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
Though, most of tomorrow is going to be spent wrenching on my Mom's motor
home/camper van thing...
Thanks for Watching!

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.
Rob's 89 Toyota Rockcrawler from 35's to 42's
These are some random clips of my Toyota pickup from Tuttle Creek (near
Randolph, KS) and down at Disney, OK. Started out with a Toyota straight
axle swap and 35" procomp xterrains... Ended up 1 ton axles (d60/14b) and
42" super swamper IROKs. Had a blast in that rig. Yes the engine was making
a loud clatter but kept chuggin' away. The guy I sold the motor to called
to let me know the cam was wore so much and that's why we could never get
the valves adjusted right. Front springs was a home brew toy rear pack, 63"
chevy rears. Running a 2.28+4.7 doubler with twin stick.
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:

The "Camo Method" is named after a moderator on Pirate 4x4. I don't know
if he actually came up with it, but we've always called it the "Camo
