I thought I would wait until after the beginning of the year to start my build. Give myself time to get rid of some other rigs and generate some $$. I have an old "beater" 4runner that I had planned to wheel over the winter and into next year while we built the Ftoy. Change of plans! See the pics below. Smashed the body, hydrolocked the engine (now it's knocking), bent both rear springs, etc...It looks like my regular trail rig the black 4runner that's my avatar may be sold so I need a trail rig and a test bed for the auto trans and I want to get used to driving the Ftoy. So we decided to accelerate the build and be ready for a Thanksgiving ride at Monteagle, TN.! That's 26 days away. It won't be the supersweet build that I had intended but it will be built right with no bootyfab. I'll have to change some things If I want to compete like the birf elim's, add an ARB to the front at least. I will likely just wheel this for a while and start another rig for comps. That will likely take 6 months or so to complete. I drove the 4 runner into the shop this morning at 9 am and it looked like this.
