Back in a yota
« on: Mar 12, 2007, 07:25:54 PM »
well i put the sammy on the backburner for a few, and bought my old 4 runner back. it is a 85. just mounted up the 34x9.5 tsl's on stock sr5 wheels today. also started the front bumper. i am running superflex rear springs for a 89-95 pickup. and skyjacker fronts. i wanna try to take a leaf out of front to soften them up. also making missing links for rear since rear springs r longer than stock. i plan to add pics as i go. here is a few to start.

just be aware of how much weight you are adding to your rig. overbuilt is good but only til the point where it can hurt you  :beerchug:

it weighs proly around 40-50 lbs without winch only real thick parts r the front piece, the gussets, and the mounting plate the rest is made from angle. so it is very strong but not super heavy. i tacked everything togather with a mig and finish welded with a arc. since that is what we use at work i am mor confident in the strength of my welds. and the mig was just a 110v

whats the winch weigh?? about 70 pounds, plus or minus a few.. that seems like around 110-120..



and since its on the very front, it might be a little bit more thats quite a bit of weight difference..

can you see how its affecting your springs??
by the way, i'm liking the old 4runner, sweet paint...
