Powder Bounder Lounger
« on: May 15, 2012, 12:27:17 PM »
One of the three NW trail rigs I'm building right now, and my shop is only 19 x 23 ft inside  :_oops:

This rig was originaly outfitted for an LS, Atlas, 42's, and rockwells. ONE BIG BAD SAMI  :gap: It showed up here as a bare chassis with all the cage work done by the previous builder.

Tungsten Slayer and I am re-doing a few thing for a friend. With a bit of luck we will make a trail leader out of him.

First thing done, we removed the sub-chassis designed for the rockwells and created a new one for the Toyota stuff with 1.75" x 0.188 wall DOM tube.

We removed the floor and firewall because it was quite rotten and we needed the space to set the motor back a bit. The new power source will be a Tacoma RZ with 5 spd. and single 4.7 t-case. It should be right at home here in the NW with 106" wheel base and 37" Iroks.

The suspension is designed for pure pleasure! Belly pan at ride height is 16.5"before skids. The front coilovers will be 14's w/7" up travel and the rear will accept 14" or 16" coilovers with 8-10" of up travel from ride height.

All photos are at ride height
