No, but I always thought those things were sweet. Do it. I doubt anyone has ever built a Rocky

Get a pair of axles from 79 - 85 and swap those in, make your own leaf springs from junkyard springs.

There used to be a rocky build on here, years ago.  Not sure if its around anymore, but it was pretty cool.  I think the owner was working on a 3rz swap or something.

I think he went by toyhaitsu or something, and I seem to remember he finished it and was driving it around.

I have a complete set of axles from a 83 Toyota, if ya need them.  I was looking for a Rocky or Tracker to use the axles under, before I found my truck.

Here is his profile.  I thought he had a build, but in the few minutes I had to poke around, didn't see it.

I think there was one on MCR this year, and if I'm thinking of the right one, it was really done well. It was white with a light grey exo, 33-35"'s. Didn't get a chance to chat with the guy, but looked like he'd put alot of time and craftsmanship into it.

that's cool with the rocky. definately outside of the box. i once built an amigo with 3 inch body lift, rear shackle lift and cranked the heck out of the torsion bars. it fit 33s easy and looked really good. that thing was fun. good luck.
