I want a 1st gen DC SAS one day. Nice rig man!

You flash many codes or have lights galore flashing on your dash? Always wondered how annoying it is getting everything stockish after a major chop.

What height TG springs did you end up putting in the rear?

Too bad he sold it, it was a nice truck. Any reason why he sold it?

Also I believe he has Alcan springs with an AAL from reading through the beginning posts.

Not sure why he decided to sell it, but I am happy he did. I have been in the market for a doule cab sas'd. I built a jeep and lost all that money invested. Wasn't going to do it again. Although, I have already noticed that these toyotas hold their value MUCH better than a Jeep.

He just texted me and let me know that they are trail gear 5" springs in the rear. He had changed them at some point.

Don't think it has ever been on a trailer. I drive it daily in the central valley of California. I am chasing done ever increasing vibrations in the front end though. Possible wheel bearings. There is definitely some slop in one of the tie rod ends. Will start there and see if it tightens up the feel. Does anyone know if I would just purchase rod ends for an 85 pickup?

If its the TG kit it uses FJ80 tie rod ends but hopefully seeing as how this thread hasn't been updated in a little while you've already gotten it situated and figured out

No. I ordered some parts, bushings, rod ends, knuckle kit.

So far I have just replaced the worst two bushings. Major improvement. I need to finish all off them though.

Keep your old TREs as trail spares. Never know when a failure can happen. Mine seems to shit out a pair every two years.

Nice score on the truck.

Ah yea! Im planning to do something similar for mine except straight across or either bent down slightly. all I carry up there as small action packers and id just like a shelf to put the smaller ones on and a larger one up top. How did you get the tube between the softopper.. obviously its just tacked together and I haven't really looked at my soft top too much but do the frame tubes slip apart down at the point of pivot to go between the bedrack tubes?

You have to remove one screw and then the softopper frame tubes will slip apart.

It is fully welded now. I bent mine up to clear ice chest to slide underneath.
