So technically, if my truck were on 35s, it would sit at 21.5 to the frame

Got the radiator and ac condenser half mounted yesterday. Had to notch one of the engine cage tubes to get the discharge line to fit, dammit, oh well. Need to find an oem replacement line to put in since I broke the current one and put a splice in. I trust the splice to hold vacuum and pressure but Id have a little more room around where I notched the tube. Smarter decisions could have been made to avoid this

Jackstands and kickstands are 2 entirely different things when you're talking about women.

Sounds to me like you may have Jackstand envy.

Technically, yes it runs... the better and more important question is, will it pass smog?

It ran well enough to take the place of my grocery getter when we had Hail coming.

You guys have smog in AZ now?? That blows!

Got a bunch done today, just need to pull the grill again and mount the trans cooler somewhere then final tear down and more Steel It. Cant wait to drive it again And its REALLY nice to not have that shitty core support anymore. Always hated those things. Now if I need to mount anything, make a tab and weld it on, super easy.

Ready for paint tomorrow! One last coat and re assembly will begin for the final time (for now)

Also bought a new brake master cylinder with a smaller bore, $27 on Amazon. Its very possible the one I was running had a 1.3125 bore, way too big for my setup, had a hard pedal and not that much braking power (more volume but less pressure). Stepped down to a 1.125 bore master from a 1997 Dodge B2500 van. Supposedly the master is supposed to have a 9/16-18 front port and 1/2-20 rear port which is the same as the big cast iron Chevy one but mine came with a 9/16-20 front port. Hoping I can cross thread a 9/16-20 die over my Sky brake line adapter and run it. All it needs to do is hold the Toyota line on the master and not leak haha. The new master fits way better and looks nicer than the old one too I did have to hog out the holes on the new one outward a bit to get it to bolt to the Sky booster adapter, no biggie though. Small 1/8 hog bit on the dremel made short work of it
