The dark side

After stripping my jeep down to this a few months ago, I just picked up a new rig. I always said I wanted to go toyota, so that is what I picked up

Old rigs carcass:



new rig



Plans are:

switch out the spools for detroits
Swap out the 35s for some 37s
Roll Cage
Bob the bed
Front bumper w/ a mount for my winch off my old rig

That is sweet, you are going to have too hook up with Dave and Javier from Javiers Autos/Gulf Coast Crawl Shop. Javier drives an FJ on 39.5's and Dave is building a Yota buggy on 39's.

And just to drop a shameless plug , here is what you will be leading me around at Trees in when the build is done in a month or two: http://www.pirate4x4.com/forum/showthread.php?t=550186

I am going to keep them for a little while, I have a few things that need to be done before swapping out the tires. I will post them up for sale on the board when I do decide to unload them

the beauty of toyotas as compared to jeeps, is that the axles can be built to handle alot of abuse. The only thing I am going to do to the axles is swap out the spools for detroits

Plus mogs would be way to heavy
