I am just fucking with you. Reading the shit you type reminds me of any toothless tweaking fuckstick from Georgetown ca.

Build a crossmember between the mounts for the backs of the control arms and bolt in a skid plate to hold the front suspension together. Or you will be sorry with a broken front differential and a paperweight ARB. Maybe even support it from impacts by running stiffeners from the trans crossmember to the bottom of the control arm brackets.

Figured you were. Not a toothless tweaker. I did put a brace on the back side of those a arms. I think the skid plate is probably a good idea.

Trust. It is. Unless you want a front suspension that fucks up your tires and is not able to be aligned after your first drop into a ditch.

So that skid plate would span between the front and back a arm mounts?

Yes. Make it cover bottom of diff. Make a hole so you can get to the drain plug if you want.

The reason I brought up the weight question was because of the first post. In my mind a "desert" truck labeled as a "hybrid crawler/racer" is going to see some speed in the wide open whoops. Weight is a killer in this department and the 1st gen runner is a bit of a top heavy pig with its fiberglass top.

IMOP this just isnt the best platform to start with. I gutted Krunch https://www.pirate4x4.com/forum/toyot...ry-krunch.html and got it down to 3650lbs. I understand this is what you have and your plans revolve around it. If it was me, and I was using this to go as fast as I could in the desert with it, I would ditch the hard top and gut the hell out of it.

The track width is 7 1/2 wider than stock. Shouldn't that offset a quite a lot of top heavyness?

I saw a guy on here that fabbed up a set out of his stock fenders and another pair. think that's what I'm going to do. Ideas for the back would be great!

nice snorkel... Where in the desert bomber/rockcrawler world does that belong? I ask everyone I see with one why and have never herd a valid answer from anyone other than an Australian guy.

So, why the snorkel? Do you plan on some 5+ foot water crossings? Are your difs sealed with vents that high? How about the trans and tcase?

Nice to see something different brought to the table! I've always thought a long travel IFS rig would be great for expo type stuff, running around on dirt roads, and the occasional rock crawling. A master at nothing, but does everything well.. Looks like you did a great job.

Ignore all the typical Pirate hate..

Other than the cool factor, I ran a snorkel on my FJ60 for dust control as well as deep water crossings.

All my vents were above door sill height and had one way check valves installed.

This guy has a cool as build

Mad props to OP

I'm not hating on the build at all, most of it is very cool.

Just cut the rear fenders and front fire wall. Snorkel ?... don't plan on doing any 5' + crossings but you never know what you will run into so it's there if needed. All vents are one way check. The point is to come against no obstacles that can't be past. BEASTMODE!
