Been tinkering with the trash truck. Swapped the tires over to some 15x8 wheels i had lying around. My OCD was kicking in and couldnt stand that there were two different wheels on either side. All of the new parts came in so i try and get rid of ht e death wobble and to fix the brakes.

I would tie that tcase crossmember into the stock mounting bosses on the crawl box. I cracked the 2nd to rear housing piece with my 80 hp in my samurai. They were never designed to have torque through those bolts, especially with the bushings out on the frame, there is no give.

Looks like you have a 1st gen problem I grew up in an 82. I have soft spot for them, but I have never built one since I just destroy my wheelers

Thats a good point. Ill see if i can tie into it somehow.

And yeah, I have a severe first gen affliction. this new one brings my total to 5 and a few other cabs/frames/etc and a metric fuck ton of parts to scrounge through. If i can find one in any condition for $500, ill drag it home.

Anyone know of a guy or company that will thin down the factory VVTi harness into a stand alone is it that is basically plug and play?

Decided to remove the drivetrain and install with something with half the cylinders. I plan on making it up with a turbo. New drivetrain will be 3rz/w56/single case.

Its doesnt look as impressive. If you notice the foil on the PS pump resi, youll see how much room i have before it hits the hood. I am going to raise the engine up 1-1.5".

Im still in.

My mom bought an 82 from the dealer in 84. I grew up in that truck, we used to go get lost in the mountains all the time. I have always had a soft spot for 1st gens.

She still has it, but it's been sitting for a long time. I've always wanted to do a "restomod" type build on it with either a 22re or 3rz. Maybe ome springs or the like and 32-33s. Just a solid driver.

A solid driver is what im after. I made the switch for ease of wiring. The 1uz had 100lbs (no lie) of wiring harness. I got this 3rz in a trade and it came with a stand alone ORS wiring harness. Should be much easier to get on the road.

Following for sure! Love your builds. Interested to see your turbo setup as that will be on my list of things to do

Looks like the RH side of the engine compartment might be tight for space now? With the differential, driveshaft, steering shaft, brake booster, master cylinder and exhaust all vying for space. Iím interested to see how you go about it.
