I thought I would post up some of my 100 mods. I don't plan on competing with Nakman, and my mods should be a be more pedestrian for a while.

the first big mod was the carpet, which can be seen here (http://www.risingsun4x4club.org/forum2/showthread.php?t=14377).

I also replaced the rear struts for the tailgate. This is simple, but was complicated because the metal clip that holds the strut to the ball stud was missing. The vendor overnighted a replacement piece to me and now all is well.

Here is the old center console; it was pretty scratched up: http://i849.photobucket.com/albums/ab58/jhamilt/2003%20Land%20Cruiser/centerconsole_old.jpg

And this is the new center console: http://i849.photobucket.com/albums/ab58/jhamilt/2003%20Land%20Cruiser/centerconsole.jpg

Next up will be a 16" set of Tundra wheels with off road tires (tbd) and the 2.5" OME lift.

You cant do 16" tundra wheels. 18's only. Center console looks good.
Older 16" rims have 6 holes. Newer 5 on 150mm is only available in 18" unless you know something I don't. There is a TRD 17" available. Lexus 16's will work also.

Thanks for the clarification. I wanted 16s for the larger tire selection, I guess it will be 18s.

Jeff do you want my Tundra rims? Or did you want to get steel ones? I hope to go back to 16" rims this winter, once Nitto comes out with the 285 75 Trail grappler..

you still got the old center console panel? Been wanting to get my hands on a second one to cut up and play around with, moving switches and adding others.

Tundra 18" steels look good, but I'm biased ;)

Not sure about the other style(see below pic), but this style each wheel weighs in at 39lbs, that's 10lbs more then your standard LC 18" alloys.

For keeping a 33" tire height, I'd just try and pickup a set of 16s off mud, or maybe Christo has a set for sale. I remember way back when he had them for sale on his website.


these are the other style available, but there are a lot less of them out there it seems from when I was looking for rims.
