    Yulli, you didn't mention what year your Taco is, but I ran 285/75-16 on my '01 Doublecab with no issues. Stock wheels, no spacers. I did have 2" Revtek lift.

    Canadian models have been making their way south, so both 4 and 6 cylinder diesels with 5 speed trannies are available in "North America". We got those from 81-89. BJ 60s and HJ 60s. Left hand...

    Yours had the full lower fairing (which I think may have been for an 80 series?), so slightly different. Still way lighter than 90% of what's out there. (Not busting your nuts, just pointing out...

    There are no 5 speed diesels (or very very few) here in North America. My suggestion would be to have a look at LCOOL (Land Cruiser owners on line). It's an Australian forum that has a huge number...

    My UZJ 100 has 180,000 miles on it. That's about 300,000 kms. It still runs and drives like its got 30,000 on it. You'll be fine!
