I know it has been awhile, the TRunner project was put on hold for awhile.  It got going again this last weekend.  I got the engine put in, the transmission in and the tcases in (pics to come).  I also test fit some prototype bumpers for Marlin Crawler, they are looking good.  Very Happy with them, I painted the front bumper before installing, the rear I left bare for now, but will be painted the same color soon.

the brackets goes right into the frame, with a 4 bolts and then 6 bolts to bolt the bumper to the bracket

The bumper fits nicely.  Love the styling.  Huge improvement over the stock. (ignore the parts still in the back of the 4Runner, still a work in progress)

Bumper goes right over the factory mounts in the frame and bolts right up. This one I painted before mounting, it comes bare metal.

Definitely going to have some trimming to do. I am waiting until I get my new tires to start trimming.  The tires on it now are just rollers.  not enough tread there that I would actually run them.  Those are worn down 39.5" tires, Im going to run 37's, so it wont be as much trimming as it looks like now.

Good they are just rollers, i wanted to point out you had two on backwards. :gap:

And fyi, low tread 39.5 iroks do amazingly well in snow.

Haha I know two are on backwards, but considering I'm just pushing it around the shop like this, I didnt care.  Cooper Discover STT Pro tires to come in the next couple of weeks.

Dang that looks awesome. The bumpers really pull it together and 37s will look good. The rear door on 2nd gens really put a damper on fender trimming. :_order:

TRevv, I understand that bumper was the prototype, any movement on the Taco bumper? I read the email newsletter that said within 4 months.

Correct the timelines that went out in the newsletter were the most up to date timelines we have right now.  It may be sooner, but that is the best estimate.  Please keep an eye on the website for any more info.

Well a lack of judgement on my part may have set me back a little.  I didnt think about how long that fuel had been in that tank (no telling how long it was there before I got it).  Started it and may have instantly ruined 3 of my 6 freshly rebuilt injectors.   :hammerhead: Doh.  :outtahere:

If that is where your front axle is sitting and you are going to run 35's or bigger you are going to need more then fender trimming, you are also going to need to tub the back of the wheel well!!

Shoot how old was the gas, do you really think it could ruin the injectors after a short run?

haha, funny guy brennan.  No not quite that old.

I am running 37's.  I have not even started trimming yet.  I want to get my 37's on there and see how much I have to cut before I just start going all willy nilly on it. 

Shoot how old was the gas, do you really think it could ruin the injectors after a short run?


I dont know how old the gas was.  Ive had it for a year, and i don't think the guy was driving it, so how long it sat with him i don't know.  I don't remember there being much fuel, so whatever nastiness was in there, was in the lines and went straight to the injectors.

New Tires Came in  :D   :cool:    I decided to go with the Cooper Discover Stt Pro.  They seem to perform good offroad, but dont wear super fast on the street, not too aggressive, but aggressive enough.  A good dual purpose tire. These will suit the Trunner well.

OVRAROK reminded me to flush my heater core after I found those idiots before me had ran stop leak in the cooling system.  Rather than flushing it I decided to change it... that was fun, to get to the heater core the whole dash and dash support have to come out.  But once i got it out, super glad I changed it.  That thing was so plugged up, and had been so for so long that the copper had started to oxidize.  Thing looked nasty.  Unfortunatly didnt get a pic of it, but here is pic of the dash torn apart.

By any chance did you weigh a wheel/tire combo.
