85 pickup build
Whats up everyone starting a build post so can get some ideas and feedback for my build. I made a lot of mistakes in the process so if anyone has any questions post it up maybe ive dealt with it. This is going to be a long one so bare with me. I got it stock and beat up gross polluter broken spring shocks the works. Here in california was seemingly a death sentence. Was able to replace tps the non seating valves and broken timing chain and was semi good to go. Im going to post pics out of order with description of the mods being done so its easy to quote for help or feedback.

Heres one of the earliest pictures on this phone. I believe I was fixing my Chevy leaf conversion. And bobbing the bed at the time. So my measurement was 1/4 inch off and the angle on my rear axle was off so I eventually fixed it. I'm usinv the missing link shackles in the rear slightly mpdifies and love them. I'm going to skip through a bounch of mods but will touch on them slightly so stop me if there's a question or comment.

Lol my first time towing. This truck had only been towed 2 times under my ownership. I try to drive it to and from the trail. And the tacoma in front did not pop a wheelie.

Ok heres some random stuff. Made a center console custom e brake setup changed my cam to 261. I also put a Detroit in the front recently. Changed the seats to fancy racing seats with harnesses. I'm about to add some more hitches so I can move my winch in a better location and mount a flag.

Heres a few pictures of my new hitches and winch storage area. One reciever will be for a flag the other is winch storage and the bumper one is to mount the winch in the rear when necessary. If I were less lazy I wouldve made my winch storage in a better area. When i roll it will take damage. So when i do dumb stuff I'll say hold my winch instead of hold my beer.
