I’d be interested in some pics of your truck, I bought my ‘95 HZJ80 bone stock European spec, whatever that means...

It had no over-arches and was running on 235/80/16 tyres on stock (very rusty) steel wheels. The road holding was so bad even though the road biased tyres we’re in good shape, I had to fit something wider, so I went for 305/70/16 on 10” rims. The offset is -20, so unless I fitted some arches, the truck would plaster itself in mud offroad, and anyway, it was well illegal with protruding tyres. Fitted a full set of Mr T arches & mudflaps, along with a 4” suspension lift, springs & shocks...

It didn’t stop there....:lol:

as seen before purchase...
