      Sweet 80! You can find a lot of info on http://www.ih8mud.com. Personally I would recommend MetalTech sliders. BTW- you can clear a 305 tire on the stock wheels and suspension... I ran mine that way for about six months.

      Thanks Creeper, I have seen your posts on mud too, great site, that is where I got all the info on how to purchase one and baseline it. I am a little obsesive with preventative maintenance so I tent to go a little over board. Spent lots of money on new parts so far.
      Funny thing is next mods where going to be sliders, and was seriously thinking metal tech, and 305 ATs [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG] [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG] [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      MetalTech is the best slider out there for the 80. I think you can get them thru IronPig also. (That is MetalTech's east coast distributor.) Or you can make a road trip out to OR, I'll help you put them on and we could go wheelin!

      Here's a funny pic of my 4Runner:

      One of my tires blew out (dry rotted), and I have yet to get to the junkyard to get another wheel for a spare tire, so I was kinda stuck. I borrowed this 35" from a friend so I could drive home. Suprisingly, it didn't rub too much. Once when I made a u-turn, three times when I turned left, and a couple times when I hit a bump. It looked funny though.
      Deal with it.

      Mine is actually pretty small, 33" tires.
      I´ve done almost everything exept fitting bigger tires since I´ve been a poor student for a few years. But I´ll start looking for fenderflares and tires soon.
      I´m mostly focusing on my vdub at the moment.

      Buddy of mine is running 35x10.50's on his runner with no lift and doesn't rub at all, he had 35x13.50's and rubbed quite a bit with those though.

      I guess but the doors and top still need to be painted.

      Well once the door are done and it get mirrors it will be street legal.

      Got rid of my '92 runner with 3.slow and replaced with '95 with 3.4L swap.
      Here's both my 4x4's. Photo taken just yesterday near Delta CO.

      The runner isn't the beastliest thing, but it gets the job done, which is
      to get me and all my slope soaring gear to remote places to fly.

      Here's mine, just got it last week, so no good dirty pics yet. I did take it out a bit, but then it came home for the new car buff and wax. Now the mud will come off easier

      My 86, not much mud whopping around here, so I am leaning toward tha baja side of things, saving up for a baja suspension setup in front. I hope you guys don't mind a baja guy wandering around here.
