Andy, if those lug nuts are tight the wheel studs are nowhere near long enough for that wheel.
I tried to find longer studs but couldn’t when I redid the brakes.
I bought some extended acorn lugs
They are essentially like the stock lug nuts.
you just can’t see how deep they go because they are covered.

You may need to do a little searching but get longer studs...friend of mine went from steel to aluminum beadlocks and had the exact same thing going on. Thankfully we found it and were able to keep it together long enough to finish a trail after 5 out of 8 had snapped off.
his is trailer only so I wouldn’t want to see that happen on the road.

Pretty technical work that I did to the 40, but after years of weather and abuse, I replaced the tail light lenses. Ordered from Stevenson on line for a better deal than the club discount, cheaper than the other on line vendors. The gaskets were more expensive than the plastic…

Finished the 3” icon lift 2 days ago. Even with the worn out, undersized procomp shocks the ride is better than it was..just slightly more floaty since I haven’t reconnected my front sway bar. Slight drivers lean so I’ll be swapping out the front 10mm ds spacer for a 30mm eventually.
But coincidentally and of course I got a cel for p0171 on my first test drive🤦🏼‍♂️

Finally solved my P0300/P0304 on the 3rd Gen 4Runner. When a new ignition coil didn't solve it I took a look at my records and found that the spark plugs had 60k miles on them. :oops: New plugs (and wires for good measure) and she purrs like a kitten. (y)

Tore into front end of the 40. OME kit in progress (rear axle done). Front needs axle service and brakes too but got the springs swapped today. Couldn't get the steering stabilizer off. Ordered proper puller and going to rebuild steering box. Decided I might as well order all new tie rod ends along with the steering and brake parts... Kind of snowballing, but not unexpected. 😉
