Hell, I would build - but if you want a good 4Runner, check out a trip to Phoenix or California for a clean truck with no rust or eastern type problems! If you are going to sell what you have - keep (obviously) what you could reuse to the new rig! :):

hey fellas ive been TINKERING with my toy here the last 2 weeks since i got it and heres what frankenstien is up to.

-stock 22r with underwater snorkel and waterproof igniyion for water crossings.

-lincoln locked front and rear

-10 inches of lift all around

-half elliptical rear springs on top of 9 inch lift springs.

-front 11 inch with homemade revolver shackles

-both front and rear custom shock mounts using factory length shocks mounted at center of both axles.

-all shocks and sway bar mounted on quick disconnects

-front and rear shafts with cv joints,both at tops of shafts.

-reinforced frame(where they rot)and 2 new crossmembers fo strength.

-the 1 crossmember is also the new mount for the fuel tank and a driveshaft safety loop for the rear.

-mounts on frame for a spare front and rear shaft to carry with me.

-permanently mounted tow strap at rear for pulling or being pulled.

-all poly bushings underneath

and the truck as ugly as hell.

before i did the front and the sway bar still attached i lifted the passenger rear tire 37 inches above the ground and removed the dr rear tire and stood on the rear drum and it touched the ground at the same time the front wheels were also on the ground.

what do you think fella.do i have a formula going here or what?

any and all opinions appreciated.

sorry i will be running 35 inch bfgs mts and my 39 inch mickeys will fit also if i dont flex it too hard.i probably cant turn the 39s but will be able to turn the 35s.

looking for a 20 r head that isnt ported and a header for it.those 83 ponies under the hood aint enough.

will be installing a sbc in it probably next winter.for now i hope the clutch doesnt crap out.that would suck [email protected]!

Most people are building ramps at 30degree's now, it seems to be the new "standard" The ramps are about 20-24 inches wide and probably need to be 10'-12' long.
