    Old bent frame.

    I decided to plate the inside and outside of the frame with 3/16 steel to prevent the above from happening again.

    More pictures of the lower link frame mounts? I think I'll be buying them for my truck. Are the clearances good with the transfer case and exhaust?

    Mounted the cab onto the frame. Engine is installed. Just have to connect the wirings and hoses now. With 33s the frame height is currently 23.5".

    There is not a lot of room but you should be able to fit a custom exhaust in there.

    Looks sick dude, frame is beastly!

    Did you bend the old frame in the front from the additional stress of the SAS? How did you bend it just out of curiosity? Thanks man,

    Great work!

    The truck is looking good! Always liked single cabs with big tires. Might I ask why you used the Toyota e lockers instead of using a Detroit or ARB?

    Bent the frame driving over a tree stump. On the drop the driver frame rail took a pretty good hit from the stump and bent.

    The Toyota e lockers were from my previous build which I got for a pretty good price. I would never use Detroit. ARB would have been an option if I hadn't gotten the e lockers for cheap.

    The shock tower was in the way of the steering link, so this was what I did.

    I tried to contact him on ttora, unfortunately was unable to so......in a round about way, I ended up getting the same ones.

    The pitting is where the previous owner tried to repair them at one point. Check out the penetration of his welds! lol

    hey man,

    I am currently collecting parts, getting ready to do a sas swap on my 03 yota. I have the front axle out of a jeep wagoneer, and am now looking for gears. What ratio do you recomend? and do you have recommendations on where to get them?

    Also I was planning on just sticking with my stock rear axle. good idea or bad idea?
