Pretty cool rig. Was he building it to desert run or is he going to try rock crawling with it? Even though it has a lot of wheel travel, I would still be worried about breaking a CV axle on the rocks. Does he have a front locker?
I thought about some kind of Total Chaos lift for my Tacoma, but decided against it. I am not into desert running, so it would be a lot of $$$ for just some IFS lift.
Well lets not put the cart before the horse.
He needs to get stuff sorted out and there are issues he is tackling to make it truly "offroad ready".
He has done so much, it's really cool. I just want to wheel w/ my buddy! Hopefully it will be sorted out very soon.
Very sick truck...its really something to see someone put that much time and effort and have it pay off...congrats to him...I definetly would've gone a different way witht the front bumper, but it looks way functional....nice job
Very nice! I would have gone a different direction with the front bumper, but who cares what I think! It's his truck and he has done an awesome job.
I checked his Yotatech page and it states that his rear suspension lift consists of 40 mm OME coils? That rear end is at least 2 x's higher than 40 mm (25.4 mm per inch). Anyone know what else he did to the rear end? Any panhard or rear driveshaft problems?
He is still trying to work out the suspension. I believe he is trying to find custom coil options, not sure. It might be OME Heavies w/ spacers...I forget.
The 4th gen won't give you panhard issues until you do quite a bit of lift, I think his driveshaft is stock (well, resleeved/replaced from some trail candystriping)
I will ask him to update this thread -
