Hi Simon and welcome to the board. I can't offer the answer to all your questions but you can easily fit 12.5" wide tires on your 8" rims. I believe Lordco sells some cheap tach's, as well as body lifts. For lights on my truck I run 4 30w farm implement lights (2 floods, 2 spots) so that I don't need covers. Picked them up for $12 a piece at a local (mainland, sorry) truck shop. Hope that helps a bit!

I'd tell you about my truck but you probably wouldn't believe me.
for the tach, just go to crappy tire. I got one there for $50 and it works great and loock pretty good to. It's 2 5/8" diameter. You can get it is black or chrome. It's the sun Super tach II. I think it also comes in a 3 3/8" diameter.
