Working on getting all the shiny stuff in position. Fox 2.5 shocks and fox 2.0 air bumps. The bumps still need landing pads front and rear.

Looks like the shocks will bottom out long before the bumps come close to touching anything.

Hopefully the landing pads solve that

no offense... but did you cycle the suspension at all to set up those bumps?

None taken. They will get reassessed once the springs break in. Anyone got any links or recommendations for setting up air bumps?

the proper way to do it is to break down your springs to the main leaf, use some sort of spacer in place of the other leafs, and put your axle to full bump (either shock travel, springs going flat, or clearance to frame, oil pan, etc). from there, you can locate and mount your air bumps. i would leave at least an inch of shock shaft showing if your shocks are outboard of the bumps to account for some articulation. hope that helps.

Ok, letís try that again. I use a ratchet strap to suck the suspension down instead of taking the leaf springs apart. Proper bump pads coming shortly.

Nice work man, way to take direction and not get offended. Knowladge will come with time. I think it's cool what you're doing.

Nothing too exciting, harnesses showed up. Still waiting on seats and window nets.

THIS IS AWESOME. You truly have the right idea. Cut, weld, Race. kudos!
Only thing I have for you (besides mild concerns over bobbed bed, but you have time to unbob it if need be), are the open tube ends. Ultra4 will make you cap those, you probably already know that. keep up the good work! Lets go pre run JV this fall!

Thanks man, just trying to keep it classy. All the ends of the cage are capped. The front and rear bumper still need to be finished. I think I am going with another piece of vertical tube and caps to close the ends off. Safety triangles!

Love the build. Been meaning to post up here. I moved up to the Fredrickson area about a year ago. I have been to every KOH but 2 and i am a toyota guy. I have a decent set of machines in my garage (mill, lathe, MIG, TIG, tubing bender etc). From the looks of it you are basically done but if you need a hand either up here or down at KOH I will be down there. And if I ever get my 1UZ 1st gen done I need to find some local trails.

Nice! Thanks man, I will definitely be needing a few bends to finish my bumpers. I will shoot you a PM when I get to that part.

I would make sure the pads are really beefy and try to get as much uptravel as possible. A friend of mine had a similar setup with only a inch or so before contacting the bump and the truck would pogo badly at any real speed. Food for thought. Otherwise I like the build a lot.!

LOL, itís good. With the ease in which the shafts and birfs went in, it seems pretty straight. It will have to do for now. Saving my pennies for a aftermarket housing.
Got a seat in.

Good, then you can get it the width you need and ditch those wheel spacers.
(If class legal, didn't look that up.)
