Have to admit that I'm still on the fence a bit about bobbing it or not.  I do like the look of both but part of me wants the extra space in the back for storage. 

Either way I have sometime to think it over.

I have new body mounts but wasn't originally planning to install them yet as the cab is only on temporarily. However, I've realized that in order to get the rock sliders placed correctly I will need to install the body mounts which shouldn't be a problem as the cab is only loosely bolted on that this point.

Well things are slowing down a bit for the next few months as kid number 2 should be here any moment now. 

So in the mean time I've gotten a few small things accomplished and have started collecting parts for the tcase.

4x Innovations engine and tcase mounts painted and ready to install.





Also picked up a twin stick from FROR.  The one thing I didn't realize about the FROR twin stick is that the threads for the shift knobs are different than factory Toyota... 



Making difficult to install these shift knobs I got a while back from LROF.



My plan is to cut off the threads and re-thread the shafts with factory 12x1.25 threads.  However, I do have a question for the more machinist  inclined folks on here.  The FROR shafts are 1/2" which is slightly larger than 12mm.  Is this to large to run a 12m die over or will I need to turn down the shaft a touch first?

Youve only got to remove 0.7mm from the diameter...... If it was 0.2 mm you would get away with it.  Ive done it before and let the leading edge of the die produce the final diameter, it will soon tell you if it doesnt want to cut it
So try it just grind a good lead on the bar before you start.

Only a little bit to update...

I dropped my shifter knobs off a local machinist to get rethreaded to match the FROR twin sticks and should have them back in a week or so. 

Also, started to tear into my tcase to get ready to install new gears and rear output shaft.  I've have a new RCV output on the way but I'd really like MC to get the 4.70 gears back in stock (hint hint) as I have very little desire to run TG 4.70 gears in my tcase. 





All the gears and bearings look great  :) just need to clean them up a little so they are ready to put back in once I've gotten all the needed new parts (again MC hint hint get the 4.70's back in stock please)

Things are still moving slowly around here but I did get this in the mail the other day.

RCV tcase rear output shaft.



I'm not super happy with it at the moment and wanted to get some opinions from others.

First off there is a bit of pitting on the shaft itself.  Seems pretty minor to me but still not happy to see it.



Also, there is a slight bit of rust on the end of the shaft.  Not a lot but its not really just surface rust either.



All in all I'm debating about sending it back and getting a replacement.  The pitting and rust seems pretty minor but again it did pay a little over 200 bucks for it.

I would definitely call them.  There should be ZERO pitting in an area that was machined.

Nice build.  Thanks for sharing, just what I've been looking for.  I'm down to the rails with my build as well and I'm glad to have found your thread to see the path your taking.  I thought I had an aggressive build going, but you are taking it to another level with upgrades.  NICE PARTS PILE.  I know what I have invested so far and you've gone further into the upgrades than I was willing to. 

I'm curious as to what your front shackle angle was when you were completely unloaded.  I'm trying to fine tune my front hanger location on mine for the RUFs and I'm at neg20 degrees.  I have the TG front hanger tacked at 1" forward of the front crossmember.

Been looking for a build thread down to the rails to compare notes.  You're just ahead of me on progress.  Once I get photo privileges, I'll get a build thread for mine up.  Would love to compare notes with you.

I can't recall at the moment but it was slightly negative something around 5-10ish I'd guess.  I currently have the front hanger flush with the frame but I'm planning to move it back ~1/2 to 3/4" so that I'm sitting around 20-25 with the idea the springs will settle and net me around 35-40 as a final angle. 

As for pictures I use photobucket which is free and easy to use for posting pictures.

Got the new RCV output in the mail the other day.  Looks much better than the other one.



No rust and no pitting! Great customer service at RCV (they even threw in a new hat)

Also got these babies in the mail this weekend :clap:



Brand new 4.7's from Marlin.

Also started to put a few pieces of the tcase back together.



New RCV shaft with the low range 4.7 marlin gear installed.  Currently working on cleaning up the housing pieces and saving up for the double case so that I can get to putting the whole thing back together.

Speaking of double cases.  I'm on the fence between Marlins and Inchworms any suggestions on which way to go?

No I'm not currently planning to rotate the tcase but the option to do so in the future would be nice.  I'm currently leaning towards the inchworm atm but I heard that new marlin adapters will be coming in stock in the next month or so and I've read good things about both.

Not much to up date but I did get a my doubler from Inchworm the other day.  :greengrin:





That almost completes the goodies needed to put my duals together.

Just need some triple drilled flanges which hopefully Marlin will get in stock before long.  I really don't want to go with Trail Gears flanges.
