WOWSERS! I'm think 285/70/r16 on 8 inch 0 offset rims (from an 80) with this suspension kit - http://www.ironman4x4.com/products/...onstant-load-with-foam-cell-shocks-lwb-diesel305/70 R16 on about -35 offset 16x10
Taking a look at roughtraxSteer clear of Milner’s bushes and UJ joints absolute garbage . I think the UJ I had from them lasted 6 months.
All my bushes are from polys from Roughtrax and perfectness exceptionally well for a fraction of the cost for Toyota. The ones on the rear axle have been on for 5-6 years of abuse in North Africa mostly off road so far.
Yeah sounds about right... might chuck some 30mm spacers on too... i never worry too much about the "it'll kill your bearings" thing... I kill bearings quicker than spacers can!Its not necessary the mrs 90 has those tyres on her 90 with a 2 inch suspension lift but her 16x8 wheels are a minus 35ish offset . Had to remove mudflaps and we all trim the metal seam inside the arch .
Just remembered 285/75 with a zero offset rim touched the chassis on full lock , IFS likes a big offset i've found .
It's pretty much why I've gone with the 90. It's a mate's old truck that he got for next to nothing a year+ ago, we knew it had some rot but it just needed to do a year or so. We limped it through the MOT by lashing up the rear axle and sorting the worst of the underside body rot but he finally decided a 9 seat transit was better for his job and sizeable horde of children I was so impressed with how the 90 performed off road (he's an outdoor instructor) and how bullet proof it seems to be (even more so now I know the rear locker didnt exist!!) that I decided to have it off him!Sad fact is the 90 series is hugely underated its very capable and a lot more nimble than the 80 , front diff might be a weak point (certainly not strong enough to support a locker) but nobody ever went somewhere i couldn't follow .
Would i swap my 21 year old 90 for a brand new 120 - never , i could and i would ........ if they built something better than what i got .
