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...

Well, despite my stitches, i worked on the 4runner. im stubborn as frig
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!
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!

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
(SFA) so that you never have to worry about them again. This is a super
cheap and effective trick that permanently solves a problem. If your
steering stops fail or collapse due to large tires and/or four-wheeling it
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.
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
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: 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...
