      I had a productive day at the shop today. I was able to get my front sway bar all hooked up, I will still need to add a bracket to put it in double shear. I don't like the idea of just a bolt keeping it from bending. I needed to modify my...

      Well, while I am waiting for the ball joints to come in I messed around with the steering some more. The end of the TRE was probably going to make contact with the springs at full stuff and now is the time to fix things while everything is apart...

      Really Nice Build! Lots of things in similar with the one I'm working on in terms of suspension and what not. Couple questions, when you flexed it out for shocks what was your limit when lifting a tire for one of the others to come up off the...

      I never explained why I did that, the reason is due to my boxing out the front frame. In 2nd gen 4runners the frame goes from 2"x4" down to 2"x2.5" as it extends through the firewall. it also raises up by 2" Once I boxed it out I didn't have...

      Yeah, that is a good point, ill probably just modify my pitman arm. If I can get to around 4" or 5" that should be enough as I will be limiting my uptravel. The other thing to remember is that I am using slider boxes which react differently than...

      I was cycling the suspension while I was working on it to determine whether to put the TRE on the top or bottom of the pitman arm and the pictures make it look like its almost sitting on the leaf, it actually has about 3" of clearance. Not the...

      Cleaned up the FJ62 Box, fortunately it has the staggered bolt pattern, so if I ever need to upgrade in the future I can swap in a fj80 box with minimal issues. I also swapped the pitman arm to a fj80 one, definitely heavier duty than the fj62...

      From all of the research I have done on installing ARP studs the recommended amount to mill off of the rocker pedestals around where the stud will sit is .200"

      Was able to get the new pilot bearing installed, and the motor and trans back into the frame. Next on the list was to make a decision on installing the transfercase now or later. Fortunately I was able to trade some side work for a new-to-me...

      Last night I wanted to get something done before the new vband for the inlet showed up. I bought a he351 generic stainless outlet on Amazon, then a 45*/180* section of 3" 304 stainless and 3" stainless vband clamp set from mandrel-bends.com...

      I ended the day on a positive note and was able to source my new rear leaf springs, they were out of a C&C Silverado 3500 so they have a couple extra leaves I have to remove. They have a bit of corrosion on them as well so I went about...

      I went to install the new flywheel/clutch assembly and things were going fairly well until I went to install the trans. The pilot bearing was the wrong size for the input shaft of my ZF6 transmission, so I had to reach out to south bend to...

      Spent the next while welding the intake vband onto the primary turbo compressor housing. Welding cast aluminum sucks so bad. Also finish welded the hot pipe and threw some temp paint on it to prevent rust. I fought the compressor housing snap...

      Hot pipe, primary and manifold all came off also. Decided it was time to deal with the two broken manifold bolts. Bottom one came out after the 5th welded nut thankfully. Top one took 9 failed welded nuts, then drill through and carefully drive...

      Things have been slow on the project due to some side projects. I had to take a break to install this beautiful equipment for a client. a 500L whiskey/gin/rum still. Just needs to hooked up to electric and water.
