4 Door Tacoma at the Jambo

There was a white 4 Door Taco running around the Jambo. Looked pretty nice...fabricated axle housings...Solid axle front. Anyone get any pics of this thing, or have any specs?

It'd be interesting to know the wheelbase on it as well. Seemed like a nice 4 passenger rig!

Thanks evryone.

I had a great time, even though I blew up my rear again. It seems I can talk to 20 people and 10 will say 40's are to big for a Tundra rear, and the other 10 say no way, should be fine, dudes are running 42's filled with water, making the tire too heavy to lift for one person and they don't blow the 3rd up. So I'm in a quandary to say the least.
Specs here.....
2001 Tacoma Double cab SAS conversion.
At the time of my build my truck was set up as follows, only MINOR things have changed liked tires, wheels and new bumpers etc.
Approx 12 inches of lift including 2" Body lift.
37 in Irok Radials
15x10 in MT classic 2 wheels
Custom width Diamond axles front and rear 4 inches wider front and rear from stock.
Front is 65 inches wide from WMS to WMS Inners are Longfields 30 spline.
The 3rd member in the front is a toyota HP 8" with 4.88 gears with an ARB locker
The rear axle is 64 inches wide and also has chromoly inners with a toyota 8" 3rd with 4.88's and an ARB and is a full floater with disc brakes. ( FROR set up )
The spring hangers, frame plating, steering box mount, cross member, and shackles on the front are all from Front Range Offroad Fab.
A 90's toyota IFS steering box is used to turn the truck, with Marlin Crawler High steering kit and pitman.
The front leafs are from Alcan Springs made to Tacoma weight but made the same as
85 Toyota Front stock length
3.0" lift
7 Leaf pack
7)- 7mm thick leafs
2.0" Center pin Offset toward the front

The rears are also Alcan and spec as follows
00 Tacoma Rear stock length
5.0" Lift
3)- 7mm Thick Leafs (8leaf pack)
1-1/2" extended on the tail
I also have a Front Range Offroad Fab clock-able Transfer-case cross-member
I am running 14" travel Bilstein 5150's all around.
Summit rear brake manually controlled proportioning valve.
Custom front bumper, warn 9.5 xp winch
rear is clearance cut with custom bumper.
PSC hydro assist steering kit.
Inchworm gear crawler clocked at 30 degrees and an almost flat pan skid custom made.

So far I have not really encountered a trail, and I wheel a ton on hard stuff, where I was wishing it was shorter. I may have had to work at a spot or 2 more than a shorter rig, but because I'm used to it, I really don't notice it as a shortcoming. I KNOW that I have benefitted plenty from the longer wheelbase on some obstacles that short ones struggled or had to winch on, because my front tires made it up and over a lip and could pull me up where the shorter rigs just could not climb up. so overall, I am very pleased and really only want to resolve my 3rd member nuking problem.
