I know that most of the old okiezuk coil kits used 150# QA1 14" coils & everyone was very happy with that rate.

But, I'm a cheap bastard who's desperately clinging to leaves.

Thanks for the help with the coils. I will start with 14"s in the front and see how I do.

Val with High Country 4x4 in Denver hooked me up with some 5/8 heims for the stock steering arms. I also got some 1.5 250 wall dom for the pan hards.
Thanks, Val.

Will have some pictures of tons of progress hopefully on Monday.

Sweet build! Picking up a 98'4door tracker tomorrow, will be checking your thread a lot. I like how you are using the firewall and floor, keeps it simple.

Picked up some RZR seats for cheap. Got the hoops in for the front. She is almost a roller. Going to need to do some major surgery to the sliders for the seats to work.

More dumb guy questions (That is Me)

My t-case in my 4runner is 90 weight. I pulled the rear drive shaft slip yoke out and the guts puked red auto tranny fluid in the tracker. Is this normal? I was expecting gear oil. leaking seal?

Funny

I pulled the front shaft thinking it was drained from pulling the rear and got myself a bubble bath of red auto tranny fluid from head to toe.

AWESOME!

The track/kick t-cases run 90wt GL5, someone had to put atf in it. There isn't really anyway the t-case can get atf from the transmission on these. If the transmission seal is bad there is a weep hole at the bottom where the two join.

Little front view. With the hoops up.



This is my little expirement. I have 5.5 back spacing on stock 17" 4runner rims and 37" stickies. There was no way the front could flex with the coil over mounted all the way down on the axle. So I have created a bracket for the coils to mount over the knuckle.

This will leave me plentyof room to remove the steering arm.



When I am rebuilding the axle, I will gussett the ball.

I have the front end on her own weight. Sits a bit high, but I still need to finish engine cage, some more tube work over the fenders, fill all the oil, tranny, radiator, and add the winch. So it should come down a bit.



Side shot. Back is at full stuff and front is sitting on the ground.



Side shot next to big brother.

I am trying, but it is wheeling season. I am going to start taking a bit more time and enjoy the summer. It is nice to have one running while building another. Knock wood. I would be pissed if I broke the big one and had TWO non running assholes in my garage.

..
......
That I have to walk by every day to go to work.

It is a sign to get back to work if my thread drops to page 2. Can't have that happen.

Started working on the seats. Cut the top part of the seat mounting frame down two inches and made my own top peices to mount the RZR seats. It is not done. I still have to add a little beef. It is already ten times stronger than stock and about 8lbs lighter on each one. Cool thing is now I have a tone of storage space under the seats, more head room and the slider function still works.



Worked on the hood. Still rough, but coming along. I will start pulling it off and do the finish sheet work. I also swapped in some 12" top coils that are lighter weighted, plus some keeper coils. The pan hard is now negative.



Side shot with new puppy.

There is a Jim Carry movie and I can't remember the name of it, but there is a part where he says

"B-E-A...utiful".. That is how I remember to spell that dam word.

These are yota axles. I am not sure what the bolt pattern is for the stock tracker 5 lug axles. I would measure if I still had them.

5 on 5.5

Less spelling lesson, more work

What are you planning with the front end?

Smash it into rocks!

Not sure. The Bud Light Gods and the Lawn chair have to discuss for a while

Started the visualization part last night after welding in the rear fire wall and reinforcing the seat sliders.

I realized that I need to finish the hood before I can move onto the front. The front will probably be the last thing that I build on this. The tracker needs to be able to drive on its own out of the garage. Right now I park the hummer in front of it. If I build the winch support and small hoop, I might not be able to fit both cars in a row. I can barely walk behind this now.
