I got a sneak peek of this front suspension over at The Rock Shop, and it is looking sweet! I think this Runner is gonna wheel places that it probably shouldn't! Let's have fun trying!

Sorry this took so long, here is the dash through the windshield. I still have the pieces that fit into the gaps and when I have the windshield out I am having a vinyl repair company complete the dash.

With the IFS cut off and the rear sump oil pan on it is time to get started. The first thing that needed to be addressed was the transmission crossmember/lower link mount. Scott decided it was best to sleave the frame and make the member removable. He did a great job of keeping it high and also giving us the seperation that we needed.

Yes, of course there will be alot more guesstes and bracing, this is at mock up stage. That will all come on the final tear down and weld up, so we know what we have to clearance around.

What to do

Sitting here in Scott's garage and realizing how heavy this pig is going to be. He is saying we should do some aluminum bumpers instead of metal ones. What's your guys thoughts??? It'll cost more, but IMO the weight savings and cool factor outway the money.

I might have missed it but I assume you're using a Toyota 8in diff in your diamond? Sorry if it's already been stated.

I think an aluminum plate setup would be titties, would be pricey but judging by what you have done so far you would save by building it yourself. Looking good dude!

My alum beadlock rings develope little metal "splinters" when worked against rocks. I don't mind the looks so much but the things are dangerous untill you knock the burrs off. I assume a bumper would be similar depending on how and where you used it. Maybe an alum/steel hybrid where steel plate or tube is the primary contact point and the rest is alum? The contrast might really set it off too.
