Istalled lift - June 2011

Got some Bilstien 5100s from another member(ended up re-selling the rears)


Then got some used Eibach Coils from BirdTRD (ironically shipped in an OME box! lol)


Got the strut assembled at Desert Rat for $20 each.

After hours (total n00b) of research on TW I installed the them on my truck.



Also learned a lesson on "wet torque" vs. "dry torque" I tried torquing my LBJ bolts to spec while covered in PB Blaster.... Didn't work out to well. haha (Stripped the lug nut from sheer Noobness. )


Bro leanin bad....


After sporting the bro lean for about a week, I got in my Expedition Leaf Packs, 10" Bilstien 5150s and Extended SS Brake Line from All-Pro.

(Note: I have since completely redone the rear suspension. Click here to see my current set-up.)


Installed the next afternoon after work. (Check out those jackstands!!!! )




Got some custom u-bolts from a local suspension shop that specializes in semi-trucks for $30 total. Worked perfectly.


Made a BPV Bracket out of some scrap


Badda bing


Badda boom


The springs settled a good inch or two after a bit of driving.

While I didn't really like how small the 31s looked, I fell in love with the lift and the look it gave my taco!

While the expos do give a fairly rough ride unloaded, they help out a ton with loads and the ride gets much smoother! That's their purpose anyway.




In the past few months I've added some much needed 4.5" bumpstops:

and 6" shackles (Outlaw 1.5" lift)

PreRunner Stuff I've Sold:
Spindles: $80
Transmission (150k miles) for Scrap Metal: $25

Total: $105.00

Total cost of my 4x4 conversion = $883.42 (Does not include the new 5.29 Nitro Gears, and the ARB locker that went in the front third.)


Obtained a transmission and j-shift transfercase on January 23, 2012



Dropped the pan to check everything and nothin but nice, red, tranny fuild drained out! Also replced the main seal while it was accessable.



February 4, 2012 -- After getting a tranny mount, the correct length driveshaft, and all the needed fluids, it was time to do the swap!

After a coupled of hours disconnecting/unbolting everything, I finally dropped the 2wd tranny down. Broke the plastic bracket for the kick down cable in the process... Those things are extremly fragile!!!




Started getting ready to install the new tranny the next morning



Took a couple tries getting the torque convertor in all the way (got kinda frustrated trying to keep it in all the way while jacking the tranny up! It just kept slipping out.)


Crossmember back on. Torqued to spec and Blue Lock-tite on every bolt!



Ended up just using duct tape to keep the kick-down cable bracket in place!!! lol Hasn't popped out since then, but it is temporary.

It was much easier to install the tranny with the trasfer case off, so that was the next step. Cut out the shifter plate and it went on no problem.





Started putting on the drive shaft and decided I wanted to test out the tranny real quick! So I put in some fluid and started her up. So far so good.... Shifted into reverse and I hear CLUNCK CLUNK CLUNK!!!! Quickly shifted back to park and tried again clunking was even worse! I was in despair!!! Hours and hourse of work and I screwed it up! Didn't realize until about 5 min later that it was the partially bolted on drive shaft that was clunking around!!!!!! Felt like an idiot lol. Tried it again and it was perfect! Took it for a spin and the shifting and everything was perfectly normal. One of the most satisfying feelings I ever had! Even used "2lo" on a recent off-road trip, and it works great.


Before:




After:




Since then I've aquired the interior pieces. Looks much better, and it's A LOT quiter with that rubber boot! lol



Update: May 14, 2012

Finally finished outfitting the front diff with 5.29s and an ARB locker, so it was time to swap in the rest of the 4x4 parts.

Pulled off the tires, put the calipers to the side, took off the spindles and prepared to put eveything in when it started to HAIL. lol Normally it wouldn't be a big deal but I was on a veeery tight timeline to get ready for Moab... lol)




Thankfully it only lasted for about 2 hours and I wasn't to far behind schedule...

Popped in the freshly re-geared clamshell (i put electrical tape over the ARB brass fitting just to kep things clean...)


NAPA CV axles went in w/o a hitch...


Had an interesting time with the spindles, since they came off of a 96 taco that had been sitting for a while... the dust covers are bent all to high heaven, but who cares about that... The little lockout studs were also a bit tweaked so I had to use a brass hammer to coax the manual hub body on. Also, the NAPA CV had a hard time fitting into the O'Reilly inner spindle seal so I had to get creative getting the passenger axles all the way through the hub. Other than that, everything went in smoothly.



Popped the tires back on, hooked up the front driveshaft, filled up the front diff and went down to a dirt lot to test things out. I discovered that 4LO IS AMAZING!!!! lol everything worked great!

My PreRunner is now 4x4.

AISIN Manual Hub rebuild...


Started with this. The one on the left had almost ZERO grease and the one on the right was PACKED with way too much grease! Very satisfying to re-build them!


Coated all inside moving parts with some high temp sythetic grease. On the ouside face and dial, I used Loctite Naval Jelly Rust Remover, scrubbed, then scrubbed with dishsoap, rinsed, wiped down with gasoline, used about 5 coats of paint, sanded down the lettering for some contrast, then about 10 coats of clear coat to finish them off.



And bam, final result. I'm using the orange ones on my truck and the OEM looking ones as spares.

Fitting 35s on a 3" lift. (Note: I have since redone this job to fit 37s and clean-up my first firewall tub. Click here to see the current set-up.)

My interest in fitting 35s sorta started by accident when my buddy, (Ghost...) got some tires from his neighbor down the street and offered them to me since I was still on 31s and looking for bigger tires. Turns out the tires were 315/70r17s and I had no idea if they would fit. So I started a thread about it... did some searching of my own, and my world was opened to the idea that you don't HAVE to put on a 33" tire or smaller on your 3" lifted Tacoma!! lol

I ended up findin 6 of the same exact tires in the "dead tires" pile at work which my boss let me have for free. So I was able to give Ghost his tires back, bought some cheap 17x9" 3.5" BS ProComp steel rims to fit the tires (which had to be special made and took 5 months to get here! but that's another story...), and finally got to work...


Had to modify the soft 8 steels a bit in order to clear the caliper. A very fine flap disc on the grinder worked well.


Decided to cut 2" out of my fenders in preperation for bigger tires in the future... 1" would've been plenty to fit the 35s though.

I wanted to get as clean of a look that I could, so I decided against just taking a sawzall to them. I also didn't want the sharp edges that would have been the result of using a sawzall. So I decided to make perpendicular cuts to the edge the fender, 2" long and an inch or so wide, to make little tabs that I could bend under. This let me keep the same original line that the fenders had from the factory and it gave a nice round edge to the edge of the fender.

I used painters tape for 2 reasons: 1) To keep the paint from chipping and flaking while cutting and bending. 2) It made for a nice surface to mark my cuts...







Overall I'm very happy with this method and how it turned out. The only bummer is that the paint did flake a bit at all my bends... so i may apply a strip of Bedliner or something similar on the edges to cover that up... but we'll see. It hasn't bothered me yet, because you can only notice it up close, or if someone points it out, so I'll probably just leave it like it is for now.

Tubbing the firewall.

First order of business was getting an alignment and pushing the caster as far forward as possible.
Before:


After:


Put the front end on jackstands, and removed the driverside strut. Removing the strut allowed me to control all available travel with a floor jack, so I could see exactly where I needed to cut. I also removed the fenders so I had more room to operate the grinder and welder.

On the bumpstops--full stuff.

Ended up cutting a bit more than what this line indicates...

Just hit this in h the 2lb sledge, and that yielded plenty of room.

On the inside, I removed the plastic trim that was in the way, pulled the carpet back from where I was going to be cutting/welding, and tied up all the wires out of harms way. Than cut away with the grinder and sometimes the sawzall and beat in some areas with the hammer


Still needed to be cleaned up a bit...

I'm worried about the cab mount if i ever go to a bigger tire... but it should be ok for now.


Once all the grinding was done, I made some cardboard templates to cover the openings and then used those to trace the shape i needed on to a 16g steel sheet. The 16g was very easy to bend into place. Tacked it (as best i could) into place with my Harbour Freight 110volt 80amp STICK welder...... lol Only had a couple of flames poof up inside the cab. hahahahahaha

Did't get many pictures after this, because I was supposedly leaving for Moab the next morning at 4am!!! so I wasn't thinking about taking pictures at that time. However, you can see how much room the tub gave me in this picture:

Unfotunately, I didn't get exact measurements.... But right now, It's right at a full 3" in the front and about 5" in the rear unloaded. I can get some measurements later today..

And the larger shackles give more lift. Unfortunately, they'll also kill your shackle angle if you don't re-mount the rear spring hanger a few inches forward. You want the shackles to be at a 40-45 degrees angle, and as you can see from the pics, mine are way to steep. IF You get longer shackles and make sure they're at a 40-45 degree angle, another benifit will be a lot more droop in your articulation. More flex.... However you don't want to go too long because the longer the shackle, the less stability you'll have on roads, since the rear as more play to sway sideways. (Not a very nice thought....)
