No, it's really like 4.125" because the axle is 1.75" wider total. So .875" wider on each side.

Front is very similar, just need to change the trackbar mount. Rear, pretty much everything needs to be re-done.

Are you doing all the work yourself? Or are you getting the pre-brackets-welded-on versions from IRO?

And I don't think steelies will be your only choice, any decent tire shop should mount up wheels with different BS for you so you can tell what the perfect amount of backspacing would be. Then once you figure that out, go out and find some wheels you like and get them with backspacing similar to what you found to be good.

Referring back to Les Schwab again, we had a lifted 4Runner come in. He bought some wheels and 37x13.5 Toyo Mts. Then he came back about a week later saying that they rubbed all over the place, so we gave him some slimmer tires. Then he came back AGAIN saying he wanted different wheels. We didn't charge him anything extra for the extra mounting or anything.

IRO's stuff is made for their lift. Since I don't have their stuff, ordering from them is pointless (and overpriced IMO).

I'm trying to get ahold of a local buddy with 16x8's on his WJ, I'd like to trade him wheels/tires for my wheels/tires (I can use the 285's on my Super Duty). I'm sure he'd love 35's....

Yeah, ok dude. If you want to come down, and do all the labor on this thing, I'll give you the tires.
