Default the Tan Truck and DarkYota

Here are my my 2 works in progress.

First is my Tan Truck:
'85 yota with Waggies up front and chevies out back, Hi-steer, locker, IFS hubs in front(wider) and IFS rear axle w/ disk brakes. I built this truck around a 35" tire figuring if I were to go bigger I'd build another truck.

Rear Disks

The DarkYota
this is the next direction for me, so the plan is D60/14bt, 4.3L or 5.7L/ turbo350/ D300(poss 4.0 gear), and running a 17" rim with 38"-40" tire.
suspension will be 3 link air or coilover front with hydro-assist steering, and the rear will be 4link with coils.
the starting point:
