Nice work! Truck is looking great man. Everytime I check out your build I think it can't get any better, but then it does! Haha. Keep the updates coming!

Well Jambo 2017 is in the books and the Shakedown went better than expected.

All the new additions seem to be worth it. My wheeling buddy for the weekend.















Minimal carnage in the group for the weekend. Broken TRE

It was a pretty good time as usual.

Build is awesome. Just read through the whole thing. I'm in Houston, and we met at Dave's shop during KOH while he had it on TV there. Also saw your rig out at Jambo this year, and it looked great. I have an 85 4runner that I'm building. My a340h auto is on its way out, and I'm considering doing a manual swap or sticking with a later model auto. Since you have run them both, I'd like to chat with you a bit about your experience. I'll PM you.

Nothing new on this end except that I bent the front D60 and had to have it straightened, replaced the front locker because it was too loud, picked up a 92 1UZ for a future motor swap and a set of 39 BFG Red Labels.

Just been wheeling it and having fun. I will be starting on the rear 4 link in the very near future.

Looks great...

My buddy Nathan needed a project and I needed some help bending some tube so we started on a new backhalf and 4-link. The backhalf is all 1.75 x .120 DOM, Artec brackets, truss and link mounts and the Coilovers are 16" Fox 2.0s. Should be a roller within a week or so. The backhalf needs to be welded out, the other CO needs to be mocked up and the Fox Bump stops need to be mounted. Then the fuel cell, trans cooler and other plumbing needs to be re ran. I sourced a new roof which I will be doing at my house to fix the current one. We will eventually ad an exo and A pillar tubs to protect it. This will enable me to remove the inner cage and free up some head room.













Full bump
