It's going to look excellent with a virtual lift and 32s. I would wonder if the axles would survive with 36s without serious attention. Oh and you don't have a problem, it's only because Dreadnaught is a company car that I am not much worse than you. When I had the scooby I was changing tyres every 6 months just to find the last bit of grip!

Spare wing trimmed so I can make a template
 

I don't want to make mistakes on the good wings I have
Should give me enough clearance 

 

Going to see Terry the Jimny doctor to get the rears done by a professional

Thanks to Buzzweld it's still intact

Have you removed the inner arches at the front Jack?

The inner arches at the front are 600mm radius.....cutting any extra out seems unnecessary unless you've gained extra uptravel?

The rears are an oddity......I have to cut halfway through the original rivets to fit my arches.

Keith yes front inner arches are out
With a bit of look and good weather new rubber will be on soon
Then i can see where they catch/rub on the front 
I'm sure cutting half the seem off on rears will be enough for now
We will see having a grass bank outside my front door for articulation testing helps
Snorkel sold 
 

Now time to figure out how to get air intake through bonnet

750s should have been factory issued, they look so good on there!

Thanks matey
They run really well and at 78db they're no more noisy than a normal tyre. all I can hear are the dyna beads swooshing round 
Still need to do some articulation testing. Having up travel of 5"rear and 4.5" on the front. 
Rear looking to have half an inch of clearance 
Fronts will need a bit of work to get clearance
