That'd be sweet!

The land cruiser guys are weird as fuck, to be honest, ...most hate swapping anything non toyota and mostly they're about bolt on parts so don't go to ih8mud expecting much, at least for 80s. The radius arms setup leaves a lot to be desired off road, but not if you're on ih8mud.

I used a mock up tube for my shaft just to make sure my links clear it. At full bump My lower driver side link is about 1/2" from the drive shaft. It's a tight fit when triangulating long lowers so keep that in mind when placing your lowers. Assuming your doing a crossmember for your lowers and not going off the frame.

Yeah I'm triangulating the lowers, getting them mocked up now. Crawl box should be here this week and I should be able to get it squared away. But yeah, looks like it'd be a tight fit.

Pretty sure this is where the lowers will sit at ride height. ~5 degrees

If you have the link clearance at full bump one thing you may want to consider is rotating your axle lower link mounts up to flatten out the lowers. It also generally keeps the links higher and out of the rocks just a tad more.

Just a trick I noticed on some of the 4wheelunderground link systems...so I copied it

I'm planning on welding some 1/4" to the bottom of the bracket to keep the joint off the rocks.

I know it's completely retarded to be asking now since I already did it , but is there any reason I shouldn't run the motor mounts like so?



It's unfinished, more plate will be added. I have it arching as much as it is to clear the upper link. Drivers side looks similar.

Some bracing would help that motor mount for sure.

He's talking about the shape, its not finished yet.

And about the links Jon, I was referring to keeping the links themselves higher by rotating the lower mounts, not necessarily the joints. The higher the links are the less you are gonna be sliding on them, and the less potential for bending them, etc.

Think of it as having your sliders an inch higher than they are now, you would use them less, only your sliders are crucial to your vehicles performance..

Don't work too fast, the slower you work the more time I have to build a bumper when I am done

It did awesome. I babied it and pussyfooted it though, I had no tools or spare parts if I broke something lol. A buddy of mine on Pirate helped me get it wheel able Thursday the 12th. We finished around 6pm then I drove it straight to the Rubicon for the Marlin Round-Up, hit the trail at 2am, popped a bead and took out a taillight on Cadillac hill going down and that's it! One of the best times of my life. Wheeled it for 3 days around Rubicon Springs and Hell Hole then back up Cadillac.

The rear drivers side coilover is hitting my frameside panhard mount so I need to cut it and cap it off so it doesn't bend the shock

Still need to hook up the ARB compressor and run the air lines and add a few gussets. Other than those things, it's golden.

Alright guys, I've taken the first step of weaning myself off the whole IFS

(Independant Fucking Sucks) I had to cut out both my front CV's on a trail recently & I've decided that I'm NOT going to throw those pussy parts back in... So , even if i gotta stay a prerunner for awhile, i dont care, I just want to go up to a true 4" lift like I've had on most my trucks & the added bonus of a slightly wider front axle , & I'll dick out dimensions & issues later , but my question to you guys is probably obvious but humor me anyway... To those who have SAS'd , isn't it easier to do that than to go from SAS to IFS ??

(why someone would escapes me)
