Truck is a POS beater don't want to spend any money on it. As far as I know torsion bars are not cranked up yet. Doubt that any of the previous owners that I met would know how. I may do it if I can figure out how to install bumper and winch I have laying around on it. Loaded it up last night on way home from work and still passed a lot more people than passed me on M5/96.

You could always do the balljoint spacers from 4 crawler. That with heavier torsion bars(if needed) and a shackle lift should get you to fit the 33's.

It does not take much to fit 33's. Crank the stock t-bars (do not get heavier ones), some shackles in the back, and pound the front fender seam flat and you should be good to go (may have minor rubbing).

Only had minor rubbing stock, bolted a set of 32" BFG AT's on stock 2nd gen 4Runner alum rims no more rubbing and rides/drives much better. Actually has decent power on the freeway. Better than my 85 4Runner on 31's with same motor/trans it's prolly several hundred pounds lighter.

I know what you mean. I had a 22RE/5 spd. XtraCab with the 31x11.50s and did fine considering. My 22RE/5 spd. '91 4Runner wouldn't get out of its way with 31x10.50 BFG ATs.
