94 4Runner: 3.4L Custom Crossover Pipe & Add a Leaf to Front Springs (08/16/11)
Well, I start the day off by taking a shot of that 5 hour energy extra haha! not the best way to start the morning... ANYWAYS!
I got down to the house, and started working on the front leaf packs first thing. I got the packs broken down, and added a 1988 Ford Ranger leaf spring (i think the #3 spring from the pack) to my 3" rear lift springs... When i dropped the motor in, i lost an inch of height. the 4runner was sitting PERFECTLY level till then... So i had to add a leaf. The Ford springs Boosted the front up another 3"! so i am sitting 2" higher than before!
Then i had to run into town and get some Exhaust pipe bent to start working on the crossover pipe. the guy i talked to said they could do 1 7/8" pipe, but forgot that they dont have those dies anymore, so they couldnt bend my pipe... instead, they made me the crossover pipe out of 2" and gave it to me for a really good deal, plus they threw in a piece of 2.5" that i put to good use! now i just have to figure out how i want to attach the next piece to this crossover pipe... im going with 2.5" all the way back, so the stock toyota flanges arent going to work for me...

94 4Runner: Swap The Fuel Pump... Slight Problem Now... (10/20/12)
I got the fuel pump swapped out, but she's still hesitating off the line,
or if the RPM's are too low.. she fires up RIGHT away now, just like she
used to, and revs up way faster
now, but under load, she's still acting up... thinking it could be the
pre-filter filter i added onto the pump... once it warms up a bit, ill take
it out again, and see what happens without the blue rag...

94 4Runner: 3.4L Installed, More Wiring & Rear Disc Brakes (08/14/11)
Well, I started the day off working on the wiring. I found out that the
motors for the windows all work, so its definitely the master switch in the
door that is the problem.
Then I started working on the rear brakes. I had a weird caliper (figured
out that both are doing it) that wears the inside pad first and doesnt
really wear the outer pad...
Then I decided I wanted to get the engine in. So i got the other mount
changed over to Polyurethane and got the motor in! It fits awesome! Exhaust will be doable from underneath too!
Maybe ill get a shop to bend a piece of pipe in weird angles, then cut it
up to make my own crossover pipe. they surely wont charge much for a few
bends on a pipe that i could supply...
Then I got the rear suspension finished. i was able to finally get the
front right shock off, so i threw the 12" shocks on the rear. its just
Now i just have to seal the gas tank, install it, get a filler neck made,
and plug it in.
Then i have a few odds and ends to deal with... nothing else really

94 4Runner: Body Lift Installation + Custom Valve Spring Bump Stops! (07/29/11)
I was going to cut this video into 3 parts, but i figured might as well
just do a big one haha!
So I started installing the bodylift kit. i have to modify a couple of the
blocks because i think my rear mounts were a bit too low, so the front
lifted up... I started working on custom bump stops. I didnt want just
plain rubber ones, so i Remembered what my buddy did to build his! he made
bump stops from valve springs and pipes.
I also worked on my buddy's truck. I had to build custom Exhaust and replace a tie rod end.

1995 Toyota T100 1.5 inch front 2 inch back lift. 265/70/16 tires.
Here is a 1995 Toyota T100 with a 1.5" ball joint spacer and a 2" add a

easier to install.
Toyota 4Runner Rear Differential Pinion Seal Repair - Part 2
Few months back. I had a leak out from the differential that I hadn't got a
chance to fix. So on Dec. 15 of 2010. I finally fix it myself. Got it done
in forty-five minute. The only thing that slow me down is screwwing back
all the four nuts. Also did a extension of the breather. This is part 2...
Skip some parts because of the time not working. Forgot to shut down the
camera to make it short. Also I don't have any movie maker that can cut
some scene off in HD mode... Also using this camera on a low light so might
benefit some camera shopper...
Installing Wheel Spacers for Toyota 4x4 Solid Front Axle. The pros and cons of using wheel spacers.
How to install wheel spacers on a Toyota 4x4. My thoughts on using wheel
spacers, some of the pros and cons of using wheel spacers, and some of the
tricks I've learned in dealing with wheel spacers over the years.
Generally, I'm a fan of wheel spacers. The biggest thing is just to
realize that you've deviated from the factory tolerances and that parts
(like wheel bearings) are going to wear faster from strain that falls outside the
design parameters. but, if you're running tires big enough to need wheel
spacers, you probably know that already.
I say it in the video, but I can't say it enough: Check those nuts that
hold the spacer on often. Wheeling rigs have a freakish ability to loosen
everything attached to them.
