Got pics of the coilovers at ride height? Looks like you can adjust the dual rate stops down quite a bit. Also with all the new found flex, the stock control arms are something to keep an eye on. When they twist enough they will crack

I found cracks in all kinds of stuff, was welding like a mad man.....and the stops are at max bottom currently front and rear...but I will handle that pretty soon. I also have limiting straps I took pictures of too but the camera didnt want to spit them out..


Going to cut it all off and build a custom LA system double triangulated in rear and not sure up front yet, I like to go fast...I dont have the ideal driveshaft angle at the moment, surprised its still in 1 piece. I might just extend the stock uppers for now to help with that a bit until I build something better, wouldnt be too hard.

Going to Havasu tonight, taking the Jeep (700mi rd trip) with a little trailer I made from an HF trailer to hold 2 dirtbikes..gonna be fun to try the Jeep out in Az, that place is off-roading heaven, I can drive for days without touching pavement, I can drive all the way to Kingman through the mountains if I get bored, nothing to see there so I dont, lol.


But back on topic, I got a lot to do, just getting it done little by little, but the major issue right now (keeping me from a tummy tuck, for which I already custom built a trans crossmember for) is my driveshaft and my pinion angle (arms) so I gotta a lot to do before that happens.


I am part of Tacoma World forum (I have a custom 98 Tacoma with an LS1/T56 drivetrain) and we had a meet and I was able to outrun a bunch of mid-traveled trucks (in my Jeep) ! I think it was driver, cause if I had one of those trucks, there is no way I would be running sweeper! I would think they would outrun me easily, but apparently not..

Now just waiting for Mr Blaine to come in and point out what I did wrong, lol!
Thanks for the feedback guys.

First thing you did wrong was not start a build thread. I like your idea of a 4link rear. A 3link up front is your best bet.

I think this is one of the "cat" trails.

I wanna go, but I don't think I'll be able to make it. Have to put money away for a family trip to Hawaii this coming summer, and I'll be looking for a new job too. Not looking forward to January.

That looks SO cool. I can't wait. When is the 'warm-up' run, Jeff?

Looking like there won't be one. We could go right after xmas but it seems unlikely to be able to go twice in January; it's a little too far for me to justify a day run.

Maybe new years weekend?
