    Andrea and Deke are taking this to the Round-up I had these sitting so I shot a fresh coat of Hammerite on them and mounted a set of 33x9.50x15 BFG All Terrains......I like it.

    I always wondered how much lift (if any) my pig has. That's the same tire I'm running.

    I know for sure I've got at least four more than I'm seeing in your pick. Any chance you could measure from the ground to the bottom of your window? I'd love to know.

    If you click my sig line you'll see what I mean.

    Looks great!
    Im fairly certain I will be going with the same tires on my 55 when the time comes, I will be using my newly acquired stock steel wheels.

    You know these are stock don't ya, they were the only optional wheel ever installed on an FJ40 80-82......they are .5'' wider than the steelies.

    Reckon the did not ever put em on the 55 though


    Measured the rig, at the center of the wheel, ground to wheel arch 43'' front and rear which surprised me
