my new yota

hey guys im new to this forum just got my truck so heres my first rig

its an 88 4cyl 4x4 reg cab runing 146k. Its got a 4inch suspension lift and i think 2inch body, its got 35s on the back and 33s in the front the head gasket and the clutch have recently been changed, it did make a noise and i had a friend thats experienced with 22re's take a look he said it was the timing chain and it needed to be replaced. Its got some body rust on the outside of the bed, its also got a hydraulic lift under the bed that tilts it. thats about it, im in the market for some tires the 33s have good tread but the 35s have like 20% left

Yea loose the body it shouldn't take much trimming at all to keep the 35's under it, plus it gets rid of the rust. looks good, have fun with it

A body lift does not affect the ride.

I general, double steering stabilizers are used on a show truck to look tough and butch, but don't really add value.

I run a single stabilizer (for an F-150) on my truck with 36" swampers, no problems.

hagger is right, with that small of a tire, it ins't necessary to run dual stabalizers, but there is no reason to remove it. it won't really harm anything by leaving them on there. just adds to the bling factor.

In my truck I origianlly ran the stock 4.11s with my 36s, was not too bad from 10-50 mph, but had to slip a bit off the line.

Now I have 4.88s, a lot better, decent grunt around town, lugs up the hills pretty good. But still one you start getting up to 60 mph you can feel it running out of breath. I don't ever use 5th gear.

If I was buying them for 35s or bigger, I'd get 5.29s and be done with it. But I got a set of axles with the 4.88s installed pretty much for free. (I sold my stock 85 axles for more than what I paid for the 85/86 pair with the 4.88s)

I was running the 4.11's with my 33's and it was fine up to 70. But a gust of wind and i was back to trying to get up to speed, new truck has 4.30's so hopefully thats just enough extra to be fine at 70

"'85 4dr, 4" lift, 2.8 multi-port fuel injected 2.8 from '86 Camaro (approx. 110,000 miles on engine), 904 auto, 207 case, 3.73 gears, front and rear hooks, 31x10.5/15 a/t tires. Runs and drives, needs an adjustable track bar and alignment to get the handling back up to par, but others wise drives and handles fine. This would make a great trail rig, it's what I was going for with it. I just don't have the time, way too many projects. Comes with extra set of complete axles, t-case, drive shafts, and a core 904 trans.

$450 For just the XJ."
