Depends on how good it looks once I put it on its own weight. If it's too far off, I'll have to cut off the brackets and relocate them. Also, add mounting shocks to that list.

Finish/hang front axle
Front and rear brakes
Finish welding out brackets
Install IFS steering box
Install transfer case brake
I need to hook my t-case brake back up.

Will start or complete your Toyota builds. All work is cash up front, trades are accepted on rare occasions.

Solid Axle Swaps
Sliders and Installations
Engine Installations

Parts are available for 84-89 1st Gen 4Runners.

Also have a 98 Runner for parts, sorry but the 3.4 and e-locker is already designated for Taco76087 and my new Truggy.

Group builds are rare, but if you would like to help Blake out, come on over.

I don't really like popcorn. So I'll sit here patiently waiting, eating my bucket O ice cream.
