    I highly doubt you'll ever break a chromo in the rear. Christo was running factory axles in his "shortbus" cruiser on 42's and didn't break rears. He broke lots of birfs and the occasional front inner axle but I never heard of a rear braking.

    I mentioned this in the "what did you do today" thread, but my MTRs have been seeing a ton of miles. I've put almost 30K miles on them in the year I've had them. Lots of those miles have been offroad. They still have about 50-60% tread left but I can't be buying new tires every year.


    So last night I painted my FZJ80 wheels (been meaning to for a while) and put the 315's back on the Tacoma so the MTRs can save their tread for wheeling. I need them to last through one more wheeling season.


    Went graphite colored with the wheels. 4 coats of VHT paint and 3 coats of gloss. I really like how they came out. I'm stoked how they look on the cruiser, not bad on the Tacoma either.

    Adam, did you end up needing the extension for the rack and pinion steering or the drop bracket for the rad when you installed the 1" body lift? I am ordering one soon. Thanks!

    I didn't need anything for the radiator but I did use the spacer for the steering shaft.

    Thanks, always appreciate the help. Hopefully I don't need to move my RAD for the 1" BL either.

    The cruiser rims and 35's are the street tires for now. My black rims with the MTRs are for trails. However, I'm really liking how the FZJ80 wheels look on the Tacoma. It has me seriously considering running them full time on the Tacoma and getting a new set of wheels for the Cruiser.

    What backspacing are the wheels the 33's are on? I will gladly buy them from you if you do plan to get rid of them!

    I'm not sure what the backspacing is on them since they were on the truck when I bought it. But there is a decent amount of offset compared to the Cruiser wheels. The cruiser wheels are 4" BS so by my estimation I think my black rims are 3.5" BS. They have a pretty wide stance especially with the 1.25" spacers.
