Mod #5: new 18" Tundra rims, with new 275 65 r18 BFG's. the tires aren't my first choice, but they came with the rims in a screamin' insider deal, so what the heck- they're new, they're round, they hold air, and every lug is torqued to 85..

All I have on this one is a night shot.

Did you use the utility knife technique to get the 16" tires to fit on 18" rims?

I think we are likely to end up with a 100 one day, so I really do appreciate your pioneering the mods Tim. I've seen Farnham wheel his truck and it is quite impressive. The wife's 4Runner is almost paid for, so you know what that means ... is 5 Toyota 4x4s too many?

Good catch, Dan thanks! I'll update that... it's really tough to get used to typing a new rim size, after living 16's for so long..

But yes I think you'd like the 100 series, it's a great way to make the 80 feel skinny again.

That's something I have wanted to do...where did you source the LEDs?

superbrightleds.com

these for the domes http://www.superbrightleds.com/cgi-b...HP4.htm#photos

these for the map lights http://www.superbrightleds.com/cgi-b...-x5.htm#photos

these for the doors http://www.superbrightleds.com/cgi-b...-x4.htm#photos

This is the cheap route.. there are brighter and more expensive solutions if you want your truck to be super silly bright at night (like Treeroot ) but if all you're after is the different look and lower amp draw, then cheap & easy is the ticket. My main interest is can I leave the doors open for extended periods of time and not worry about the heat in the lenses or the battery draw.. if I need to perform surgery I'll grab a head lamp.

Pictures are weak. How about a sweet daytime shot of the 100 with those bling 18" wheels?

Check that Gold. Bling Bling. You need Gold rims to match that Landcruiser logo.

Just kidding. Looks nice Tim. I always thought the 100's without the fender flares looked sharp. Any way to remove the door/side trim I wonder? Then it would look really clean, especially after taking off running boards and adding some real bumpers.

If only Toyota would sell them to us in HZJ105 form! I think they are great looking in basic white, steel wheels, simple.
