Kit's Build Up

My front suspension is already built and done for now by Engage Off Road.






So this build up is going to be the start and finish of my rear suspension.
What I have now..



Picked up some 16'' smooth bodies to do the trick until I can afford some trip bypasses.


I will be running Engage's 50T leaf pack, Install kit (which includes front and rear hangers and all hardware), Shackles, and U-bolt Eliminator Kit.
I am interning at Engage, So I am very fortunate that Hassim is nice enough to allow me to build my truck at the shop, and help me along the way when needed.
Welded up the hangers...




everything fit together bitchin.

Tear down started yesterday morning, got mostly everything cut off and ground down, just a bit more grinding to do.. can't wait. I am boxing the frame as well, and ditching the bed alltogether.. bye bye bed

Im also gunna be using a tundra axle due to width and the availability of regearing and lockers. So cutting off all the stock bs on that and installing the Eliminator kit is gunna take some time



unfortunatly I wont be able to work on my truck everyday, due to school and my other job, So today I didnt get shit done, tomorrow I will hit it hard, hopefully have the suspension mocked up.

Got a TON done today.. haha

welded up some beefy shackles I got from Engage. all 4130
sorry im not the best welder..






Also picked up the Engage 50t pack, looks amazing.

Heres the 50t pack, front and rear hangers, and shackles



frame is 100% clean and is boxed up the the crossmember holding all the gas tank bs.. that was a lot of fun


trying to figure out my drive shaft took up way to much time today, should get it back friday from the drive shaft shop

Tundra axle is cleaned and ready for u bolt eliminator kit, just have to find the pinion angle and weld the kit up.

Anyone know the stock 05+tacoma Dcab short bed 2wd pinion angle by any chance? lol

took the leaf packs apart, using main leaf for mock up and to cycle the suspension.


hopefully I will have the suspension tacked in and cycling by friday night, sucks having to work on it every other day.

yeah, a 4x4 tundra drive shaft has a slip yoke in it and my tacomas drive shaft is solid, so when my 18'' of travel is fully drooped it wont plunge my ds into my tranny or destroy my carrier bearing.

Sick truck! Any certain reason for all the modding? Wanting to race it or anything?
