I stole the tires off my 40 to see how they’d fit. I think they’re a hair big, they would be perfect if the truck had a 2.5 lift. I think it still looks/drives great and plan on keeping them on the 45. Ill find a different set for the 40 since I have more size options.

I will likely move the rear axle back an inch. I’ve done some searching on lifts, I know cruiser outfitters sells the OME kit but it’s pricey.
I’ve read that swb and lwb share the same spring size, can anyone confirm this? I also read that fj60 rear springs are very similar in length. I still don’t think I’ve found a situation where someone actually used them.
Can anyone confirm what options I have to bring the back end up?

Look at what @wngrog is doing in the Seminole build in the 40/45 section, and copy his formula for suspension.

You have a beautiful truck.

I think I prefer the acorn hub caps over the later model caps.

@wngrog has a 45 LWB and @jomelo has a 45 SWB RHT and they both run them on their trucks. I’m pretty sure they run Dobinsons on several of their other trucks as well.
