    No, front end is remaining ifs. I'm using parts from the solid axle years on my spindles. Screw a solid axle in a desert toy.

    And thanks for the link. Jose fucks are high if they think I'm paying them 500 for just the left side caliper. Haha. Looks like I'm heading to ecology.

    I have one near by and they had nothing. I've got a few friends with collections of toyota shit so I'm hoping one of them will have something. Ill know this weekend.

    thanks man... its finally starting to look like a truck again. this heat made me not want to work on it and personal shit really started getting in the way. it almost came to selling it as she sits and maybe starting another some years down the road. as of now im planning on finishing her and keeping it for a bit but never know. may start a full tube chassis and never look back.

    Haha good call Tyler. I've looked this damn truck up and down so much it has become the bane of me. Haha. I'll get it done eventually. Hoping to drive it this season as I need the shop space for a few other projects I've already accepted for some other company's. WOOT!!!

    Well shit! Looks like a bit of progress was made. Engine bay is now tied to cab. Cab a permanently tied in now. Ditched the air boxes and all the other bs. Will build in a custom heater core for heat on those chilly nights.

    Triangulating to that hoop from the rear of the core support. Then engine brace will come over the motor at rear as well as front and be injected by bushings to the core support, as well as both sides fore and aft of the engine. Trust in the design my friend.

    Are you still able to get the upper control arm bolt out? It looks a little tight but I can't tell from the angle of the picture. I've seen a couple of engine cages and they can't get that bolt out anymore lol

    * just noticed you have one bolt for each heim not the single factory bolt. Still looks like it might be tight?

    Sounds good, make sure you plan on having a vertical tube going from you frame(near your upper control arm mounts) to that top tube near you shock mounts, alex just bent his whole engine cage upwards because he didn't have one :eek:
