They only barely rub at full lock...there's not much room to move them on the front axle...

you have plans to change out to yota axles? Do you already use spacers?

Yeah I've got the 2.5BS wheels...which is good and bad. I can't convert mine to beadlocks (reversed wheels). The biggest thing is running the IFS hubs and IFS rear axle to gain the track width. I'm not a fan of wheel spacers...they add a lot of stress to wheel bearings, ball joints...etc.

yea mine are 85's that I have ready, My dad was nice enough while I am stuck here to put the rear spool in and front locker. I gotta send him the disc brake conversion as he took the dust shields off since he was in the axle for me. That and Find some six lug rims before I get back. I was thinkin of takin my 39's off my GMC wheels and all and just buy some stockers for the GMC seein how that would be cheaper

Here's my 87 tin top.....

Not a lot done to it yet. I did find a old rear seat and had it redone (my kids love this thing). Gotta get rid of those dang vampire fang shackles(bought it that way). Im right in the middle of trying to buy a house, so parts for the Sammi are on hold for a bit (plus I already have my Ranger and Explorer for wheeling).

I'd think they'd be a wee small for the chassis
