well a little more progress ..........

the front suspension if done ,shock are mounted, steel braided brake lines installed , and everything looks like it should work,!! :)

now back to the rear,
since I have a Tacoma (truck) NON-ABS'ed 8.4" rear axle, the parking brake ears on the backing plate were running right into the Chevy springs, and no way to get the cables to attach correctly
, I could have fabb'ed up some extensions, and some spacers to get the cables to work,, but I guess that would have been too easy,!! :roll:

So I located another Toyota 4Runner (2000 e-lockered rear axle),
sold the e-locker to Tony,, and kept the rest,
I made a few calls to some Toyota tech's to try and see if the 2000 Toyota 4Runner ABS'ed rear axles would work in the Tacoma housing, (the 4Runner ABS'ed axles have the parking brake ears alot lower on the backing plate, but also have a deeper cavity at the end of the housing, where the reluctor ring rides

with no real answer from anyone,, I pulled out the Tacoma axles and did some comparing,

I found out the the ABS reluctor rings (the pieces that the ABS sensors rely on) are pressed over the rear axle bearing collar/snap ring,, so I cut off the reluctor rings and WAA-LAA no more ABS'ed rear axle,and still a good bearing/collar/snap ring
the ABS'ed rear axle shafts are only about 3/16th longer,,

they slid right in,, 8) 8)

so I,, was able to install the factory 4Runner parking brake cable assembly,

I still need to install the rear shacks

I'm also working on a external trans cooler

I bought a Hayden trans cooler and this will go inline with the factory radiator cooler

I think it's been a little over a year now for the Stauns, for the other 4 members

and as far as I know,, they are very happy with them, 8)

they had the 1st gen Stauns,, they say, the new ones are alot more user friendly to install now

Cool. Let me know when you install them and maybe I can come help (if you want) to see how it goes. I've got one of those harbor freight manual tire changers too if you want to use it. It works pretty decent.

Hey jaime,

Rick said you got the rig running but were trying to get ABS and check engine lights to go away or something? I can help you with that stuff if you want.

The ABS light is pretty easy- just unplug BOTH the ABS computer (pass side kick panel) and the ABS relay (pass side inner fender in engine bay, not too far from the ABS actuator) and it should go out. That will probably also kill your speedometer too though if its not already dead (it may still work off the rear wheel sensors if your still running the stock rear axle?). My speedo didn't work anyway since I didn't have any wheel speed sensors, so I wired in Marlin's VSS off the t-case to get the speedo to work.

Thanks guys !,, yep I'm hoping that the trip next weekend will give the motivation I need to get this rig going all the way, even tho I'm only going in thru McKinstry and leaving it at the AJC ppty this trip,

(I'm going to hitch a ride with Luigi to lil Sluice, in his now 30/30 splined Longfield'ed 4Runner,!! 8) 8) 8)

I will soon start on the sliders, the kid I got it from had already bent up some sliders, but never finished them, I think I'll just add to those,, and than get the rear bumper ideas going,
than I really need to sell more Toyota parts to pay for the dual t-case set up,(about $1200.00 to $1400.00, since I have never wheeled an auto tranny,, it seems a tad high geared right now in low range with the 4.88s,
but Sean wheeled the crap out of his Cherokee with out t-case gears,, so we will see
8)
