    Im a new owner of a 85 toyota pickup single cab (I will get pictures tomorrow) As of now I only have around $350 in it. So im thinking of doing 64" chevy springs in the rear, and the RUF. Im going to run my stock wheels off my 99 tacoma with wheel spacers being that the only way they will fit. First thing i do have to do is replace the head gasket, I already have the stuff for it. I will probably only run 33s on it for now till I can regear or I just may leave 33s on and put lockers. Im going to build sliders and bumpers myself. If anyone has better ideas for springs let me know im all for suggestions. Thanks alot.

    Well here it is not very good looking yet. I'm going to put the head gasket on this weekend and build some sliders maybe a rear bumper while I'm at it.

    :popcorn: If you are building a budget wheeler you can't go wrong with RUF and Chevy's.

    i was thinking that but i really don't want to move the spring hangers. Im thinking about building my own leaf packs like 4WD, and a shackle. I found some bfg km2s for sale on craigslist for sale with about 40% tread for $150. Im going to try and do the ifs hubs so i can fit my 1st gen tacoma wheels on it and it will widen the axle around 3in.
