  1. After some digging around it seems 235/85r16 tires will clear the strut with a back space <= 3.75in, which translates into an offset of <= -6mm. Since I have stock 7Jx16 ET20 rims with +20mm offset, seems 1.5in wheel spacers will do the trick, in lieu of getting new rims. Now rubbing on the wheel well, flaps, fender etc. is a different story, but I'm willing to sculpt my truck into a modern art masterpiece lol. Ref:
  2. Hello again. So after I get the 2'' SFCreation strut spacers installed, will 235/85r16 tires be a drop-in fit? Researching the older posts seems to indicate that 235/85r16 tires will not need BS adjustment nor trimming of the wheel well, mudflaps, etc. Edit: Seems I also have stock 16'' 7Jx16 ET20 rims Anyway I've got my eyes on a set of Cooper Discoverer A/T3s. Wish me luck. Cheers. P

    Off-road shocks? Best ones

    KG4163 is the part number. Here's the datasheet/specs https://www.rockauto.com/en/moreinfo.php?pk=503793&amp;cc=1431952&amp;jsn=10439

    Off-road shocks? Best ones

    I got a set of KYB gas-a-just shocks for the rear of my 2003 SE and it's holding up decently in forest service road conditions. I got em off RockAuto for pretty cheap (rn they are 40 USD per). Addendum: Mind you I'm not sure KYB gas-a-just shocks are best if you plan on getting lifting coils, they might bottom out in dips or pot holes.
  6. Hello folks, It was pretty funny heading up the logging roads on my stock 2003 SE after an afternoon pew-pew session, making it all the way up the mountain to the end of the road, and coming down again passing a party of lifted Jeeps and a lifted Dodge Ram. That being said, I was thinking of getting a lift installed on my R50 to clear some of the dips on the trail better. The aftermarket tow hitch on the R50 was dragging the dirt in a few of the dips. So I was researching the options for lifting and wanted to get your opinions on a struct spacer lift kit and an SFD. For the strut spacers I was looking at the 2'' all around lift kit from SFCreation. As for the SFD, I'm still looking for a pre-fabbed kit that I can buy... if anyone is selling, I'd like to know. I know the strut spacers are a cheap options for lifting but can only give about a max of 2'' before the angle on the CV axle becomes too great. On the other hand, SFDs preserve the CV angle and give at least 4'' of lift, but are way more expensive in terms of the parts and the labor. Cheers. P.

    Annoying jolt when accelerating moderately past 2000rpm

    I added half a quart of Seafoam Trans Tune and it seems to have dampened the jolt somewhat. As far as a cheap fixe goes, I think I'll stick to changing the fluids and see how it goes. Speaking of which, the next scheduled maintenance would be to change the transfer case and rear diff fluid. Cheers. P.

    Annoying jolt when accelerating moderately past 2000rpm

    Hmm yeah a hard shift could be the issue. So far no codes related to this issue. For now I only see this in drive gear. In drive gear with overdrive off and flooring it (pretending I have a G35 turbo lulz) there isn't really any abnormal roughness, the other gears work fine as far as I can tell. I'll try checking the sensors you mentioned. Cheers.
  10. Hey all, so I noticed that my Pathy has this thing where when I'm accelerating moderately past 2000 rpm after a few seconds the RPMs drop about 500-1000 and there is a noticeable 'jolt' when the RPMs drop. I guess this may be the automatic transmission downshifting past a certain speed/RPM but I just wanted to confirm, and see if you guys know a way to make the jolt less rough. I had a recent oil change and transmission fluid change, and also did the whole Seafoam through the vacuum line thing to clean the engine. Let me know what you guys think. Cheers. P.

    Locking Hub Install With Pictures

    Hello everyone. So I have this 2003 SE with stock 16in rims (7Jx16 ET20 apparently), with a 100mm center bore. I wanna ask if the RR 15001.61 locking hubs fit through the bore without wheel spacers. Your input is appreciated. Cheers, Path_0_logical
