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...

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...

figure out the first time I did it, so I thought I'd do a video on it to
show everyone else! Just reverse the steps for removing the window and

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
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
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...

Toyota 4x4 quick release door hinges (how to make them)
A tutorial on how I make the hinges on Toyota 4x4's quick release capable.
Over many years of fourwheeling I've found that being able to switch out
and run steel tube doors, or half doors, or NO doors can be a big advantage
on the trail. This video is a demonstration of how I modify the stock
Toyota hinges so that the doors can be removed without any tools. This
video is specifically showing the hinge from a first gen truck ('79-'83)
but it works on everything at least up through the first generation of
