    I'm late on this but I've been too busy being essential...

    Just an idea... I found some Cragar D wheels and 205/75 r15 street tires... but I'm sure some knobbies would fit on them too if you like that style.

    How did you get the old stickers/decals off? Or did it even have any? I have a drafted TRD file to cut me a new vinyl TRD but don't wanna fool with getting the old one off.

    Old one was easy to take off. Just used a hair dryer and it peeled right off. I also used some Goo Gone.

    Something that if you talked about it you’d be like “idk may look foolish” but when you actually do it you’re happy you did. This thing looks sick

    Lol ya I got the idea from the method MR305 bronze rims but didn’t really want to drop $800 on wheels for the ole girl. Was nervous that the design of my wheels wouldn’t look good with the color, but after I was done I was obsessed!

    My 99 coming up out of the canyon from three forks hot springs in the Owyhee Canyonlands after a rain. The dust turns into a brownie mix that just coats the tires.97565F6A-C8ED-4611-A5A1-7353CBC252C7.jpg

    You need more wheel speed.

    Assuming it's a 2.7l and after swapping the thermostat. There's a little petcock on the passenger side of the motor that will drain the coolant there. There is also one on the radiator passenger side that will drain that. Drain and refill with distilled water a couple of times and run until warming up and opening thermostat. Run the heater, too, to flush the heater core. When you're done refill it with some "Peak 'Original Equipment Technology' Asian" coolant.

    Well finally got the tires sorted, some el cheapo Hyundai alloys and new 205/65/R16 tires. Much better driving now, no rubbing, no tires slamming into the fenders bowing them all out of shape and it handily did a burnout on the way home from the shop!

    thanks for the advice, it's the 3.4L v6 but still was able to do the swap and flush. the old t-stat is locked up and doesn't open at all. I'm glad I didn't blow'r up.
