94 4Runner: Rear Axle Positioning (08/12/11)

Well, I got the spring hangers cut off Beastie today, then I welded them to the 4runner frame. Moved the axle 4" forward, and set the shocks, brake lines, shackles, everything up just perfectly! also centered the tire in the wheel well! Then I ran the rear brake lines, got them all tied in. I need to rebuild a rear caliper though, Ill do a video on how to do that soon. I also started on wiring. I got the fuel tank wiring all figured out! now I just need to fix the small leak in the tank ffs... I need to put another leaf spring up front to level the truck out once the engine and stuff is in her. She's sitting level right now, and i have a TON of weight to put back into her... 80% in the front though haha Thanks for Watching! p.s. who read everything this time?

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





94 4Runner: She Rolls Now! (Axles and Wheels Installed!) (08/11/11)
Well, despite my stitches, i worked on the 4runner. im stubborn as frig haha! 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! awesome! 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! Thanks for Watching!





94 4Runner: Wiring Wiring Wiring & Back Window Fix! (08/13/11)
Well, as the title says... this is all i got up to... i tried bending some Exhaust pipe, but my bender just kinks it... gunna have to get a shop to bend me up some pieces... i am almost ready to put the engine/trans/x-fer cases in! then i gotta shorten the rear driveshaft. I also couldnt for the life of me figure out how to get the back window working... my brother is a genius at 4runners! he told me that i had to have the rear wiper in its rest position to be able to roll the window down. I didnt even have the rear wiper plugged in haha! no wonder she wasnt workin... Thanks for Watching!
