I'd much rather have my spare underneath than carry it on the hitch and impact the departure angle. A steel rear bumper would be nice and a swing out tire carrier even better. But I'm not in love...

Here are a few pictures. One shows the departure angle is unaffected, as it appears from some angles that the spare would hang down slightly below the hitch. However, departure is not impacted.

It's a 285/70/17. BFG AT. It is/was brand new when I first mounted it. I rotate it in. Ideally, you could find a used 33" tire for your spare and it might fit without the strap.

I carry a 33" spare underneath. I carry it deflated and with a ratchet strap around it holding it against the hitch to avoid the panhard. It works fine, and I always have a compressor with me. Far...

Then it was probably close to $6 2 years ago. Think of it this way. You're getting 2x the fuel mileage that you were before as far as your wallet is concerned. If gas goes up by 30 cents, that will...

Maybe you'd get an MPG back. If you don't wheel, I guess you could justify it. But at that point, no need for a lift or A/Ts plus the additional weight you're hauling around. If you're pinching...

Hmm... No, not normal. I can't tell when the compressor is on or off but when at idle from an engine load perspective.

U-joints will click when they start to fail. If it is speed dependent and the greasing doesn't cure it, you may need to inspect those u-joints.

Assuming you mean the 100 series LC, the only thing I believe they share is the engine and I assume transmission. It may go further than that. I considered both but my money bought a newer lower...

I know the feeling. I have an 03 I picked up a few years back with 110 on it. Now at 145 and expect another 100k out of it. Solidly built machines. They're Toyotas and live up to the reputation. ...

Agreed! All but guaranteed buy back if you can. So many like-new parts on that thing. What a shame it is totaled. :(

K-Trail Report

A buddy and I made it out to the Ktrail this past weekend. K stands for Kiamichi. It's located in eastern Oklahoma. It runs along the ridge of a mountain range for about 50 miles. These aren't...

Agree with Bulldog.

Locking center diff gives you a "locked" split of 50/50 front to rear. There is nothing active in the axle diffs that sends power left or right. That is regulated via the...

Yes. I get it. Which is to say I see no value in the manual override switch. If I desire wheel spin, then traction is low meaning binding and breakage shouldn't be an issue. If traction is good,...

Gotcha, I think. The lower rpm range where traction control is. Seems like this would be a good thing, but maybe not as much in some instances. If you overrun the RPM limit of the traction control,...
