    Hello all

    I have a 77 fj40 with shackle reversal and 4 inch springs front and back, back with extended shackles to make her level.

    Was on a trail last weekend and boy she sure feels tippy at slow rock crawlin speeds, I have 35 inch BFG mudds and 8 inch black steel wheels with 3 3/4 correct off set, I thought if I went to a 10 inch wheel it might help with my footprint a little, went to Discount tire and they said they could not get a 10 with the correct 3.5 or even a 3 3/4. What gives????

    Any Ideas, and I do not want to use spacers, things get werd, I just want the correct wheel!

    Thank you

    Ditch the hardtop. It makes a big difference.
