84 SLO build....UPDATED W/ PICS!!!
« on: Oct 24, 2008, 08:58:11 PM »
so I've been on the boards for a little while now and I've finally started doing work on my 1984 Toyota pick up xtra cab, besides just replacing tires with ones that will cover my truck in more mud!

when i got the truck it was all stock except for the cheap body stripe and the campershell and carpet kit. when i got it it was in perfect condition. the guy my parents bought it from used it to travel cross country and he babied it very well. at 16 years old i did not know how to drive a stick so my dad got to use it for about 3 months until i convinced my parents i could drive it. so i had my mom drive it to school and i followed her in her car and i tried to drive a manual by dumping the clutch and stabbing the gas!!! :smack: needless to say that day was the first day i used 4wd for my first hill climb and it was the first time i wrecked the truck...since then its had 2 motors, 6 head gaskets 3 heads and numerous exhaust changes. but now I'm out of the screwing around stages(i doubt it) and I'm starting to transform my high school mud runner into a rock crawler. here are some pics of my truck...

first time flexing out with 4" of travel and a stripped out hub

i removed the bubble campershell, and slapped on some 31s

second campershell, hated it!

 marlin rear

installing sliders

rubicon

after rubicon with front lift and stock rear springs with no tcase gears and blowing up a welded rear 3rd

front and rear lift, 4.88s, 38s, wheel spacers, and it sits 25.5" from ground to frame





next on my to-do list is "real" locker in the rear, smaller tires, dual cases with tcase gears, exo cage, chromos and longs

well i hauled the ramp out to cuesta to play on and this is what i got...

not bad...but not what i want


backing up goes further then driving up


the front trimming worked out perfectly


every time i backed up the pass. side tire would slide pulling the driver tire off the ramp...i need a locker


springs feel a little stiff

That pic of the Rubicon with your rear end tore apart. Was that this past Memorial? You got a free welded 4.88 3rd from some random dude?

That front flex with the stock steering is impressive!  Let us know how the rear shock mounts turn out.  I think going through the bed is the way to go.

I have all of the old stock parts to the steering system. I just put in my high steer about 3 months ago. It's all just sitting in my garage taking up space. You pay for the shipping and you can have it. I can post pics but I don't know how. Rob
