Honestly couldn't tell you but its heavy enough that the two of us couldn't move it more than a few feet so quite a bit it sits pretty level with the 5" springs in rear but I would guess somewhere around 400 lbs

Well small update, front axle housing number two is bent have to pull it and take it to the co-owners uncle who salvages cars for a living, but yesterday we cleaned up the interior installed a stereo and fixed our climate controls and removed the 4 different kinds of speaker wires, the parts store cheapie tach that didn't work, and the two different cb hookups that where still live and wired directly to the barrery, the dash looks infinitely better. also picked up some doorhandles at the junkyard and tore the locks appart to make our key fit, its not perfect but I don't think other keys should work with it. I will try and get some pics tuesday night. btw does anyone happen to know the routing of the rear brake light wire? ours is broken at the switch behind the pedal and I can't find the rest of the wire with the exception of at the back of the truck.

Well its been busy lately with girl school and what not, but we finally got around to straightening the axle housing, shafts slide in beautifully now, will have pics tomorrow of some shitty little guseets I made to hopefully help a little bit with the bending, but in all honesty, I don't think they will do shit now that I put them on, also have vid of the jump that bent housing (you can actually see its bent when he jumps it this was the second jump)
Also got a 2wd parts truck for a hundred bucks that a friend robbed the motor out of, I got the doors and various interior pieces, and a complete spare set of glass, so we now have a complete interior with the exception of one door panel, and kick panels which is nice, and I have started work on half doors, although I have no idea when I will have time to finish them.

The axle straightening setup we used, thats a 12 ton jack and some very beefy 3/8's chain

That is the broken very beefy 3/8's chain, we also had to make a custom bracket to cup the housing to keep it from denting, in short some 2.5 inch angle iron welded to flat stock, no pics

The video, other owner was driving the truck, his girlfriend was running the camera

Nother shot I haven't posted yet

Well heres an update the truck now sits as a frame and a cab with a 5.7 TBI v8 sitting next to it ready for a swap as well as a D44 front and 12 bolt rear to throw under it for some full width goodness, going to be fabbing up some nice axle trusses and such I will have teardown pics up sometime tomorrow night.

Alright here are the previously promised pics, worked on tearing the complete dash out of the donor truck for the wiring harness as we are planning to pull the toy harness for a sammy tub we have laying around that we may or may not throw the toyota running gear in, of course we will need a new front axle to do so, but still an idea.

PICS

Ummmmm or not I'll attach the main ideas but photobucket appears to be down for maintenance

Ok well that doesn't want to work either so I will try and get to it tomorrow morning.
