2 seat chassis with 4 seats

Yea I've busted every 5.29 I've ever had. I just got a good deal on a ARB with a 5.29 and a spool with a 5.29 for a spare. I'm hoping I can make them last a few rides until I get the tons ready. Plus everybody wants 5.29s so I'm thinking they will sell easier.

CrawlinRunner I agree with the un-fun stuff.This summer im putting d60 and d70 under mine with a e locker rear and lock rite in front. Im still tring to figure gearing with 40 inch LTBs.
I gust replaced 8 inch toy 4:10 r&p. I droke 8, 5:29 r&ps in the last 5 years.

If I'm ever in a comp legal Ftoy and at a comp I don't think I would care if one of my competitors had a 4 seater with a bunch of extra tubes legal or not.....

That's not to say that anything goes. Narrowing or eliminating tubes is a different ball game.

When Mike didn't discourage it in the thread I started, I don't feel bad, either!

Maybe I'm getting older and wiser?


More likely I just don't give a shit any more and/or I know I can put it back like original if for some reason I want to. The older I get the more my motto becomes
"if it ain't fun I ain't doin it". Not being able to carry enough people and stuff is becoming Un-fun as is breaking axle parts. So I'm working to eliminate that which is Un-fun.

Now I'm thinking I'll wait until I get ready for the new axles, big engine, big tires and stuff then hack it all to hell and do it all at one time.

MT4Runner I also want to keep the FToy look, so I'm thinking something like this:

True and I'm thinking of Spider 609s, 39s and a turbo anyway.

I have considered that option but I hate to loose the "Ftoy-ness" of it. I like the wagon look ok but it doesn't look like an Ftoy anymore.

That's sort of why I'm thinking of the single suspension seat in the rear center so that person has a little more leg room between the front seats. I'd make a place to rest your feet above the rear case output.

Ftoy35 I shoved a 48" sunsension seat in the back, good for kids, 8 and under. now my kids are 15 and 11 they don't fit and forget about an adult! I'm not starting over either.............
03-05-2013 06:55 PM
chvyhs I know mine's a little different because its a 4 sweater to begin with but I ran a PRP seat for a Razor. I had them make it a little wider to fully use the width of the Toyota. The Razor seat works well because of the shorter seat area (from front of the seat to the vertical area). I'm actually considering selling my rear bench seat and just putting a single seat. The bench is a tight fit for adults.
03-05-2013 12:33 PM
skonkerd When i built mine i added the rear seat bar option. Then when i went back and added the jeep seat i wished that i had used a straight bar mounted farther back.That would have allowed me to move the seat back and gave more leg room. The seat was just a bit wider than the bends in the bar. I have had adults ride in the back but its usually chicks. I mean female friends of the family.., or cousins... or my sister yeah thats the ticket deff not chicks.
03-05-2013 08:30 AM
mtbrjon Cool. I don't have any kids to haul now though so I need enough room for adults even if they are cramped a bit. Just sayin i'm not sitting back there!

MT4Runner Here's my thread on converting the foam flip/fold seat into a suspension seat.

Seat pan is suspension, seat back is still thick foam, but I carved "buckets" into the back so the kids wouldn't slide into each other when we sidehill. It also made the seat deeper. I'd do it again in a heartbeat.

My fold + tumble tj jeep seat is 40" wide at the foam, but it's frame will sit between toy frame rails. I have to cut out the round crossmember it sits on now and will push it back ~4" for legroom and drop it the same 4" or a bit more. Bottom of seat will be at bottom of frame.
I will have to move my shocks and fuel back the same 4". At that point, I will probably move my fuel tank all the way back or make a custom cell that takes the Toy pump and sender.

I may just add a 3rd single suspension seat in the rear. Looking at the rig and measuring I won't have enough space for everything if I use a bench.
