Turbo Supra 4Runner
Crawling in Moab, UT April 2009.
I was having trouble because I didn't have the rear locker wired up. Of
course it doesn't help having wet tires. Unfortunately my baby had to be
sold in order to purchase my FZJ80. Filmed and edited by user russtuff.

85 4runner on rocky mountain loop
Shakedown run in my 85 4Runner after a year and a half build. Specs are
22R, W 56, Marlin Ultimate Dual Crawlers clocked 10 degrees, Lock Right in
the rear and open in the front, geared 4.10. Lift comes from Superlift in
the front with stock rears with extended shackles, add a leaf and 2 inch
blocks from Auto Zone (Which I don't recommend.) Armor comes from Trail
gear for the front axle and All Pro for the sliders and a heavily massaged
Triple X cross member for the clocked cases. The axle wrap you hear my
camera man talking about started to crush the lift blocks down around the
spring perch causing the pinion to rotate up. If you look closely you can
see it. I later did one of the harder lines at Kodak Rock before the
damage was noticed. 63 inch Chevy's are in my near future.....
