94 4Runner: She Rolls Now! (Axles and Wheels Installed!) (08/11/11)

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!

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: 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!





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: 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: 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. Thanks for Watching!





94 4Runner: Brake/Clutch Assembly + Center Console (07/17/11)
Today I got a fair bit done. I took the 4runner automatic brake pedal assembly, and added all the clutch pedal bracketry to it. Got it installed, and now Im ready for a clutch master cylinder! Then I started messing around with a center console/lockbox thing for the 4runner. should be pretty sweet when its done, though it might be a while, cause i broke my sheet metal brake today haha! Thanks for Watching!





94 4Runner: Solid Front Axle + Crossover Steering Setup! & Poor Beastie :( (08/08/11)
Well, I got the motor yanked out first thing, before I started recording... I didnt have a good morning, and didnt want to be angry on the vlog, so i waited till i calmed down a bit... Then i got the front axle out from under Beastie, and slid under Beastie 2.0! Got it in, but it took a little longer than I had hoped. By then, it was just too hot, so i had to take a break! As soon as the sun went down, I started tearing the rear axle out. Its almost ready to go in. I just have to pick up some u-bolts tomorrow and then build some custom leaf packs... Though, most of tomorrow is going to be spent wrenching on my Mom's motor home/camper van thing... Thanks for Watching!





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.

94 4Runner: 85 Pickup Dismantle "Beastie's Last Day" (08/07/11)
Well, today I pulled the trigger on the teardown. Got the transfer case and transmission out, and got 90% of the wiring out. Tomorrow, the engine comes out, as well as the axles. Im going to need to get some more ubolts for the rear, as im not going to be using the tacoma rear springs (i think... ill have to see how it goes... MAYBE i could build a custom tacoma set... i just need the 2nd spring to be full length... i cannot have the top spring taking the entire load, because it kills it... Thanks for Watching!





94 4Runner: Rear Disc Setup & More Little Things... (08/25/11)
Well, I woke up early today so I could get the driver side shock tower welded before the sun hit it haha! I got the brake line flared too, but not before I forgot to put the fitting on first DOH! Then I show off my rear disc brake mounts, and swapped out the axle seal. One thing i forgot to record though, was the rear wiper assembly... I went over to my buddy's place, and grabbed the wiper assembly off his parts 4runner. Then I started putting the interior back together a bit. I still have to repair or replace the power steering box, run Exhaust, and get front shocks. The rear driveshaft is finished, and will be going on tomorrow! might do a little romping vid for you guys! haha! Thanks for Watching!

94 4Runner: Install Clucth/Transmission/Transfer Cases! (08/23/11)
Well, with a lot of running around, i got the Clutch, Transmission, and Transfer cases bolted up, and good to go! did it in 3.5 hours too! frig did i pay for it though... pushed way too hard! thought i gave myself a hernia or something... Thanks for Watching!





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: Toyota Full Floating Rear! & Wheelin Clips! (06/24/11)
I start to work on a full floater setup for the toyota rear axle using parts from the solid front axle. Figured out that i need some 30 spline axles, so until i get 300$ for axles, its on hold. Went wheelin with the guys too! lots of gopro footage, but it was dark in the forest areas, so most of it sucks, and isnt viewable! Thanks for Watching!
