Bumper is doing it's job, I torched the old hitch off the other day, ans put led bulbs in the headlights. Just driving it daily, trying to find a place to mount an air filter box to make the intake a little less noisy. Also going to dig into the iac again to see if I can get it to high idle when engine is cold.

No real updates, rear pinion seal is leaking going to tear into that next week. Still looking for a 4.56 or 4.88 3rd so I can finish the front axle uo with longs and what not.

Have got to do something for rear springs the factory 2wd springs ride great but have no support for any kind of load.

I can't decide what I want to do. I know I'm not doing 63s but chevy c10 springs look good, the Rangers I did research and they don't do loads well, not doing a lift spring simply for the reason you stated above. Open to opinions

I have a ton of spring laying around, might go that route and just poke some more into the existing pack to get more out of it.

F-150 swap is the best from what I read/hear.

Negative but should work good with a bed also. Think the front hanger moved 8.5" forward

Yesterday on the way home from the boat launch throttle cable broke. I got another one to get me by until a permanent solution is made. Anyone have suggestions on a cable the will work without having to fork up the firewall? The little universal Mr gasket snapped at the factory soldered end that comes on it.

have you seen the ZUK mod for Toyota rear springs? I like the second one using jeep coils because it can return to stock easily. http://www.gearinstalls.com/coilphilbert.htm
I did not do this, just showing what some people have done. I'm running 1st gen Tacoma all pros on mine (mounts relocated) https://www.allprooffroad.com/9504tacomarearsuspension/9504leafsprings , had to add a leaf, should have got the expedition ones

Hmm, that's some interesting stuff. I suppose I'll take a crack at rhe f150 swap simply because I do quite a bit of towing with it and loading the bed with junk. I'd like to just be lazy and slap some air shocks on it but I'm concerned with the flexing that it would rip them.

Throttle cable is annoying me.  :tantrum: It's got small sticky spots in it and I know it's going to break again. I looked at a few 4wd 1st gen cabs at the house and they have a different pedal. So I guess I'll go to the junk yard and grab a tacoma throttle cable, use a 4wd throttle pedal, and as bad as i hate to do it, cut the firewall so it will fit. :rivers:

Hit the u pull it after work yesterday and got a throttle cable from a 96 2wd 2rz taco. Got it home and looked at rhe difference. A 1st gen 4wd cable mounts very similar to a re or rz truck. However a 1st gen 2wd throttle cable threads through the firewall into a threaded block welded to the inside of the cab. I did not want to remove that I'd the reason for attemptimg to use the universal cable. That cable never was as smooth as a factory job, and after breaking one I knew something must change. I took a 17mm open end wrench and twisted back and forth on the threaded block until it broke free. Inserted the tacoma cable and secured it to the firewall gen the inside with 2 self tapping screws for temporary purpose until I have someone that can hold the roll when I insert machine screws and nuts. With the cable mounted I moved to the pedal. Again. A 4wd 1st gen pedal the top where the viable mounts is similar to the re/rz trucks, a 2wd is not it uses the same round lug as the throttle body end except smaller. I removed the 2wd pedal assembly and held a 4wd (from a parts truck out back) next to it to see the length of the pedal rod vertically was about 3/8" longer on the 4wd. The mounting surface that goes to the fire wall with 2 bolts in it is also different from 2wd to 4wd. I put the 4wd pedal rod onto the 2wd mounting bracket. Hooked it all up and it sets a little higher than the cable but not enough to worry about. Holy crap we have a smooth pedal boys! She is smoother than the pedal in my tacoma. I dig it! Now just to figure out how to re attach the rotten rubber pedal part to the floor...

While at the above mentioned pull a part, I spotted abut 20 f150s. There is a 94 4wd wthe leafs hanging ready for the taking, and a 92 2wd ready for the taking. Is there a difference in the 2wd and 4wd springs? Also early 90s is what I'm looking for correct

I'm hoping not to have to move the rear hanger, we will see how it goes once they are in hand, re drilling leaf springs is a pain!
