Hell yeah. Are you gunna fire up a build thread on it? I'm going with Toyota cases I'm like 85% sure. Just so much easier to fit it all under there and I don't plan on rock bouncing this thing.

That went through my mind when I was unboxing them. We'll see how everything plays out. I think that's to clear his shock towers of you buy them?

the 90 will clear the towers. Even a 45 would be helpful. I put some protection around the hose on mine because they are precariously close to rubbing the inner fender.

Maybe one day i'll change over - too lazy to right now.

If you use Brian’s towers (Don’t see em) do not mount until you finalize your booster/mc solution.

Trust me.

Make sure you go with the 1 ton m/c. I ran rear brakes only for a while with the stock toy m/c, then installed the stock front brakes back on the d 60 and had to redo some stuff to install the gm m/c.

Jeez itís been a while. Finally got the Tacoma rolled in the garage on the 20th. Rear end is mocked up right now on its own weight the front is all tacked up Iíve been cycling it figuring out where everythingís limit is. I wanna raise the motor and possibly notch the frame in hopes of a lower ride hight. Iíll post pics later today off full bump and how close that panhard is to the oil pan and how it sits now with the new rims and tires on it.

Hell of a build thread so far

The truck is pretty close to done. still a decent amount to do to wrap it up. but lets get updated up until to point im at now.

didn't chop the frame at the firewall and looking back I kinda think I should have. either way got the ifs outta there pretty quick with the plasma and started getting things prepped for the frame plates.

Tacoma 3 link

seeing where things want to be. had to make my own steering box section for the wfo frame plates to get the steering box to sit flatter.

I ran all new 3/16 hardline brake lines and took out all the abs garbage that was on the passenger fender. it had a single diaphragm booster with a 2 bolt pattern so I swapped it out with a dual diaphragm from a 2000 Tacoma and I was able to get it to work but I had some issues with the linkage. theres a weird notch when you first apply the brakes. if I gave the linkage rod a little more throw I think I could get out of that notch zone but I don't know if will eventually build pressure and lock the brakes up. going to give it a shot and it it doesn't work look into a new booster/master combo possibly.

this is how it sits now. I rigged up a crossmember for the 2wd trans just so I could drive it. handled pretty good for no rear shocks lol. soon after driving it I swapped the front springs to 150 over 200 and put some radflo resi shocks on the rear. still lots of little tuning to do but im happy with it so far.



picture from when I brought it home to sitting in the driveway with my brothers Tacoma.



behind the local winco checking some clearances measuring for limit straps (mall crawling)

ive been building some Toyota cases too. got marlin 23 total spline inputs in both cases and 30 spline front and rear outputs. should be fine for what I want to do. not looking to beat the piss out of this thing. but I got those mated to the 4wd trans I found from a fella in chico. waiting on a horse collar cut out so I can start building the rest of the crossmember and get some driveline measurements.

I was playing around with center console ideas because I don't wanna build a whole new one. so the simplest thing I could come up with was just a plate with shifter slots and a cup holder covering the old cup holders I cut out.



bent up part of an angine cage for now too just to brace the towers so they don't fold in on themselves



trying to do the most that I can with only being able to mess around with it on the weekends. the goal is to make it to the roundup here in the next couple weeks but its not looking like ill be able to make it. well see.

I'm curious why you mounted the upper link on the passenger side ? Most 3-links have them on the differential/driveshaft side. It does seem like it simplifies the mounting brackets a bit, and may allow more uptravel, since there is no truss going over the chunk.

Easier to package in this case. With the exhaust and driveline on the passanger side not much room for the upper link. Iím sure it can be done tho If thatís where you want it to be. When I got the 4wu kit I had a long talk with Brian about the options and this is the one we decided would work the best.

Bringing this thread back from the dead. I’ve been daily driving the truck for a couple months now and trying to dial in the suspension. It drives super nice down the road and 80+ down the free way. Haven’t had the chance to get on the trail yet. Still waiting on the snow to melt on the rubicon but it looks like sometime in June we’re gunna make a trip.

I need to post some more pictures. I’ve got a rear bumper built for it. Got my 5.38s in and a ARB in the front. Need to put my winch on and build a front bumper. But the more I look at it I want to cut off my frame at the firewall (something I should’ve done from the beginning).

My buddy was selling some 2.5x14 king coilovers and bypasses for a good deal so I picked those up. Since body lengths are different I have to re do shock hoops and bring them up a little higher so I might just cut the frame and re do it rather than just shock hoops. I don’t know yet we’ll see id like to actually do some wheeling before I cut it all apart.
