I want pictures of some lifted pretty high ones right now.

I am just curious who has the biggest lift that is on the board I don't want to see one that nobody knows the owner one that is among us and still looks good not cut up to much.

I know mine is up there but not the biggest I don't think atleast.



With 33"

Jesus, you aussies go all out.. I wish people in the US did more stuff like this..

Mine isn't too lifted yet. Here is mine, it's about 2 inches higher than stock (HD OME springs).

Could people please add what upgrades gave them the lift (and any upgrades that had to be added due to the lift (drive shafts, etc)

I think I mentioned this previously, but a few weeks ago, I was following AAXD down some street in Portsmouth, NH, when he called me on my cell, and told me to check my rear view mirror. All I could see was the fairlead in the middle of Jesse Ware's (BW Overland)front bumper of his Range Rover. He also has a pretty nice 110, and I think he was following me to figure out who else had one in town

yieldsign2, not to sway from the subject but I see you don't have the A-bar or brushguard and wondering how you attached your lights?

Originally, on my old 87 rover, i just drilled holes in teh bumper and mounted them there. The problem is these lights are pretty deep.. they are hella 1000FF. The result was not really being able to aim them off the ground 2 feet in front of me, because i had to drill all the way out on teh slanted front part of teh bumper almost, for them to clear the grille. I spent a couple hours a few weeks ago fabbing up some mounts for them. They are kind of a spread "Z" shape. Basically lifts them up and out from the bumper so that they can be aimed correctly. It could use some supports welded in for rigidity, if you are off roading or hit sharp bumps on the road they vibrate a little, but regardless they aren't "legal" on the road anyway I'm pretty sure, and it's not enough to mess with your eyes, at least mine.

Pics...(i made the brackets twice. the first time was with too thin metal - way too much vibration. The thicker ones are the ones on there now.)

ok BACK TO ON TOPIC :)

Thanks alot for the info. I am going to be installing the Black Magic which is about 2" thick and I have measured the bumper and it will work without the bracket. But that is a great fab idea you have done.

Truck's looking good too!!

LT230 Conversion
Very nice. Was this conversion a pain? Do you remember (and do you mind sharing) how much you had to spend in extra parts, and how many hours it took do do? Did you do the work yourself or have a shop do it?

I've got a '95 SWB and so far the BW works great, but I know some day the VC will fail and the cost to replace it will be comparable to the cost of a good used LT230, so I'm just thinkin'.

I really lucked out...I found on D90.org a complete LT230, RR linkage, and front CV style driveshaft for $450. Plus it was 50 miles from me and I was able to pick it up.

On a 95, its a nice conversion. You already have the D1 style center console, you just need the shift boot and rubber surround from a D1. Also need the window switch bezel too. I found these items on ebay super-cheap.

Your existing parking brake assembly swaps right over. You have to drill one hole if I remember correctly, no big deal.

Took about 6 hours using my friends shop and lift. The hardest part was figuring out the wiring for the shift interlock. What a PITA.

The first thing I noticed after the conversion was how easily the steering wheel turned...my VC was totally shot at 90K miles.
