  4. Hi Guys Excuse my ignorence her on this subject !!!!!! why put a lift kit on a defender. ..... the only thing lifting is the body, your ground clearence stays the same if you keep the standard wheels ..... in my opinion the only wat to increase your ground clearance is to put on bigger wheels,,,,,, Am i wrong in saying this? thanks Regards Richard
