I haven't done anything to mine for ever but That should change soon. I got my welder a while back but still have to wire a breaker box and a 220 plug in my garage. I have a little over 3,000 miles to go for my next timing belt so I will probly take it off the road then to put in the turbo and after I practice up on my welding I want to built drop brackets for my front suspention and extended track arms on the rear for a 6" lift. I like the idea of the SAS but I want to see what I can do with the stock IFS for now. Both of you keep up the work and send pics when you take them.

Wow! It looks great. Who owns the 2 door? Is that a Toyota axle? Thats about how I want mine to sit. All it takes is time and money.

That's Rob's. It looks great, huh. He said he'd give it to me after he finishes it. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/shiner.gif" alt="" />

It's an '85 Toy axle with the Birf. eliminator kit, coilovers up front, 1/4 ellip. in the rear, ARBs F/R, Hi-steer (I think, correct me if I'm wrong, Rob), 35" rubbers, hydrolic steering, Warn winch, and lots o' work.

That's how I want mine to sit, as well, but I'll be going with leaves to simplify everything (and most importantly, make it cheaper.)

Nice work - both you guys! <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/kewl.gif" alt="" />

Yup they r 35's. And nope I ain't gunna give it to ya <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/shiner.gif" alt="" />. Time & money is correct = alot of both. So far, I havent drove it since Feb 10th & spent about 15k. Go figure, I bought it bran-New for 14k. The original plan was 5k & 3 months.

My first plan was to go with the leafs, but didn't want to lessen the approach & departure angles. The front leaf shackle would of stuck out in front of the bumper & same deal in the rear. Would of been alot easier & cheaper by far.

I have made the wheelbase 99" with this setup & should work out perfect?

That's precisely why I'm going to use reveresed shackels up front. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/kewl.gif" alt="" />

rob- coupla things:

i hate your front bumper, not entirely, but just the fact that it doesn't go to the corners- sorry, it just bugs the hell outta me, maybe it's just me........

i love the rock sliders, i mean, that's exactly how i want mine except maybe for the front-most mounting bar in the wheel well area......

did you do a body lift after all? why is your rear bumper lower than the body?

did your come out lower in the rear too? will be evening mine up with some new front upper buckets and 4" TJ coils. may go coil-overs later. also building new front shock hoops, current design works, but is a bit stiff and lacking in room- gonna lean them back a little.

not trying to be mean about the bumper, i'm sorry, it just bothers me- looks like you ran outta tube or took bad measurements at the ends or something, maybe like you built it for a Sammy and the guy never paid. sorry...[kringing, awaiting blow-back].

edit* ps- one more thing- what're you going to do about those disks hanging out in the front? i mean, they could be easy rock magnets.

Morgan, shackle reversal will lessen some of the front overhang but if your going to run 35's you will have to set the front axle forward = more than stock. Just do some measurements before you go & buy leafs.
___________________________________________________________
Dave, I hate your front bumper also, Not entirely, Whats up with RED? & where is your winch mount for it?

My plan is to run tubing from the ends of the front bumper over the wheel opening. Front & rear. Kinda like an exto roll cage & yes it was built for a Sammi. I like it alot. Your rear bumper bugs the crap out of me = more than the red one in front. Why didn't ya make it wrap around the ends? Did ya build it for a Ranger & the guy skipped town?

As for the front most mounting bar on the sliders = I was tired of the wheels chewing up the fenders.

I did the body lift 1 1/2 years ago & never did raise the bumper to meet up with the body. I have plans to fill the gap with tubing also. So far the stock rear bumper looks better than any custom ones I've seen on sporties.

No my Rig does not sit lower in the rear, it is parked with the rear wheels in the gutter. It is actually dead nuts level at the door belt mouldings. My rear suspension is adjustable by 1" in the rear up n down, The front = 4" down & 6" up.

Not trying to be mean, but I hate red & all 4x4 rigs should have a place to mount a winch. {blow-back done}

P.S. the front rotors are only $45.00 each & if I kill one no big loss. Was going to build some gaurds & might in the future. It is easyer to carry a spare at this point.
