Well, despite my stitches, i worked on the 4runner. im stubborn as frig haha! I did it all without lifting too! not bad. I got the rear axle under the springs, installed the ubolts, then jacked it up and bolted the tires on! awesome! I have a seized caliper on the back though... So i have a few little things i need to do. Gotta move the spring hangers forward about 5" as well to center the axle and line up the shock tabs! Thanks for Watching!

94 4Runner: Wiring Wiring Wiring & Back Window Fix! (08/13/11)
Well, as the title says... this is all i got up to... i tried bending some Exhaust pipe, but my bender just kinks it... gunna have to get a shop to bend me up some pieces... i am almost ready to put the engine/trans/x-fer cases in! then i gotta shorten the rear driveshaft. I also couldnt for the life of me figure out how to get the back window working... my brother is a genius at 4runners! he told me that i had to have the rear wiper in its rest position to be able to roll the window down. I didnt even have the rear wiper plugged in haha! no wonder she wasnt workin... Thanks for Watching!





1975 Dodge Sportsman Brake Booster & Custom Leaf Packs! (08/09/11)
Well, I drove into town to pick up a few things. Got a brake Booster for my Mom's 1975 Dodge Sportman camper-van thing. Got that swapped, and its working better. I got u-bolts, longer shackle bolts, and center bolts for the rear leaf springs on the 4runner. I also got a clutch kit for the 4runner :) Well, I took the leaf springs apart, built custom packs, installed them, and was working on getting the rear axle under the 4runner, when I had a bad accident... I was pretty tired by the time i was working on getting the axle under the 4runner. Thinking i was out from underneath it, i stood up... i caught the rusty, jagged, sharp edge of the rear quarter panel with my back... I went to the hospital, and got it cleaned, and stitched up. I did a pretty good job haha, the doctor removed 6 or 7 pieces of metal and debris. He even had to cut a chunk of flesh off because he couldnt get the metal out of it! anyHways! haha, Thanks for Watching!





94 4Runner: Rear Axle Positioning (08/12/11)
Well, I got the spring hangers cut off Beastie today, then I welded them to the 4runner frame. Moved the axle 4" forward, and set the shocks, brake lines, shackles, everything up just perfectly! also centered the tire in the wheel well! Then I ran the rear brake lines, got them all tied in. I need to rebuild a rear caliper though, Ill do a video on how to do that soon. I also started on wiring. I got the fuel tank wiring all figured out! now I just need to fix the small leak in the tank ffs... I need to put another leaf spring up front to level the truck out once the engine and stuff is in her. She's sitting level right now, and i have a TON of weight to put back into her... 80% in the front though haha Thanks for Watching! p.s. who read everything this time?





94 4Runner: 5VZ-FE (3.4L) Fires Up For First Time! (08/21/11)
Well, I got all the wiring done, and installed the gas tank, only to have a setback... But I got that dealt with, and turned the key, and she fired up! took a bit though... It wouldnt have had a problem if i had my car started to begin with... the 4runner just wasnt getting enough juice... Thanks for Watching!





Toyota 4x4 brake modification makes broken Birfield access much quicker! Quick release caliper.
Toyota for some reason made the mount for the brake caliper hardline a trapped unit. Because of the way it was designed you have to disconnect the brake line if you want to remove the caliper from the steering knuckle, or if you want to remove the knuckle from the axle. Even under shop conditions I hate bleeding brakes, so imagine how much fun it is if you would have to open the brake lines out on the trail (like when you're fixing a blown Birfield joint.) Spilling brake fluid on the ground out in the woods is not cool either. This mod allows you to remove the caliper while the brake hard line and flexible line are still attached. If you don't have to open the system, you don't have to bleed after you put it back together. This mod alos comes in super handy in the shop. As you can eliminate the brake bleeding step in any job that requires that you remove the caliper (Wheel bearing adjustment, rotor replacement, steering knuckle removal, etc.) If you don't have to bleed the brakes you just saved yourself a bunch of time. If you've had to disconnect the brake hard line at the caliper, his trick also makes getting that tiny brake hard line fitting that mounts under the bracket started into the soft line fitting threads a breeze. This is the first mod that I do to any Solid Front Axle (SFA) Toyota that wanders into my life. It's such an easy mod I'm just dumbfounded that Toyota didn't make the brackets like this from the get-go. Maybe it was a planned move to increase the service time...increased service time = more money in the service department's pocket...





94 4Runner: Body Lift Finished + Misc Stuff... (07/30/11)
Well, I got the bodylift finished. I had to modify 2 of the blocks, but i got it done. Now I just have to tighten everything down! I went and saw Grandma today. She's doing a bit better. She is out of ICU and in stable condition. She may be coming home on monday. 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!





94 4Runner: Bombproof Motor Mounts & Steering Shaft (08/04/11)
Well, I waited for the delivery guy to show up with my motor mounts. In the meantime, i started working on getting the steering linkages setup to finish the engine bay off. It was a huge pain in the butt, but i got it all finished. Then my motor mounts showed up, man are they beef! Then I was just up to my usual randomness... Thanks for Watching! p.s. how many of you actually read all this text? if you read this, leave a comment saying you read it :)

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!
