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...

Make BOMBPROOF Toyota 4x4 steering stops for the soild front axle! SFA DIY How To
How to reinforce the stock steering stops on a Toyota Solid Front Axle

can lead to EXTREMELY expensive damage to your steering compents. This is
an easy way (if you can weld) to make sure the steering stops NEVER fail.
How to Remove a Birfield Joint (The fast way) aka The Camo Method Toyota 4x4 Solid Axle
This is the fastest way to access a Birfield joint. This method removes
the knuckle as an entire assembly from the Toyota soild or live axle
(1979-1985 U.S. trucks). Because the knuckle can be removed an an entire
unit you don't lose any of your wheel bearing pre-load. This method works
great on the trail if you break a birfield and need to replace it.
If you're looking for bomb-proof replacement birfields, this is the only
place to go:

Toyota straight axle modification
I cut this front axle and switched the pumpkin to the drivers side because
i have a 1964 toyota stout body on 1984 toyota running gear and a 1999
toyota 4runner 3.4 v6 in it and the front driveline comes out on the
drivers side so it was either put in a 94 tranny which the wiring is
different or just switch the axle like i did and then everything will plug
right in from the 4runner wiring harness instead of cutting and slicing
wqith the 94 tranny...and remember we did everything on a cheap budget

3rd Gen Toyota 4Runner Project Build: Rear Axle Seal Part 1
We will start this 3rd Gen Toyota 4Runner (1998) project in the garage by
replacing the rear axle seal and all of the components that are affected
while we have the 4Runner torn apart.
Part 1 focuses on the removal of the axle and all of the components, such
as drum brakes, brake lines, parking brake cables, and much more.
Part 2 will focus on re-installing all of these components.
The parts with the * in front require a machine press to be installed.
*Rear Wheel Bearing
*Rear Wheel Seal, Outer
Rear Wheel Seal, Inner
*Rear ABS Ring
*Rear Bearing Retainers: This is the important piece for the seal
Rear Axle O-Ring
I purchased the Inner Seal, O-Ring, and ABS ring from the Toyota dealer.
The rest of the equipment I bought from auto part stores.
I big confidence Boost that pushed
me to take this challenge on myself came from the very informative rear
axle seal thread over at Toyota-4Runner.org Forums:
