    ok so its not a tacoma but the front end is the same :D
    well since my runner on tons is taking longer to get finished than i tought i figured i better get wifes runner a little better equiped for a snow run this winter. built a little light bar and put 3 procomp 130's with hellas 100wt yellow bulbs in them
    [​IMG]
    then figured i better whip a set of sliders just in case(i dont drive so well)
    i wanted to do something different for a rough surface so i tried something different. built normal sliders, 1.75" dom, with 4 attaching legs (little over kill for such a short wheelbase) but then i cut another peice of tubing longwise and drilled 1" holes in it, then welded it to the top of the slider
    kinda hard to see in pics
    [​IMG]
    it came out okay but nexttime ill do it a lil different yet.
    so then next was the driveway test

    I just saw his 4 runner this morning as Rick is doing my cab mount chop for me. That 4 runner is awesome, looks even better in person.

    thanks for all the comments. yes i "whipped up" the sliders:D i do a little fab work every now and then. the tube ends are a billet steel end that slips into the end of the tube to make a "swoopy" finish


    heres my big project
    [​IMG]
    '90 4Runner on 1TONS , linked front and rear, and 40" creepys
    and yes the "WIFES" runner gets wheeled all over NM, CO, UT, and AZ
