Looks very close. Bottom picture lucky I checked you can no longer use factory slot to get spare tire out. So cut a slot behind Lic plate if need spare tire.

Looking good. When you are done fine tuning that intake spacer take it to one of those race shops and have them copy it with tig welded stainless. Would look cool.

I've got Toyos and that doesn't sound good.

This fall I think things will be ready for me to get out of Dodge and hit the dirt. I'll let you know as it gets closer.

Yes return August this time try to move her up to bigger bike. Today I tried to put rubber gasket on top inner cooler Mr. ED. No good the rivets putting bumps on rubber gasket. FIXED spot welded it from inside. Then ground rivets almost flat. Rubber gasket glued on will post when I mount. So far over 80 hours labor of my useless time. Would have been way cheaper to buy your Great Jeep.

Today a friend showed up with a lifted Toyota SUV with a brand new spare tire bfg 285 75 16. Nice guy I took his spare and had it removed from his rim. Then installed on mine it fits with mud flap off it is a lot bigger then my tires. So I will not go to the 295 as more trouble to get odd ball size.

Perfect Larry!

The 285 series are popular with the lifted Tacomas on TacomaWorld.com forums.

I have the height-adjustable Bilstein 5100 shocks (up to 2.5" lift) but only set them at just under 1" lift over stock to firm it up as I am running 265/75-16 tires (1" taller than stock) and they don't rub at the stock height.

Looks good. Is that ride height or is it on the jack?

No jack stands Ed but only one 33in tire makes it look higher then it is. Next week I hope to go Ensenada shopping tires. My Brothers kids are here first time. With two other guys they have there 500s and 450s. There pro riders my bad luck Ed I cant even see there dust. I already took them on my hard routes. The elder is 30 just goes up one hand waving. Only Jack here is at there level.
