This is a thread for a buddy, who Im sure, wouldn't do one for himself.


Starting with a built 93 std cab pickup. Could not sell it, nor find a comparable 4runner to swap too. (needed more seating)

So...

He removed the interior, and back window.

Ordered a 4xinnonvations full cage kit for a 1990 to 1995 toyota 4runner. This was a brand new cage which did not even include any instructions.

We spent all day sunday installing the cab cage, frame tie-ins, and bed cage. We still need to do the rear frame tie-ins, then work on the back of the cab and interior.

Pics of progress so far:

That thing is gonna be freakin sweet!! That's exactly what I'm trying to accomplish with my 85 xtra cab.What are his plans for the metal between the cab and bed?

Yup, I love it, I thought I was the only one with crazy ideas just to make things harder on myself. I wish him the best of luck.

Also is he planning on redoing the floor behind the front seats and in front of the wheel wells in the bed? I was doing some measuring and you can drop it down a couple inches until that damned funky frame gets in the way. If hes gonna do a shell theres a couple nice ones on KSL for $200 or less.
 
Coreshot also did something like this with his xtra cab but was running into head room complications in the backseat I believe as his kids didn't stop getting taller. Awesome build.

I always thought of doing something like this when I had my truck. Keep up the posts

Yeah floor will be redone, along with the back of the cab. Headroom is an issue, but that will be accounted for. Full soft top, sealed to the cab, with roll up sides for summer.

We should have more progress this weekend. Between working different shifts and me trying to finish the crew cab, there hasn't been much time.

Should be plenty of legroom, seat will be as far back as it can go and still fit a 40" spare behind the seat. Thinking s10 blazer tank as it worked well in mine behind the rear axle. It measures 30x20x10 roughly.

this is exactly what im getting ready to do to my truck as soon as i get the tubing to bring the cage threw the rear, floor will not be modded on mine thought, as my kids will be the only ones sitting back there. im hoping to have a buggy built for my oldest by the time he is to tall to fit in the back of the yota, or have a true 4 seater buggy built. im going to use a sammi or tj rear seat.

With the sami seat in the bed, my head was a few inches over the top of the cage. We were worried with car seats and boosters, the kids would be to close to the cage for safety.
