Righto, ive had some issues with the structural integrity of my lower link crossmember and the uni joints ive had with clearance. I changed from the DC joint to the stock yokes and used a front axle shaft to keep it small as it runs along the side of the gearbox and above lower links.

I really like the sky blue paint, is that a factory color?

No sorry. It's just some 1/2" plate folded to shape really.

It's not factory. I believe it is RAL 5012.

Looking good. What's the deal with those hubs bolting to the rotor like that? Is that the factory type hub that makes the front the same width as a wide track rear?

I've never seen a Toyota brake that didn't have that setup.

what locking hubs are those and what did you have to do to them (if anything) to get them to work on an 80 axle?

That's on my 91 model anyway.
I think newer models have dramas.

man those welds look awesome. Are you using a MIG or TIG? I am guessing MIG but it looks so consistent and flat like TIG.
Skills
got another 85 runner. build coming soon!!

Cheers! Mostly MIG there. A little TIG.
Both will be used a fair bit on this build.

Hopefully get better by the end for my next build!

There's always room for improvement, ID love to get to the point where I can get perfect consistency in all positions.
Thanks for the kind words
