Looking good, looks like you all worked hard on it.

Since pretty much all my travel is up into the mountains, and I am not inclined to regear at this time, from the research I've done, I'm thinking probably 31x10.50s. I like both the Yokohama Geolander AT/S or the BFG AT K/Os

Martin, how are things up in the mountain. Are you and the Mrs. getting any sleep?

I'm running 31x10.50's on my 60 with no lift, so I bet they'll look small with your new lift. I would go at least 33x10.50's. I don't think you'll feel the need to regear with 33's. Heck, I'm running 34's on my 40 with stock gearing.

Man, seeing your 60 get all set up really makes me want to get working on mine. First would need to be the engine though.

Things are going well aside from not getting any sleep. Mom and baby are healthy and we're all learning the new routine.

31's will look small. i wouldn't go with anything narrower than a 10.5 either.

i would regear but i would regear by dropping in 4.11 diffs. easy to do. it'll get you closer back to stock and be much happier going up the hills to the mtns.

Yeah, 33x9.50 or 33x10.50 tires usually look just right on OME lifted trucks.

Carlton, do you have a 60 or a 62? If it's a 62, you already have 4.11 gears.

It looks like a 62 from the side with those big mirrors.

Man, that 1985 FJ60 would look awesome with a bull bar, too.
