Man glad to see some work getting done...

Hope the head light mount is temporary, that bitch i'll bounce like crazy going down a dirt road.

Also, looks like you have room to run the exhaust over top the Xfer case mount on the left side. You probably already thought of it. My VSS adapter looks like it will hit the crossmember on the top side, I'll have to work that out.

I think when I do my X-member I'll have to fab up some weld in mounts @ work. Press brake/sheet bender/ironworker available onsite!

Wanted to log in & comment earlier, but I couldn't remember my mother huffing password.

P.S. - I think you should part out the 4runner, you'll end up with more out of it in parts.

Thats gonna look nice with a 1/2" of liner on it. You should make another hole cover that fits over the shifters with just the shift pattern. Probably you already planned.

You could run some 2" gages in that verticle sheetmetal in front of the shifter.

A gated shifter would be cool.

Or a cup holder in front of the shifter.

I'm jealous of your purple oil pan....

That was fun, we should do that again. Don't know what I was thinking when I put the knuckles on the wrong sides, you can clearly see the R stamped on the Driver side knucle in one of the pics. Apparently was pretty tired by then.

Thanks for the springs, I remember you saying one had a broken leaf, but I looked them over & didn't see any
I'm going to try to use the set with the least arc, hopefully that will drop the body about 4".

axles are in time for drive shafts








































How to make the toyta front axle as wide as the 86 and newer rear ifs axles.

IFS calapers
FJ60 rotors
stock spindle and bearings
stock lockout
move the calaper to the outside of the ears
Drill and tap the calaper holes to M16 by 2.0
remove 2mm to help center calaper

I still think you're going to have mud coming up through that box, but I agree it does need some kind of drain

Do you have any other option than the multi angle shaft? Guess you could cut everything out & move the motor over???

I say fawkin run it

Got my pad forms finished today, started picking up sticks from the storm & found 2 trees in the woods fell over BIG ones.
more crap to do
