5-leaf Chevy's in back,, with our tried and proven double-swingshackles
44044s up front
some tube work front/side/rear
Tacobox (dual t-case)

here are a few pictures of my slow progress,
got the HP D44 installed under the Rancho 44044s just need to u-bolt the axle down as soon as I get the rest of the u-bolts from Parts Mike,
I had W.F.O install the ARB and new 4.88 gears along with the High Angle Driveline front Toyota flange,! 8)
I have mocked up a front Bilstein 7000 series shock with the remotes, I'm not sure if I'll run these, as I also have a new set of Rancho 9012s avaliable, we will see,, :)
, I will be having Dean (Cryogenitics) shorten and respline the 2 GM full width alloy front axles and than I can install them along with the new rotors,calipers and hubs,,

Looking good. Everything is so clean. Are you sure your not building another bling rig like the white one. Dare I say Mall Crawler II

Are you going to install the Staun's yourself? If so I would be interested in seeing how that works.

I'm o.k. with the Mall Crawler II, thing,,
I'll have to get a picture of it hard at work at the Galaria,!! :lol:

I hope to install the Stauns with some help from Tony and Case,, these new Gen's are supposed to be a ton easier to install according to Case, :wink:

Don't look under it...
There's still grease and oil on a lot of stuff.
I wish I knew where a steam cleaner was.
Not sure if that's the right word for it. In high school shop we had a steam thing that would take grease off anything in a heartbeat. Paint too probably...
:shock:

Ah,, yea,, we used to have a steam cleaner at work,, your right it would take any oil and grease off in an instant,, and if not carefull it would take off paint too,!! :shock:

If your not too worried about the driveway, you could always go to the Dollar Tree, or 98-Cent store,, or whatever they call it now a days,!! :lol:

and buy a few cans of oven cleaner,, and when your Runner is not running and everything is cool, just spray the cleaner on everything needed to be degreased,(IE: engine,tranny,t-case,frame,diff's),, probably not too good for spray painted stuff :o
wait about 1/2 hour and than spray off with a garden hose ,, works pretty good,!! :wink:

Well tonight was a milestone in the new 4Runners life,, 8)
I got the front tires on, bled the brakes (sort of) and gave Karen the go ahead to drive it 1st,!! :D
so it had it's maiden voyage ,a whole 500 feet from the top driveway to the bottom driveway,
we will need to figure out the brakes ,they are still thinking there are stock axles under it,, and since the sensors go nowhere now,, it seems to want to either stop too quickly,, or there is no pedal,!!
the front axle needs a serious toe in.
still no shocks.......
BUT IT MOVES UNDER IT'S OWN POWER,!! 8) 8)
it's a little rear high,, but I think it will settle down when the rear bumper,full sized spare, and highlift are installed
I'm actually hoping that with the front winch and bumpers,, the whole Runner will settle in at about 2.5 inches lower than it sits now,

we will see..

here are a few pictures of it in action, :lol:
and a side by side comparision with Karens stock 96 Limited
