Have been toiling with the idea of getting bigger tires for my 62 series Land Cruiser which currently is all stock and has 31X10.5X15 ATs with 3B under the hood...purpose is to enhance the rig's offroad capability, mine is not a daily workhorse and is only sparingly used for weekend offroading...
I am leaning towards 33X10.5X15 MTs but for that I am sure I'll have to get some sort of a lift which puts me into getting advice from all the experts on this forum. Should I go for a body lift, should I go for a Spring Over Axle (SOA) conversion or is there any other simpler way...
So here are the questions:
1. Is taller really better as far as negotiating the dreaded mud pits etc
2. If yes than what would be the simplest way to achieve it for using 33X10.5X15 MTs
3. Would 3B loose enough grut to sustain the new planned shoes for my rig
4. Would I have to re-gear my rig for optimal performance in the new setup etc. etc. etc.
From the little reading that I have done, it seems that body lift is probably easier since one only has to get taller spacers (if thats what they are called) installed at all the 12 body to chasis mounting points and much cheaper than SOA...
Looking forward to the valuable input of all the experts!Similar Threads:
