Five years later, only brakes, steering rods, seats, PS hose, driveshafts, MT Full Family cage, and electric cooling fan/shroud left to bolt in......so close I can imagine it rolling!








Paint it TLC flat black and it's a wrap, folks. :D

Better cool your heals until you see if the tie rod clears the top of the springs. Looks tight. :crybaby:

What's your plan there?

To address both concerns....Luke at 4X4 Labs made me a set of plates to box in the entire front, top/bottom and sides. Luke also made the tie / relay rod custom with 1 ton ends and I'm running histeer arms from TG, and they do clear. Went through a wee bit of hell during the shackle reversal on this but once we found zero it was a cinch. Only took three guys to figure it out.

I have not welded my hoops on, nor my shock tabs on the axle so that's a distinct possibility......OME make LONG ones?

Hi All:

I believe the N76, or the N75E are the longest Land Cruiser shock OME sells.

Why did you use lift springs on a SOA conversion? The droop travel will be affected by using these springs.

Regards,

Alan

Im contemplating something along these lines. Could you post some pics of the back of the springs?

Looks good... and TALL.
