I have got to say I love the responses and I am figuring out if this is real or a joke and if harbor freight is selling this cake decorator.

Its gonna be a while before we see any progress

Just because you have the tires (or got them for a smoking good deal) doesn't mean you should run them.
Also can be said for owning a welder.
If you own a welder, it doesn't mean you should/can weld with it.
Learn to weld or the first time you hit that skinny pedal, the drivetrain will fall right out from under your truck, and then all you'll have left is the tires to sell.
And the cycle repeats itself with the next sucker to buy those tires.

I think its time to step back and rethink some things along with addressing the current 'ability' of the fabricator/welder working on this. So far it looks like ur trying to put something together thats a bit over ur head?

Where is the OP? did the cinderblocks fail and the truck land on him? That would be sad, I wanted to see video of this truck attempt to move on its own.

Truck hasn't fallen. Hasn't been touched really. I've been thinking that I've set my goals a bit high. So the truck is undergowing a rethink. Bbc rocks and 49s is quite a bit more than I would need. So new plans. I'd like to keep the tons under it about a 40-44 size tire (thinking 42 tsl/ Irok) trans and tcases the same. For power plant Sbc for simplicity. Have also looked at diesel 4bt's or om617. 4bt's arn't that available ya some on eBay but sellers think they are worth their weight in gold. Om617 a kinda on the low end for power. Sbc will more than likely be the route I go.

Don't get discouraged man, just take your time and have some one that knows a thing or two about welding help you out. We all got to start somewhere man. Go to your local fan shop and have then shear you up some 2"x5" plates an practice welding them in all positions. For a taco to work well on 49" iroks and not be a sky scrapper you need to cu ALOT out of the body. Just take your time man.

I believe that this is a super smart thing to do. You will be more than happy with the 42's and that drivetrain. It is very easy to get caught up in the hoopla of having an extreme rig...then one day you realize that you have built yourself out of a vehicle. I would be happy to have a 4runner on 35s or 37s that I could still drive on the street, but I have already built one on rockwells that is offroad only...really makes it a one trick pony!!

As for the welds. I am not a pro. You all can see that. Lol. This is no excuse for not addressing the bad welding as soon as it was happening. In my defense I was using a welder that's circa 1800s. I can actualy lay a decent bead with a wirefeed. But its only a 110v miller and worried it wouldn't penitrate deep enough on the thicker steel. I'd rather use the Lincoln generator/welder that my boss has. Prob is its most the time it's on the job not at the shop my truck's at. The 4" square tube is 1/2" thick will a 110v be able to do the job or do I need a 220v? I'm not getting rid of the 49s their just going to have to wait for better fab skill and more wheeling expiriance on what works and what doesn't. They will be saved for a complete tube buggy/crawler

it might get the right penetration if you prep it better atleast 80% of welding is prep. put a bevel on it and for the love of fuck get the rust off!!

I just sold my miller 210 because it was a pain to haul around Everywhere i did welding and get to 220 anywhere i went. I picked up a hobart 140 to do all my fabwork with. Its a 110volt and easily up to the task of truck/rockcrawler fabrication. People who swear u need 220 volts to weld 3/16-1/4" steel dont know wtf the are doing and/or talking about. Fab shops or steady garage fabbers like myself only have the bigger machines for the duty cycle not because they are using higher settings on the machine which would require the higher voltage...
