When wheeling at CTJ'09 I managed to break my mirror. Just the black plastic "triangle" part that mounts to the truck, so I decided to rebuil the missing portions with fiberglass:









Can't even tell!

Next I decided to regear to 4.56's. I wasn't about to pay what shops want to do this so I decided to do it myself. Disclaimer: This is in no way a job for the average Joe to tackle. I have a vast knowledge of mechanics including a ME bachelors degree so I know how to properly set-up gears.

Apparently I didnt take a whole lot of pictures during this, lol but here are the two I took of the rear set-up I ended with:

Pattern:



Backlash:



Now if anyone is thinking about doing this themselves here are a few tips:

1. Try the rear first, if you can't do the rear, you will not have a chance at getting the front right.

2. Don't bother withcrush sleeves, go solid pinion spacers all the way.

3. Refer to this website, chances are you will find a write-up on the exact install you are doing...I did. http://www.gearinstalls.com/ Thanks Zuk!

4. After swapping the gears, start with the shims as they were installed for a starting point. Adjust from there.


The front is a different story, refer to the FSM for procedure, and you absolutely must have a dial indicator with a right hand attachment to measure the backlash.

Current (to this point in the build) picture:

Got a bedcage for a 2001 Tundra given to me so I figured I would make it work...with a few minor modifications I was able to mount it in the bed using the stock bedbolts.





Combined it with some Bilstein 7100's and this was the result:

Well by this time I was getting tired of my All-Pro front bumper and the tube look was growing on me so I decided to build 'me one of my own!

No bumper:





Sold my AP and my skids to no mods.

Thanks glad it found a good home

Finally (and slowly) working on this build thread, but I would rather be wheeling. Maybe I will take a break from the build progress and post some current pics after the trip this weekend!

Stay tuned!
