Axle has been rebuilt with 4.88 gearing with a detroit truetrac. Took it out wheeling and everything worked great pulled like a champ

And last but not least a pic of my 1984 4runner, waiting for ARB lockers front and rear I ordered from Marlin Crawler. This is the truck I was debating between Detroits & ARB's and with help from all of the fine folks here at pirates I was able to make a final decision

Damn, man, you got a thing for white Runners?!

Looks like you swept the garage frequently--looks a lot cleaner than my SAS process!

Clean build--just a funny photo order!

Yeah the picture order is all over the map, oh well keeps ya guessing
We did sweap allot and if you look close there is a leaf blower in a few pics we fired it up a few times. I like to keep a clean work area, a little OCD I guess . Anyway thanks for the comments we will be lifting the rear tommorow the front is just a bit higher than the back right now. And to comment on the white 4runners the 87 runner that got the SAS is a buddys he had his first then he found my 84 for 1700 and I bought that well my father inlaw just could not stand not having one and he went out and got his just happen to be white. So as it stand my buddys 87 is 4 RUNN 1 and the rest to follow.

why don't more people cut the corner of the frame so the front crossmember actually sits hard against the frame?

It does set hard against the frame on the ends where most of the stress is at. The middle does not take the same kind of load really just ties it together. But either way would be fine.

yeah, they all hold together - just remember seeing, I think in Rick's thread, the bottom layer cut off the corner so the new crossmember sits nice and hard against the old crossmember. Just seems a little cleaner.
