I love that color. Keep it coming!

I've never seen buggy leafs stick out that far. Are you foreseeing any issues with it?

thanks man... yeah there going to be rock sliders for sure.  I had some 63" chevys that stuck out like that pass the bed in my first gen flat bed.  They slid alot and bumped rocks in reverse...  other than that the pinion angle looks good and the shackle angle looks decent.  Ill let ya know monday lol.  :hammer:

big ol 38's showing the junk in the trunk



looks good. likin the paint job alot.
only one thing i see that could make it a whole lot safer (i dont know if you are done with tube work or not). but have an X in the back behind the seats. the more triangulation the better.

ive seen those buggy leafs work really good, my buddy had em on his truck but he made a stop so they dont drop out far and flip the shackle the wrong way, (seen that alot) kind like a I_I shape welded to the bottom of the frame far enough down where you want the leaf to stop.

just throwin some ideas out to ya.
let us know how the test run goes!!

edit: 38 TSLs kick ass!!!
Life's journy is NOT about arriving at the grave peacefully in a well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, worn out and beaten, shoutin HOLY Sh** what a ride!!!

i only need 2 for the test trip.  I dont want to take the kids if there are problems that I do not know about.  The rig will b a 3 seater.  The third seat will be on a pull pin so when the kiddos do not go the ice chest will clip to the same rail the seat was on. 

KIDS!!! I was talkin bout the seat for the wife!  :rofl: :Rs ducks for cover:

very good ideas zukjunkie.  I also wanted to add some bars on the back section going down from the top of the cage to the rear of the cage.

So test run went good. Some things to fix are ps pump leaking like crazy not sure if it is from overheating or over working it with the 38's and the hard wheeling.  The rear leaf springs were so stiff there was no flex at all in the rear.  SO i need to make some rear leaf spring packs. steering shaft needs to be extended.  I hit really hard on a rock and lost spark from either the igniter or wiring not real sure.  SSB's rig did real good very crazy to see him on the wrong side of the rig.  The turbo noise is way cool too.  It was awesome doing some follow the leader on the rocks.

Idea taken from Pirate4x4

http://www.pirate4x4.com/forum/showthread.php?t=179253&highlight=toyota+igniter+gm
 
complete bypass of toy ignitor and coil for 30$
instead of paying for a used ignitor and coil that will probably go out just like the one i had or paying 300$ for a new one i opted for the "easy" gm conversion . like seabass did but instead of using a 1000 ohms resistor and the stock coil i bought a coil for a 1973 chevy truck 350 v8 (or any round coil with negative/positive terminals on it) (11.99 autozone) and a "ignition module" from a 1985 chevy k10 350 v8 truck (14.99 autozone) .

your igntion hot wire (or any hot wire if you wanna have a toggle switch hidden some where) goes to the b terminal on the gm ign modu then from term b run a wire to the positive term on the gm coil. then run a wire from the c term on the gm ign mod to the negative term on the gm coil. then the g and w term on the ign mod go to the two wires coming out of the distributor cap. just use trial and error hooking them up, if you hook em wrong it will idle real high and fast rough, if you hook em up right itll run perfect. theres only two wires so its 50/50 not too hard.

soddering would be best on all the new connections along with grease, also on the bottom side of the gm ignition module is metal that is your ground to bolt it or wire that to your old ground on the fender .

The F toys I see do not have an x behind the seats.  I will add bars going down to the back of the cage.  I will also add some head support over the b pillar.

It will give it way more lateral strength if you roll hard or at high speed on your side
