Blake's 1984 4Runner Build

Okay after realizing I was in over my head with my 1986 4Runner I decided to purchase one that already ran and had a SFA. So low and behold, I am now the proud new owner of a 1984 4Runner 4x4. It's got a few things already done to it that make it a good platform to build off of but I've still got a lot in store for this thing.

Link to Photobucket album. Pictures will be uploaded to PB a few days before they make it to this thread.
http://s1195.photobucket.com/albums/...984%204Runner/

Specs:
-1984 4Runner 4x4
-294,492 miles on body
-30,000 on rebuilt 22R
-5-speed G52 transmission
-34x10.5x15 Super Swamper TSLs
-Detroit lockers front and rear
-4.7s in transfer case
-5" SkyJacker springs front and rear
-ProComp shocks
-Extended spline driveshafts front and rear
-GotPropane conversion

Realistic Future Mods:
-4xInnovation DOM sliders with kickout - Ordered
-Marlin Crawler high steer - Ordered
-Front axle truss and diff armor - Ordered
-Trail-Gear 3" rear springs - Ordered
-Trail-Gear 3" front springs - Ordered
-Extended Bilstein 5125 shocks - Ordered
-Addicted Offroad front bumper - Ordered
-4xInnovation tube doors
-4xInnovation passenger length rollcage
-Longfield Superaxle front shafts
-36" tires
-PSC hydraulic assist steering



I'm sure there's some stuff I'm leaving out on both lists but I'll update as I think of stuff. The future mods list is somewhat in order but things may change. Sliders will be ordered Friday and possibly the high steer kit also. I'm parting out my '86 and keeping the IFS steering box for the high steer and also the EFI stuff for the conversion.

I'll update this tomorrow evening when I'm not so tired (been up 30 hours so far!) Here's a couple of pictures to hold you over until then:

In the driveway, the day I bought it.


Interior is in decent shape other than the ghetto steering wheel

Got the passenger side hub removed, cleaned, repacked, and reinstalled tonight after work. I now have 4wd

Will be ordering sliders tomorrow night and possibly the high steer kit. I flexed it out in a "creek" in our front yard and it severely disappointed me. Not sure if the shocks are binding or if the springs are that fu'd up. I'll probably add some shock hoops up front with some extended Bilsteins and Trail-Gear 3" non-HD springs and do some extended Bilsteins out back in the / \ formation with some Chevy 63s or F150 springs. It's pretty tall so I want to bring it down a few inches and still fit 37s

I had a thread about it, but it wasn't a build. I tore the truck apart then decided I was too lazy to put it back together so I bought this one. The 86 is a parts truck now.

PM me and I'll see what I can do. It really doesn't have any interior parts other than front seats. I'm keeping the EFI to swap to the 84. Another member has dibs on the engine block and some parts.

Some parts I won't be selling because I want to keep them as spares.

Not at the moment. It's the same axle as the one that's in it only wider. If I end up going with a full width front (Dana 44) then I'd swap it. But if I run anything other than Toyota axles I'll be going to tons. But I'll have to seriously tear up the axles to drop the Yotas!

Yeah that's why I said if I dump the Yota axles I'd go to tons. But then I'd want a 3.4 swap! Only reason I'd consider a D44 is just for the full width of it. Plus I know a guy at work that will make me a hell of a deal on one. But I have other stuff to worry about at the moment. Axles are far down on the "fix it before it breaks" list.
