    Doesn’t look like much, but I got another hour of work completed on the donor dashboard. I’d say 75% of the connectors have been identified and freed up. Gotta pull the HVAC system and drop the steering column to free up the rest of the connectors.

    Yesterday I got the rest of the HVAC outta my way so I could free the interior wiring harness.

    I also confirmed that the 15” rims the donor came on have the proper backspacing for Redee. They are 15” x 7” with 4” BS, so I’ll be able to rock that awesome pizza cutter stance I’ve beeb seeking out, and won’t need the 2” flares to keep me legal. Once my Duratracs sell (posted on kijiji yesterday), I’ll buy a set of 33”x10.5×15 General Grabber X3. The tallest tire I can buy for 15’s which are not KO2s.

    Had a chat with Finn on his trip to Ardbeg, and the Knarr may offer up some parts to Redee.

    Probably not what you’re after, but remember the 255/85r16 that I had on the landcruiser. They would be cool too but wrong wheel diameter.

    I’d be down to run that tire size, just gotta find rims with 4” backspacing. Only reason I’m sticking with 15’s is that I already have a set (two sets) of rims with proper spacing. I have a set of OEM 17s from my Tacoma, but with 5” BS they don’t clear the UCA or Tie rods. I do not want to run wheel spacers, and the 17s aren’t that cool anyways.

    Still trying to sell my Duratracs, know anybody with a mini truck who’s interested?

    Redee’s new heart is hanging from the hoist, waiting on some refresh parts before starting the process of transplanting.

    That 2.7L and 5 speed manual should be fine with 33’s. My 09 Taco ran with that setup for 10 years with no issues and the stock gearing was fine. Does Reddee have a higher ratio?

    Redee has factory 4.10s with an air locker in the rear. I have a full set of 4.56s on the shop floor, but both F/R are open. Torn between +10% torque vs -50% traction. In my estimated 5,000kms of touring, I’ve used that air locker once or twice, it seems a little unreliable at times. I feel like a lunchbox would be fine, and with exception to Ardbeg (once) and No Winter roads (a 20M section here or there) the open diff would be more than adequate.

    I’m gonna keep 33s, but long range plan is to go much skinnier. 33×12.5 now, ideal is a 33×10 mud terrain. I will run these Duratracs out though, my attempts at selling them only yielded frustration.
