Well since the OP is a fag I guess I'll update it

After about 5 years of beating on this thing and it getting very little love, the time finally came to tear it down and rebuild. He cracked the bell housing on Rubicon after landing on a rock and pushing the skid plate up into the oil pan.

In order to get the transmission out, you have to pull the entire drivetrain and most of the interior. So that was the biggest driver on the teardown and rebuild. Swapped the 4L80 guts into a new case. Cut open the torque converter to inspect, only to find out that it had the wrong stall (1600 instead of 2500) so put a new impeller in to try to get it to 2100-2200. Also rebuilt the T case and put in new chain and bearings.

Now onto the fun stuff. The engine has always been pretty sad and never really seemed like it was running to its full potential. So this was a good excuse to rebuilt it and throw some more ponies in there. New heads, cam, injectors, etc. Should put it at around 550 on pump gas.

The OP is actually locked out of his pirate account, like many others. So he'll probably come back with a new (more fitting) name.

I stole some spy pictures off Facebook in the meantime. Sorry, they were taken late Saturday night after we finally landed the drivetrain. Things were getting weird after a long day #MakeThunderPuppetGreatAgain #TrumpApproves #TrumpToyota

You've played bumper cars with this truck. You know there are no safe spaces.

Glad he got best of show.

In years past there was a heavy bias towards the rock bouncers for best of show.

Because of this quote, I believe it is appropriate that you post your response to Photobucket here.
