hey I was wondering how those dual cases are going to handle the 350/350 with 1 ton axles.  Are they strong enough for that much torque.  I want to know if mine are going to be strong enough for my setup.  oh and what coils did you use for the rear of your suspension oh and for you front what springs did you use

They look like some sort of Rubicon Express. Maybe the 6.5 Long flex (I think thats what they are)

Very very sweet looking rig is all I have to say.
RIP Kyota.... you are the man

GET IT!!!

Front springs are Marlin's 4", rears are Rubicon Express 3" lift front TJ. The cases should do okay for this season any way. I won't ever have the 4.7 and 2.28 engaged at the same time. The second case is 23 spline, and I have been thinking about having a guy cryo the inputs and outpust for me.

I like the huge tires. That is all I can relate to. I don't totally understand everything else, but I want to build one now. Where do I start? lol.

Hazel loves playing truck driver in my Dodge when I'm letting the oil/turbo cool so I figured I'd let her play in the jungle gym.  :bud:

Yeah, before cash was tight but I had plenty of time. Now it's constant 10-12 hr. days @ work so the cash flow has freed up a bit but I have no time to work on it.  :hammerhead:  I got my propane kit from Gotpropane.com but haven't had time to throw it on. Once I have some time to wrench, IT"S ON LIKE DONKEY KONG!!!

Not a one.  :rivers:  Unfortunately it hasen't made it much further than the last pick. Luckily one of my buddies has a leak on his tow rig so I'm going to drag him up and he's going to let me bum a ride. Sux since my wife was actually excited about a trip for the first time. Oh well, she's even more excited to take it to her families cabin in the winter and cruise around the area in the snow.  :thumbs:  Hopefully if work slows a bit, I'll be able to get back on it and have it done in a month or 2.

Well the only update pics I have as of now are of parts because build time is still minimal. Got my LPG setup from Cary @ gotpropane.com . It's an awesome kit, when he says complete minus the tank, he's not joking. Heres my mixer and vaporizer.

My new pinion yokes, unfortunately I'm now sitting on a pair of High Angle Toy/60 yokes. The one on the left is a stock Toy t-case yoke next to the new 1410 yoke.  :afro2:

And the reason I needed those 1410 yokes, I'm going with a 203/205 setup. I'm not really sure I can even post on this board any more as my frame and Marlin springs are now all that is still Toyota. I got to thinking and decided between the tires and the motor, I'd be changing outputs every time out so out went my 350.something :1 gearing in favor of some strength.  :muscles: The adapter is a super  :bling: unit made by Northwest Fab. I can clock the case any direction in 1" increments and I can flip the 203 upside down for clearance if necessary.

No, the 350 is now LPG injected -TH350-203-205 w/32 spline outputs into 1410 driveshafts.  :rockingout:

ya know I've been thinking about propane for my 350 but alot of people I've talked to have bashed on it.  I think its a sweet setup for my purpose but I haven't been sold on the idea completely
