For a day!:p

Finally got my new springs on the 45 last Monday. Rides like a dream, especially compared to the 42 year old stockers that were boosted on add-a leafs for the last 12 years.:shaking:

This should give me enough extra room to add on the sliders under the cab.

Rear springs are 5" Alcans, one inch higher than the fronts, to accomodate camping loads without squatting. Also helps when the aux tank is full.

Well, I spent Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday wondering just how much room I've got under the sheetmetal with all that lift. 37s? 39s? I dunno, just looks like a heck of a lot of room.

Called my boy Thursday and told him to pull the 35s off the K5 for a look-see at how the other half of the landcruiser world lives!

Whadda ya think?

Fronts of course have a bit more room than the rear, and cutting the wheelwells is NOT an option!

BTW, a big shout goes out to 65fj45, who inspired this. I was on the fence about lift options until I saw his 45 again at the 45 run in Sept.

When I called Alcan and they started asking me a million questions about specs, I told 'em 'just make 'em like Galloni's. They knew EXACTLY what to do.:cool2:
