    put the shackle threw the frame it will help pinion angle also,

    and wheel it the springs should settle.

    Those springs have been on the truck for atleast a couple years, I'm sure they're pretty settled.. But I do plan on cutting my frame to run tubes through it.

    I wish I had heard from you sooner! I went and got some 86 pickup rears and 88 4runner rears.
    Using 4crawler's awesome site http://www.4crawler.com/4Runner.shtml and good ol' pirate I came up with this...

    Anti Wrap - 4runner military wrap leaf
    #1 Leaf - pickup main
    #2 Leaf - pickup mil. wrap
    #3 Leaf - pickup 3rd leaf
    #4 Leaf - 4runner 3rd leaf
    #5 Leaf - 4runner main
    #6 Leaf - Remaining 4runner Mil. wrap.

    I've been prepping the leaves for this graphite anti friction paint I ordered, and bought some new poly bushings too. This pack seems to have worked decently for others so we'll see how it goes and if I need to modify it at all...

    Anyone with lowering advice PLEASE chime in!!







    It's a shame about the beds being 2 piece, every single Toyota I have seen with those beds have bad rust at the seams, , oh well it wouldn't be a Toyota if it was perfect. Looking good man, keep it up.

    Yeah and it's funny cause my cab is fairly rust free. Good ol' toyota bed syndrome.. I'll probably build a flat bed before too long.
    People have told me to find a new bed but anyone with a rust free bed wants more than I'd like to pay, and the money spent can go toward some tube. I've got some ideas brewin'

    I coated my leafs with EZ slide graphite paint. While these leafs dried I was hacking out the metal bushing in the spring eyes to fit the new poly bushings.


    All I have left is steering and brake lines.

    Little update, got my ruf packs on for the most part, I still need to drill for shackle tubes through the frame.
    I'll have my box re mounting done tomorrow probably.
    All I have left is front brake lines, and fluids (engine oil, gear oil) before I'm back on the trails.

    Got my box mounted using the Front Range kit, after a little modification I got it setup how I wanted.

    Thanks! I like how my rig sits, it'll be a lot more stable.
    I can't wait to get out and do some wheeling!
    My brake lines are hooked up, installing a fj80 master cylinder tomorrow.
    And my frame tubes are in, just in need of some new shackles before I can mount the springs unfortunately
    After that I'm gonna go get her inspected and registered for the year, and go for a ride

    Thanks mayne. She just climbs and climbs and climbs. I actually don't get very bad axle wrap or the hops at all. I'm pretty pleased. Next time I go out I'll try to get some respectable video action.

    I haven't updated in a while.


    I got rid of my center console which was falling apart from the carnage and put this ammo box in.


    And I picked this short block up for dirt cheap. My block in my truck is cracked... but it still runs fine and doesn't leak anything. I'll just start building this with spare time/money.

    Not too tremendous of an update, but my truck is running, steering, climbing, crawling, doing everything I want it to.
    I want to try and trailer her down to moab before it snows, we'll see how that works out.
    And I'm building a tube bender at school, I'll be buying a die soon
