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... Thanks for Watching!

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 awesome! 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 major... Thanks for Watching!





94 4Runner: SHE DRIVES NOW! (08/26/11)
Well, i got to go for a little romp today, but it tired me out haha! im thinking the power steering pump is shot... cause i should be able to turn like the front tires are on ice with no problem! but i have to fight like hell to get the steering wheel to turn... I got the rear driveshaft in, its such a drastic angle haha! i hope i dont start going through ujoints now hahaha! Thanks for Watching!

CoTTORA Spring Creek Blow Out - Sept 2009
Carnage, Carnage, and more Carnage was the name of the game for this unlucky day. We had loads of carnage from a broken R&P, bent axle housing, cracked T-case, drive shaft dent-age, and then lots of body damage. But dang it was fun!
