Well here is a start to our Mini Monster . Added 6 bolt white spoke 15x8 wheels and now have a 12 in clearance with no load. No other mods done as yet, some more over the winter, truck is now a daily driver so has to remain running.

Hope you enjoy the new pics.

Tires are 215-70-R15 on new 6 bolt white rims. Yes they rub abit if you go to sharply over a big bump but ok as a daily driver. Still updating the wheel hubs had new radius rods made special to move the wheels forward more. Also using '92 Loyale control arms. It moves the wheels about 2 1/2 inches forward.

So guess she's turning into a Sube Mini monster :D Still to add 1.8LT ( which is sitting in the garage waiting to go in) w/dual range 5 speed

here's my happy dance hahahaha :banana:

All the comments are appreciated and advice welcome.

Thanks to all who replied.

That's genius, is it a straight swap?

It depends on the year that you are working on,but yes the arms are a straight swap.you must get radius rod made to lenght to fit what you are doing.Mine are 19 1/2 inches.
