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!

This week we have a video giving you a run down of how to install a body lift into a Toyota Hilux Surf. We cover most of the do's and don'ts and give you a insight into how its all done. Whilst this is only on the surf, the same principles apply to any truck and should be a guide for any model in general. Feel free to check us out on facebook at www.facebook.com/groups/nzoffroader

Body Lift Installation on a Toyota 4Runner
In this video we show you how to install a Toytec 2" Body Lift on a 2002 Toyota 4runner 4x4. Even though this modification is done on a Toyota 4runner, the information you receive in this video could help you put a body lift on another make and model truck. The technique and steps would be similar but the number and location of body mounts might be different depending on the truck you're lifting. **Note - One thing we don't mention in the video is you will now have a 2" gap between the body and front bumper and same goes for the rear bumper. The bumpers are attached to the frame and don't move when you lift the body. There are ways to address this by drilling different holes in the mounting brackets but we didn't bother showing this because Eric was going to replace his damaged front bumper with an aftermarket one in the near future anyway. If you do a search on the internet, you'll find a write-up or two how to do it if you don't want there to be gap between the bumper and body.

Project "Body lift removal" Heads up!
Hey guys it's getting harder and harder to load my bike onto this lifted truck so it's time to say goodbye to my body lift and for also other reasons. I currently have a 3'' body lift with 17 tires. So after I have removed the lift and change the tire height I will lose about 4inches. I will be making a series of videos showing step by step of the removal process that way it won't bore you too much. It should start off like this. Cross my fingers nothing breaks! Step#1 Spray some kind of penetrating fluid on all nuts and bolts you are planning on removing. Since they have been on for so many years I am going to start about a week or two ahead of time. Remove as much weight as possible from the vehicle. Step#2 Move Exhaust out of the way so the body doesn't scrape the heck out of it. Step#3 Remove rear Bumper. Since the rear looks like it will be easier to remove I will start with it first. Shouldn't be too hard since I have replaced it before. Step#4 Remove bolts/ nuts, extended gasoline and all hardware in the way so the Bed can be lowered. Take off tail gate to minimize weight. Step#5 Install Zero Lift hardware for the bed. Install Rear bumper. Step#6 Remove front bumper Step#7 Remove front Cab Bolts and hardware. Step#8 Remove Steering shaft extension and shifter linkage and anything else in the way. I may remove the front seat also to minimize weight. Step#9 Install Zero lift hardware for Cab Step# 10 install steering shaft /shifter linkage/Front Bumper These steps may be altered at anytime. I do not claim to be a professional I just want to save money by doing it myself. If you have bothered to read all of this please let me know in the comments section. Thank you to my loyal subscribers and to all that may benefit from these videos.
