Yesterday? No. I haven't been near Boulder since I visited Marco last Friday. I've been mostly around downtown Denver. I did see a early model dark green 40 in Cherry Creek the other day. It's funny how excited I get when I see a smililar one.

Hey Marco,
Well, I've been working in ND for the past 2 weeks, so I've just creeping on IH8mud and a few other places looking for parts.
For the emissions part of the project, I've acquired a smog pump, air cleaner (thanks Matt!), air rail (Thanks Marco!) big ole box of FJ60 smog equipment including carb that I haven't gone through yet, and I'm in the middle of buying the center console/heater. I'm still short some hoses and gas pedal assembly, Dan says he has most everything, and a guy on IH8 has it as well.
For the axle I am kind of at a stand still, I still haven't figured out how/when to get the axle swapped. I was hoping I could get it done while I was out here, since it seems these jobs in ND take 3-4 weeks, but as of yet no plans.
So, that is the state of the LC, lots of plans, little to no action. I did buy a cover and a few small bits and pieces from coolcruisers, and the GF covered her up, so it's just hanging out.

Default Original Wheel Questions

Hey guys, I was curious if someone could answer a few questions about the OEM wheels that might have come on my truck. I really want to go back to the white ones, I think they look great and want a more original look. So, does anyone know which ones came on this truck? The white wagon wheel looking ones? I know there are differences for each brake styles, what is a good way to tell? I found these on good ole Craig's List.
http://boulder.craigslist.org/pts/2590085866.html
Thoughts? Also, if anyone is interested in trading a set of 5 original white ones for the chrome/polished ones that I have now that would also work.

Adam, those wheels in your link are the common wagon wheels seen on earlier cruisers. They aren't factory, but they were a common dealer add-on back in the day, so they're almost more common than the factory wheels.

The factory wheels for your late model FJ40 can be seen in these pictures:

I believe they are the same as the FJ60 wheels, only painted white. Though some FJ40s did come with these wheels in factory chrome.

I got some FJ60 wheels for my ruck and painted them white. I think that's what came originally on them.

Marco and Matt are both steering you in the right direction. And I agree: FJ60 wheels will be easier to find. The downside is that the original wheels are only 6.5" wide. If you want to run 33 x 12.50 tires, you'd be better off with a wider rim.

Okay. Thanks guys that is good info. So, that brings me to my next question. I really like the white wheel look, but since these tires won't fit, looks like I'm stuck with my current setup for the time being. Are there any benefits with the larger (wider) tire size? Pros/Cons for going back to the original?
Also, Marco - Did you paint the stock FJ60 chrome rims? I found some for $300.00 w/o shipping on IH8Mud, was thinking of jumping on that.

300 sounds steep for a set of wheels especially if you are going to paint them......

I had a set of stock fj60 wheels that I took to the powdercoaters and had them sand blast them and powdercoat them the original white/off white color.

you should be able to find a set of 60 rims much cheaper than that. may want to try yota jims.... its a junk yard in denver that specializes in toyota stuff, they usually have several 60's.


What width are your tires?

I like the outlaws you have on there. It all depends on the lift and tires you're running.
