    Cool!

    Couple questions:

    Do they rub?
    Why did you take off the front fender covers?
    Did you use spacers?
    Are you using rods to lift it?
    Why is the tire air downed all the way?

    I guess that's more than a couple;)

    Tires look great!

    So Flares are off because the front bumper is as I am doing a 2014+ Facelift.
    I have 2.5" adjustable rods from Toddco and a Gap IID
    - Currently set at 2.5" front and level in the rear..otherwise it would typically be higher in the rear. I then lowered the vehicle down 0.5"" inches in the front and rear.
    - No Spacers
    - Bought the brand new tires and hit something on the highway and it slashed the sidewall... no insurance on it.. never made it home to the drive way. That is a flat.
    - They don't rub really... just a smidge when turning at lock backing out at certain angles. However, the frame horns have been cut.

    I got 285/35/40 on my LR4 and I feel that the correction of steering is obvious when going straight which is the bad effect.

    Wow Tomsquad - that's impressive that you were able to get the RR electronic dash to work with the LR4.

    How are you going to integrate Apple CarPlay? I'd love to do that.

    Ok - seriously, that's cool. Can you share the part numbers (source of where you got it too?) and maybe a rough overview of the time/effort it took to do all of this? This is on my project list but don't know where to start and would love to lean on your knowledge. Thanks!

    I'll post some updated pictures not that I have it wedged in better. It isn't crooked anymore.

    Its off a earlier model range rover - TFT instrument cluster. Some modifying and trimming has to be done to get it to fit.
    The cluster needs to be programmed to the VIN
    Extensive programming needs to be done in order to get it to work with the LR4
