Oh, I almost got a 4.88 third from a local junkyard, but he said $250 for it!!!

Been up looking at ideas for a rear bumper/tire carrier, a tube tailgate with a tire mount on it, or, making another headache rack/exo with the spare tire above my roof. Any ideas for my spare tire? I wanna have a fullsize 33, or maybe a 35 later on.

Whoop might be able to get chebby leafs and homemade hangers from my dads buddy who ended up having his 3rd 4runner stolen... Its sad people are like this! Im @nal about using my kill switch and my steering club since I know people who have lost their yotas.
Anyways I murdered out my tailights (Lol got bored) and painted my bed and tailgate so far, and I will finish painting my truck if it ever gets sunny here again.

Got two doors at Picknpull today. They are non vent window doors! They are straight and I got them for $80. I will turn my vent window doors into nice halfdoors now.

Im baaaack! Ive been wheeling the piss outta my truck. Ive welded my rear end, put my rear shocks through my bed, made a rear bumper, got a new alternator and radiator, in the process of doing a round headlight swap, got newer 33x12.5x15 super swamper radials, and I have everything for Histeer besides tie rods right now. Ive been to Elbe a couple times the last month. First run I went on, I did log jam with open diffs! I did all the trails besides swamp trail and the Busy. When I got home that night, I had the urge to weld my rear end. Then the next weekend, went back to Elbe to try it out. Did all the trails with ease, then decided to do the Busy Wild at around 2pm. Man that trail is crazy. I got aloooot of body damage, but it was worth it. I had to be drug (literally) through like 4 spots, but other than that I made it. Heres some pictures
10 inch Bilsteins I found at the swapmeet and got for $10! I mounted them through the bed and put them up high so I have room for longer shocks soon. The piece of rectangle tube I used cost $10, so $30 for a badass rear shock setup.

Im sure Im missing alot of pictures, Ill get more throught the week. CANNOT wait for ruf and chebbie leafs in the rear. Then, its time to build my front axle. Locker, longfields, hub gears, armor, etc. So that way, I can decide if I want 35s or 37s. And gears.

That's a great build thread man. I noticed most of the pictures are missing. But still a fun read.
