into redesign.





this one really shows off the angle of the rear steer-


:eek:

John and Adam,
When do you both plan on being in Moab? I just got back but might be able to go again in March. Not sure. I need to fix a few things from my last trip. I will post some pics of the "mods" from the trail later today. Good news is the Drivetrain keeps taking a beating and doesn't miss a beat.

BTW, when your truck hits around 55 degrees off-camber it kind of feels weird! The front bumper was the only thing keeping me from going over. I should have a pic of this as well later this week.

Adam Check. I am assuming that is Green Rovers vehicle correct? Any more pics of the suspension on your hard-drive?

I will try. Haven't taken any pics for a while. I basically relpaced the inner fender wells with 18 gauge sheet metal that was cut with a nibbler. The inner fenders now go further inside of my vehicle, thus making more room for tire stuffing. I'll try and take some pics this Saturday.
