The Cream Pie - A 2005 Tundra Build

No sub-forum for the Tundra so I am putting this here for all to mock and ridicule. As some know, i already have a fully built crawler, The Dirt Squirrel 2.0. Its been great wheeling it all over the country, but it has always had one drawback. I cant drive it on the street. Full hydro, unbalanced 43s, etc..blah blah blah. So this leads me to build the Cream Pie.

Some details:
Base vehicle is a 2wd 2005 Tundra with a 4.0l v6 with a 6-speed manual transmission. 247k miles. Decent shape for the age/mileage.

Plans:
SAS with a 05+ Ford Super Duty 60 and a factory disc braked 14B. Built up with some lockers (detroit and grizzly). Front will get the 17+ larger shafts if i can find them.
3-linked front with hydro assist, deaver leaf rear with maybe a cantilever shock setup (always wanted to do that)
6.0L LS swap with a NV4500, 261 t-case (for now)
40" Toyos on 17" ATX Chamber Pro 2s
14" 2.5" Dia. Accutune Fox Coilovers
Bumpers/Sliders/Cage
hydroboost from the chevy (maybe)

Base Vehicle - As vanilla as a Tundra could get


Threw it on the lift and installed the 14b on the stock leafs. The pad spacing is basically the same as the Tundra rear so i bolted it up.




Picked up the wheels from a friend (krawlers were sold). Since the 05+ super duty is about 4" wider than the 14b, i bolted on some 8x6.5 to 8x170mm spacers.





Engine and transmission out


Choppy choppy. IFS cut off forward of the body mount. The tundra frame is super flexy so the new front frame section will be plated to the body mounts.


Mockup to check stuff and be a poser for IG


More on next post

Start of the front frame section using some 2x4x.120 that i had on the shop floor. The stock tundra frame is basically straight to the front grille. The new one is about a 4-5" rise for panhard/draglink clearances.





Took a couple months off from the cream pie and built me a run around truck from a rolled tacoma and a 2wd 79 hilux. I give you Elma, the 4wd IFS 3rz/5-speed '79 hilux. I call it the first gen first gen.


Next to the Squirrel


Ass shot


Back to the Tundra. Took a while to find for a decent deal, but here is the donor for the drivetrain. 05 Chevy 6.0/nv4500/261 with 148k miles on it. Drove it 4 hours home. parked next to my tacoma (which is for sale)


LS mocked up


Plenty of room for a radiator and fan


Tundra radiator in to check clearance. room for days. If you have built a mini truck or tacoma, you know how much room you dont have in those things. This was nice. Stock manifolds clear the frame rails by a mile.



NV4500 bolted up against the floor. I had to beat the tunnel in a few small placed to get everything to fit as high as possible. Not bad at all though.

Modified the stock tundra crossmember with the mount off the Chevy crossmember and bolted in the 261.


Room for the driveshaft


Bonus, the stock chevy one piece driveshaft bolted right in. May have got lucky there.


Mounted the 40" Toyos




D60 mockup. Fancy tierod included. If you havent cleaned the radius arm brackets off one of these axles, then you havent lived.


Had to make some big boy snap ring pliers to get the ford snap rings off to remove the locked up unit bearings. NOTE to everyone. Check if the unit bearings are free before you buy a $300 front axle from the junkyard.


Steering box mockup. Using an IFS box




Big order from Ruffstuff during their holiday sale

Another from Artec to get their free shipping and 15% off holiday sale. So i went ham and ordered all the links and steering/drag link material to save on shipping.


Start of the 3-link. Used the Artec Combo brackets. Had to notch the factory crossmember for the lowers.




Shit pic but the truss to oil clearance is about 1/4". I may notch the truss some to get additional room.


Upper tacked in. I had to redo my passenger engine mount to get it to clear at full bump. Needed to be raised an inch and a half.


Tie-rod built. Using the Artec weld on crossover steering arms.


First panhard mockup. NOTE to others: Wait until you get the steering box position set before you waste time on the panhard.




Won me a set of the Nick Barna BJ Eliminators on a FB waffle page. Score.


Installed my flat pitman arm from Skys offroad and built the drag link. This is at ride height. Panhard in in the pic. Same angle.

This let me set the panhard to match the drag link. Both are the same angle and damn near the same length.




Thats where i am at as of last night. Going to use the lift to check for binding and clearance issues throughout the range of motion for the suspension. If everything checks out, im going to put some strong welds on things and weld some temp shocks in so i can make this a roller and get it off the lift. Its been on there for 4-5 months now. Need to work on other stuff while i wait for my Tacoma to sell so i can order up the coilovers from Accutune.

Make PIRATE4x4 great again.

Dang. Ill see what i can do if they arent working for others. This forum blows for adding pics. They need to update with the times so you can just drag and drop.

The tundra used the 3.4l 5-speed from 00-04? and switched to the 4.0l in 05 and used a 6-speed. Same engine and trans as the tacoma. Some of the early 3.4 trucks were 4wd but i dont think any 4.0l trucks were 4wd with a manual.

I see them now.

An IFS first gen!?!? How dare you!

I've always thought that would be a cool/somewhat easy build. I recently acquired the 82 4x4 that I was brought home from the hospital in I have too many memories of the anemic 22r and 4spd to change it too much though. It may just get a fresh 22r, not sure. I'd like to have it be a solid driver though, just need 1/10th of your motivation and I'll be done it no time.

Sweet build do far. It's nice seeing a build like the good ole' days of Pirate.

I'm always impressed how 2nd rigs that are non buggies for many Pirate members are still made stronger then most people's main rigs. This thing destroys my wheeler.

Can't wait to see the finished project

Thanks guys. Yeah the first gen first gen was a fun one. Its has the full tacoma dash inside along with the taco seats and center console. I want to turbo the 3rz so bad and builld a long arm front suspension for it.

Best part is that 95% of the people looking at it dont realize its not supposed to be IFS. only the 5% of us realize something fishy is going on. I need a drivers bed flare for it, then it wont look so high in the ass end.

Yeah I wanted your 2WD on a Tacoma chassis. Everything here is long gone to the rust.

That one was super clean....at first. the rust was starting to poke through along the bed seams like all first gens do. I sold it before it got out of hand. This one had a few bad spots in the floor due to a shag carpet install and leaving a window down for months/years. Its just a cheap run around rig that i can haul trash to the dump or run into town and get breakfast. It was really quick to build since everything is basically the same size. Only had to move around the body mounts some to make everything jive.

It will get bumpers and sliders for sure. Maybe/Probably a cage of some sort.
