Picked up some spring and shackle hangers so i can put these deavers in.  I had originally planned on doing that today. But instead i have been doing some small things to get it driveable so i can try to get it to the smog shop.

No point in finishing the truck if i cant get it smogged/registered before mcr.  No registration = no driving there.  So i half ass trimmed the bumper for now (need to make a front bumper so i just hacked the stock bumper up so my tires wont hit it anymore).  Also hammered pinch weld.  Going to do a bolt check and in the morning maybe run to dmv and try and get a moving permit so i can drive it to the smog shop and hopefully get it smogged.  Wish me luck!

Truck passed smog this week :woohoo:

Made this today at work


Need to do a lot of fender trimming still lol.


4wd seems to work fine, both lockers seem to work fine as well.  Guy i got the truck from thought the front locker was broken for some reason.  went and drove around my buddy's property just to see if everything was smooth.  Tires rub way too bad to do anything else.

Picked up a new optima today since my red top is 8 years old and starting to get kinda weak.  Also picked up a heater core since mine was leaking. Got the dash all torn apart and the heater core out in an hour, but the one i got from orielies was too big to fit into the box.  Called them and they got the correct one on order so it should be here tomorrow afternoon.  Put my progress on hold for the night. :(

The heater core housing was full of coolant so i was right on it leaking lol   Hopefully get that wrapped up tomorrow and maybe work on getting my ifs box moved or my springs in (i dont have ubolts though so that will probably wait). :dunno:

Man i have been so busy lately with school and everything else, im starting to get stressed out about how little time i have.  I will have to get the steering box moved and fenders trimmed before mcr.  Which is doable., probably during this week after school. 

I could wheel these crappy skyjacker rear springs, but i want to get my deaver springs in, but since i am only getting like 10-15 hours a week now at work i dont really have money for ubolts/plates/ rear shocks/mounts,etc.  These are really the main things i need to complete in order to wheel as far as i know, i would really like some bumpers but back to the whole money issue.  Lol

I will be excited when mcr is over, the truck will be put on the back burner so i can focus 100% on getting my bachelor's degree.  That's all I really care about at this point.

I do have some ubolts i believe somewhere, (probably under my 4runner at my buddys house).  However, these deavers are a thick pack so i might need somewhat longer unbolts, im not sure i havent measured yet.  I might be interested in the ones you have.  Thanks for looking out!

Skyjacker rear leafs vs the deavers





These two pics are with the deavers on its own weight.  I havent welded the spring hangers on yet, they are only tacked on there so far.  Also these springs are long for sure.  This is the stock shackle hanger with 7" shackles. I cant move the shackle hangers back much more than an inch or so, so i got some offset shackle hangers that are off center which should help.  At the moment, i do not like how the springs hang out further than the tailgate.

Didnt get these under the back yet, ran out of time, Gotta finish homework.  :/.  However this should allow me to move my shackle hanger back roughly two inches, so that will help out my angle, but we will see what happens.

was your heater core leaking onto the floor or just in the case? what were the symptoms? fogging windshield?
every once in a while  i get this oily film on the lower part of the windshield and  I'm worried the core is leaking. no coolant on the floor though.

When i first got the truck i didnt notice any issues with it leaking and i had let it idle for hours it seemed like, heater seemed to work fine, no condensation or anything on windshield.

When i went to put my v6 radiator in i flushed the cooling system and heater core and filled it with coolant.  Let it idle and it seemed fine.   The next day i drove it to work and when i was driving i thought smoke was coming out of the vents for a minute, but it was like a coolant mist/steam.  It quit doing that slightly after i noticed it and was fine.  The following night i was driving it and it was cold out so i turned the heater on and it instantly fogged my windshield, thats when i knew the heater core was bad.   Pulled it out and noticed the coolant in the bottom of the heater core housing and noticed a slight little bit on my carpet.  So i think i might have damaged it when i flushed it but i guess i will never know for sure.

Well i haven't touched this turd of a truck in months!

Threw my new yellow top optima in, since the red top would finally not start the truck anymore.  I got around 8 years of use out of it so i am not complaining!

Put the deaver leaf springs under the back finally.  They should flex nicely.  I still need to buy a ubolt flip kit, as well as new shocks for the back and get them mounted.  The shocks that are under it are in the stock shock locations and limit droop by a few inches.



So i welded the front spring hangers on and i thought it was going to sit decently.  I totally missed that the stock spring hangers were contacting the springs so it was sitting higher than it would after i cut those off.  Here is how it sat after i got rid of that issue.



 : :rofl2:

Welded these together and threw them under the truck.





End result.  sits decently, haven't had a chance to go flex it out yet, i will most likely have to wait until i get new shocks under the back since these ones are WAY too stiff.

This is from last weekend.   Just went for a little easy snow run because a buddy got a 4runner and wanted to try it out.





Definitely need to move my steering box, trim fenders, do bumpstops, and get different rear shocks in the back before i take it out again.  :rofl:

If you bob your bed i recommend having someone to help you, should make it a lot easier!
Mine turned out a lot worse than i hoped, but the bed was kinda beat when i started so i didnt really care too much.

I took 12" out of mine.  I would probably do 10" next time.  And if the bottom of the bed wasnt so dented i would have left it, i dont like how i cut the bottom of my bed off but it was somewhat dented and not worth trying to keep.

Yeah my bed is really straight and I would want to do it the right way the first time lol. What did you use to cut it with? A die grinder ? That would make a clean cut.
