Default Toyota truggy (updated fuel injection)

350 swap on page 2-8
Spring swap - cross over steering - axle armor page 9
1 Ton swap- Dana 60s- Starts on page 10


This is what i started out with minus the lights. Got it for my first vehicel when i was 15. Bone stock except Front and rear bumper,rollbar and rinio liner.85 toy,22re,4x4,31 street tires, auto trans, 141,000 miles

Slowley started doing things on a small buget. Made a cold air intake($25), 2in shackle lift(home made-$20 for steal and bolts),cut off the exhaust and put on a 40 series flow master with no cat. Finally got enough money to buy my cousins 33 pro comps ($500) and sold the 31's for $175.

Cant find any better pictures with the 33's. That was a fun day 75 foot long jump. Landed where the dark spot is on the right of the picture. The 33's rubbed so i bought a 3in body lift.Started building engine slowley.Truck was way to slow. Bough a cam Best engine mod. Later bought a header for $20 and redid the exhaust. Got a real job so i started having a little more money so i bought a real lift. Bought a 3.5 northwest offroad lift. Now i had a total of about 8in of lift. Really big for the 33's. Finnaly convinced my friends dad to sell me the 38 ground hawgs. Way under powered with the 38's. sold the 33's to my other cousin for 400. Drove like that for the longest time.

Aired down to much and poped the bead on the rear.






To long went by with out doing any thing to it so now things got serious. Bought a skyjacker 7in soft ride system all Springs front and rear. That put me up to total of 12in of lift. 7in springs, 2in shackles, 3in body. Did not like the 38's for a daily driver because that were not very well balanced and had bad rode manners, so i started looking for new tires. My neabior ended up coming over day and said he had some tires i might what so i went and checked them out and there were exictley what i whatted. 37x12.5x17 ssr super swampers. paid $700 for almost brand new tires. Bought some 17x9 pro comp 1079s to put them on. Also just recently made beadlock rims(fake) Cut them out at school on the pasma cut and powercoated them at school to. Paid a total of $30 for them. steal about 280 new


With the new tires i finally broke down a bought gears. 5.29's. While it was out we figured way not and welded the front diff. Already had a detriot locker for the rear. Made it alot more drivable with the lower gears.
Now it was time for a new paint job. Finally one day broke down and started doing body work. Got all the body work done and sprayed up at my school in the paint bougf. All ppg paint. True blue, moly orande and silver(dont remember the name).Did almost all the body work my self. 3 differnt friends sprayed the paint. Ended up being my senior project.






This is what it currently looks like. This is what i ended up with 3 years later and lots of money. Right now in the works is about a 400 HORSEPOWER 350(357 really). That is the next big project. Slowly being built money comes in and back out into the motor. Next step is heads. PROJECT: MORE POWER
I'll put the list of every thing ive done on another time because ive been typing this forever. Also put on some more wheelin pictures. Any questions on how i did somthing just ask, ill try to help. Tell me what to think.

how the hell have you kept those procomp springs together with jumping it like that???

Mine were trashed after like 2 trips (they were shaped like a w)......and I keep my truck on the ground for the most part and have no where near the weight you have.

Maybe it is cause mine are not as arched (only 4") and theregfore they are not as stiff?

Ive gone through alot of different springs. First lift was from northwest off road. When i put that lift on, i found that one side had a broken leaf. Used the nwor kit for a while then had to add a leafs to bring it back up. Now i have 7in skyjacker softride springs. Those started saging so now i have add a leafs in those. Every trip to silver lake i lose height. Yes the jumping does pay its toll on my front springs.

I want to 4 link it but cant afford it right now. Im going to have to hold back on jumping with the 350 cuz of the extra weight. End up breaking my springs. Right now im thinking about putting my 6in skyjacker rear springs in the front and getting 63in chevy springs for the rear with enough lift to match the front. Dont know if i want to go that big though.

I think most of my problem is that my bump stops are not correct...........so the springs will overflex way past what they should.

I dont have any bump stops on my truck.
Yes this is my daily driver and i beat the snot out of it. Drive it there, wheel it hard and drive home. Toyota tuff.
I just have the hubs unlocked all the time so it does not matter that the front is welded. The center section does not even spin when i go down the road.
