Can you guys post up your R/S? I am gonna have to do one of these on my cruiser, and don't want to buy a kit. I plan on building my own, and then incorporating the P/S into it. Right now the P/S gear box is blocked in witht he stock shackle mounts. I am gonna have to grind those off, and then weld a new setup in its place.

Thanks

I jsut did a search,and I really like space ghosts setup. Integrated into the bumper is kinda cool. I am considering running some YJ front springs and XJ rear ones. This should work well in the long run. If you got pics, post up.

I just e-mailed Butchbuilt to find out about his setup. I really like it especially howw the PS box is really high up and out of the way.

I am gonna go wider than stock on this setup, so I have to outboard the front hangers as well.

Where in Disco you from? My sisters boyfriend is on the water right down teh road from Disco. I used to spend some time on Marlin Drive Wakeboarding a lot.

Dima,
Give Butch a couple days to respond. He's been out, but should be home today or tomorrow I think. I have his shop # someplace if you have trouble getting ahold of him. If you're in a hurry, I have one of his kits I have not used yet, just have Butch replace it...
BTW, Actually I'm in Rio Vista....

There is a place called Dirty Del's. I have been kicking it there riding all the time. You know where it is?

I will give Butch all the time he needs. I am no serious rush right now.

I have Butch's kit on my cruiser too. You'll dig it. It was alot of welding, but easy to install aside from that, and makes the front of the cruiser waaaay stout. You'll probably want to fab up a bumper after installing the kit.

I think I know who you are. Its hard to associate PBB handles to faces to rigs.... Your rig is primer grey or olive drab....
I hope to hit the rubicon again this year, but moneys been tight. Maybe I'll take the long way when i go on my anual steelhead trip in late october.

I was supposed to be out that way on Sat, but had to bail. Dirty Dels is out in Byron. It is really a shady place, but FUN!!!! I will have to give you a shout next time I head out there.

I do plan on Running Butch's setup. I really like the way he builds it. As for welding, I am not scared of a little welding.

heres the kit I got from Butch last year (excuse the surface rust, that is MY fault)

10 peices, not including the bolts. It boxes both sides and top of both frame rails, puts a PS mount on, and extends the frame 2 inches I think. you reuse the solid spring perch, or buy new from toyota. the plates that are screwed together in front get seperated and one is welded to the frame ends and the other to your choice of bumper. I think they are optional too, depending on your bumper choice.

EDIT: the hole in the left plate is for the VIN to show through.

i'm poor, so i went the free route...torch rivet out of old hangers and remove...do not damage old hangers. remount rear on the front. cut the tube section out of front hanger. cut two holes in frame and weld in the tubes from the front hanger. using a broom handle or long metal pipe with a level is a good way to make sure you get the tubes lined up correctly before welding.
