Wikid, what offset and backspacing are you running on the white FJ?I have no idea and don't understand why this would be sensible for a off-road vehicle. Rough ride, not practical, not as functional. Since it doesn't make sense to me. I don't see this as cool either.
But hey to each his own. Some people like it.
You may want to check with the wheel manufacturer to see what the backspace is. It looks like a wide rim, you may have some chopping to do
I missed this post in my last replyWikid, please explain. I always appreciate input. I see that most people here have 3-6" lifts and wider backspacing. Is this much more than normal? It didn't look much more severe than the other forum members, but I would love more details from you.
BC, Thanks for all of your input. All is welcome and appreciated.if you like the 'look' of a 6", you can achieve that look with a 3" lift. I know many people running 35" tires on a nice 3" lift. What makes it 'look' like a 6" is that they install Bushwhacker fender flares or remove the stock fender flares entirely. It always makes me do a double take when I park next to them. Looks like it is so much higher, when infact it is just more visible space between the tire and the fender edge.
And with a 3", like Wikid said, less issues, no big differential drop bracket (that loses that clearance you want with a lift), and just as functional as any 6" lift on any obsticles I have ever seen both take....possibly more functional being a lower center of gravity.
Just my 2 cents.
GREAT info!You will gain more fenderwell clearance with a 6" and more on the belly, but...you're rear axle will be just the same (per the tire size) and you will have a diff drop bracket on the front...so no more clearance on the front than with a 3" lift and no diff drop bracket. Maybe a tad...but not 6" versus 3" of clearance.
Please explain the 'hastle' you have referred to Wikid. I don't know enough about lift maintenance to have a clue!I running 3" Overland Warehouse/Radflo with a 1" Toytec body lift. Body mount chop and 35" tires with no rub . You will have much less hastle with a 3"
You do not gain two inches of ground clearance with a tire diameter change of 33->35, you gain 1inch.GREAT info!
But... I can easily put 35" tires on a 6" lift, so I would gain 2" there (over 33") as well, correct?
(just checking all the facts. Thank you so much BC)
