Hi,

I have a Samurai that is getting Toyota donor axles right now....the work is happening about 3 hours from me. The parts truck came with a solid front axles so it had to be 85 or earlier. Three questions.

One is what is the orignal wheel size?

What back spacing was used?

Did the original solid axle truck require a lift to run 33's?

Just measured my stock 85 rims: 3 and 3/8 inches backspacing, confirmed 6 inch rim width, P225/75/15 tire is stock. I ran 32s on my 85 before it was lifted, but that's the limit IMO. My 33 inch Swampers chew on the rear edge of the front fenderwell even with a 3.5 inch lift (Swamps are 33x12.50 on 8 inch wide rim, 3.5 inch backspacing IIRC). Your experience may differ ... HTH.
