    All my rigs are purpose built. From crawling to camping. I also enjoy a nice stock truck for what that’s worth. Toyota’s are the jam!

    Sadly, he responded that he doesn’t have Ford templates and can’t do it :( (@CBoy808, if I misunderstood you I’m so sorry! I’d def want them if you can do them). The other guy said probably, as long as I can get measurements. My main concern would be getting the “Ford” script just right though. So I guess either I’ll have try it with the other sticker guy from TW or roll the dice with eBay/Etsy.

    Just put Toyota or Tacoma decals on. Then you’d at least be getting something right :bananadead:

    The mistake was buying a van. The van has been replaced (in just under 6 months).

    I will no long be taking my family on mini Odysseys and we will not embark on some epic Expeditions! (<--see what I did there?)

    And anyone else with a prinsu or other type of rack for a 1st gen.


    How’s the wind noise and wind drag with the extra height of the rack.

    Thinking of getting one for a roof bar and camp lighting

    Question for you guys. Met a guy today who is looking for a lift, wheels and tires for this 3rd gen.
    - He wants to run 285/70/17s BFG KOs.
    - He wants a small lift, not very expensive. He isn’t gonna offroad this hard, and maybe not even that much.
    - Does not want it riding like a brick.
    - He likes the Pacer old school black bullet hole look.

    Thoughts on what Wheel and Suspension he should run?

    5100, AAL, low offset wheel 0 to +10ish. Not sure I would go with the heavy and expensive BFG, lots of other ATs that cost less and will be fine for a pavement princess...lol. also should look at a standard P rated which will save 10lbs a tire. This is my opinion...I'm sure everyone will have something different. One last thing...it WILL rub somewhere..

    I thought that with a 2.5 lift and 285/70/17s would clear the body mount if you got a rim that was close to stock offset, like the Pro wheels.
    Am I wrong in thinking that?

    I’ll probably get flack for this suggestions, but sounds like he’s the perfect candidate for a basic top plate spacer lift.

    Pros: cheap, easy to install, doesn’t affect onroad ride as you’re only raising the height of the vehicle in relation to the shock/coil vs lifting via preloading the coil, provides adequate clearance for larger tires (probably trimming needed based on desired tire size)

    Cons: street/insta cred isn't nearly as high as rolling kings etc., possible reduced offroad performance if the user decides to treat the spacer lifted truck as if its a trophy truck

    Mickey Thomson still makes some of those bullet hole style wheels. Its a respectable name in my book.

    Still think it will rub, maybe only in reverse. I don't know of any aftermarket wheels that run a close to stock offset, most are at least 8 inches wide on a 17"
