Im a little new to this forum, I spend alot of time on IH8MUD but now that I have recently purchased an 89 hilux I think this might be a better resource for information regarding this little truck. Anyways, Hello
So, for my new project truck (4 door shortbox hilux) I will be running my 60 series drivetrain once I get it swapped over. Which includes 39.5" Irok's.
I would like to keep the body mostly stock though I do plan on opening up the rear wheel wells, and maybe hanneman square top front fenders at a later date.
Problem is, where and how would I locate a full sized (but maybe not width) spare tire, and still keep the functionality of the box? I'd prefer to have a full size spare and not have a baja style rack that esentially makes the box useless for space. The rear swingout idea isnt bad but makes it almost impossible to transport anything with the tailgate down. A rear rack isnt a bad idea but gives a high COG. Installing it underneath the truck... Well no point explaining that.
Any interesting suggestions, or better yet pictures?
