      I have never been a fan of the land Rover in stock form. But I am hooked on these

      I might have to build a "French " one for myself

      Here the other versions:

      Retro


      Alpine

      Yes, I believe it is. It is better than the usual metal damage multipliers though in that it will be one of the few things on the truck that wont corrode or rust away.



      D90s are cheap. Find one, import, do the work yourself and save some money. These look stupid. 18" wheels? Really?

      18s are the stock size on Discos and RRs in the later years, like mine. Not an oddball stupid big size.



      I can see them working just fine on D90s.
      I love cars, but the problem is they are like schroedinger's hobby. They're always in a quantum superstate of being both awesome and a huge waste of time and money... until observation momentarily forces them into one state or another.

      Is importing one cheaper than buying a US version?

      P38s and D2s are more mall crawler than off road. Most people who wheel P38s and D2s run 16" wheels. Im not saying it woulnt work but that they look just plain stupid in on a D90/ D110.

      To me they still look tiny on the P38 and D90s as well. It's not like they are chrome 22s.

      If it's been updated with a ton of new parts to ''update'' the look they'll still deny you importation. I've seen it happen many times. UK dealers know these are hot stuff in the US and will play into this market to make them attractive to US buyers.
