Awesome build. Can you pls share part numbers on fittings?Here is my solution for plumbing the pressure side of the Toyota 3b power steering pump to the later FJ80 power steering box. I could not locate a factory hose for this application so I bought aeroquip hose and the appropriate fittings from Earls and fabricated my own pressure side hose. For some reason it took me a while to come to this obvious solution so I’m posting it here as one example of how to deal with the problem..

What is the distance from the bottom of the cab to the floor at the door, and how are you going to get in and out.
TNX for the reply, mine is 35 with no running trans or motor. I have guesstimated to add about 1200# in that process with all of the things to Complete it. Ran I t across the scales yesterday and so far it comes in at 2440# so it should be under 4K in weight. The question with that number of added weight aprox 1200# what is your opinion on the spring crunch may see. 60 rear in front and a Chev 63” in the rear springs. I also have a handle to assist in getting in.
Ya it is spring over, calculating changing to spring under it may get it to low. So the things I will do is 4” with weight possible of reaching the springs a bit maybe get a inch or two if I am lucky, shorter shackles get me a little. Let’s say a total of 6” overall. That will got me to 29” from ground to cab, and I was hoping for 24 maybe I can live with that, and TNX’s for your input.I honestly have no real idea about how much the truck might drop with the extra 1200 pounds. I put my engine into the truck fairly early to get the weight on the frame. Hard to really say but it sounds like you must have a spring over as well so you have a lot of lift any way you cut it. Best of luck with your bulid.
