Got this 2 months ago (about that long ago!)



then got it muddy:



then relocated the front indicators and sidelights and ditched the front bumper:



then did a fair bit of wiring Razz



and then spacers and headlight mods with 4 white led's per headlight and black wheels Smile

Yeah, i bought a set of 195/80/15's from 4x4tyres.com and a month later get told theyve no idea when there going to get stock, yet they took my money.

Once I get a refund from them im going to buy the 195/80's and fit them to my spare wheels once ive painted them black.

Im tempted by 235/70/15's but ive heard they may rub...

awesome, deffo go big though man, just put a set of 235/75/15s on my standard sj, it's made sooo much difference, and not had them rub once yet! My mate has the same size on his newer samurai, think it's a '94 and he cut a bit off his front bumper and they're fine (although you wont have this problem as you don't have a front bumper!)

195/65?/15s




235/75/15s





much higher too!  Very Happy

Good stuff!

Really want to get it done ASAP but I need 2 things, time off college and some cash!

Cash to buy the perches, ext brake lines, polybushes, propshaft spacers, u-bolts and a new set of shocks as mine are muffed.

Time to actually fit all the stuff!

yeh, spoa is the way to go, then ya can forget the 235's and go for 31x10.50's and in no time at all yer motor can end up in this state.

you can get out without extending the brakelines, just extend the mounts for the flexis at the front arches.
