Thanks for that Simon i have a few things on ebay now i am ing watching, going back to the parts i was thinking of putting some 10j rims on the old girl, But on one fourm they was saying this can muk the truck up, would it be ok to run 10j rimms with wide arches or would it be ok it just use standard rims with spacers on the truck. Not sure what to do myself, Us i only really whant to use it for work but that is over farm feilds etc,

hi marc

i wudnt use spacers as it will look pants imho

the only reall issues are wide tyres will tram line very easily shud you wander onto the white lines
or catch say lorry lines,

id go for a 8" kit to be honest it will widen the amount of rims that will fit and be less wear on the wheel bearings
