Last bit to mention for now....
Like I say, it appears before settling or adding weight that the front gained 1.5” of natural lift from the conversion. This with stock height coils fitted.
The rear I have fitted 2.5” OME leaves and it appears the trucks stance is near perfect. I don’t have...
Alrighty, I might as well let the cat out of the bag on this because you all are going to notice it regardless.
I hesitate to post this simply because I don’t want to hear a bunch of opinions or listen to the haters.
Track width in front has widened substantially with the conversion. It is...
They are called trunnion bearings in the Cruiser world folks.
Camber is not adjustable on a Cruiser with a SFA. It is built into the knuckles. Although you can get caster adjusting bearings for the trunnions, however caster is not camber.
Yes you should do them but some of what people are...
@gilmorneau I think there is one exception for the RHD to LHD conversion. That being the HZJ77, it was never sold in LHD so to convert is the only way to have that.
Not such a bad job if you have a LHD donor but still a lot of work. Can’t be done without welding and paint.
If it was me....

I have ran many tires for this over the years, definitely sipped and studded is the best. I have even sipped my own tires, a set of Maxxis Creepies on an FJ60. Studded though to me means you need two sets of...
You will have to take the dash apart to the main wiring harness which is all of the dash to the firewall.
You will have to cut two holes in the firewall.
You will have to source all the parts to install a heater, close to $1000 from Toyota. This includes having to change your controls and...
Main reason I went with these was size. 255/85R16 there really isn't much to pick from in this size. I honestly would have went with Duratracs, they fit the owners uses better but those are not available in a 255. So I had the M/T's sipped.
Had an old friend in town so didn’t work on the truck much the last 3-4 days. Rear axle is all ready to go down on it’s own weight.
Working on final assembly of the front.
Knuckle ball before clean up.
