Im pretty sure Il go with Downey springs all around then get 2" shackels to have enough lift for the (maybe) 34x10.50 LTB's I heard that narrow tires are good off-road too so we shall see....whole truck pics coming soon too :beerchug:

There is a guy around here running about 2-3 inches of lift with Q78's...you could go that route.

Q78's? What is that sounds like an Infinity model ???
Goto www.intercotire.com it's a weird size it's like a 35.5x11 tire.

SAM-52  Q78-15LT  6  27/32  9.5  35.5  10.8 15x6.5-8 40 2750
I think the Q78's are only available in the TSL bias series now.
So basically it's about the size of a 36x12.50 TSL but skinner.

Oh ok I got you yeah but the only reason why i was thinking on the LTB's was because of the price difference when compared to all the other interco tires....but Ive been thinking and I may just got with the 36x13.50 IROKS....I can get all 4 of the with the on/off road tire warranty from 4wheelparts for 820 carry out...ill still shop around but so far those are my only options

Wow Swampy, you won't have to worry about any cows with that bumper...looks like a great start though.  The kool thing about the Q78's is that they are a bit cheaper than a 36 inch TSL and they have the deepest tread of all the swampers.  The word is that the pull like h-ll and they wear very well.  They would certainly outlast the LTB's and get you an inch or so more ground clearance in the process.   :biggthumpup:

Ahh, swampy, I don't know why I am doing your research for you, but there you go.  The Q78 measures a true 35 inches tall inflated on the rim.  It is recomended you keep them on a 6.5-7 inch wheel.  In other words, find some stockers with the backspacing you want and run them, nice and cheap!  4WP has them for 175 each, here are some pics for you to enjoy.

Here is a guy running q78's on his runner...
http://www.rockcrawler.com/readersrides/showcase/september99/

The money savings on the Q78's comes from the fact that you can use any 15X7 6 on 5 1/2 rim.  You can get those off any year 4x4 toyota truck ever made.  Steel or aluminum, your choice.

Ok I guess its about time to start this thread out again....Ive just been a bum about this project most of the times because I had no funds at all....but I got motivated again because of the Toy Jamboree here in Texas where marlin himself will be present :king: since I only have till January 19 to actually do something about it I will be doing junkyard fixers just so I can atleast have a decent wheeler....heres what im planning on doing my buddy Speeddemon (member on marlin) is hooking me up with the rear springs off his 88 I will be putting those up front but as for the rear I still dont know If ill be able to scrape up some dough for marlins but if i cant what do you guys recomend I do...what springs would give me the same lift in that back than stok yoters up front? I also have a buddy thats lending me his 33x15.50 TSL's SSR's :greengrin: I will be welding the rear for the jamboree...I dint want to do this since I prefer puting a spool but being that I will be changing gears down the road Ill do it for now....Hopefully I can get it done by the jamboree....Im also planning on bobbing the bed for then.....Ill start as soon as work permits and Ill make sure to post plenty pics :thumbsup:

I love the pic of that white first gen, I like how it's sittin.  Any info on it?  Also wonder how goofy the Q78s would look on an 8.5" wheel, cause I already have 2 sets of them.  Anybody have pics of some mounted on 8.5s?  Now get back to it swampy, not a lotta time if you're gonna make the jamboree.

OK so it seems that I finally got me a solid axle'd toy  :king: Its an 85 Longbed I will proly bob the bed the shortest possible....but that would be down the road...I would like to fit some 34' LTB's under it...what junkyard special would give me decent flex....im not saying Marlin spring flex but just ok or maybe even good flex...i was thinking of the 3" skyjacker lift and maybe a 1 or 2" BodyLift just to make it simple.....what ya guys think (ill get pics tomorrow)

the cheapest way to get good flex is with 63' chevys in the rear and toy rears up front. You need to build a front drop hanger to get the toy rears to sit nicely with a good pinion angle. 15' ranchos in all 4 corners and your off flex like a bandit. And with all the money you will save you can buy your self a dual t-case adapter.

You would be better off going with F150's than the chevies. They will give you much better flex and arent as long.

Thats not the only thing I did but aparently my phone dint send the pics I took to the online album so i dont have pics....I changed the spark plugs I put those NGK V-Power ones and got a set of Borg Warner cables....also changed the cap and rotor....at the end of this ordeal I was excited to get my 85 running again....so I went to turn the key and nothing.....I figured it was a dead battery ( no starter seleniod click or anything) also the truck has been sitting for around 4 months....so I went to advance auto parts and had them charge it....slapd it back in turned the key and nothing....lights turn on nice and bright so Im thinkin its the starter seleniod....Ill replace that as soon as I have some money ( :headshake: ) I also got myself a can of Seafoam and will abuse it as soon as I get the lil motor chugging again.....I got a Wix filter and Valvoline oil.....should be running smooth as soon as I replace that starter.....the exhaust manifold gasket is craped it leaks all narly I will replace that too as soon as money permits....beside that its a champ.....I will start bobbing the bed soon so wait for pics, and Ill see if I can get some yota rears to slap on in conjunction with the chebies in the rear.....Im just trying to get it in decent shape for the Lonestar Jamboree on January the 19 :thumbsup:
