have you decided what you are going to do for inside panels in the ex-cab portion?
Looks good so far - I really like the floor.
thanks!!  yeah, i am going to make the inner panels removable.. to try to get as much storage out of this thing as possible i will be putting my extra oil, small tools, and some small axle parts, bolts, etc in there...  they will also double as a place to put my rear speakers although this idea might change..   this area is a great way to get into the inside of my back panels and rockers to see if any rust demons are lurking in there down the road...  as well, having access to this space allows me to run wiring through the rockers as well quite easily should i need anything wired in the back of the truck..

it got crazy cold up here over the last while and its been too much of a deteurment to be freezing my butt out in the garage... i also ended up buying a 92 4 runner for 500 bucks that needed an engine to tow my sled and small trailer around.. i couldnt sell my spare 3 litre engine so i decided to find a vehicle that needed one, swap the engine in and then when i am done with it i would sell it in the spring... i should be almost done my engine swap this weekend...

ok, well here are a few quick updates...  i just ordered the 25mm pin upgrade kit from marlin, a set of 6 shooter knuckles from those other guys(being that it the only non-crap thing they sell) , and a pile of little odds and ends to finish up the truck...    i also have been working with a decal company here in town to see if i can make a replica orange and yellow sr5 stripe and decal set as well.. i will know pretty quick here if i can make them exactly like the original or not.. :crossed:
 the wiring harness is pretty much done and now its almost ready to strip everything down again and finish a little bit of welding to mount some tabs  and stuff..  i am quite happy with how things are turning out but there isnt much point posting anything because i havent made any big changes..  

i will have some good pics again soon...  its supposed to warm up here again shortly so i will be back at her again.. thanks for all the good compliments again!!  this has been a fun build and plan on making it go on for ever and ever and ever and ever.. :disturbed:   just kidding.. i plan on actually making it down to marlin crawler  roundup next year..

well, not to much progress although i think its confirmed that the gilrfriend and i are gonna try to make it for the round-up this year in the pickup.. this at least gives me a goal to finish this thing by..  gee, i think i have heard myself say this before.. oh well..  i am enjoying myself anyways...

the biggest news at the moment is that i am working with a decal guy right now here in town to reproduce an accurate sr5 decal package for 1st gen pickups..   (the yellow and orange stripe package) ...   i will know more after the weekend how things went...

hey thanks guys!!  i am trying to have the official "longest time to build a truck" thread..   i have built, rebuilt and built again several parts of my truck as my skills have gotten better over the years...  this last week benp (project toyotal chaos) came over and made some new engine mounts again for me while i worked on the back end of the truck...  my fuel cell is pretty much all buttoned up and the lines going to it as well.   basically the whole truck is about 80 percent done in all areas..  i have spent alot of my time actually helping out with other peoples builds over mine and now figure its my turn to get something done..  another truck that i have been helping with is "Project sarge" in the landcruiser area of this forum...  that has kept me quite busy over the last year as well as my buddy has caught the crusier bug and i am not one to turn down work on a good cruiser project..  the other big issue is that i dont do too much out in the garage during the winter.. all i have to heat my garage so far are two construction heaters and its expensive to run them so normally i shut it down for the winter unless i really need to be out there and resume my work in the spring again when it is warmer..

the big plan is this..   i am going to work on this truck this summer till i can get it running and then tear it down for complete body and paint over the winter..   the girlfriend and i are going to make marlin crawler 10 next year.  (who doesnt make the tenth anual anything big!! so we have to make it to that one!!).  we found out that my hollidays are all screwed up and i dont have enought to take any 4000 mile trips this summer so marlin crawler 9 is out unfortunatelly...

 i am going to copy and paste from another forum the few details i have of my truck progress lately because i dont feel like typing any more and its 2am in the morning...  :disturbed:


good day in the garage yesterday...  i did manage to get the new clutch on the engine and the engine installed. i made a clutch aligning tool from a junk tranny that i had to make the job go easier.. good thing the toyota 3 litre and 3.4 litre use the same size input.  i think from here i will continue to assemble till it can run and drive.. i will do a complete teardown as originally planned once i know everything works... tomorrow i will get the heater and a/c assembly hopefully back into the truck and finish the wiring... there are a few changes that i want to make now to some of the accessory wiring just to perhaps clean it up a little better..
here are the pics..

using the clutch tool to make the job easier


clutch in place waiting for pressureplate


almost in its home!!


touchdown!


just a random side of the engine shot



and........


with progress starting to pick up i have decided to go another way with the front fan..  i originally bought a 16 inch rad fan and fan controller from Summit racing thinking that i was going to put electric fans in...  i got playing around and like i found out before, there was no room to put a engine driven mechanical fan but it was close..  the stock fan was basically sitting a quarter inch into where the rad would normally sit and then as an evening project i thought i would mix and match some parts and see if i could come up with something that i could make fit..   in the end, a fan clutch assembly from 3.4 and a fan from a 3 litre truck was the right combination to sqeeze a mechanical fan in between the engine and rad...  well, sorta.  :?   being that the original plan was to run electric fans it really didnt matter how th engine sat but with the mechanic fan it was quite evident that the engine was indeed tilted downward because the top of the fan was hitting the rad and the bottom was 3/4 inch away..  so then i undid the motor mounts and lifted the engine a good 1.5 inches till the fan looked even with the rad..  next was hood clearance because i thought i wouldnt have much clearance between the top of the engine and the underside of the hood...  turns out i still have a good inch of space..  it will work for now but when i get the supercharger on i will have to cut a hole in the hood and put a scoop but i am fine with that..  thanks to ben for starting to rework my engine mounts again..  they look even better the second time around!!  :lol:
 here are a couple pics of how it sits so far...

I'm soo glad I ran across this thread again.  Absolutely amazing build. 

I've always wanted to do what you have done, but with 4 doors (either suicide or regular).  Thought of combining 2nd gen 4runner rear door with 1st gen pickup doors for the rear.  But, what you did looks great - keep the pics coming - love it!!!
