I started this project when I was 15... Started with a stock 1986 toyota 4x4 pickup that my dad used as a work truck. This truck has been through 2 stages. First stage was SASed, stock drivetrain, 37" tires, 5.29 diffs, power steering (did not have any before), 5" leafs in the rear, 4" leafs in the front, exocage, and an extra seat in the back.

here is a before and after for the first stage of the truck:
Before:

In Between:

This is how it looks now, still working on it but it runs and we wheel it often :grinpimp::

Needed to get rid of the ifs asap!






Once finished with that, on went the leaf springs and solid axle...axle is from a 1985 toyota pickup:

After the new suspension was in, got started on some fabrication. Cut some of the sheet metal off and started with the exocage.

opened up the back for the extra seat, and more room for the front seats


making room for the seat...


Once that was in and bolted on, Got started with the cage :smokin:

Made the rock sliders and rear/front bumpers first... since they where the strong points for the entire cage:

Rear:


front:


Then came in the rest of the cage:








The final product with that cage:

You guys miss the current stage pic where the exo and bonerinsweatpants stinger is gone? :flipoff2:

Also, to the OP, where do you "wheel in often" that you don't have rock sliders or caved in rockers?
