whores? Finally getting around to building my Hammers Taxi so I figured I'd post something worthwhile than just a bunch of bolt on mods. Truck started out as a prerunner that I soon converted to OEM 4wd IFS with manual hubs and J-shift t-case. One thing led to another and a pair of 1 tons fell in my lap. Since my last truck, I felt 1 tons would be the end all/be all of axle mods to the truck so here we go!

2001 Double cab Taco Prerunner converted to 4wd
87 F350 D60 front axle, 5.38's, ARB, Chevy outers, 35 spline throughout, Yukon hardcore hubs
14 bolt rear, 5.38's, ARB, disc brakes
14" Fox coilovers up front with a 3 link and 4 Wheel Underground lower link mounts
Chevy rear springs for now but already have some parts to link the rear.
39" BFG KR's on 17" steels
Full PSC hydro assist

I started last weekend (4-5-14), a week before planned. My buddies tempted me into starting early so I got the rear on tires since it was easy enough (Chevy springs). Had to cap off the rear brake lines to flip the truck around so I could start work on the front end. Basically left it last Sunday with the truck on jack stands with the IFS ready to come out.

Catching up to this weekend, I started yesterday (4-12-14) by cutting the frame off with the IFS attached Then I swapped oil pans and motor mounts and started mocking up the new frame. I got both built last night and were ready for fully welding this morning. Woke up early and got started on that. Once I was satisfied with the welds, I tacked the frame sections in place and rolled the D60 under her to get an idea of where it would sit nicely. Chopped out a few odds and ends with the plasma and called it a day. I'm taking vacation from the 21-25 of this month to get a bunch of work done. I've been working 10-12 hour days on this thing by myself, for the most part, so I should be able to knock out a bunch of work.

Hit me with a follow on Instagram (@_bdreynolds_) if you want to see pictures AS I build otherwise I'll update this thread at the end of each work day or when I get to my computer (working on the truck 35 miles from home).

Few other pics I have. My stock rear driveshaft bolted up to the 14 bolt without a hitch. Might be too long, might be too short, I'll know once it's sitting on all 4 tires and I have an opportunity to lift it to full droop.

Bought a new welder for the project, so far so good
