Is your TT a manual or auto?


Even with the heavier and larger tires I have not noticed a power difference. BMC is no big deal but You may need spacers with the stock 16s to clear the upper control arm.
I have an auto, we would be trading wheels and tires. The wheels have a -6 backspace so they should clear. He's running them now with stock UCAs and says he's fine. Think I would be able to stuff them in there for on road use only without the BMC for a couple weeks?

Even though it is an auto I still think you will be fine on stock gears as long as you do not tow often.

I would go for the swap, I ran these without the BMC for a week, took it off road twice, only rubbed at full left lock. So avoid Turning to full lock. My wife drove it into the city and she was in and out of parking lots rubbing holes in the mud flaps. I had to do the BMC so she could drive it...


(On a side note; I do plan on a regear if and when I go up another size)

Thanks for the advice, will just have to think it over to decide if I'm ready to make that jump, the FJ is not my daily driver anymore so I have that going for me.

Bought a one way ticket. Paid for truck. Will get it home on Tuesday! Super excited for first time FJ here

Wife likes contrasting roof, so she wants to wrap the roof gloss black
