Welcome to the forums Ivoryhotlid

I am baffled at this black roof malarky - I live in sunny (not) UK and given the choice would choose a white roof over black any day!

I'd be interested to know how it drives with the 235's, especially if there is any rubbing. It's a shame you can't test them at full articulation too, now that would be a proper test drive!


No rubbing experienced in a brief on-road test drive, but it had a 2" lift kit fitted ($1200 quoted). King steel wheels were 15x6 with 0mm offset compared with +5? OEM. Tyres were barely covered by the wheel arch flares and speedo was borderline illegal too - probably not important unless your insurer is looking for a loophole. Seemed to make the car (an auto) really sluggish though compared with my earlier test drive, so I won't be going beyond 215. Will consider the lift kit though.

We have a limited colour choice here, it would be good if we had more choice for sure.

Thanks for this, can I ask where did you take your test drive?

I really appreciate the info, I can’t wait until we start to get add-ons here, at the moment we’re limited to some basic dealer accessories. I want to start with tyres (I agree with you, I think 215’s are the best choice), the lift and a platform type roof rack. I’m hoping someone brings out recovery points too.

A decent rack should put most of your hotlid in the shade and the vertical windows will probably help with the heat. I like this retro colour scheme:

White-wall tyres - excellent!

Wasn't sure if you'd love it or hate it, Max - it looks like a faux soft top/removable hard top if you squint a bit.

Anything retro looking is good with me. But the completely unexpected white-walls and shiny hub-caps on a vehicle designed for off-road use is... unusual to say the least. It's not wrong - at least not in my view - just very interesting.
I Love it!

The white roof/back half looks really good again like a sort of soft top. Very clever.

I wonder if one of those was mine... I'm guessing its likely given the lack of them on the road in WA thus far. I've only seen two others since January... they were both Kinetic Yellow so it may have actually been one :)
