Thanks for the pic it helps out alot, I have a 1gen too. I think im going to need two sets of tires one for street use and some to put on when i go wheeling. Another question if i choose to cut down one of my d60 fronts and go with wagoneer length and run the stock toy leaf spacing isnt there a chance of the tire hitting the spring?
"Wagoneer" length doesn't make much sense on a D60 since waggys never came with a 60...Another question if i choose to cut down one of my d60 fronts and go with wagoneer length and run the stock toy leaf spacing isnt there a chance of the tire hitting the spring?
thanks, i hope to get it wheeling alot this summer.From what i read about you can cut the long side of the d60, and ude the inner axle from a wagoneer so there would be no custom axle. Thats what i ment or refered to when i said wagoneer length. Am i wrong for saying this? Is there a better term to use so everybody would know what im talking about? ryantowry_81 Your yota is looking good.
they will fit a ford if they are pre superduty axles with the 8x6.5 lug pattern.not sure if they bolt up to a ford 8 lug but hummer beadlocks have 7" offset in a 16.5. ya there heavy but its a double beadlock. iv got a set im gonna run on my yota, but im recentering for toy axles and 3" offset. they look badass with rockrings too
Did I miss something? I had no idea Ford dana 60's had a passenger side diff, or is your 1st Gen driver drop.....?changing to 1-ton ford axles and was wondering what is the max you can run for back spacing on the wheel. Ive read about 5" but was wondering what the max was. I really want to run full length axles but need it to be street legal.
I have 3" backspaced Hummer rims and I have 4 1/4" clearance from the inside of the rim to the outside edge of my Ballistic hi-steer arms. So the hi-steer is not a problem; your area of concer would be the stock tie rod mounts on the knuckle as they sit further outboard than the hi-steer arms do by a little more than an inch.alot of weight can be taken out if you take out the run flat and mke a center or buy a spacer to make the bead lock work. also be concious that when using hummer rims on a 60 if you have king pin hysteer then you have to watch the clearance there, i have seen them tough and special arms were made, and are now offered by many companies.
That's very nice... But you still can't use a driver drop on a 1st Gen.YotaLay I had a neighbor who passed away and was left with a bunch of ford parts, he used to run a 4 wheel side job to earn money when he was younger and had two tractor trailer full of ford parts egines, trannies, tcases, full axles, a couple of chevy motors, and a few cummins motors and a bunch of other mics parts. My bother and I are using alot of parts to build my toyota up so that why they are ford axles, Also got a 78-79 for pick up which will be turned into a diesel hauler for what ever we need. I AM NOT SELLING ANYTHING SO PLEASE DONT ASK, I dont think it would be fair to sell anything do to the fact that he thought about me when he wrote his will plus he has taught me to be a pack rat.
