New to IH8MUD -1974 - 40 series (1 Viewer)

Nov 10, 2020
Hi all! Excited to join IH8MUD! Purchased this 1974 40 series in 2019 from Napa, CA. Prior owner to that was out of Laguna Hills and owned it since 1987. According to the owner it had successfully trailed rubicon, dusey, panamint suprise canyon and sledgehammer. That said, the undercarriage hasn't been replaced or updated since 1987. Definitely excited to update this 40 and get it back on the trails.


Current setup:
engine rebuilt in 1997 .030 over, balanced straight six
saginaw power steering
RV cam
flowmaster w/ 2.5" exhaust
full centrifugal toyota distirbutor
4 speed trans 5.29 1st gear
3 speed type transfer case, 2.313 low range
ARB locker front & rear axle, 4.11 gears
rock crawling 50.29.1 1st gear low range
centerforce clutch

standard tune up, plugs, cables, fuel pump, replaced all engine gaskets
currently installing front disc brakes, OME suspension w/ bilstein shocks and new Dakota instrument panel,

Looking to replace the current wheels and tires w/ factory Toyota Silver-painted steel wheels wear stock hubcaps and 33″ BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain tires. Anyone know where I can source the correct silver paint color for the factory wheels?
