Just a quick FYI for those who are relatively new to the board....with all the tech questions coming up, one of the first things people replying will respond with is "Didja check www.ih8mud.com yet??"

I've collected the online tech info from dozens of individuals...it's ALL cruiser related, and there is lots of interesting stuff on there, including links to the PBB tech stuff. Take the time to check it first, then come back with your specific questions.

Again, that's http://www.ih8mud.com

We now return you to your regularly scheduled posting. <IMG SRC="smilies/thefinger.gif" border="0">

you need a set of 28.5''x9'' co op grip spurs. They kick ass Or better yet ,I will trade ya my dirt diggin donuts for those little tires you have. I need better gas mileage and better road handling. In fact we can just swap tires in Clayton.

I'll answer each question in turn...

Nolen, the biggest tire you can fit on an FJ40 is a 175-70R14...anything bigger than that will guarantee body damage, and you may scratch that pretty chrome fender trim rings I know you pride yourself in polishing every evening...I also suggest a street tread, so you don't needlessly throw road debris up in your fenders when you hit the local high school Friday Night Drags....

Nolen, the BEST ever made mud wheels for a Toyota Jeep are the Dunlop SP Sport 9000. These are a excellent directional tire and are available in the sizes that will fit your lift and driving capabilities well. The smallest size they are available in is 195-55ZR-15, so it may require installation of a custom suspension lift...I suggest contacting Weenie Boyz OffWoad for their advice on suitable lifts. The tires can be reviewed at http://www.dunloptire.com/products/tire.html?tire=sp_sport_9000

Ironpig70...you can lower your FJ40 Jeep thru the use of block....adding a 4-5" plastic block between the leaf pack and the axles will provide you with the hillbilly look you are looking for. A set of the Dunlops mentioned above will also provide that extra racy feeling....also, adding a silver pinstripe down the side of your pig will easily shave .4-.6 seconds off your quarter mile times.

orangefj45wagin, the 640 pontiac is not a good choice for you...the factory 3 speed is just too high quality of a tranny to be wated behind this weenie little engine. Honestly, the best performance choice for your cruiser is to upgrade to an early carburated suzuki samurai motor. This excellent engine, mated to either your 3-speed or a race-prepped Muncie will provide you with some unbelieveable ET's on the track, as well as some eye catching looks from the people you'll see on the highway.

Nolen, if your truck doesn't spin in 4x4, then you need to buy a new truck. It's my only suggestion...only vehicles built within the last 2-3 years can be relied on to start every morning, handle the commute to the elementary school whose lunch room you monitor, and still take you off the beaten path and thru all those fresh rain puddles we know you love so well.

Gentlemen, I thank you for your support, and encourage you to write tech reports based on your findings so that I may include this important information as links on the IH8MUD.com website.

Do they make Neon systems for under my FJ-55?

Also, can you recommend a good hydraulics system so I can make my piggy hop?

OINK OINK! <IMG SRC="smilies/fj.gif" border="0">

Dan, I'll be flying into Atlanta this weekend specifically to address the neon issue with you....I'm staying at the Hyatt Regency on Peachtree, arriving Sat afternoon 4:30ish and flying back out on Wednesday.

We'll hook up Sat night and talk hydraulics and suspensions.... <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

Seriously, I AM in Atlanta this weekend!!

Obviously the Good Humor man was about tonite. But seriously I have a tech article that addresses how to change out the condensorlator in under a day. Will upload as soon as I lose Newbie status. <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">
