94 2wd sas
« on: Jul 26, 2015, 08:32:57 PM »
Since I got this truck "done" I figured I would make a build thread. The plan for this truck was simple. I wanted it to be capable and reliable since it would serve as my daily driver as well. I picked the truck up for a pretty good deal from a friend.

I then started to look for 4wd donor vehicle. That was when I found this.

It had every thing I needed.
g52 tranny
dual stock cases with marlin adapter
sky twin stick
says high steer and billet flat pitman
non leaking ifs steering box
RUF and 63's
locked 5.29 thirds
og longs
an extra running 22r with webber carb
and 38.5 swampers.
best part was that I only paid $1800 for it

Knowing from the beginning that this would be my dd I knew I had to get rid of the swampers so they went on craigslist and ended up trading them for a almost brand new set of maxis bighorns. Next I got a smoking deal on a couple 4.30 elockers. I paid $600 for both and sold the 5.29 thirds for $460

I parted out the red beast then began cutting up the 2wd. I torched everything after school one day and then had it all ground and cleaned the next
 
While waiting for bushings and other random little bits and pieces I pulled my cases and decided to make a relocated twin stick out of the skys twin stick. The 2wd had a really nice bench seat and I wanted to try and keep it. This is what I came up with.
I threaded some 1/2" rod to fit my shift nobs then welded them to the little taps for the shifters. After everything was done it cleared the bench seat.

I got bored at school and built some 5" boomerang shackles and u bolt flip plates on solid works then cut them out on the plasma table. I also decided to just build my own hanger instead of cutting the one off the red truck or buying one.

Once I acquired the rest of the little things I got rolling on getting it rolling. Hung the front end with some help from a buddy, mounted the steering box (no I didn't paint it green and yellow and yes I did plate the frame just don't have pictures), then the next day did the 63s. I don't have any pictures of notching the housings but I did those just previous to doing all of this.

Got the interior all taken care of. I cut out a good portion of the tunnel then made a removable cover with holes for all the sticks

Finally up to the current state. My next task is a 3rz swap. I picked up a rolled 2000 tacoma for $950. I also have a 4xinnovations cage to install after the swap.

Thanks. This is my second build/ my senior project. I built a 4 door sidekick on toyota axles for my first car then sold it to help fund the new toyota addiction.

I am still working on getting parts for the swap. The rolled truck I have is an auto and I want to run my 5 speed. Also still trying to decide if I want to attempt all the wiring myself, have a buddy help me who has done a million of them but wouldn't be available for a while, or have toyonlyswaps do it. I would like to have my friend help me so I could learn something along the way but he is beyond busy at his shop.

Thanks! I wanted something a little different. I looked at the offroadsolutions harness but if I bought one Toyonly is just a couple hours away from where I live. As far as the ecu goes, the auto one will work. I know a few people who are running them in 5 speed trucks. I was looking for a 5 speed one before I found out the auto would work.

Haven't got much done on the the rig lately besides giving it a nice rattle can paint job. I have been busy with boat racing all summer but should be making progress soon. I got the flywheel, bell housing, and slave cylinder for the 3rz and started pulling the tacoma apart. Did a little post hunting wheeling the other day as well. Here is a Picture from the last race of the season. This is where all my time has gone.

It took two of my buddies and I a couple hours to get everything in a good spot. I could have got it closer to the dash but I really didn't want the main hoop right over my head. Id rather hit my knee than my noggin.

I got a little more done today for the weekend. I had some random little lights laying around from the red truck and I figured they would make decent rock lights. Not the best but better than nothing. Ill buy some nice led ones sometime down the road.

Thanks! Its funny how much motivation I got once I had a dead line to get it all done by this weekend. :shake:
I don't have any pictures but I finally mounted my rear shocks as well. Next will be my light bar. When I get back I plan on finishing parting out that tacoma and starting the 3rz swap! Im starting to get really anxious to get it in there.

Good lord!  People wreck, roll, or burn up a 95 tacoma around here and want $500 less than high value.  Congrats!

Oh, and I'm pretty curious for more boat racing details!

people around here usually want top dollar for there too! A buddy of mine bought the frame engine wiring ant tranny and he had to pay $1000.

What else would you like to know about the boat racing?

Boat and engine details?  Any video?

There a mercury 50hp out board engine with open exhaust and all the plastic, and electric start pulled off. They have a lightened flywheel and use a rope to start them. the engine sits on a custom race tower and lower unit. The tower and lower unit were both built by a local guy here. I can get more pictures and maybe a video to. The boats are made of thin plywood, they go anywhere from the mid 70s to low 80s in speed, they don't like to turn (they hook hard in corners and try to pitch you out) and if you don't pay attention and are running good they can blow over backwards. There sort of a death trap but are probably the most fun thing you can do on the water. We run them in the river through white water and all. Here is a picture from one of the races. These are the same place just two different angles. The blurry one just shows the height a little better.





        this last picture shows the engine a little better

My boa donesn't have that kind of acceleration but it is pretty trippy doing 75 and only being a few inches above the water. In a straight line wide open the only part of the boat thats in the water is the prop the rest is right above the surface
