Picked this up last summer decided I should do something with it. Without the frame all I had go by was a hacked up frame I had. The bonus was I had papers for it.



Welded up some rails

Backed up the junkyard 5.3 with a 4l60e and a northwest fab black box and a cruiser case

Pulled it all apart to fish plate and add needed brackets to the frame.

I should probably mention I made the new frame at 30 inches wide which should allow me to use fj60 steering

That also helped with putting the drivetrain between the rails

Front axle was originally built for a landcruiser bj60 sixty that ended up have too much frame cancer.

Of course all the mounts and high steer had too go.

Currently stripped of the leaf perches and marlin high steer was swapped out for stock arms

With my knuckles being swapped for the front range off-road Tacoma kit the old caliper mounts are now on the front so I want to tie into those for the steering arms
