Smile 285/70s on 3rd Gen?

Hey guys. First thread here, but not my first Yota. I've had several, including my first car, a '69 Corolla. I've had Corona wagons, an MR2, and most recently a '98 Taco, but my question is about my '97 Two-runner. I need tires and am already into repairs in a big way. Rather than blow another $800 right now on tires, I was offered some 285/70 17" rims and tires. Diameter looks to be 32" but I am running stock height.

Currently I have 265/75R 16" on the truck, and I like the size, but for $200 these would get me by until I can spring for a new set of shoes. I don't want to buy them if they aren't going to fit - again, no lift on it at the moment, but just driving on road for now. Appreciate any guidance and am really glad I found this resource!

If you use the google search bar here and scroll down a bit to the t4r.org forum-specific results you'll find a bunch of threads asking about things like "Will 33" fit on stock suspension?". There are other variables like the BS/offset on the 17" rims the 285s are on (clearing the stock UCAs, etc) so there really isn't a definitive answer. Are the wheels from a 4th Gen? My feeling is you're gonna get some rubbing at full lock and if you flex the suspension, some more rubbing. People flatten the fenderwell pinch-weld with a hammer and hub-centric spacers can help clear the UCAs (but may cause other fenderwell rubbing). The fronts are the main issue. Can you 'try them on' first? I'm just throwing some things out there - there are folks here who know what they're talking about and hopefully they drop by.....

I ended up making a gasket out of some felpro gasket material i found at autozone. The reason I couldn't AAA/tow is because I'm not sure where the car's gonna go just yet but I wanted options because it's taking up a nice person's driveway >_<

Question

Hey all. I was the smart guy here and tried to install a computer 920S remote starter. Cut a few wires and then eventually got overwhelmed, soldered the wires back together and this is where I get the problems.
Everything starts up fine no long crank etc. my radio (aftermarket boss radio) dome lights and clock do not turn on what so ever, I tried replacing the 15amp fuse in the fuse box and that didnít work. Hoping to get some information out of this.
1997 4Runner limited.

I found this tidbit, not sure how reliable it is, that a rear defroster is supposed to get to 85F - Defroster Repair and Troubleshooting Guide Ė Frost Fighter & Clear View

Maybe someone with a more recent vehicle than my old fleet can confirm .
So to close the loop and hopefully help others - I got the new rear glass put in, and the defroster performs much better. A fogged up window gets cleared up within a minute or two. And after 10 minutes, the grid gets up to about 70F (on a 45F day), way better than before.

I also got to have a look at the inside of the tailgate, and the where the bolts for the license plate bezel are, so I'll do that project eventually.

Requirements to Post?

I recently purchased a '99 4R and joined the forum. My account is not yet allowed to post. When I try, I get a message saying I haven't yet submitted enough replies. I cannot find anywhere in accounts or settings or the forum rules what the requirements are to be allowed to post a new topic. I also cannot find any way to PM a moderator to ask.

What are the requirements to be able to post?

Can you change W59 output shaft seal without taking it apart?

I searched hi and low but couldnt find a decent answer...

My w59 (2wd, 3-RZ) is leaking like a faucet out of the rear of the transmission. Can you change the output shaft seal with the trans in the car or pulled out of the car but not disassembled?

Any help is much appreciated.

Thanks!

Hey guys.

I am thinking about upgrading to a koyo rad full aluminum radiator in the future but since the radiator made for our trucks by koyo doesn't have a built in tranny cooler like the OEM one does that means I need to install an external cooler. But I wanted to do that anyways so the radiator is a good excuse for that. I plan on buying the iconic fab bracket kit and use either the Hayden 678 or 698 ( bypass one) cooler. Question I have is whether I should get the bypass one or not. I live in socal where it rarely reaches cold temps lol. Even though I don't live in a cold climate at all would there be a benefit to getting the bypass one anyways? Or should I just stick to the regular non bypass one. I feel like im overthinking it lol. Thanks!

Couldn't find a toyota part number for said pigtail, but there is a site called findpigtails.com that will have what you need.

I need to track down a rear axle housing for a 2000 4runner 4wd, 5speed, w/ABS.

Is it correct that these axle housings are all the same and 2wd/4wd doesn't matter? The only thing I need to watch out for is that it has ABS?

Which side of the Naches are you on? If on the west side you can make a drive here to Marysville, I know DeathCougar has some
