    Front kit is custom built by Johnny Branch bought it used off a buddy. And yeah she's wide. Track width is 87" outside to outside. Gonna be interesting trying to get used to it haha. Still gotta throw the spacers on in the rear too

    Would a t100 axle be easier to find than a tundra axle? When you planning on doing the rear?

    Not sure if it would be easier to find but I want the tundra axle cuz its wider and I am not sure if I could run leafs outside the frame with the t100 axle. Doing the rear and caging the cab as soon as my funds permit. Within 6 months to a year she should be "done"

    Added a couple more gussets to the coilbucket and shock mounts. Still gotta do a little more plating and run the tubes to the frame and over the engine. Also gonna try something pretty clean with the front bumper. Will post more pics as it progresses more and more.

    Thanks guys. Yeah planning on a bumper to bumper cage in the next few months. Just picked up an 89 nissan 300zx so I won't have to drive this to work and school all the time. For the rear I am actually going to do a corr style link with coilovers mounted off the axle. Not really sure why I don't see more of them seems like the best route to go performance and price wise.

    Haha its gonna be rad to see how it turns out. Seems like my best chance to keep up with the front end. Have you read up on them at all? I have been talking to some friends about it and really haven't seard anything negative. Just thinkin there must be some reasons why more people don't run them.

    got the resi's mounted up with some pretty cool mounts. holds them perfect in place. started on the bumper still got a couple more tubes to throw in and mount the skid but its coming out pretty clean more props to my buddies. cant wait til its done so i can paint it. its been raining so it rusts up pretty quick drivin to work and such. still lookin for corner lights want to buy the oem ones cuz my ebay ones were shitty and broke on me. little by little its getting done. should be taking it in the dirt pretty soon once everything is gusseted but most of all the shock mounts still need to be beefed up. hard to find time to get it done between work and school but its coming along.

    Picked up some corner lights. Shaved the glass a little bit to get it to fit a little better. Still needs a little work but I am happy with the way it looks.

    Nice build! Love to see 1st gen dbl cabs long traveled. Can't wait to see rear come alive. I'll be crossing that bridge not to far off.

    Hey did u remove or relocate the windshield washer pump and tank when doing ur bumper? Bump looks good, similar to what we are almost done doing on mine. Just a lil extra work cuz front diff kinda hangs down in way.


    Sick build man :popcorn:
