    Rear shocks look like they are going to bottom out over a speed bump.... Wicked rig though

    They have 3.5" of uptravel now, but I made the same comment that when it settle we need to swap in some shorter shocks.

    alot of metal, small engine, decent travel.
    caged, camburg long travel, 50t leafpack (soon to be installed) light rack over cab, 5pt harnesses etc
    but going with shorter shocks wont that limit the down travel now?

    and that front bumper is BADASS!

    Yes, but there is no way to mount these differently. It will still have plenty of travel with them relatively triangulated.

    That is our everyday production front bumper that we sell for Tacos and 3rd gen 4runners.

    Got some pics of how its currently sitting. We pulled the 3rd leaf down in the "HD" pack. As you can see, its front low right now, but we should have the new tire carrier/rear bumper done soon on it where it should level it out a lot better.

    It definitely looks way ass high in the rear because there is no bumper.

    Also took some center console pics. Along with his winch controls.

    Here are his gauges. Notice the one on the left

    Here are some sneak peaks. Glade just sent out the Exhaust manifolds and intake to laser to have the flanges built.

    Turbo manifold will be a T4 manifold. That is a Garret TP-38 from a 96' Powerstroke. Not sure if that turbo will work well or not, but we're using it for mockup for now. It would be better suited to the 1UZ in the buggy, but we'll try it on the 3.4L to see.

    Went in today to work on the buggy, but forgot the stuff I needed. Glade was in there working on his rear bumper/Tire carrier, so I said screw it and helped him knock out most of it. I had to leave at 3pm today, but he is still going after it. Its close.

    Best part is that with the tire on it the frame height in the rear dropped 1.5". Its at 26-1/4". Front after pulling the "HD" leaf is at 25.5". I bet it sits level when were done with it at 25" overall.

    IMHO, the ride height is about perfect now considering its on leaf springs. Especially considering this thing start just under 29" frame height.

    For the record. This is NOT a production carrier. They can only be built in-house on the vehicle itself. And, yes, its another "lambo" style tire carrier.

    it looks like an extremely tight fit between the hatch and the carrier. do you think on flex or if you smack the bumper down on a rock that the two will hit?

    It shouldn't deflect that much. Especially, with the way its welded on.
