I run 39.5 IROK's on my FJ40....rear was stock, now a Cruiser hybred centered with minitruck shafts, coarse pinion, cryo'd, and welded gears. Front is lunchboxed, PIG inners, chromo longs, and soon to be cryo'd knuckles and other tweaks. 350 TBI, 700R, 4:1 D300, etc...
That's a good thing to keep in mind about the knuckles, I'm sure the thing will break. How was the rear with the 39.5 Iroks? I'm not going to go over 36" tires, but it's good to know. V8 swap may or may not be in its future. I don't know if I'll buy this one, its kinda beat to shit. I wish I could find a halfway decent one for a good price, I don't think its possible anymore.
