I am not a hater, and your truck looks sweet, except that cage. Did you buy that new from All Pro? And was it specificly for your year Runner? If it were my $$$$ I would be pissed, you should not have to put up with that down pipe in the middle of the floor, nor should you have that cab bar next to your head. I have seen All Pro cages in 1st Gen Runners and they dont look like that, something went wrong here, or the ones I have seen are modified and I didnt know it. It may not bother you now, but a whole trail run of bumping your head (padded or not) and almost triping everytime you hop out is gonna drive you nuts.  :smack: All Pro offers pretty stand up products, but if this is the way they designed the cage to be, I wouldnt recomend it.  :shake:

Judd, Piere's is an All Pro does his look like this?

Aoccdrnig to a rscheearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it deosn't mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoetnt tihng is taht the frist and lsat ltteer be at the rghit pclae. The rset can be a total mses and you can sitll raed it wouthit porbelm. Tihs is bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the wrod as a wlohe.
So dont tell me I spelled it wrong! You knew what I ment.

it was for an extra cab and the cage doesn't bother me i bought it second hand for pretty cheap.... the bar in the floor really doesnt effect me getting in maybe if i was taller....

i wheeled today and i didnt hit my head at all or even come close and i was wheeling it ...

im happy with it for the price i spent on it im sure it will save the cab from going flat..

You want to try for next weekend, maybe something more north towards you this time? I am going to check into exo prices ASAP... sliding sideways, backwards and off-camber down hill is a little  :yikes: to say the least.

Nice man, finally got to wheel it. Looks good, cage seems a little in the way but if it works for ya way cool dude. Let me know how ya like the dirty 30's man. We put a set in my uncles 4 runner and we went sno mobb n the other day and they held up great. He has 36" swampers tsl's on it. He broke a stock birfield last winter right away in the sno!!
Sometimes life is a rock an we need a Yota to get over it an Chevy is like a rock so I'm over it!!!

it feels kinda top heavy but its better since i took body lift off... i think my springs are pretty stiff too but after flexing them out this weekend they felt better...

im planning on replacing the front main leaf with a rear main to stretch it forward some and to correct the shackle.. the rear i think i need to do about the same thing just change out the main....

i might take a leaf out of each pack also and cut fenders out to lower it down some... then of course bump stop it

tuesday my shafts come in and im planning on getting my front diff welded, gotta call some shops tomorrow see how cheap they will do it for... also im picking up a HF parts washer for 50 bones tuesday so i can make my parts clean once again!!!!

...so no Addicted bumper, eh? Dang, guess I'll have to get the sliders myself then. Come on, gas money!!! What part of the grill did you cut? I thought that bumper was snug on it?

I may start on my front axle this week, I realized I can sell my rear 4.11/Detroit third when I get the rear 5.29/Detroit third along with the current 4.11/Lok-Rite front axle. More money towards a cage!

$$$ sweet dude i might still roll up there one day or another to check it out and give him a shout.

i cut the grill up to fit... i dont like how i cut it im gonna get another grill....and cut it a bit different, IE not cut the ends off.




also got my fog lights installed and wired

also since i live in an apartment i have a 1car garage(better than nothing) so in true space saving fashion .. PEG BOARD

still not done need some more hangers.


YOU CAN ALSO See my new to me parts washer i got for 50 bones with about 10gals of fluid in it!!!

and dirty 30's came
