91 4Runner 3 link front leaf spring rear riding low on 38s

So I had a build thread on here of my pos 4tunner Truggy build and something happen with my account and I can't get back into it so I'm starting fresh with a new account and a new build withe the parts from the Truggy. It turns out I suck at building truggys because this thing is fucking ugly so I'm tearing it apart and starting over.

Thaks, there were a few things that were bugging me about it one of which was my girlfriend always whining about the dust. I think 25" is as low as I am willing to go because I don't feel like cutting too much or tubing out the rear. I checked out your rig now that I'm back on here, it's coming along nicely.

If youre going to link it, 25" is way too high on 38s. Come on man, you can do better than that.

I'm not really sold on the whole super low thing, my 4Runner was hella high and it still drug the crossmember on shit. I would also like to have a little up travel in my suspension and I'm not gonna fuck around with flat bellying it. So 25 is low enough for me.

I know I just really don't feel like doing all that work right now, Maby later. I know I'm fucken lazy but I have limited time so I'm trying to prioritize and do only what is necessary for now

I was gonna buy frame plates but I decided to make them. Should have just bought them but fuck it mine are made from 1/4 so I guess they are a little beefier than the 3/16 ruff stuff ones.

Also my phone is a pos and I can't get the picture right side up.

I kinda liked the old rig also! But I totally understand needing the creature comforts of the new rig. Good deal!
