    As far as I know it was kept in the garage. But it is fairly humid in their province and has been raining a lot. The rust is very light, I can scrape it off with my finger. Nothing a quick sanding wont take care off. It won't see any more moister till its painted.

    Hey PP, How did those wheels mount up? I am picking up a set today for my first gen (stock, no lift) and am curious if I will need spacers. Will be running 265-70 tires. They are off a '12 FJ but look the same

    Also this is my first post WEEEE!

    The tires will probably rub the frame at full lock. With a 3" lift I still rub, but the trail grapplers have chunky side walls. I plan on running 1" wheel spacers. What tires are you putting on? The less aggressive the less they'll rub.

    With the stock dunflops you might be okay. I don't have spacers at the moment, It only rubs at full lock.

    Got in on the Bora wheel spacer group buy, picked up 4 0.75". Looks much better and no more frame rubbing at full lock.

    Got a good price on some KM2s. I need more lift, they rub like crazy just driving around the city.

    Got rid of the trail grapplers since I didn't need them anymore. Also wanted something quieter and better on fuel for city/hi way driving. 285/70R17 BFG Rugged Terrian P rated.

    It's home when not on the truck. I love the low ceiling height in my garage...not.
