Yes I thought it was bullshit. Not a scrape or a mark.Pimping and driving are different things.
The wheels don't look like they'll fit well in the wheel arches. And as the guy said, they "had some rubbing," but it seemed to me that he tried to avoid the attention it deserved.
And the independent suspension can never imitate solid axles.
It looks good, but until I see it driving through the terrain the car was modified for, it's just a mock-up to me. I would really like to see a video of it in the terrain that it is said to be made for.
You could put a Hyundai Accent on 50 inch tyres and it would be fine.
Clearance always helps. It's a pity Unimogs are so wide, heavy , noisy , uncomfortable and thirsty!
My wife's previous 2 cars were Santa Fe's. Couldn't fault them!even better!!😈A modified Hyundai Santa Fe makes history as the first passenger vehicle to cross Antarctica.practicalmotoring.com.au
Not sure they were saying it was necessary for the tyre swap, but rather just a good idea to move it from in front of the tyres as it's in a particularly vulnerable position.Just to put 33s or 35's you have to relocate the oil cooler or leave it exposed next to the tire on the back side. On that 37 that had to redesign the entire system. "We had to sacrifice down travel and ride quality". 50k for the build?
Same location for the cooler but Grenadier has a lot more clearanceNot sure they were saying it was necessary for the tyre swap, but rather just a good idea to move it from in front of the tyres as it's in a particularly vulnerable position.
There's exactly the same issue with the Grenadier.
But you notice some much less "beat up" Rovers shown in glimpses on the same video. And there are videos of fairly stock Discovery 1/2 doing it...... I would think the IG should do it without problems, but more comfortsbly on 33'sMany marks of Rubicon valour on this 90. Not looking showroom fresh.
