    Hey guys so after a year with fat bobs lift. I'm thinking about fiberglass fenders, tc mid travel, and a cummins 4bt diesel.

    I have two questions, how do I lift the rear more to match the front?

    And what is my current 2011 engine and 5spd trans worth with 20000 miles on them?

    Curious as to why you want the diesel? The money you're going to spend on a new motor could be put into your current engine and still have plenty of money for suspension and bodywork upgrades.

    Don't get me wrong, I want to see this get done, just wondering what the reasoning is?

    When you add a 970 lb. engine up there, your long travel wont be as long. You also may want to get any loose fillings fixed at the dentist prior to firing that bad boy up...

    I'd love to see an ISB 2.8 in there. Now, those are cool engines.

    No, they use a completely different setup and the A750 transmission controller needs CAN +/- signals from the 1GR ECU (combined unit) in order to control shift points. You would need to use a GM transmission. Basically, everything that makes the Toyota good you'd be removing from the vehicle and replacing it with a chinese built engine and GM transmission.

    The reason I want the diesel is because I want more torque and I don't want to wait for it. I also think I can get north of 35mpg highway.

    The trans will be a stage 3 T56 that I already have ready to go, which will bolt up with the chevy adapter. I think the clutch situation can be worked out by machining the LS clutch for the cummins crank.


    I messed up on the Title, I am looking for MID TRAVEL!!

    I figure I can get the proper coils for the weight of the new engine. That is the reason that got me thinking Mid Travel in the first place was to get the right springs for the added weight and take out the spacers from the fat bobs.
