Where did you get that pillar gauge cluster? Or did you make it? Shock gauges are in it, I can't tell
May Bobby Long be forever immortalized in his work and deeds to the Toyota 4x4 community. Because of a select few including this wonderful man, none of us have to drive Jeeps. He will be missed.

Sunpro 2inch gauges that i picked up at pep boys. They were around 30 bucks. The a pillar pod is from Lotek. I think it was 60 bucks or so. I bought it a while back though.

Got it installed

My rough measurements show about a 1.5 in reduction in throw. From 5.5 to right at 4. The shifter reduced a lot of the slop in the gear pattern and neutral positions. There is one difference I can see from the other installed pics. On my R151 the breather needs to go to the rear and the Marlin lettering goes to the front. Other than that the install went easy.

New pump is in. Steering cooler is mocked up. Reservoir is placed where it should fit. I had to cut off one of the mounting points for the stock airbox to make it work. Steering box is off. Old steering stabilizer is removed.  The mess is made. Got some royal purple max steer on the way from amazon. Just need to pick up my other box in conroe. I need to figure out the low pressure feed line to the pump. Its tight. Other than that i have to finish it up if i wanna wheel.

I figured out a better mounting idea last night with a piece of 1x1 angle iron that will be mounted to the drivers side shock hoop. This added about 2 inches of clearance that was definitely needed. It will be temporarily mounted with a couple of hose clamps and welded on later. I need to take the edges off of the new bracket and throw some paint on it before install. I am waiting on 2 -10 90's to show up so i can start routing hoses.

I also ripped out all the non working AC bull crap since it was in the way. I have one hose left that is being a real pregnant dog to get off at the compressor. I am capping off all of the connections under the hood for when I want to tackle the AC re-install if that ever happens.

I started combining/untangling all the random wires and ran them the correct way away from heat sources/moving parts. I added some dielectric grease to every plug around the ignitor, main harness and other engine components.

I got the ram mounts welded to the Ballistic 1.25" tie rod clamp so that can be mocked up as well.

Got the new steering pump belt on. I went with one that was an inch shorter than the stock length.

I worked on my steering cooler mount a little before I left on vacation. I used the rubber spacers that came with the cooler, 2 pieces of 1x1 angle iron and 2 tubing clamps off the A/C system that I removed.





Its a little tight behind the grill but it will work. I need to trim the back side of the grill a little. I had to flip the bracket around that goes from the lower core support to the hood latch. It bought me just enough clearance to mount the cooler.

I had a little issue with my stock airbox and my new PSC reservoir. The resi is taller than expected and had to be mounted lower on the wheel well which was was a tight fit.

Fixed my airbox clearance issue with some LC Engineering bling

Pretty solid kit and CARB approved for those who need it.



I also stared at these a while and wished I was at a point where I could install them. I splurged on 1 set of billet seat sliders from Chassis Unlimited. Cody is great guy to deal with over there.



I got the OK for some PRP seats and a 4xInnovations cage due to the fact that my Tacoma is paid off as of this month. Damn I haven't been without a truck payment in a long time.

After messing around with this project for a while, I finally got the hydro assist wrapped up and ready to fill.

Looks kinda tight.



Cooler in place. The bracket for the latch support was flipped around 180 degrees to make a little needed room for the install.



I had to chop out a little of the front core support. I used some 3/8 fuel line to put on the sharp edges and zip tied them down. I also used some scrap hose to keep the cooler lines from getting cut.



Now I just need to fill her up and bleed the system. Hopefully that will go well.

Got my test drive in this weekend. The Marlin Short Shifter works very well. I don't have any leaks for the HA install and the steering seems to be working well.

I'm probably going to DD the red truck most of the week to run some new fuel through the system and circulate all the fluids.

I got this rear shelf put together this past week since the stock one was long gone before I had the truck.



Then its on to the Dual Ultimate install. They have been built for a while just teasing me on the shelf.

Cleaned up my tube doors and put them on. They were pretty beat up and filthy from the last time I had them out wheeling.






I also got my Corbeau Baja SS seats ordered and on the way. No more stock shitty seating.

My new horns from TWF installed as well

Found a deal on a 4xInno extra cab DOM cage. My corbeau seats showed up along with my 4xInn TC mount. I'm waiting on the Sky's Offroad Xmember to ship. Then its time to get to work on the duals and cage.

I trimmed out about 8 inches of the transmission tunnel last night to make room for the twin sticks.

The Sky's X-member showed up on Monday.

I also removed the the front driveshaft, painted the 4xInno TC mounts, pulled the TC shifter , block off plate and pulled the lower portion of All Pro Dual TC X-member.

I'm going to drain the oil and hopefully remove the TC tonight. I'll probably throw some paint on the X-member and start the cleaning process.

I want to have the Duals in by the weekend.

Got the TC pulled this morning.

 

 

Drilled a whole in the crossmember in order to drain the crawlbox through the adapter.

I have had these put together for a while. The list of goodies include: MC-07 Dual adapter, Longfield Rear output, MC 30 spline front output, MC Total 23 Spline Input, Daves Offroad Twin Sticks, 4xInnovations HD TC mounts and a Sky's Offroad TC Crossmember.

Had some help show up last night. Patrick (scotia) on TTORA came by and helped me stab the Duals into position.

It was pretty painless. The front input was aligned correctly and we got it buttoned up. I just required and extra set of hands as usual.

The fasteners that came with the x-member were a little troublesome. I got that figured out today. Should have it all buttoned up tonight. Then, I need to add some  break in gear oil and install the shifters.

Believe me it takes some funding.

I will find out tomorrow when I can drop off the truck to get the cage installed.

The cage or the labor? I found a deal on the cage (DOM) on TTORA. Labor at the shop is 75 an hr.

I will be sure to post some pics.

It looks like Adam at 4xInno has posted some newer pics of the internal truck cages on his site. I noticed that last night.

The cage (dom) is runnign 599 right now shipping not included. The frame tie in kit was also included in the deal so that was a plus.
