    Hey there guys 'n gals... it's been awhile but I'm still kicking and so's my wee Takumi... just thought I drop by and say HI and show that you can indeed fit 26" 6ply ATV treads under yer Suzuki with just a 2" lift! tak 2015.jpg

    Also, out of curiosity, has anyone done an EGR delete? I'll have to dig around the forum a bit, I think mine's sprung a vacuum leak and might be the reason he runs rough, especially when it's wet out. Anyhow, I'll probably be posting up a few more photos and documenting some adventures here in the next few months... lemme just say it's good to be back!

    Hey Iron! Good to hear you are still around. I haven't done an EGR delete on a mini but have done it on other vehicles. I say go for it! Tires look great and its amazing they actually fit!!

    Scored the tires on Craigslist for $40 I figured it was worth a shot since I had the wheels laying around... the fronts are 8" wide and the rears are 10" wide. I did throw a 1/4" spacer on the rear just to be safe, I probably have a little rubbing on the frame occasionally but I'm OK with that for the GRIP damn... the grip... :D

    wider is better for sure, my 11" wide Titans were a little tight before my 1 3/4" afco lift (24"..though)

    I did wear a little grove in the rears from the fender position, bounces, articulation, boat trailer, or any kind of box loading,
    didn't hurt anything though, just makes a cool noise racing over bumps.

    Back in the 80s, I did an EGR delete on a fleet of about 100 vehicles (not these minitrucks). Merely made up a metal plate the same outline as the gasket and sandwiched it between the intake manifold & the EGR unit. Eliminated a lot of occasional come & go kind of problems with odd running. The EGR valves sometimes get a bit clogged or debris and won't close off completely and cause some weird running problems.
