Good too see another 70 owner in board . There starting to get popular in the 4wd scene now they have been around a few years it's a shame they will peak about the time the retire them in 2015.
I think when it comes to the big rubber, 17" rims are the go. Those specific bighorns are a strong tyre. They are the only model bighorn that are made in the 85/16 series as well. The newer 764 do not. My next rubber will be 235/85/16 series and if I ever go bigger will be 255/85/16.
In regards to your splits in the doors, are they fastened to the metal frame as well?
the 17s have gone well thus far there load rated at 1400kgs so fairly confident they will do the job .
The Main reason I went the 17s was for the tyre size more than anything. + the offset options suit what I wanted . So far there are wearing ok after 3 decent trips front to back with in .5 of a mm being early on they wear quicker so I'd imagin they will stay close, if they do stray apart I may just run them on the road for a few weeks as I run day to day unloaded, the fronts should catch up, or at 65% just pop them and swap them over. Doubt I'll keep them much past 40%
As for the splits yes I fabed up some light plate to get 2 fixings fairly easy the tweeter just has a big loose nut holding it to the board with a washed its all solid no rattling . The tweeters are good cause you can point the noise up. For best sound you'd want to tilt the 6" speakers slightly up. Pods are too big as it gets in the way on your accelerator foot and I was too lazy to shim up some 20mm to 0 spacers .
But set up right with the head unit it definetly is a good sound system it has an inline 2 channel alpine amp too. I really would nt want it any louder and the quality is a lot better than most new cars
A few updates, my first decent mud outing in the OTWAYs went well. No dramas at all, replaced my bull bar gsm Arial with A GME 1.5m am fm band whip Arial, I always had bad reception with the factory Arial + I would always forget to pop it down and nearly brake it every outing , but now that's all sorted
Added alarm locks to my gear on the tray no need I worry about getting stuffed knocker off while away for the car momentarily.
Still looking at chips and turbo upgrades probably when the current one gives up.
And want to chase up inserts for lower bull bar lights as they ones in there are just a cheap home job
