No pics to hand I'm afraid but I have a friend who bobtailed a rangie and used defender eyebrows on the wheel arches. They suited it well and did the job.

The bonus of course is you can pick up a second hand set for about

Hi Jim

I have a Rangie fitted with 265's

But I've got a 2" lift + a 40mm body lift

I don't have spacers and don't need too

Just get the right off set wheels

And they go under fine

You don't say what you've got fitted

Will try and get some pics this weekend

Hello Jim,

I had a RRC a while ago and fitted 235/85/16 BFG Mt's to it, they looked really great under the arches, I also fitted wheel arches, did not use any spacers but did cut away some of the wings, if you send me you email address I'll email you some photos,
Cheers,
Ron.

You are going to need either spacers or off set wheels or the tyres are going to foul the radius arms and the steering lock will be very poor. You could get away without arches if you use the above - just!
