Man I dig it! It may not be show-n-shine quality but I am a fan of function over form! Nice work John!

Forgive me if I missed it, but reading through your thread I wanted to know on the tranny tunnel when you raised your drivetrain did you do anything with the motor mounts? I know I should probably remove the stockers and fab up new ones in the adjusted loaction. I am already setup for a flat belly and just need to cut away anyhow love the build, one of my favs for sure

I just loosened the engine mount bolts at the engine and the frame when I raised the tranny and than tightened them down afterwards. There is enough play in the mounts for the amount the drivetrain is rotated.


Update: I am driving the 4runner about 200 miles a week as my daily driver plus hitting some local trails. no issues so far except my alternator going out on me. I also added trailer wiring and it does a decent job of towing 3400 pounds, 1400 pound trailer/2000 pounds coal except up the big hills.

It has been a bit cold in the garage so I have only been doing required maintenance and fixes but have a pile of parts to add to the build when it gets a little warmer.

Awesome, I am cutting mine up then. Thanks for the response. I have been going back and fourth for the last year since I set up my FROR style crossmember and it would be so easy to slam that thing up a little bit more for the flat belly.

Hi-Lift Mount

I wanted a way to securely mount my hi-lift jack on one of the down tubes of my cage. I have been looking for different ideas at work and came across these in a dirt track catalog



They are normally used to hold weight in a specific place on the cars but with a 1/2/13 hole I figured they would be perfect for attaching the hi-lift. Worked out great for now. The nice thing is, if I don't like where it is mounted, I can just unbolt it and move it.

I also finally got around to mounting a fire extinguisher behind the driver seat and also got a set of factory buckets installed. Since the 4Runner is my main/only mode of transportation the Corbeau's were not the best choice for seats comfort wise.

Thanks! I've been trying to figure out a way to securely mount my hi-lift on my FToy...and still have the option to move it around.

First I've heard of a TTORA run at Gore. Considering I'm on PA-TTORA and MATC(what used to be Midatlantic TTORA) you would think people would know these things Its not anywhere on either forum

I could have swore it was the same time, When I went to mark the RC one in my calander I already had the other one listed. I must have been on meds at the time and wrote the wrong location. I just checked Big Dogs site and it is not there.

sorry for the hijack... continue on

I don't live in Williamsport I live 5 miles out of town and currently have a little coyote problem. I didn't even realize you could see that until you said something.

Kajo, do you have any shots of your upper link mount to motor mount clearance? How much shaft do you have showing on your air shocks? And yes I asked about your shaft
