Your basket top looks good. What are the dimensions of it?

Glad you mentioned the trans cooker idea...lol


Long time since I checked the site, thanks for the post. Yea 285s work on stock, but I had old worn out suspension on my zu. Anytime I would drive one side up a hill it would rub.

I'll be painting my trooper very soon. I just ripped all the carpet out and rolling on herculiner on floors. Rattle can Flat Khaki on the outside. Pictures to follow

Calling Big Swede and Nasty, regarding my 1995 Trooper standard shift : A post in this thread had stated that these 285/75 tires could have simply been mounted on the stock factory rims without a problem - and implicitly - without need for new springs or lift or any other change to the factory suspension parts. My 1995 Trooper is ready for new tires to replace the 245/75s. I want to keep the vehicle as stock as possible. The most 4x4 I do is pulling boats out of the water and some minor central Florida sand hill/scrub oak habitat. I have rear air shocks to level up when towing and new Monroe shocks upfront. I'd like just an inch or two of lift obtained from a higher profile tire so I'm wondering what the safe upper limit is for these factory rims and what effect on gas mileage would be. Presently I'm getting 18-20 mpg from mostly highway driving on the 3.2 SOHC. I bought this Trooper new in 1995 and now have 329,000 miles on it. It had a new short block about 200,000 miles ago and two valve jobs. Continues to run great.
