Looks like it has spent its life hauling boats out of the ocean. I wonder how the chassis is.

Re: LR4 18 Inch Wheels

When I was at Overland Journal we did a build with 20” rims and 33” tires. With a 30mm spacer they just fit.
That gave us a lot more MT options.

What are you using to get rid of all the rust? Vinegar bath? Or just elbow grease and wire brush?

Hard to say without knowing the year. Did you take a pic of the vin plate under the dash? That way you can figure out the year. I've paid as low as a hundred bucks for a rolling chassis and body with no drivetrain and as much as $5K for a nice original running series 1. Granted, those were 86" truck...

It's a 1988 with the original 3.5 We've rebuilt the motor, checked all the wiring, checked the ECU, changed the O2 sensors, checked the stepper motor etc. Everything seems to be working, but the EFI light is continuously on.

Hmm. I think in theory you could use a modern flasher and wire it backwards, right? Anyone here have more info?

I think a modern flasher is cheap enough that it wouldn't hurt to try it. Just put a couple of inline fuses in, just to be safe.

Contact should only be under articulation, so on road use, it may never hit. Personally, I would properly check and trim. The trimming is easy and not noticeable.

Okay, so then I guess the question I need to ask is a different one, if I fit 235/85R16 tires on a RRC will they rub, and if so likely where?

I don't want to trim the body in case I want to bring it back to stock in the future.
