Snomexican Pickup build.



Picked this up last summer decided I should do something with it. Without the frame all I had go by was a hacked up frame I had. The bonus was I had papers for it.



Welded up some rails

I should probably mention I made the new frame at 30 inches wide which should allow me to use fj60 steering

That also helped with putting the drivetrain between the rails

Front axle was originally built for a landcruiser bj60 sixty that ended up have too much frame cancer.

Of course all the mounts and high steer had too go.

Currently stripped of the leaf perches and marlin high steer was swapped out for stock arms

No idea how to add pictures. But you should at least 5th stud those arms. And 7/16 hub bolts instead of studs

With my knuckles being swapped for the front range off-road Tacoma kit the old caliper mounts are now on the front so I want to tie into those for the steering arms

This is actually a better picture as it shows it with the factory steering arms back on

Had a few hours today to spare so I slammed out the front suspension. A huge thanks to ruffstuff for the kit. It only needs a few tweaks to get it working at a 100 %
