1988 IFS 4Runner 2" Body Lift 1" Ball Joint spacers 34 x 10.50 15 LTB Super Swampers 33 x 10.50 15 Thornbirds SS Locker in rear open front A/C converted to on board air rock slider/running board/air tanks
Not much to say about my rig its just simple and effective. I had to hammer back the floor boards in the front wheel wells to make a bit more room for the 34" LTB's because they measure a full 33.4" in height where as a 33 is a inch shorter (32.2"). Other than that I can't belive how well 33 & 34 inch tires fit with only 2" of lift.
I really like the LTB's for there price, size and traction but they wear fast due to a very soft rubber compound. They have a 4 ply side wall and 6 ply's under the tread surface so when aired down and with the soft tread compound they conform to surfaces really well. The Thornbirds on the other hand are very hard so they last longer but it makes traction very poor. I live in SD so during the winter months the Thornbirds really suck. Not very snow friendly. They are a 6 ply tire that runs from bead to bead so aired down the side walls don't flex much at all. The other disapointment is with the 10.50 size the largest lugs are very small compaired to other size Thornbids. I'll never buy these again.
