2.5 ton Toyota (Sawed off)

I am finishing a project started by a buddy of mine. He needed money and I always wanted his truck so I picked it up. It will be a mud race/bog truck built to take a beating. "Game on" is not going to be the name. that is his name for his next project. I posted it in the Toyota section, here's the link to it:

http://pirate4x4.com/forum/showthread.php?t=984154

The specs are:
1986 Toyota Cab
Ivan baja kit
2x3 tube frame with 2" sub frame
Wishbone four link with hiems
2.5 ton axles
468 bbc roller
turbo 400 built by Whites Transmission
ProFab 12" drop transfercase.
10" travel Big Shocks Coil-overs
full caged
A little bit of go juice.

i noticed the upper links are unique, has that been used before? would it be to help with "body" roll?

Back is just about set. I lifted the rear coil-overs because they settled down to only 3" of travel with the extra weight.

Wired

Got my orbital mounted.

The build looks great. The distance between the axle housing and the tie rod changes as the steering wheel moves from centre to the edge. Your ram to tie rod mount does not allow for this change in distance.

You might want to look again because it is free of any binding lock to lock using about 9" of the 10" cylinder.

Decided I needed to shave some weight so I put it a lighter brake pedal.

Started remounting the fenders last night and figured I would change directions. I am going to build a baja style bumper and use it to support the fenders and grill.

Well I need some feedback. I bent a rock bar and wonder what you think. Too big?

not understanding why you need one, but i would say too big.

honestly i would remove it all together.....but your project, everything else i love about the build....keep up the great work!

or perhaps build a brush guard type bumper....
