I need to lower the bumpstops on my 60. I don't know how much yet. I'm hoping I can use my floor jack to cycle the suspension high enough to stuff the wheel. Right now under certain circumstances, the wheel is being stuffed enough in the wheel well to limit forward progress due to rubbing, not to mention cutting my tires. I would appreciate any ideas as I'm not really sure how to attack this.

TIA

for testing, simply take the stock ones off, and add some washers/longer bolts and flex it up....once you've got a feeling on the distance needed, then use some square tube, box it in, and make a custom extention bracket.

Thanks woody. I'm hoping I can buy something more or less bolt on, for better or worse. BTB has some for FJ40's, any consensus on if these will work on a 60?

not sure on how yours mount, but I run front stops like those...and there are plenty of cheaper sources and options than BTB. ;)

I'll bet you can make/weld up a pair of easy spacers for $10 total....

Damn straight! I don't think I'll get around to it this season tho. I'm gonna trim just a bit from the front fenders, and trim the back as much as I can, which isn't much because of the rear doors. Then some 1" bigger shackles, and I'll easily fit 35's SUA. SOA will have to wait until I have the money to do it right.

That you Steve?
