I just scanned a few pics of my first Toyota, 1986 Pick up, 22R engine. I had it for almost 10 years and sold it 6 years ago. Pics were taken just before the engine was rebuilt hence the spare engine in the box.

I got some spare cash to spend on the truck and here's my plan but I need to know if it will all fit together?

Wheel Size: 16X8
6 on 5.5 Bolt Pattern
Offset: -12
Backspace: 4
Bilstein 5100/toytec coilovers
Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac LT285/75R16E1 126P W

Would all this fit together without rubbing?

Thanks for your help

Did the deckplate mod today, also installed new spark plugs, NGK wires, Karlyn/STI ignition coils and replaced the PCV valve. The engine runs a little smoother now, especially when shifting.

Well it's hard to tell since I replaced the spark plugs, wires and ignition coils at the same time I did the deck plate mod. The truck definitely runs smoother now, especially when shifting gears.

I realized I need taller jack stand and a few tools I don't have before I can go ahead with the suspension install.

I did however install the URD short throw shifter. Took about an hour and everything worked as was supposed to. I really love the way it now shifts and the reverse gear is even easier to find than before. Very well designed kit, I highly recommend it!

I did some easy mods today,

Removed the little tab on the heater knob;



Bought black light covers to replace the flashy yellow ones;




Replaced the cup holders tabs, I used the wife's old yoga mat but I will have to redo this with something like rubber because the yoga mat material is too flimsy, need a stiffer material.



Also picked up my new wheels at the ups store;
