Finally got another set of rear king cab flares. Fits my wheel wells perfectly. Also makes the rear axle not look like it is moved forward, this is because the wheel wells are opened more in the rear

Also got a winch mounted. hidden behind the bumper, which is still in the same position. Added a pipe through the crossmember to strengthen it. A very strong and light solution. The crossmember was dented, but a BFH got it through

Lookin' good Shu!

Any close ups of the winch mount? I am curious how you got it on there and secure. The approach angle without a heavy winch plowing in front really helps

You always come up with the goods. I was going to do something similar but couldn't figure out anything clean enough looking to cut up my front clip.

This looks nice, clean, and blends in well. I may have to re-consider my front bumper, and do something more like what you have here.

Looks sweet with those flares and the way you've fitted the winch Shu

The best thing has to be the dash mounted angle finder though

Very nice work Shu. I've admired your builds and keeping things low for quite some time.
As soon as I find a dd to use instead of my sami, the mods start. Have the parts to change to 16V, YJ's spua using sky's front and rear kits and some other stuff.

I have to move the radiator back a couple of cm too, just so you consider that as well. Im happy with the amount of grill I had to cut. I really wanted a mid mounted PTO winch, with stock PTO-parts machined to fit the 6.5:1. But Ill do that later.

Thank you, just where I want it to be. Needs to be a tad higher in the front/lower rear as the front have settled a bit

That's good for a laugh.
The first thing I did with my brand new hard body Nissan was pull those flares off. The truck only had 46 miles on it, and the flare were flapping at the bottom and wearing off the paint.
I see a lot of those trucks running around with their paint bubbled ear their flares nowadays.

Maybe I should not have thrown them in the tip, eh?

Shu,
Tires I have right now (will trade or sell them-maybe) are new old stock 35X12.5X15 KM(not the current KM2). Would like to end up in the 32/33 size. May need to stay 31X10.5 as this will be going back to dd duties when done. I currently drive 60 miles round trip on interstate I-25 in Colo. to work. Need to keep up at least 65mph (traffic goes by at 80 on a 75mph limit).
But----I intend to retire next year so----.

I really like how your 33's fit. It's a sign of a good build when the end product appears "stock" (that is from someone with 50+ years of building hot rods/street rods).

Earl

31" sure sounds best for the road conditions, but we all know you will want bigger soon anyway. build it for 33" and run 31" for a year?

I appreciate the words, nice to hear from someone with 42+ years of more experience than me

You should be all set with the narrow track frame, easier to fit the tires, and you can add some more steering angle as well. The lwb sounds cool too.
The front bumper is free as most things on it, and it was my first fab project I can snap some pics for you when I reattach it

well the lwb is a sammi frame but it's going to landcruiser axles so I should have plenty of room to turn the tires b4 they hit frame The front bumper is free as most things on it, and it was my first fab project I can snap some pics for you when I reattach it. thanks man Im hopingto start that on it soon after I paintthe truck

I really wanted to mount my winch like that, but it would hit my radiator. I only have 1/2" of room between the fan blades and radiator right now, so I could not move the radiator back to obtain the necessary room. The winch looks great mounted like that!

I run a swift 1.6/1.3 radiator and a stock 1.3 mechanical fan. Without a shroud it is just enough room for the engine to flex. No problems with heat





Got some pics today, to show more details.

no, never. The sidewalls are so stiff, I run it on the road back and forth to where we wheel without bothering to air up, just a few minutes drive though. 8" wide rims. see pic above

Nice build. I did always like how mine was SUA and worn 32s


I hope that's not the stock cross-tube, or at least you pounded a pipe through it.
